    Rooting for:

    Nina Vislova to walk away with at least one title: in the WD or XD. She's long overdue for a podium win.

    Beatriz Corrales to make her move in WS, following in the footsteps of Carolina.

    Young Jonatan Christie to make it past 3 qualifying rounds, along with Ihsan Maulana Mustofa, and make it through to Thursday, then make it through the madness on Friday and hopefully to the semis.

    Qualifying INA youngsters Christie and Mustofa are through R32, as are most of the seeded entries in MS.

    Stefani Stoeva was the only seed to fall in the WS in R32. Maja Pavlinic has been having a very ordinary run after showing some promise last year. Hope she gets it together, soon.

    It's like a EU convention in the MD progression to R16, with an Indonesian and a Malaysian pair each joining in to give it a very trans-continental flavour!

    The Stoeva girls lead the way in WD, but the field is pretty strong and things are likely to get very confused in R16.

    Nina Vislova is still on course for 2 titles, having won both her WD and XD matches with minimum fuss.

    Jonatan Christie is through to the QF, after beating Arvind Bhat [6] in 5-sets. If he can beat Lucas Clearbout, he will face his senior Andre Kurniawan Tedjono [4] for a place in the Final. Ihsan Maulana Mustofa lost to Ng Ka Long also in 5 tight-sets. Ihsan was leading 7-3 and then 9-7, before being overtaken. What a wasted chance

    Hanna Ramadhini
    also progresses to QF, after yet another impressive victory over Petya Nedeltcheva [3] in 3-sets. She will face another seeded player, Sabrina Jacquet [5], for a place in the last 4.

    Well done Jonatan Christie as he beat Andre Kurniawan Tedjono [4] in yet another gruelling 5-setters that lasted almost an hr: 10-11, 11-5, 11-9, 7-11, 11-7. So both Jo and Ihsan have beaten Andre in back-to-back Semi-Finals! Jo will face Angus Ng Ka Long [3] in the Final later today.

    In the WS, Dinar Dyah Agustine progresses to the Final after beating the top-seed Beatrix Corrales in straight-sets. She will face her compatriot Hanna Ramadhini, who has beaten Cheung Ngan Yi [8] today in 4-sets. So, 1 title in WS is secured. How about that for a refreshing change.

    Another Final beckons for Meiliana Jauhari/Variella Aprilsasi as well, as they are leading 2 sets to 0.

    3 Finals involving INA players, with 1 of them an all-INA Final in WS.

    Meiliana Jauhari/Variella Aprilsasi are looking to win their first IC title as a partnership as they challenge the top-seeded Stoeva sisters in the WD Final. All the best to them!

    The money is on Hanna Ramadhini to beat her less-experienced compatriot Dinar Dyah Agustine in the WS FInal.

    However, the big match will be between Jonatan Christie and Angus Ng Ka Long in the MS.

    What a nail-biting 1-hr Final match between Jonatan Christie and Angus Ng Ka Long in the MS Final and Jo triumphed by a whisker: 9-11, 9-11, 11-6, 11-9, 11-10. Jo was 0-2 down but took the third-set quite comfortably. The fourth set was also going Jo's way till it was 10-7 and Angus nearly leveled the score to make it 10-10 but it was not to be and Jo took the fourth-set 11-9. It was a ding-dong battle in the decider set, with Jo leading 9-7, but again Angus fought back and had a match pt at 10-9. Luckily, Jo saved the match pt and eventually sealed the decider 11-10. What a close shave indeed!

    Meanwhile, Hanna Ramadhini also justified her selection for the European tour after beating Dinar Dyah Agustine also in 5-sets. Overall, it was a productive fortnight for both Hanna and Jo as they reached QF of Dutch Open GP and won the Swiss IC title.

    As for Ihsan Maulana Mustofa, he reached the Final of the Dutch Open GP and only managed to progress till R16 in the Swiss IC. Dinar Dyah Agustine reached the Final of the Swiss IC and lost by a whisker in R32 of the Dutch Open GP to Nana Vainio.

    We will probably see them in the Asian IC tourneys in Nov: Bahrain & Malaysia.

    Congratulations to all the winners!

    It's great to see the Philippines in the winners' table as well (in the MD), in an international tournament. This is good news for Peter Gabriel MAGNAYE and Paul Jefferson VIVAS in particular, and PHI badminton in general.

    Not the most happy ending for Nina Vislova, though- she had to settle for a semi-final berth in the WD, and runner-up in XD. Next time...

    Bulgaria's Stoeva sisters stoele the shoew in WD, justifying their seeding.

    And the #2 seeded XD pair from France, Ronan Labar/Emile Lefel took the prize.

    And as badMania says, a great way for the young INA players to end a pretty productive fortnight!

    If anybody wants to watch MD finals , here is the link..

    They played well. They are well deserved to be the winners. Unfortunately, the recording has only last 3 games. Congrats for the winners. You made your country proud. Phillipinnes player made a service error (throwing long) at match point. At the point of sudden death, they nailed it. Very well done.

    8th seed beating 1st seed is extra ordinary for phillipine players.
