    Arrow Singapore Badminton Open 2008: Day 4, Friday June 13th

    .
    Greetings,

    And so we have moved onto Day 4 ... Black Friday 13th (for those believers ).

    Over the last 3 days, upsets have been monitored by some of our BC members, namely: eaglehelang, Misty100, robin7, jasonmarc, etc ...

    No.1 : Thailand's Songphon/Kunchala defeated Indonesia's Limpele/Marissa (3rd seed)
    No.2 : Taiwan's Fang/Cheng defeated Denmark's Thomas/Kamilla (7th seed)
    No.3 : Singapore's Gu Juan defeated Hong Kong's Yip PY (6th seed)
    No.4 : Thailand's Songphon/Tesana defeated Denmark's Lars/Jonas (4th seed)
    No.5 : India's Arvind Bhat defeated Poland's Wacha (5th seed)
    No.6 : Korea's Ha/Kim defeated Malaysia's WPT/CEH (7th seed)
    No 7 : Malaysia's KBH defeated Thailand's Boonsak (8th seed).
    No 8 : Malaysia's CCM/CCE defeated Indonesia's Luluk/Alvent (5th seed)
    No 9 : Taiwan's Tsai/Chen defeated Japan'sSakamoto/Ikeda (7th seed)
    No 10 : Singapore's Xing Aiying defeated England's Tracey Hallem (7th seed)
    No.11 : Malaysia's TBS/KCK defeated Japan's Ohtsuka/Masuda (8th seed)
    No.12 :
    Vietnam's Nguyen defeated China's Chen Yu (7th seed)
    No.13 :
    Malaysia's Tan Bin Shen/Khoo Chung Kiat defeated Japan's Ohtsuka/Masuda (8th seed)

    Round 3 will be played on DAY 4, Friday 13-Jun-2008.

    For the Mens Doubles, we have the following matches:

    (1) Hung Ling CHEN/Chia Hsin TSAI (TPE) vs Gun Woo CHO/Yeon Seong YOO (KOR)
    (2) Mohd Razif ABDUL LATIF/Wee Kiong TAN (MAS) vs Zhendong GUO/Zhongbo XIE (CHN)
    (3) Chung Chiat KHOO/Bin Shen TAN (MAS) vs Mohd Zakry ABDUL LATIF vs Mohd Fairuzizuan MOHD TAZARI (MAS)
    (4) Teik Chai GAN/ Woon Fui LIN (MAS) vs Chong Ming CHAN/Choon Eng CHEW (MAS)

    Again, I will attempt to make my predictions (highlighted) to see how many (out of the 4) I could score.

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    Chris, there were 2 more upsets :
    No 12 : WS, Indonesia’s Firdasari defeated France’s Pi Hongyan (1st seed)
    No 13 : MS, Vietnam's Nguyen defeated China's Chen Yu (7th seed)

    Round 1 = 6 upsets, Round 2 = 7 upsets. Guo/Xie the only seeded MD pair left. The seeded pairs in XD remain strong.

    eaglehelang ... It's good that you've corrected the list.

    With so many upsets, I have lost count.

    n I hope INA will have four representatives in semis, except for MD. It's weird since we used to depend on MD to grab at least 1 title in everytourney. N now, the best chance to enter to semifinal is in WS.

    Firdasari plays Saina N. The win against Yao Jie should give her confidence going into this match. One to watch out for tomorrow.

    avataar ... Yes, I would predict that Saina could beat Firdasari in Day 4 (Quarter Finals).

    I am thinking that Firdasari is tired now... after her gallant win over Hongyan yesterday.

    hopefully firda can play as well as yesterday.. But i do believe she can.. Beating no 1 seeds, nothing is imposible further.. Bet that INA get the winning in WD 4 today.. Last match vita/lilyana got the games just in 14 minutes!!! It must be recorded as the fastest match ever..

    Default 3-GAMERS making a third

    Day 3 saw the number of rubber games stretching to 14 out of 39 matches, a good one-third or 36%!

    The last remaining match of the evening, which started past 9 pm, caught the full attention of the sparse die-hard fans. It was the MD between Malaysia's veterans, Chan Chong Ming and Chew Choon Eng and the younger Indonesian pair of Alvent and Luluk, seeded 5.

    The Indonesians took the first game convincely 17-21. But the Malaysians returned the compliments in the second by taking it 21-18.

    The thriller had to come in the third and decisive match and the motley but patient crowd were rewarded with an outstanding performance by both teams. A deuce was the fairest outcome but only one team could win.

    And it took almost an hour for the Malaysians to confirm their hard fought victory. They almost could not make it as Luluk was fiery in his continuous attacks on Chan who miraculously returned every smash thrown at him until Luluk imploded himself. This thrilled the crowd no end! That vital point gave Chan and Chong a thin margin of 23-21 and a chance to face compatriots, Gan Teik Chai and Lin Woon Fui in today's QF.

    Who would you choose to win? The outcome matters to the players, but Malaysia will certainly have one more assured MD place in the SF tomorrow, the other certainty will be decided between Zakry and Tazari against Khoo Chung Chiat and Tan Bin Shen. Good Luck!

    Dear Loh,

    I think you must have watched too many matches till you mixed them all up!

    The last match was between Guo Zhendong / Xie Zhongbo and Muhammad Ahsan / Bona Septano.

    You're absolutely right! My eyes were blurry and my internal clock went haywire! And that match was breath taking! All these combined made it worse than a Russian Molotov cocktail!
