I thought Roslin has good records against Boonsak, but he is not in good form lately. LeeTS's match with LeeHI could be interesting too since he lost very closely in their previous meet. KuanBH really needs to prove himself to qualify to final, but I have doubt whether he can get past LeeHI in semifinal. I think final will be between LeeHI and Boonsak or Sony.

Overall, the results went according to my expectation except for a couple of matches. Nana forced Kanako (World No 10) to a 3-setter, which is a very good match experience for her. Now, if only Firda can create an upset by beating Kaori Mori (or at least force another 3-setter), the women's singles camp in PBSI will definitely be upbeat after their disappointment of not being able to compete in the recent World Championships. Hendrawan should now focus on getting both of his players to be in at least in the world top 20 in a year time!
Hendra/Joko will face Njoto/Liu which they have beaten before and I fancy them to reach the semi-final! Markis/Hendra will be tested against the new Korean pair of Hwang/Han today, but, they should be superior. I hope Muhd Rizal/Endang and Devin/Vita can continue their progress and become the second and third pair after Nova/Lilyana. Devin/Vita is showing good progress after only 3 tournaments, while Muhd Rizal/Endang is a young pair.
As for women's doubles, both pairs reach the quarter-final, a good sign for Atik Jauhari. Out of the two pair, Jo/Greysia should be the better one and they have an interesting match with the world no 6 pair of Saralee/Satinee today. Lita/Natalia is a new pairing with only 2 match experience so far and their first test will come today against the Japanese pair.

Hi... btw, do anyone knows why PBSI is not sending Anggun/Tetty and Maria Kristin?

Live from Hyderabad: Boonsak whips Roslin; Aditi troubles Wang
Dev S Sukumar/ badmintonmania.com
Hyderabad, 9 September 2005: Indian junior Aditi Mutatkar of India had world No.4 Wang Chen on the ropes in the second game of their pre-quarterfinal bout at the Asian Badminton Confederation championships, before falling to the experienced Hong Kong champion on Thursday.
The other top guns powered their way with ease. Ng Wei, Boonsak Ponsana, Lee Hyun Il and Sony Dwi Kuncoro booked their spots in the men's quarters, but the big surprise was local hope Chetan Anand's win over world No.17 Shoji Sato. Lee Hyun Il, one of the title favourites, scraped past Lee Tseun Seng of Malaysia in a battle of big-hitting left-handers, but Sony Dwi Kuncoro brushed aside Chen Chih Hao of Chinese Taipei, with the loss of just three points.
In the women's section, Kanako Yonekura, Wong Mew Choo, Adriyanti Firdarasari and Hirose Eriko joined Wang Chen in the quarters.
Brave show by Aditi:
Aditi, who trains at the Padukone Academy in Bangalore, wasn't expected to give much of a fight to her formidable opponent. The young Indian has just recovered from a right knee injury; besides, she is much smaller and far less experienced than Wang.
That showed in the first game, as Wang wiped her out 11-2. The sharply angled drops and jumped interceptions took Aditi by surprise, and she was frequently caught short.
But the young Indian refused to give up. Wang made a couple of errors early in the second, and Aditi pounced on the opportunity, fighting off 1-4 deficit to equal at 4. Aditi was finding her rhythm; her body smashes were troubling Wang, and her net game was more than an equal to her rival's.
Wang was getting caught in long rallies, and as Aditi's confidence increased, she matched the top seed shot for shot. A 6-4 lead for the Indian became 8-4, Wang netting three successive dribbles. A sharp half-smash gave Aditi a 9-4 lead, but Wang fought back to 8-9. Aditi broke serve with a smash that found the net cord, and earned game point with a return smash to Wang's serve.
All those watching the match were amazed. An Indian junior, playing her first senior international tournament, was troubling the top seed. Could she pull off the game?
As it turned out, however, Wang dug in deep and came up with the right answers. She cut down her errors, caught Aditi short again with her steep drops, and forced the Indian into error at the most crucial points. A 13-10 win in the second game ensured her entry into the quarterfinals.
Chetan Anand stuns Sato:
Wristy Chetan Anand, playing in front of his home crowd, earned the biggest win of his career by beating Shoji Sato of Japan.
Chetan turned on the charm from the beginning, keeping his fast rival guessing with his deceptive drops and half-smashes, and winning point after point with those steep overheads that kept finding the line.
Sato seemed to recover in the second game, with a 4-0 lead, but Chetan caught up at 6, and from there it was neck-and-neck. Sato's huge jump smashes and Chetan's crisp overheads lit up the hall, and it always going to be close. Serve changed ends a few times at 12-all, but Chetan suddenly found fortune -- Sato smashed a kill into the net, and then his own smash found the net cord and the shuttle dribbled over. Chetan earned match point after Sato misjudged a toss, and the Indian finally closed out the match to join compatriot Arvind Bhat in the quarters.
Boonsak overwhelms Roslin:
The most intriguing pre-match battle was Boonsak versus Roslin Hashim. Could the experienced Malaysian thwart the in-form Thai?
The match turned out anti-climactic, as world no. 14 Boonsak thrashed his rival in quick time. Roslin couldn't match the pace or read the wristy flicks and drives; the closest he came was 6-7 and 8-10 in the first. Boonsak sealed the game with a crosscourt smash.
The second game was a total rout. Roslin made error after error as Boonsak ran up a 7-1 lead, the most beautiful point being a sliced drop after faking a smash. The only breaks Roslin got were from Boonsak's errors, but the Thai allowed only a single point in the game.
Matches of the day:
Thailand's women doubles players Duanganong Aroonkesom and Kunchala Voravicitchaikul produced a fascinating battle against Matsuda Tomomi and Akao Aki, but the Japanese just about hung in to win at 12 and 12.
Duanganong was exceptional, covering the court with agility and attacking and defending with gusto. The Thai pair had the Japanese in trouble with their consistent hitting ability, and it was perhaps the advice of doubles legend Park Joo Bong that made the difference. Park is here as coach of the Japan team, and was closely observing all the matches featuring his players.
The other tight match of the day was Kuan Beng Hong's against Hsieh Yu Sheng of Taipei. Hong barely made it in a 9-15, 15-8, 15-7 brawl that was cheered lustily by the audience.
The most unusual match of the day was Yonekura's against Fransica Ratnasari. After a tight first game, which Ratnasari won 11-7, Yonekura whipped her 11-0 in the second. The third again was tightly fought, with the Japanese prevailing 11-7. Watching Yonekura by the sidelines was Wang Chen, who had come through a stiff test earlier. Wang and her coach were plotting her strategy against Yonekura.
Quarterfinals: MS: Ng Wei vs. Ayub Sairul Amar; Boonsak Ponsana vs. Sony Dwi Kuncoro; Arvind Bhat vs. Lee Hyun Il; Chetan Anand vs. Kuan Beng Hong.
WS: Wang Chen vs. Yu Hirayama; Yonekura vs. Cheng Shao Chieh; Adriyanti Firdasari vs. Mori Kaori; Wong Mew Chew vs Hirose Eriko.

