    5 straight pts from the CHN pair to narrow the gap to 11-12.
    Luckily, Edo/Lingga also won 4 pts in a row to maintain the 5 pts gap at 16-11.

    Phew...at last Fernando Kurniawan/Lingga Lie win their first match in 2009 after beating Chai Biao/Liu Xiaolong 21-17, 19-21, 21-16. They will face their senior Hendra Aprida Gunawan/Alvent Yulianto Chandra for a place in the last 8. I think AG/Alvent will progress.

    Surprisingly, only 4 casualties from the INA team which include 2 expected defeats from the non-Pelatnas XD pairs. Wifqi/Afiat also lost to a seeded player, while Maria's loss was kinda understandable and expected as well (at least to me).

    Good first results for the Pelatnas's new and young WD and XD pairs.

    Likewise, Mak Hee Chun/Tan Wee Kiong are not having a good day as they lost to Hendri Kurniawan Saputra/Hendra Wijaya in straight-sets.

    There can only be 8x5=40 slots at the Quarter-Finals

    .
    limsy ... There can only be 8x5=40 slots at the Quarter-Finals. If MAS can have 10 slots, I think MAS would be happy. :):):)

    Thanks to all who commented on Day 2 matches. Some good reading.
    Big disappointment that LCW was eliminated. Let's move on to Day 3.

    MAS players can only boleh if they try their best

    .
    limsy ... We see that you are now being influenced by negative thoughts. :(:(:(

    To boleh means that MAS players can do it. And MAS players can only boleh by trying their best.

    If MAS players stop trying, then MAS might as well not have a team at all. :eek::eek::eek:

    GIANT-KILLER: Chen Long,

    The Hindu
    26 March 2009

    Lee, Chetan Anand make an early exit
    World No. 9 and second-seeded Saina advances with ease

    GIANT-KILLER: Chen Long, a former World junior champion, shocked World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei in the first round.

    HYDERABAD: Former World junior champion Chen Long of China knocked out World No. 1 and top-seed Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia 7-21, 21-16, 21-18 in 50 minutes in the first round while Chinese Zhou Wenlong ousted second-seeded and World No. 12 Chetan Anand 21-9, 22-24, 21-8 in the second round of the $120,000 Yonex-Sunrise India Open Gold Grand Prix badminton championship at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium on Wednesday.

    After tailing 6-12 at one stage, the erratic Lee showed a few glimpses of his class in the decider to level the scores 18-all. But, a stunning backhand smash and then a disputed service call saw Chen take a 20-18 lead. Eventually, Chen emerged a deserving winner with a stunning forehand smash. Lee blamed his defeat on food poisoning and substandard umpiring.

    Chetan was patchy in his game against Wenlong. Chetan said he found it difficult to push his strokes because of the draught. Chetan saved two match-points in the second game to extend the contest, but succumbed in the decider.

    World No. 9 and second-seeded Saina Nehwal also complained about the draught, but managed to beat Chew Yen Daphne (Malaysia) 21-6, 21-10 in the first round.

    The major upset in women’s section came when Beiwen Zhang of Singapore shocked Beijing Olympics bronze medallist and fourth-seeded Maria Kristin Yulianti (Indonesia) 18-21, 21-11, 21-19 in the first round.
