    What abt Jie YAO's loss to Ella KARACHKOVA in 2nd round. It might not be the top 3 upset but at least top 10.

    Watchout for Kenneth Johannsen! He is playing very well and in superb shape. The way he demolished Wacha last night wowed me. This old horse may just win the title.

    Of course she is not feeling well. I saw eating KFC and munching away french fries at cafeteria 2 nights in a row, all by herself. Fastfood are bad for you girl.

    Chinese singles always like to take the rest for granted. It is a lesson for them.

    coming to a court near you...
    LYD/JJS beating JE/ML hardly constitutes an upset. Anyone who knows badminton know that this Korean pair is highly ranted and dangerous, and would have more titles under their belt if not for LYD's injury. On paper it may have looked like a 13th seed upsetting a 5th seed but in reality these youthful Koreans beat up an aging Danish pair.
