    Anyway, Team Indonesia's performance so far is not so bad. 3 quarter-finalists guaranteed from the second-team. Can they match the 3 final appearances achieved last year? I think Devin/Vita really has an excellent chance to be the champion here. They only have to deal with Tony/Cheng

    Maybe , I say MAYBE, it was because of Cheng's father.
    It's just a gossip, so you don't need to believe it

    Here's partial translation:

    Even though the shuttlecocks are not round, but the badminton competition is tough and you don't
    know the result until the very last shot. There is one big upset in this morning's mixed matches,
    Taiwan's Cheng Wen-Hsing and Indonesian's Tony Gunawon teamed up together to win in 3 games
    (15-10, 10-15, 15-8) against the number 1 seeded team to go into quarter-final.

    At this year's World Championship in LA, US Badminton Association asked Cheng Wen-Hsing to see if she'll
    be interested in pairing up with Tony if Tony plays in Chinese Taipei Open. After Wen-Hsing
    went back to Taiwan and got OK from the company she plays for, Wen-Hsing and Tony got to play together.
    Even though the first time they practiced together was Tuesday (15th) and played the first match
    yesterday, they defeated Korea's number on seeded players Lee/Lee unexpectedly. It's not clear
    if they'll get to play together as mixed pair long term wise, since they will not get to practice together often.

    Tony is very famous in men's doubles, he won the 2000 Olympic with Chandra and this year's world championship
    with Howard, Wen-Hsing was worry about being the weak link in the beginning and she would just try her best.
    She's "very happy" that she's able to win the match today.

    Any explanation as to why "US Badminton Association asked Cheng Wen-Hsing to see if she'll be interested in pairing up with Tony if Tony plays in Chinese Taipei Open" ?????

    Quite surprising isn't it?

    Well, Cheng Wen-Hsing is a doubles expert. Unlike her partner, Chien Yu-Chin, she does not have a regular mixed partner (correct me if I am wrong). Therefore, if Tony/Halim were to compete in the Chinese Taipei Open, I guess, its nothing wrong for the US Badminton Association to solicit Cheng as a possible mixed partner for either Tony or Halim.

    I believe they were in the mixed doubles more for the fun of it initially. They did not expect to beat Lee/Lee (who is currently at the top of their game). Of course, the upset will fuel their incentive in winning the title, given that their only strong oppositions will be the Indonesian pairing of Devin/Vita or the Taiwanese pairing of Tsai/Chien.

    Wow it is amazing how Tony can win a mixed game against one of the strongest mixed pair in the world with a partner whom he hadn't play with. I wouldn't be too surprised if they win this tournament together.

    That Tony is a genius. First doubles then mixed and what's next? Singles?

    I believe Cheng's regular mixed partner (or used to be) is Tsai Chia-Hsin who's
    playing with Chien Yu-Chin in the tournament. If I remember correctly,
    Cheng/Tsai did beat Zhang/Gao once in one of the tournament (2 years ago ?)
    and they lost to Lee/Lee in this year's World Championship.

    Cheng's partner Chien is playing all 3 events (singles, doubles, mixed) and
    she didn't know who signed up the singles event for her in the beginning.
    It seems that her coach wanted her to use singles to warm up and get familiar
    with the venue. So far, she won all her matches in all events including
    beating No 5 seeded Korea's Hwang Hye Youn.

    Thanks for the correction. I have checked up the ranking tables and indeed, Cheng's partner is Tsai. They are ranked no 32 in the world (not bad).

    Yes and no. Yes, Tony is a genius on the court but full-time singles is too hard core.

    Run Tony, run!

    Question

    Are Tony and Cheng representing Taiwan or USA or Indonesia? I could see from the pic that Tony was wearing a USA shirt while Cheng was wearing a Chinese Taiper shirt and after the match they were sitting with team indonesia!
