    Default 23.08.10 Ouseph wins thriller and Robertson & Clark beat 2005 champions on day one in

    RAJIV OUSEPH got England’s Yonex BWF World Championships bid off to a winning start in Paris today when he snatched a thrilling men’s singles first round clash with Dutch No. 2 Eric Pang.
    And towards the end of the evening session on day one Nathan Robertson and Anthony Clark beat 2005 world champions Howard Bach and Tony Gunawan to reach the men's doubles second round.
    Ouseph, the three-times English National champion from Hounslow in Middlesex, had to work for his win, needing four match points before coming through against the world No 36 21-19 15-21 23-21 in 49 minutes.
    The world No 17 got off to a slow start and trailed 18-11 in the opening game before pulling back to 19-19 and going on to take the opener at his first opportunity. But Pang was always ahead in the second and squared the match 21-15.
    In the decider Ouseph trailed 14-11 but the European bronze medallist and US Open champion turned the tide to stand at match point with the score 20-18. But Pang recovered and Ouseph failed to convert a third match point at 21-20 before finally holding his nerve to win 23-21.
    That earned him a place in the last 32 and a contest against 11th seed Jan O Jorgensen, the Dane who beat him in the Yonex European Championships semi-finals in Manchester in April. Jogensen outplayed Austria’s Michael Lahnsteiner in straight games in the evening session.
    Head coach Andy Wood said: “It was great to get the team off to a flying start. Rajiv competed really well when it really mattered at the end of the first and third games.

    Default 23.08.10 Yonex named title sponsor for the 2011 BWF World Championships at Wembley

    Name:  image-8977-220-auto-both-both-85-5.jpg

    BADMINTON England today confirmed long-time commercial partners Yonex Company Ltd as the title sponsor for the 2011 BWF World Championships.
    It will be the third time England has hosted the World Championships but the first time the Championships have been staged in London.
    Birmingham’s National Indoor Arena staged the 1993 and 2003 World Championships and the NIA is also the home of the Yonex All England Championships, the world’s oldest Open badminton tournament.
    The All England was always regarded as the unofficial world championships until the inaugural World Championships was introduced in 1977 and in 2011 it will be one of five new Premier events in the 2011 BWF Super Series.
    The announcement of Yonex as the title sponsor for the 2011 BWF World Championships comes on the opening day of this year’s 18th BWF World Championships in Paris, where the world’s No 1 badminton brand is also the title sponsor.
    The World Championships will come to London for the first time from August 8-14, 2011 and it marks the return of world-class badminton to the capital for the first time since 1993 when the Yonex All England Championships was staged at Wembley Arena for the last time before moving to its present home in Birmingham.
    Along with Yonex as title sponsors, BADMINTON England are also pleased to confirm the Badminton World Federation, UK Sport, Visit London and Brent Council as official World Championships partners.
    BADMINTON England’s Chief Executive Adrian Christy said today: “Yonex have sponsored the All England Championships for the last 27 years and we are delighted that they now feel able to sponsor the BWF World Championships at Wembley Arena as well.
    “The 2011 World Championships will take on special significance because Wembley Arena will also be the venue for the badminton tournament at the Olympic Games so it will give badminton fans a taste of what’s to come at London 2012.

    Default World Badminton Championships 2010: Rajiv Ouseph to face world No 1 Lee Chong Wei

    England's Rajiv Ouseph heads for unchartered waters after triumphing at his first world championships in the biggest match of his career.

    Ouseph avenged his European Championships semi-final defeat by Jan O Jorgensen in Manchester in April by beating him to reach the third round in Paris on Wednesday.

    His 34-minute victory brought a dubious reward as he must now face world No 1 and top seed Lee Chong Wei, the All England champion, in the third round on Thursday.



    The three-times English national champion not only won but did so impressively.
    He dominated the opening game with strong smashes and clever net play to take it 21-12 and then showed a lot of nerve after seeing Jorgensen recover to 19-19 after trailing 17-14 and 19-16 in the second.
    In the end Ouseph needed four match points before getting the better of the European runner-up and 11th seed 25-23, having saved a game point at 23-22 down.
    Ouseph said: “This made up for the Europeans. I think I played better and perhaps he didn’t play quite as well. The win means a lot because this is my first World Championships.”
    Of the third-round clash with Lee, US Open champion Ouseph said: “He wants to win the World Championships so I am definitely going to be the underdog. But I’ll go out to enjoy it. Jan has beaten him before so I don’t see why I can’t.”
    Carl Baxter was also trying to join Ouseph in the third round but he went out against ninth seed Boonsak Ponsana.
    The Thailand player won 21-18 21-17 in 42 minutes but Kent’s Baxter, who is now based in Petts Wood, can be pleased at pushing him all the way, although he will be frustrated at not making more of a 15-12 lead in the second game.

    Read in the English baddy site that BE is looking for a Men's doubles coach

    and the names of people "applying" for the job include names like Park,Tan or Rexy.

