    Wink

    I agree with the prediction except for:
    MS - Eric Go overHoward Bach
    WD - Subandhi/Chen over Ng/Zhou

    Also, I would like to see an upset in WD - DePaw/Todd over Peng/Lee - it a stretch but could happen.

    There is also a possibility of upset in MS: Andrew Todd over Zi Wei Qin
    And in XD: Subandhi/Shu could potentialy beat Zhou/Shear

    It will be an interesting day...

    Cool Good & entertaining matches..

    ..Saw the Semifinals & consolation rounds of the U.S. Nationals..folks, let me tell you this, there are a lot of young players playing and some of them are getting better & better...I didn't go to see all the matches(only went in late afternoon), but the future is definitely there..

    Saw a very entertaining match between P. Mazur and B. Malaythong, which ended in a bit of an upset. Kazur played very well, stable/consistent & didn't make a lot of unforced errors. Bob seemed a bit tired, making quite a few unforced erros, esp. while playing in 3 different matches.

    Saw probably the most entertaining match of the day, however it was @ the end, of a XD consolation match. The match went to rubber sets, but it pitted a pair of very young players(OCBC, Thuy HOANG & Marvin LIN) versus a pair of veteran pair( Joy KITZMILLER & Ryan MIGLIN which i would say in their 30s).

    Didn't take much pics, but here are a few; guess who's in the 1st pic & too bad he's not playing. However, i did record(my SURPRISE which i mentioned earlier in this thread) some matches for y'all to enjoy. Give me a bit of time to organize and upload them for you guys to enjoy.. In the meantime, enjoy these:

















    Tomorrow's Finals lineup should be fun and entertaining. And hopefully i can get to record all of them for y'all to enjoy.

    Btw, kwun, i believe i saw Mr. Wayne Lum with his "weapon", the 1D MK2 or 1D MK3, complete with his tele-lens...

    Default ^^No problem..and looking ahead..^^

    ..and btw, for tomorrow's Finals, i'll do my best to capture all the pics(as well as record the matches) and share them with you guys ...Oh, looking @ the 5th and 6th pics, you'll notice the pair on the left, those guys indeed lived up to their #2 seed & will be playing against Bob M. and Howard B. in tomorrow's MD Finals..I recall that pair played quite well, but we'll see in tomorrow's Final against the reigning U.S. National MD Champs...
    Speaking also of Mr. Piotr Mazur(MS), he also lived up to his #2 seed, as i've never seen him play before..But after seeing him in action tonight, tomorrow's MS Final against Howard B. should be quite interesting..

    *Btw, for LazyBuddy, cross your fingers i(or anyone else) can get pics of the Yeh twins, tomorrow..I saw them coming in late, dressed with some nice attires, but didn't get a chance to take their pics..

    If Lee Joo Hyun was an ex-Korean national team player as Viper95 said earlier, then Eva Lee and Lili Zhou should be the underdog instead.

    Default Final Predictions

    I was stunned and surprised with the upsets, so....
    let me be the first today to make the final outcome predictions:

    XD - Eva Lee/Howard Bach bt Mangkalakiri/Malaythong
    MS - Howard Bach bt Poitr Mazur
    WS - Lili Zhou bt Joo Hyun Lee
    MD - Bob Malaythong/Howard Bach bt Nguy/Gunatelaka
    WD - Grace Peng/Joo Hyun Lee bt Eva Lee/Malangkakiri

    Whoa... I just predicted that Howard Bach would be a tripple crown winner in this tournament!

    Default Finals day recap & pics..

    ...well, as expected, all the projected winners came out on top..The XD match was really over in no more than 20 min., i believe..So was the MD match, which only took abt 17-18 min. to end..Personally, the most entertaining match was the MS and the WD..Unfortunately all matches only went 2 sets..Really, like westwood_13 said, the playing level of all the winners is just plain indicative of how big a "gap" there is/are with the others...And yes, Mr. Bach is the triple-crown winner..

    Anyways, here are a few more pics of the Finals day (these are pics of the consolation matches. And were taken when i had some break time, in between & after the Finals matches. As the matches followed each other one after another)..Noticed in one of them, there's Piotr Mazur sitting along his coach?? Sorry, didn't take any pics of the Finalists because i was busy with recording the matches. But here are some pics of the future U.S. Nationals winners..Oh, and wait til you guys see what i have in store for our own LazyBuddy













































    *Sorry, I'm still working on the recorded matches and still need to upload them. So hope for those waiting, y'all can hang on & be patient..

    Default And here are the pics for our own...

    ..LazyBuddy, of the Yeh twins ...ah, finally got some decent/clear enough pics of them, as i was lucky enough to sit back & see them play one of the last matches of the day(Consolation match), after all the matches had ended. Btw, anyone wanna try guessing who's wearing the CHN's team Uber Cup jersey..

    Kudos to the Alaskan for making it to the MS final! I heard he has like 2 people to train with.

    Default Alright, finally, here are the videos...

    ..phew ..for those waiting for these(esp. those who weren't able to watch the matches), just want to say thanks for bearing out and being patient; sorry for having the videos come out quite late...Anyways, here are the raw, unedited & uncensored videos for your watching and listening pleasures (pardon me if y'all will hear some unexpected, unnecessary noises in the background)..The quality isn't the greatest or clearest(640X480 with either a 4 Mbps or 5 Mbps stream), don't know why it does that on Google, but hope y'all don't mind..
    Some other ramblings:
    * The post-processing which took the most time was the uploading process. Originally I had to download them in their raw .avi format, which took a lot of storage space, and then compressed/encoded them into an MPEG2 format using the HT MPEG Encoder 7.0 software/program. Audio sync-ing was also issue, but with the program, the end results turn out to be pretty good..
    Just that the uploading part was, i can say........painful and looong..
    ** Note,for those interested in the MPEG file(s), let me know & i can upload them to a storage website for you guys to download..ENJOY!!
