    Default Quarter Finals Results and Pictures

    I was there last night but went off earlier at around 9.30 pm.

    Yes indeed Mountbatten, with many Chinese Swimming Club players led by Victor Sim who played in the Veterans doubles, created an upset over Yew Tee, led by Singapore Sports School Indonesian assistant coach, Ardian K, who played XD and won.

    Once again I met BC member "Simon Santoso" whom I got to know during the last Singapore Open. He will be at the SIS in June as well.

    Results
    (from my badminton kaki Adrian Ng who won his XD match for Yio Chu Kang:

    Mountbatten bt Yew Tee 3-2
    Sembawang bt Chua Chu Kang 3-2
    Yio Chu Kang bt Bedok 3-0
    Toa Payoh Central bt Tanglin-Cairnhill 3-0

    Victor Sim who is a member of the SBA Management Committee, played with his CHN partner to clinch a hard-fought 3-game point for Mountbatten in the oldest category.

    Ex-Singapore WD "foreign talent" international Jiang Yanmei played for Sembawang and won a crucial point in XD.

    Bedok, despite having ex-internationals Lee Ah Ngo and Robert Lim, lost to Yio Chu Kang in the veteran doubles. YCK also has ex-international Steven Oh on the opposite side.

    So this Community Games brought back many ex-internationals to make it more interesting.

    The Semi-Finals will be played on Monday 16 May at Tampines Sports Hall and the finals have been scheduled on Saturday, 4 June at Chua Chu Kang Sports Hall.

    For the SF:

    Yio Chu Kang vs Toa Payoh Central
    Mountbatten vs Sembawang

    Hope many of you can make it on Monday.

    Mountbatten can win their semi-final if they beat Sembawang in the veterans' doubles, mens and womens singles. The Mountbatten men singles player who played on friday, Hamon, is actually a doubles player if I recall correctly. I thought they will field Weiping (he played in MD) who would be a safe bet. The Mountbatten womens singles player Colleen should win her match unless Sembawang decides to field Jiang Yanmei who still look match fit.

    What a pity that Yew Tee lost to Mountbatten 2-3. Too bad all the strong teams met in this half. It'll be nice to watch Mountbatten vs Sembawang on next Monday.

    Mountbatten very strong and all players are even. On next Monday they will win in veteran 100%.
    I think women's single is very important for both teams.
    Mix doubles, Sembawang's ex-national Jiang Yan Mei is obviously better than any other lady. Her defense is so good.
    Men's single will be another close fight.
    Sembawang's men's double is strong as Bai Song is so good.

    If Jiang Yanmei plays single, then the mix doubles will be not as good. Mountbatten's mix doubles also strong. They almost beat Yew Tee's Ardian K on Friday. I believe they are Indonesian players as well.

    Btw, Sembawang's Zu er(祖儿) is not weak for women's single.

    On last Friday I was impressed by Yew Tee's Elaine Chua who is only 13 years old. Her foot work is so fast, a good player and pretty girl.

    Default Semi-Finals Tonight 16 May at Teampines Sports Hall

    Confirmation of the QF results played on


    13 May 2011 (Friday) @ Tampines Sports Hall



    M114
    Mountbatten VS Yew Tee 3 - 2
    M113

    Sembawang VS Chua Chu Kang 3 - 2
    M112 Bedok VS

    Yio Chu Kang 0 - 3
    M111
    Toa Payoh Central VS Tanglin-Cairnhill 3 - 0

    And the SF challengers are:

    16 May 2011 (Monday) @ Tampines Sports Hall

    M116 Sembawang VS Mountbatten

    M115 Toa Payoh Central VS Yio Chu Kang

    It should be a very exciting contest tonight, especially between Sembawang and Mountbatten.

    It would appear that Sembawang should win the XD and MD as commented by tank2008 and it will take more than luck from Mountbatten to win the three remaining matches, assuming the latter has managed to tie 2-2 before that.