    Is this a hoax?

    As far as I know, they are ex-coaches in Badminton England. Don't think they are coming back anytime soon.

    Briton Rajiv Ouseph run at the World Championships came to an end as he was resoundingly beaten 21-9 21-9 by world number one Lee Chong Wei in Paris.

    Ouseph was no match for the world number one

    The Malaysian took a mere 27 minutes to defeat the Londoner, who could console himself with the news of his rise to a career-high 14th in the world rankings.
    "I tried everything I could but he was too good," admitted Ouseph.
    "But it's been a good week," added the three-time and reigning English Open champion after his round three exit.
    Ouseph was the final Briton to be eliminated from the event at the French capital's Coubertin Stadium.
    Earlier, Nathan Robertson and Jenny Wallwork were beaten 20-22 21-12 21-18 in the last 16 of the mixed doubles against Thomas Laybourn and Kamilla Juhl.
    The English pair had beaten their opponents in the third round of this year's Yonex All England Championships.

    Default Badminton England blast 'ill-informed' critics as sport aims to relaunch Olympic bid

    By Rod Gilmour 7:43AM GMT 30 Dec 2010

    Badminton England's chief executive Adrian Christy has hit back at critics who led a "whispering campaign" against the national governing body and vowed to restore order within the sport's administration following a year of unrest.

    Resigned: Andy Wood left his post as head coach after only four months

    In the last six months alone Badminton England has seen performance director Ian Moss quit his post, a relatively poor showing at the Commonwealth Games and, earlier this month, UK Sport cut badminton's funding by £540,000 in the build-up to London 2012. It culminated last week when Andy Wood, the GB head coach, left his job after only four months with under two years to go until the Olympics. Wood, a key figure in the sport for over a decade, resigned after claiming that he lost control of his position after interference from senior officials.

    In a strongly-worded statement, Christy said: "The past 12 months have been really challenging for our Olympic programme and I don't hide from the fact that it has caused far too much disruption to the development of our players.

    "A lot has been said recently about the relationship between coaches, players and staff and there are elements of those comments that are true, there are others that are completely inaccurate. I am happy to take on board constructive criticism but refuse to rise to the bait when it descends into ill-informed gossip."

    Wood reportedly also quit over a row involving Nathan Robertson and Robert Blair, who rejoined the Scotland squad this month after switching allegiance to England eight years ago. It is understood that Blair was banned from attending training sessions at Badminton England's headquarters in Milton Keynes.

    Default 06.01.11 Robertson and Wallwork cling on in Super Series finals

    Name:  image-9929-220-auto-both-both-85-5.jpg
Views: 633

    NATHAN Robertson and Jenny Wallwork suffered their second consecutive defeat at the Victor Super Series Finals in Taiwan today – but were then handed an unexpected lifeline in their bid to reach the semi-finals.
    The Commonwealth silver and European bronze medallists lost to China’s Yonex All England champions Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei 21-15 21-14 to follow on from their three-game defeat by former world champions Thomas Laybourn and Kamilla Juhl on day one.
    But the Danish pair then pulled out of the tournament – Laybourn has been troubled by a hip problem – and that opening win was deleted from the Group A standings.
    England coach Julian Robertson said: “It means Nathan and Jenny have to beat their Thai opponents in straight games tomorrow to reach the knockout semi-finals on Saturday." Songphon Anugritayawan and Kunchala Voravichitchaikul had won their opener against the Chinese third seeds in three games on day one.
    Tomorrow's match will be the first time the England and Thailand pairs have met.

    NATHAN ROBERTSON and Jenny Wallwork’s bid for a place in the semi-finals of the Victor BWF Super Series finals ended in disappointment in Taiwan today.
    The Commonwealth silver medallists needed to win their final group match in straight games to go through but instead they lost 21-16 14-21 21-17 in 45 minutes against Songphon Anugritayawan and Kunchala Voravichitchaikul.
    It meant the Thai pair went through in top spot in Group A while joint third seeds Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei, China's Yonex All England champions who beat the England pair in straight games yesterday, go through to tomorrow’s knockout semi-finals.
    Top seeds Thomas Laybourn and Kamilla Juhl beat Robertson and Wallwork in three games on day one but the Danish pair’s result was deleted when injury forced them to pull out on day two.
    The qualifiers in Group B were still to be confirmed with one match still to play.
    Robertson and Wallwork will now turn their attention to the Korean and Malaysian Open Super Series events later this month.

    Default 15.01.11 England stars back in the Super Series swing

    Name:  image-5909-220-auto-both-both-85-5.jpg

    England's top players start their countdown to the Yonex All England Championships at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham in March when they tackle the first two Super Series events of the year in Malaysia and Korea this month.

    European bronze and Commonwealth silver medallist Rajiv Ouseph will be looking to consolidate his place in the top 16 of the world rankings when he contests the Proton Malaysia Open, starting on Tuesday.

