    With Lili Zhou playing, the U.S. has a much better chance in the Uber.

    I Know huh. I remember in the 2004 US Open Lili Zhou destroyed Canadian No 1 single Charmain Reid easily during 1 or 2 round of the main draw. The reason of my prediction is 3 to 2 is that we might lose one single and 1 double event.

    But yesterday during the playing time at OCBC, I heard US Uber CUp Team has already advanced by beating Canadian Team 3- 0 but i can't see the results yet at www.tournamentsoftware.com

    Harimau: thanks for the update.

    Raju and Milroy play each other tough, they always go three sets.

    Interesting to see Howard and Tony split up (to share the wealth) and play with other partners.

    Agree. I know quite a few SGVBCers are injured and elected not to play.

    I think the other issue is the Entry Fee is quite pricey ....plus the distance (Gas price is rather expensive now) .... it actually could be keys determinant to the draw of the crowd.

    Comparing to the BAY Area Open which draws an average of 250 - 300 players everytime they hold the tourney, i kind of wonder as to why in the down south tourneys we have not seen that kind of number in any tournaments at all. Is it because we dont have enough players in the south or what ???

    Yes, the entry fee was very expensive...we have plenty of players in the south.

    But where are all those hard core fan who always play in SGVBC until am 2 - 3 am. It seems to me they almost never play at Open tourneys ....

    I have seen lots of good players (street players) but they are raw talents who are capable of playing excellent badminton even w no proper training. They hardly participate in the USA Badminton sanctioned event .... do you know roughly why ???

    Who you calling a "street player"?! ...Oh wait, that's what I am.

    And we don't play until 2-3am, we play until 3-4am, get it right.

    Why? Lots of reasons:

    1) Some go to church on Sunday

    2) Some have family obligations

    3) Some play for fun, not for glory

    4) Some don't like tourney formats/the wait, your whole weekend is gone

    5) Some don't feel they are good enough to play

    6) Some only want to play a few matches, not potentially 5-6 matches that can last all day/weekend: physically too demanding

    7) Entry fees cost a lot these days

    8) I'm sure there are many more reasons that are time and commitment related.

    Thanks for the feedback, DInk...... i see it they are all legitimate reasons ......
    It is just too bad and sad to see cause in northern cal, people who already retired from badminton still come out to support the sport they play even they know that their glory days are over e.g. Ben Lee, Stanley Wu, Kevin Yang, Jin Song, etc..... and esp the highschoolers, they know if they meet one of the USA Badminton Players they will get toasted but they still come out and take up the challenge to find out where they take as compared to our BOB (best of the best). So i dont know what to say .... perhaps players up there have more itch for tournaments than players down south ....just my 2 cents.

    COngratulations to Eva Lee of OCBC for winning a triple crown (1st Pl in WS, WD, MX) in the recent Dave Freeman tournament in San Diego. She basically dominated all the events. Also for Raju Rai to get the double crown in MS & MD.

    Congratulations to other OCBC players as well for the job well done.
