    LGP Day 4 report

    It’s the Quarters, and now we’re back to just three courts:

    First up is Busanan vs. Xuan Deng:

    For anyone watching this match with their eyes closed, they would be able to tell easily how the match was progressing from Deng’s shouts – 42 of them and she would be the winner. Unfortunately she only reached 31 (+ 1 from a shuttle she thought was in but was called out), so our eyes closed person would deduce that Busanan had achieved a good victory without undue drama (or noise):

    Marin vs. Hera Desi (INA) – a tougher proposition for our eyes closed spectator as both girls shout after every won point. But with some careful acoustic coaching, it should still be possible to follow the game – Marin’s shout being deeper in tone that Hera’s:

    Actually, Hera played a superb first game and by the time Marin realised she was actually going to have to play serious Badminton to win it was already too late to save the first set. Still, she clicked into top gear and eased through games 2 & 3 to reach the semi’s.


    Next, Raj Ouseph took on rising star Zulfadli ZulKiffli, but the Malaysian was nonplussed by Raj’s resolute defence and steeply angled stick smashes and lost in straight games:

    Anyone serious about studying the art of level doubles play can do no better than watch the Singapore pair of Shinta Mulio Sari and Lei Yao (who were up against Peng Du and Mengdjing Xiong (CHN)):

    The fluency and efficiency of the Singapore pair, the intuitive and unspoken understanding between them is wonderful to watch, and it was only due to a flurry of small errors that they allowed the Chinese pair to steal the second game. That the match went to three games was, in fact, a hardship many of us were happy to endure as it did at least give that much extra time to watch the lovely Peng Du:

    And now for a competition! There is a prize of one Adidas Badminton clacker to the first person who can correctly answer this question: Just exactly how tall is Danish men’s doubles player Mads Pieter Kolding (round your answer to the nearest metre, please)?

    I really like this venue. You can make a complete circuit of the arena on this mid level walkway:

    And the coloured seating is clever because it creates an intimate effect, even when the arena is empty. The seats themselves are simple plastic affairs, but in fact are surprisingly comfortable, even after a whole day’s Badminton watching:

    Quick round up of a few other matches. Feature match of the day was Victor against Xue Song (CHN), and Victor was tested a little more than in his earlier matches, but still came through in two. Victor has, by the way, a powerful backhand drive/smash which he uses regularly and which is nice to see:

    Kirsty’s fariytale of a double semifinal appearance came to grief when she and Jillie Cooper were outwitted by the Danes Kruse and Roepke:

    The story of the day was, of course, Kristina Gavnholt’s victory over Wang Xin:

    Followers of European Badminton will already know Kristina as a player fully capable of winning international challenger events, and Wang may have underestimated her. While Wang certainly produced moments of pure class, she was off her range today and curiously laboured in her movement around the court. We hope she continues her comeback, but for now let’s applaud Kristina for this career defining victory:

    OK, I'm off to the semi's.

    She has some way to go before actually getting onto the elite team, I think.

    THW is I think a more balanced player than XS who has a good attack but weaker defence. Hopefully, THW can take the crown tomorrow should he, expectably, clear today's hurdle over Ouseph. Admittedly, VA or HKV will most certainly give THW a run for their money.
    Quite obvious that the European players have been preparing hard for the European circuit. All three European semi-finalists in the MS skipped the last 3 tournaments in Asia. Their preparations are already bearing fruits, VA especially. Though disappointed I was actually not surprised by XS's defeat. He beat VA in WJC in a difficult 3-set encounter after VA just about made it on time to Japan after his finals against Liew Daren (C W Feng?) in an SS tournament in Europe. The rivalries among Kento, VA and XS in the coming years will be interesting.
    AS for THW,i do hope he can get through to the finals and win his second SS title. The other 3 S-finalists will have their chances too. Any player who can reach the last-4 stage must be good in his own way, in the on-going tournament at least.

    What a thrilling XD SF match between INA's back-up pair of Irfan Fadhilah/Weni Anggraini and the GER pair of Fuchs/Michels. As expected, the GER pair won 22-20 in the decider-set.
