here's a picture.
This Swiss open is pretty good, at least in providing prompt information and video streaming to the Internet. Thank them for great job. I really enjoy watching those online real time videos.

i only thing i don't like about the swiss open is, the dark red mat. It hurts my eyes

Hope it's nothing series. LD is probably pushing himself quite a bit from the continuous play.

From www.badzine.info... Even the German's doctor examine Lin Dan's injury and claimed that it is valid and not a fake injury like some people would say.
I was hoping that Gade would claim his second super-series title, since LD is now out of this tournament... but too bad Peter lost to Chen Jin. Peter has been around long enough for the Chinese to basically know his game so well.

Apparently he got a hematoma (bruise) from playing badminton. Either he had a bad dive or he pushed himself so hard his muslces started to bleed!

Sorry to hear about Lin Dan, happy for Simon, must have been an exciting first set. But Lin Dan has just been playing so many tournaments non-stop. He was bound to get an injury of some sort eventually. Hope he recovers quickly .

waist injury ,LIN said.

I hope LD will soon recover.
Here's hoping he's able to play Singapore super series.
Maybe he would not join in Yonex-Sunrise Asian Continental Championships .

Yea, I hope he recovers in time for other Super Series tournaments, especially the 2007 World Championships in Kuala Lumpur. With his presence the tournament is a more competitive.
I used to be able to say that about Chen Hong but he recently retired from the professional world of badminton.
Taufik is not motivated to try or even enter at all in the past couple of tournaments.
Lee Chong Wei seems to be at a low point of his career which explains why he hasn't performed since the 2006 Hong Kong/Macau Open.
Peter Gade is getting too old to be performing at his peak all the time. (This is why I hope he doesn't win the next few tournaments to save his strength & peak at the World Championships this year.)

In badminton, it can me excessive interms of impact. In other words, What goes up must comes down. It just shows that its not easy to stay on top. Looks like there'll be a change of champions soon, eg like the MD, Mix, etc...
Importantly, the game must be entertaining with dramas like Taufik or epl.
rgds Else no kick.

I hope he will be better soon and think he didn't fake.
That was an accident, nobody wanted it.
But I'm glad that Simon won this match.
Hope he will be lucky tomorrow when he meets Chen Jin.

yes, it would be a good test for chen jin to battle an upcoming INA players, to see how ready CJ for the 08 OG.
To be on top, one has to fight off many oppositions.