Live from Hyd: Sony survives Boonsak challenge
Dev S Sukumar/ badmintonmania.com
Hyderabad, 9 September 2005:
Olympic bronze medallist Sony Dwi Kuncoro won his first big battle of the ABC championships after a bruising, 80 minute encounter with Thailand's Boonsak Ponsana in the quarterfinal on Friday. Others to reach the men's semifinals were Ng Wei, Lee Hyun Il and Kuan Beng Hong.
Women's world no.17 Cheng Shao Chieh created the biggest upset in the singles, beating Kanako Yonekura of Japan after a tense three-game struggle. There were no other upsets in the women's singles, with top seed Wang Chen, Kaori Mori and Eriko Hirose all booking their places in the last four.
Meanwhile, Indonesia had further cause to rejoice, with two of their women's doubles pairs making it to the semis. Jo Novita and Greysia Poli played wonderful badminton to upset world no.6 pair Saralee Thoungthongkam and Satinee Jankrajangwong in straight games. After that smart achievement, they sat by the court checking messages on their mobile phones, seeming almost oblivious to the magnitude of their achievement. "We formed this partnership just three tournaments ago, and our best showing was a semifinal place at the Indonesian Open," said Poli. Indonesian coach Atik Jauhari was delighted with his young team's performance.
Their compatriots Lita Nurlita and Natalia Poluakan came through after a tough three-game win over Matsuda Tomomi and Akao Aki of Japan.
Sony was erratic and brilliant by turns. Boonsak dominated the net early in the match, catching Sony time and again with his tight dribbles. The Indonesian countered Boonsak's languid style with a blistering attack, but some spectacular winners were negated by terrible errors. The serve changed ends several times at 11-all, until Boonsak went ahead when Sony smashed into the net.
The Thai earned game point after winning a net exchange, and clinched the game with a drive to a Sony smash.
The momentum completely swung the Indonesian's way after the break, thanks perhaps to coach Joko Suprianto. His smashes more accurate, his leaping interceptions breaking the elegant Thai's rhythm, Sony raced to a 7-3 lead with some big jump smashes that punched holes in Boonsak's backhand court, Boonsak could manage only one more point as the Indonesian easily took the second game at 15-4.
It was clear by the final game that both men were exhausted. Sony seemed to have recovered his touch at the net, and despite wayward smashes, went up 9-3. It looked like Boonsak had given up, but the Thai staged a comeback thanks to three consecutive errors by the Indonesian. Sony broke with a beautiful piece of deception -- he faked a smash and dropped it in front of the net, leaving Boonsak flat-footed in the middle.
Still, the Thai egged himself on, and levelled at 9. Sony edged ahead 11-9, serve changed ends a few times, and then the Indonesian got the critical point when Boonsak netted a return. Sony went ahead at 13-10, Boonsak narrowed the deficit by one point, but again the Indonesian found his big smashes on target and fittingly closed with a jump smash.
MS: Ng Wei bt Sairul Amar 15-10, 15-5; Sony Kuncoro bt Boonsak Ponsana 11-15, 15-4, 15-11; Lee Hyun Il bt Arvind Bhat 17-16, 15-5; Kuan Beng Hong bt Chetan Anand 10-15, 15-7, 15-2.
WS: Wang Chen bt Hirayama 11-7, 11-3; Cheng Shao Chieh bt Yonekura 1-11, 11-8, 11-6; Kaori Mori bt Adriyanti Firdasari 11-3, 7-11, 11-4; Eriko Hirose bt Wong Mew Choo 11-8, 11-6.
