Malaysia Open 2007 SF in Pictures
I'm now at hcyong's house in KL watching the soccer match betwee Liverpool and Chelsea, which Liverpool is leading by 2 nil.
I thought I should spend some time posting some pics of the SF which we watched today. Of course, Malaysia is rejoicing over the WS SF victory by Wong Mew Choo over Eriko of Japan and the MD win by KKK and TBH over their Indonesian counterparts. So at least there will be Malaysian players who will feature in the finals of the WS and MD. To some extent, this compensates for the loss of reigning champion, Lee Chong Wei in the MS.

What has changed is that I've replaced my aperture which was faulty and at the same time had my camera serviced. And during the MO, I sat at a higher position .

The MD final match between KKK/TBH and Tony/Candra was played last yesterday but had most of us spell-bound. It even eclipsed the MS match betwee Peter Gade and Bao CL. The younger pair's speed was too much for the veteran Indonesians to handle.
In the WD, Indonesia's Marissa and Polii played above themselves and gave the Chinese, Gao Ling and Huang Shi a fright in the first game before succumbing to their experience in the last two games. But M and P have already made an impact and will certainly be a force to reckon with in future.

9-21. Quite ulike them, especially to this new Chinese partnership. However, Zheng does carry a big smash and Gao sets up well for him.
In the Final, against England's pair of Emms/Robertson, Zheng's smash was nullified by Robertson's equally devastating power. The match went into a rubber and had the Chinese not wake up in the third game, it could have been victory to England. Gao Ling redeemed herself from a lack luster secome game performance and was hurting the English with her intelligent net play and cross court placings in the final game. It let Zheng employ his favourite smash to a better advantage.

BTW, the tenth picture shows Terry, our BC member who appears a good replacement for his good friend, ants, looking pretty smart as one of the VIPs with the Malaysian players. Terry was rather kind to pick us up at a petrol station and bring us, including BFer hcyong, to the hotel which he helped book for me and my other Singapore friend.
Hcyong is Malaysian and was particularly helpful in accompanying us during the three days at KLBA and eating out together. On the finals day, he drove us, including his younger brother and a friend from Kuantan, to the stadium and later to Pudu Jaya for our bus back to Singapore. He couldn't join us as he had arranged a night train back to Singapore to report for work the next day. We also enjoyed our short visit to his house to watch the Liverpool versus Chelsea soccer match.
Earlier, on quarter findals day, we also met kokcheng and his Alor Star buddies, including the fathers of Tan Boon Heong and Kenn Lim.
