    Both Lee and Wong chalked up impressive performances. If they continue to play up to mark, it should be an all Malaysian final for MS. However, Anders and Dicky both played remarkably well, especially Dicky, and they should not be underestimated.
    Chan/Chew is a tremendous let down...again.

    Default Impression of Thursday

    Yesterday i visited the Dutch open, watched matches from 10am till 10pm.
    I know, i should have watched all games till 1.30 am or so, but i was tired and had to drive back 130 km

    I watched a lot of matches, here is an impression on oly a few of them (otherwise i am all day busy writing)

    As mentioned, Lee TS looking not too fit.
    As in third round, also in second round Lee TS didn't look like as if he was amused playing against Sergio Llopis. In the first game, Llopis took a 6-2 advance and Lee had a hard time to make thing turn his way.

    Lee Hyun II against Yong Hock Kin... THAT was a long match. Most of the rallies lasted longer than 20 hits. Relax play of both players, with sometimes a burst of energie with fast smashes, followed by good defence from the other and ….continue the rally... awesome to see.
    Suddenly in second set, after another long rally, Yong Hock thought a clear from Lee Hyun would go wide... but... it landed ? well, couldn't see from my position, but the linesman called it inside and Yong was not amused.. he yelled, talked to the umpire, but after continue of play, Lee serverd in the net ! Looking at his face i think Lee was not very happy with that, but Yong considered this as a sportive gesture from Lee and... he approached him to shake hands ! Don't know if this is the 'help' of linesman Kwun is talking about, because I believe there was another incident. At that moment, my eye was on another court.
    After his victory, Yong not only did shake hands with the 2 umpires, but also with that one linesman!

    Same round in MS, Taufik Hidayat Akbar, who got himself through qualification AND first round of the main tournament, played a nice match against Anupap Thiraratsakul from Thailand. Taufik showed nice defence from all the attacks from his Thai opponent, but often ending in a jump on the ground for an ultimate safe. The umpire seemed not very happy that the sweeper guy had to wipe the sweat of the court every two rallies.
    Taufik lost, but we probably see a lot more in the future of this young promising player.

    I also enjoyed the matches of the Indian Abhinn Shyam Gupta. First he won from Nabil Lasmari, later that day he played against Yong Hock Kin. Well, that match was almost like the previous match of Yong : Very long rallies, rallies, rallies. At a score of 5-5, the other MS matches were in the middle of second set already. Gupta showed very consistent play, almost no errors.

    MXD : Chris Bruil and Lotte Jonathans, seeded second, almost got out the tournament in their first match against Thomas Laybour and Lene Mork. In third set, 10-8 behind, they survived 2 match points !
    Their second MXD was also exciting against Dennis Lens and Johanna Persson (11-8, 11-9)

    Also a nice game with Dutch players was Tijs Creemers and Lonneke Janssen beating Jose Antonio Crespo and Dolores Marco.
    Their next match was against …yes…Jonas Rasmussen and Rikke Olsen.
    Nice to be able to see two matches of Jonas yesterday ! Good fast play from Jonas and Rikke, never been in danger, like in their first match in the morning, that one was over very quick.
    And of course Eva Krab and Joeli Residay beating their Dutch colleagues Donovan Cuntapay and Maartje Verheul. Second mixed doubles match from Eva and Joeli was tough and ended in a loss against the Thai couple Khunakorn Sudhisodhi and Saralee Thungthongkam. But from the smile on your face after the match Eva, I think you enjoyed the match. I enjoyed watching.

    Default JR/Rikke vs Kim DM/Lee KW

    A mouth watering match in prospect.
    This should really be the final.

    I favour JR and Rikke to pull out the win.

    I beg to differ Cheung.

    I think Kim DM / Lee KM will prevail.

    And as usual, Chew/Chan are disappointing again. Nothing really surprising though.

    I wonder why Korean's Lee/Yoo aren't taking part in this tournament....

    Aww, got it wrong. Kim /Lee went through. I thought Rikke would have the edge on net play and dominating that area over Lee. Hence the thinking the Danes would have it.

    And who are these Koreans who've knocked out two seeded pairs in the men's doubles? Perhaps the future Korean doubles.

    Wong Choong Hann finally ended his 5 year title drought beating compatriot Lee Tsuen Seng convincingly.

    Both players will likely cross-sword again next week in the 3rd round of Danish Open.

    Congratulations to Wong CH, a lot of players would have given up - getting to six major finals and holding the world number 1 status for few times without winning anything for 4 years is a lot to go through. I hope he has found some new purpose now for the remaining half of his badminton career.

    Thanx for all your support guys!

    I really had a good time at the tournament..
    Wednesday I lost my doubles in the qualification.. I dont want to talk about that match anymore.. were were behind 9-5 in the tird, came back to 10-9..had a matchpoint and still didn't win the match.. grrrrrrrrr..

    My mixed was better.. we got in the headtournament.. but against our training-buddys.. I was very nervous to play against them because I really wanted to win.. We did but not after using 6 matchpoints to finish it...:S

    The next match against the Thai-couple I was just a bit tense because I wanted to play better than the previous match but I could play freely because we had nothing to lose... We played quite a good match but we have to become physicly stronger and a bit more experienced to be a real treat to couples like that..

    And indeed there was a smile on my face after the match!!! I played a good game!

    Great job, Eva!

    Did noticed that you weren't able to get through qualifications in the doubles but was happy that you did in the mixed.

    Winex Holland and Taiwan was very happy with Mia's retention of her title (this is three years in a row) and also with her progress in the doubles.

    Will you be playing in the Danish Open?

    No I won't be playing the Danish... I would have like to.., but I haven't been selected.. And maybe a 5*grandprix is a bit too tough for me.. I will be playing the German next week so I hope I will play there better than in Eindhoven..
    I might be because I had to drive 2 hours every time to get there and get home - as I am not a member of the Olympic team- and thats not that good for your game.. It was kinda strange, I played on wednesday and thursday and on friday I had to do a presentation at school..It's like two different worlds..

    2 hours driving tires anybody out.
    That's really funny about two different worlds. But it stops you from stagnating.
    Do you think you were trying too hard since it was your 'home' tournament?

    All the best for the German Open.