    He is joined in the men's singles by team-mate Carl Baxter, his big rival when the English National Championships take place in Manchester from February 4-6.

    Ouseph will start against a qualifier but Baxter faces a tough test against Sony Dwi Kuncoro of Indonesia.

    After the Malaysian event, the England squad will move on to the Victor Korea Open, the first of the new Premier Super Series events which also includes the All England, from January 25-30.

    In Seoul the England squad will be joined by European bronze and Commonwealth silver medallists Nathan Robertson and Jenny Wallwork, who are ranked No.7 in the world.

    England suffered one setback this week when Peter Mills was forced to withdraw from the Malaysian men's doubles through illness, ruling out him and partner Marcus Ellis, the Bank of Scotland International champions who are up to No. 25 in the world.

    Their absence in Malaysia means that Andrew Ellis and Chris Adcock and Robert Blair with Indonesia's Flandly Limpele will lead the GB challenge in men's doubles.

    Ellis and Adcock begin their bid against Malaysia's Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari and Ong Soon Hock while Blair and Flandy, an All England runner-up and former England sparring partner, must tackle Tuesday's qualifying, starting against Malaysia's Marcel Simon and Tan Wee Gleen.

    Blair will also partner Gabby White in mixed doubles in both Malaysia and Korea, while Adcock and Scotland's Imogen Bankier will be looking to build on their success at the end of 2010.

    Adcock and Bankier have earned a place in the main draw but must face third seeds Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei, last weekend's BWF Super Series final winners from China.

    Blair must against go through qualifying with White and they start against Malaysian pair Ow Yao Han and Hoo Vivian Kah Mun.

    Kenneth Jonassen will be team manager and Pete Jeffrey the coach in both Malaysia and Korea.

    The Robert Blair/Flandy partnership, actually works quite well. I can see them going quite far in Malaysia and Korea.

    Default All England Badminton 2011: Rajiv Ouseph leads Britain's youthful charge as Olympics

    Birmingham will be awash with fast, frenetic and vociferous action this week. The Yonex All England Badminton Championships take place at the National Indoor Arena, while on the outskirts of the city it's Crufts, the annual dog jamboree.

    The world's best in show, though, will be found at the badminton. The Chinese, who won all five events in 2009, will be omnipresent again. The Danes always threaten.

    Meanwhile, England's youthful crop of burgeoning talent continue to grow on the international stage. Where once we relied on Nathan Robertson and Gail Emms for success at doubles, home-based players are also blossoming at singles.

    Middlesex's Rajiv Ouseph is one such leading light ahead of London 2012, the 24 year-old benefiting from Badminton England's raft of changes at the top of the game after Kenneth Jonassen started his role as men's singles coach last July.

    Ouseph won the US Open in Los Angeles, his biggest tournament win, the same week as the Dane, who retired in 2008, moved to Badminton England's headquarters in Milton Keynes. The Briton is now hammering on the door of the world's top 10 after a leap-bounding 18 months.

    "He has completely changed how we are training," the world No 14 says of Jonassen. "He has upped my level of intensity and has tried to make me more aggressive and harder to play against.

    Robert Blair and Gabby White won the title in Mulheim


    Robert Blair earned some compensation for having to retire in the mixed doubles final of last season's German Open by winning it this time around.
    The Scot, who partnered Imogen Bankier last year, and England's Gabby White defeated Japan's Shintaro Ikeda and Reiko Shiota 16-21 21-16 21-15.
    Their win in Mulheim was ideal preparation for the sixth seeds ahead of the All England Championships.
    Blair and White defeated Bankier and Chris Adcock in the semi-finals.
    That 21-17 21-17 victory over the Anglo-Scottish pair ranked 43 in the world, as well as a quarter-final win over number 25 duo Alexandr Nikolaenko and Valeria Sorokina, is expected to boost their own ranking further.

    Apology. It's my mistake. In the last paragraph of BBC news(on the link I provided). I found this

    Adcock and Bankier will face Ikeda and Shiota for the first time in the opening round on Wednesday.
    I thought they were saying about Blair and White playing against Ikeda/Shiota for the first time. Apparently, I misread.

    Default Gail Emms tells GB badminton to write off London 2012

    Nathan Robertson partnered Gail Emms to Olympic silver at Athens 2004


    British badminton should forget about London 2012 and focus its efforts on the 2016 Games, according to Gail Emms.
    The former Olympic medallist and world champion was talking on the day the sport was forced to admit it has almost no chance of success in London.
    In the four-monthly review of Team GB's preparations, badminton and handball were the only two sports to get "reds" in a traffic-light rating system.
    "I'm not at all surprised - this should have come two years ago," said Emms.
    "They should have had a complete overhaul after the Beijing Olympics and started from scratch.
    "But instead of being honest about who they had in the team, and who was going to be around in London, they got a bit carried away with the excitement of having a home Olympics."
