    Does anyone know when the R2 schedule was set? It seems uncharacteristic of the AE committee to overlook such a detail as notifying a player

    I remember looking at the tournament software page after all the R1 matches had been played(past 10pm). And there isn't anything on the R2 schedule. So, I won't be too far off by saying that the R2 schedule was set on that day itself. So, it you were to notify someone who plays at 10am on that day itself, that's going to be a challenge.

    The AE committee is very unorganized this year. Only update the tournament software page a day before the qualifying matches at around 11pm. You can rest assure that this doesn't happen in a football match.

    in the early rounds they can only do the schedule after all the matches finished for the day. to decide which matches to be on the show/TV court, also for some players play in 2 events to give them enough time between matches

    Chong Wei beats Chunlai to check into quarters

    PETALING JAYA: Defending champion Lee Chong Wei checked into the quarter-finals of the All-England badminton championships but the title continued to remain elusive for Indonesian old-timer Taufik Hidayat after his challenge came to an abrupt end in Birmingham.

    Yesterday, Chong Wei underlined his superiority over Bao Chunlai of China with a 21-16, 21-16 win in a 42-minute second round match.

    The win extended Chong Wei’s proud record of having won every match against the former World Championships runner-up since 2007.

    Up next for Chong Wei will be the winner of the match between Lee Hyun-il of South Korea and Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand.

    A day earlier, the Malaysian blew away France’s Brice Leverdez 21-9, 21-11 in just 24 minutes.

    Coach Tey Seu Bock was happy with Chong Wei’s cool and composed manner in packing off the lanky Chunlai yesterday.

    “Chong Wei was mentally prepared to face Bao and played the right tactical game. He never gave Bao any room or opportunity to retaliate
    ,” said Seu Bock in a telephone interview.

    “Bao was in good condition but he was at a loss and did not know how to play against a focused Chong Wei. We hope that our sole Malaysian singles player will keep up his momentum.”

    Badminton/All England Championships: Lin Dan, Chong Wei through to quarters

    KUALA LUMPUR: Olympic champion Lin Dan and World No 1 Lee Chong Wei booked their places in the quarter-finals in comprehensive manners, but world champion Chen Jin of China was sent packing from the All England at National Indoor Arena (NIA) in Birmingham yesterday.

    Lin Dan, who had criticise the poor lighting in NIA on Wednesday, secured a 21-11, 21-17 win over Dionisius Hayom Rumbaka of Indonesia in the second round.

    He will play Nguyen Tien Minh of Vietnam, who beat another China shuttler Du Pengyu 21-18, 21-15, in the last eight later tonight.

    Chong Wei, who almost missed his second round match against Bao Chunlai due to a scheduling error by the organisers, was calm enough to overcome his old China foe 21-16, 21-16 to claim a spot in the last eight.

    He will be involved in a tussle against Thailand's Boonsak Ponsana, who eliminated Lee Hyun Il of South Korea 22-20, 21-12, today.

    However, Chen Jin was not fortunate as Chen Jin was brought downto earth by Germany's Marc Zwiebler with a 21-18, 22-20 win.

    "I didn't expect to lose," said Chen Jin.

    "But I was not in good form today. I don't know what happened. I played really bad especially with my overhead shots
    ."

    Meanwhile, ginatkiller Kazushi Yamada, who toppled former Olympic champion Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia in the first round, also continued his impressive run with a 21-15, 19-21, 21-16 victory against China's Wang Zhengming.

    His reward is a quarter-final clash againts Zwiebler and the winner of the match looking forward to meeting Lin Dan in a likely semi-final match-up tomorrow.

    Danish veteran Peter Gade Christensen, 35, was also in fine form as he put last year's runner-up Kenichi Tago out with a 21-9, 22-20 to book a quarter-final berth against Chen Long of China.

    Chen Long received a walkover from Thailand's Tanongsak Seansomboonsuk in the second round.

    Narrow escape for Chong Wei

    LEE Chong Wei was almost knocked out of the All England due to an error in the tournament schedule but the defending champion managed to arrive at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham on time to claim a spot in the quarter-finals yesterday.

    Chong Wei, who only found out that he would be facing Bao Chunlai of China in the first match at 10am (UK time) despite the organisers giving a different schedule on Wednesday night, did well to beat his rival 21-16, 21-16 in 42 minutes.

    BA of Malaysia (BAM) general manager Kenny Goh, in a telephone interview from Birmingham, said the tournament secretariat's printed schedule had stated that Chong Wei was to play the fifth match of the day but the Malaysian camp's foresight to check the official website early last morning saved the shuttler's campaign.

    The organisers were said to have tried to reach Chong Wei at the hotel just an hour before the match but the shuttler was already on his way after knowing the changes early.

    "We were given the printed schedule by the tournament secretariat on Wednesday night and it stated that Chong Wei would be playing the fifth match with the second round beginning at 10am. Luckily, we checked the tournament schedule again on the tournament website," said Kenny.

    "The website stated Chong Wei would be playing the first match and we subsequently checked with Chua Soo Hock who is the tournament referee and he confirmed the change.

    "Chong Wei left in time for the match and fortunately, his performance against Chunlai was not affected. It would have been a disaster if he had stuck to the original schedule that was given to us.

    "Although the change in schedule was published on the website, I'm surprised that we were not notified although we were supposed to play the first match."

    The episode had some effect on Chong Wei who played with caution but he remained calm to snatch a comfortable victory in the end.

    A visibly upset Chong Wei didn't attend the official press conference held later and rushed off after the match. The organisers were in no position to complain as their grave error almost led to Chong Wei being shown the All England door.

    Chong Wei is expected to meet either Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand or South Korean Lee Hyun Il, who were involved in a late second round encounter last night, in the quarter-final clash today.

    That's what Berita Harian says, using the word 'sabotaj', trying to poke fire. Kenny Goh said no sabotage

    They should not change the decision suddenly without the player's knowing.
    What if LCW slept till noon? Since mas and uk time is 8/9 hours difference.. What a poor organization.

    LCW looks pretty comfortable with the new VT80. His cross-court smashes are as good if not better than before.
