Wow nice pics, looks like you covered almost everyone on court today. All I have to say is Go Monkie (Andy)! Never seen him look that serious.

One of the player, Dean Schoppe, wearing eyepatch?
What happened to his right eye?

..you should check out/search the 2008 U.S. Open thread, somewhere in here, to see more of Mr. Schoppe's pics..

@Jagdpanther: I think he's legally blind out of that eye, wears the patch so he can focus properly. Not certain the full story behind it, but I did have the chance to chat with him at another tournament he played in. Awesome guy, he had to basically completely relearn badminton, imagine lacking depth perception and still being competitive at ANY sport. That's passion for something if I've ever seen it.

wow chris, is that you who wrote it?

why I realized that most of the male players' shirts are very large and their shorts are very long also

chris i believe you missed tam nguyen writing his name on the back of his shirt with a marker. the sweat from his back made the ink bleed down the shirt. that made my day =)