    These two teams appear to be the strongest and one of them will probably take the title in the finals.

    Yio Chu Kang should emerge as the other finalist.

    Overall I think Mountbatten is stronger, higher chance to win tonight. Too bad that I can't attend to watch. Will check the result tonight from sealman who is 99% attending. Haha...

    Yew Tee's first men's single player, ex-national, was not around, as he is in Indonesia now. If he was around, Yew Tee would likely have won the men's single, of course could go in semi-final, even beat Sembawang with good chance. Yew Tee will come back next year for sure.

    Wow Sealman, you must be a very good player now. I saw your pic in the Chinese Swimming Club Li Ning Doubles tourney for last year.

    FOC game and we know a lot of the players. So it's a must-watch event. Too bad I need to bring my little daughter to see doctor tonight. Otherwise my ears will be noisy. I regret that I didn't do it last night. Oh my goodness, what a pity. Haha...

    Default SF Exhilarating Upsets

    It was a most exciting night for those who stayed right to the end for the Semi-Finals.

    The matches went down to the wire and it took the last match to decide the winners.
    And it must be considered an upset for:

    Mountbatten beat Sembawang 3-2
    Toa Payoh Central beat Yio Chu Kang 3-2

    Mountbatten took the first match easily in the Veteran Doubles with ex-Singapore MS champion Wong Shoon Keat playing and added an invaluable point by Colleen in the following WS to make it a very favourable 2-nil against Sembawang.

    But Sembawang came back to win the XD and the MS to keep their hopes alive.

    Then came the important MD decider and Sembawang had a strong pair in Bai Song and perhaps another player from China. Not to be intimidated, the young team from Mountbatten capitalised on their speed and powerful smashes to subdue their more popular and experienced opponents to earn a place in the Finals. There was an immense outpouring of joy in the Mountbatten camp as the last point was played.

    The Toa Payoh Central vs Yio Chu Kang match started in a similar fashion when YCK took 2 early points from VD and WS. TPC put up an uninspiring performance and many like me thought the match would be over very soon.

    However, the ensuing XD took a surprise turn when TPC asserted their superiority over YCK with good anticipation, speed and placements. YCK was completely flabbergasted and it was inevitable that they would lose.

    So TPC won back a match to make it 1-2, still with a chance.

    YCK's MS Nigel (?) in black seemed very confident against TPC's long-haired Woo in the early rallies when the latter struggled to return Nigel's well-placed shots. It was to Woo's credit that he never gave up and chased everything that came back to him. He forced a rubber on Nigel and his tenacity soon cause Nigel's game to fall apart.

    TPC supporters instantly became alive and rallied their last MD pair to do better.

    It worked as TPC's young pair was too strong for YCK. It was incessant attacks on the YCK team which could only give token resistance with high returns for yet another smash from their opponents, Darren and Adrain.

    TPC turned delirious shouting, clapping, smiling and rushing out to hug their heroes while Adrain was still lying on the court seemingly disbelieving that they had won the most crucial winning point for their team.

    The finals should be another interesting match.

    Bai Song's partner is Darry who is Singaporean, single player. Sembawang fielded Xie Ming for single game and won. He played mix double in last round. If Bai Song could partner with Syafiq or Xie Ming, then can likely win the men's doubles. If Li Yu Jia can recover early enough to play mix and let Jiang Yan Mei play single, then can secure a win in lady's single. But too late. Haha...

    Even w/o Li Yu Jia, but if they field Jiang Yan Mei for WS, Xie Ming for MS, Bai Song/Syafiq for MD, and give up XD, i think they may have higher chance for winning the game in this case

    Oh yes, that's true. I will discuss with coach Bai why he didn't do so. Haha...

    I think Sembawang had their reasons for this lineup.

    Shall we have a poll to name the best performers of each event?

    1. VD
    2. WS
    3. XD
    4. MS
    5. MD

    Who shall start first?
