The Doubles pairs weren't as busy as the Singles players..
...as there were also quite a bit of last minute withdrawals. Plus the Singles players were doing double duty playing both Singles and Doubles events...
Here are some pics...(i'm mixing all the Doubles actions)..
Btw, nothing is worst than a feeling for being in the spotlight, in these 2 photos, directly below....to feel embarrassed and being "warned" by the Tournament Referee, to say the least...for not having tournament ready shirts...(their match was delayed a few minutes, actually, but they finally finished it)
Oh look, is that Tony Gunawan??.....Look closely........

And here are the last few..
...i have some more, but they're still being uploaded to a Slide website, for easier viewing..hope they'll be plenty for the time being..
I've also recorded (will do so for the rest of the week) some matches, but i probably won't be able to provide them to you guys. Sorry for the lack of expediency...

Hey, good job Chris. From your observations, who do you consider the fave for the MS? So difficult with so many unknown names.

Nice photos... but it would be good if take the faces of the players instead of their names on the shirts.

Noticed a few players wearing prescription glasses too. Also saw a couple of pics of an older gentleman wearing an eyepatch!

to madbad: as to what happened in the LHL's & Thomsen's match, you can see the racket pic in the Misc. Pictures thread. Try to guess what happened.
As for the fave in MS, i'll share with is in the next/upcoming post.
to ants: yes, you're correct. I should've taken their faces as well. But, i assume you're referring to the 2 players with no names of their shirts, already took a picture of them (haven't been able to upload them)..
to birdie68: yep, it's quite embarrassing. Unless someone had stolen their shirts, there's no excuse for them not to know this type of tourneys regulations. But, it was a different story today, though.
to papa-kwun-razzi: yes, i used all fast prime lenses (ranging from 15mm to 200mm). Plus an 1.4x extender lens. No zoom lenses this time.
But my right hand is a bit sore from holding those equipments for nearly 12 hrs.
But of course, i have to give a big THANKS to all the photo-gurus for their unending guidance.
