2011 All England: Day 4 Friday 11-March (Quarter-Finals)
Today, we have arrived at the Quarter-Finals.
The schedule of matches are found located at;
For the Mens Singles, all eyes will be on Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan in their respective halves.
For the Womens Singles, probably 2 CHN players (in the top half of the draw) would make it to the Semi-Finals. In the bottom half, Singaporean Gu Juan, a qualifier, may surprise us.
For the Doubles, our exciting pairs will keep us in suspense. Just cannot tell which pairs would be moving into Semi-Finals.

It’s another day of upsets on day 2 of the main draw.
JJS/LYD (3) lost to CB/GZD
JC (6) lost to MZ
BYJ (8) lost to GJ, qualifier from Singapore
TA/LN (7) lost to MF/BM
CHL/CWH (8) lost to HS/AR
Notable wins were chalked by:-
PHG (4) beat KT
SM/MN beat DJ/PP
NTM beat DPY
MZAL/HTH (Mas) beat HE/KH
KY (Jpn, TH’s conqueror) beat WZM
PHG at 34 years of age showed KT, 2010 MS finalist, what it is that makes him one of the top-ranked MS badminton players in the world. At 20-16 in the 2nd game, KT had no reason to lose the next 6 points to PHG who went on to win 22-20. If KT had won the 2nd game, it could well be that he would have won the match as he was getting into his stride and had tons of energy.
Chen Jin’s loss to Marc Zwiebler was really mind-boggling. The German has never won a super series tournament and for him to beat the world champion is really astounding.
The two Malaysian men’s doubles pairs are keeping the Malaysian flag flying and it is hoped that they will continue to surprise. Their opponents in today’s quarter finals are tough nuts to crack.

Kazuchi Yamada has now caught the eyes of many having disposed of TH in R1 and Wang Zhengming in R2. Will he be able to knock out another unseeded player, Marc Zwiebler (GER), who sensationally eliminated the highly regarded World Champion CJ #6 to make it to the QF?
Whatever the outcome, either of these two unseeded "stars" will make it to the SF tomorrow at the expense of the Chinese.
JPN's WD produced the best results with 2 teams entering the QF.
Shizuka Matsuo/Mami Naito surprised Du Jing and Pan Pan with a relatively easy 21-17, 21-19 win while
Misuki Fujii/Reika Kakiiwa eliminated their taller opponents from DEN, Chrisitnna Pedersen/Kamilla Rytter Juhl in a rubber, 21-12, 17-21, 21-15 in 57 min.
However their 3 MD teams failed to surpass those from MAS, KOR (both matches stretching to 3 games) and INA.
As for petite Eriko Hirose, she continued her good run by eliminating arch-rival Salakjit Ponsana (THA) in 3 games. But against Saina Nehwal today, she'll need more than luck to survive.
GERMANY is also making some kind of statement with representatives in 3 events, MS, WS and XD. They seem to establish themselves as No. 2 in Europe, since ENG, NED and other European nations are not, or not as well, represented.
I thought GERMANY was robbed of the privilege of hosting the Super Series in favour of FRANCE some time back, and this in a way has shown what Germany is capable of in badminton instead of France.
