    Good night folks. :eek::eek::eek:

    It's 3:16am in Mebourne now, and I can hardly open my eyes.

    I shall be returning to read after having some sleep. :):):)

    MS R16
    Simon Santoso
    [5] vs Wong Wing Ki [12] - Simon won easily last year, but this year, Wong has improved. It will be an interesting one to watch and Simon has the edge.

    Wang Zhengming [7] vs Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka [13] - Hayom fulfills his seeding. I don't think he can upset Wang.

    Chen Yuekun vs Taufik Hidayat [3] - a potential upset here but I am still sticking with Taufik for the winner.

    Kenichi Tago [8] vs Alamsyah Yunus [15] - likewise, Alam has fulfilled his seeding. Tago should progress to QF.

    MD R16
    Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan
    [4] vs Patipat Chalardchalaem/Nipitphon Phuangpuapech - Kido/Hendra should take this one.

    Hendra A. GUnawan/Alvent YUlianto Chandra [5] vs Liu Xiaolong/Qiu Zihan - an upset is also possible here with the improvements made by the CHN pair lately.

    Yohanes Rendy Sugiarto/Afiat Yuris Wirawan vs Chai Biao/Guo Zhendong [3] - Chai/Gua are superior.

    Angga Pratama/Rian Agung Saputro vs Bona Septano/Mohd Ahsan [2] - a bad draw for Angga/Rian but with Bona/Ahsan's still inconsistent performance, they could possible upset their seniors.

    WD R16

    Nitya Krishinda Maheswari/Nitya Feinya Agustine vs Jung Kyung Eun/Kim Ha Na [8] - I would very much like Nitya/Feinya to win this one to show that they are ready to take on the top 16 pairs. Jung/Kim have the slight edge.

    Chou Chia-Chi/Yang Chia-Chen vs Meiliana Jauhari/Greysia Polii [4] - it was a good victory for Mel/Grace today. Hopefully, they can beat another TPE pair tomorrow.

    XD R16
    Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir
    [1] vs Lin Yu-Lang/Hsieh Pei-Chen - Towi/Butet proved me wrong today. I think they should win this one.

    Mohd Rijal/Debby Susanto vs Chan Peng Soon/Goh Liu Ying [5] - I don't think Rijal/Debby can beat the fastly improving MAS pair.

    Yoo Yeon Seong/Jang Ye Na vs Nova Widianto/Vita Marissa [8] - yet another KOR pair for Nova/Vita to handle. I hope they can at least fulfill their seeding.

    Hmmm, in that case,the smash winners may include all the overhead winners which are not necessarily smashes(a couple maybe) but punch clears, cross-court drop shots and placement shots, which WSX is well-known for. Thanks, anyway - don't know why I'm still so concerned about her:p:D

    Thanks for the reminder :)

    MS R16
    Tommy Sugiarto [9] vs Mohd Hafiz Hashim - this will be an interesting match. I hope Tommy can beat Hafiz to confirm that he's ready to be counted as one of INA's Thomas Cup players next year as Hafiz is likely to be MAS's 2nd or 3rd MS (depends on whether his ranking is still above Liew Daren by then).

    I didn't realize LXW was a whisker away from being eliminated by Kaori Imabeppu. Can't believe Imabeppu let a G2 20-16 lead slip. One more point and it would have been game, set and match. Kaori must be kicking herself. Chances like this don't come very often.

    I guess,a distraught Kaori Imabeppu was so rattled by the G2 narrow defeat that she self-destruct in G3. I'm not sure whether Kaori really played above herself in G1&2 or LXR was off-colour for most of it;in any case,let this be a valuable lesson for Kaori,whether it will haunt or strengthen her going forward we shall see (so easy for me to say sitting in the comfort of my home surmising).

    Update:
    LHI on his way to a facile win over HHY.
    Kido/Setiawan likewise over Chalardchaleam/Puangpuapech
    edit: caveat: barring any Kido hissy-fits :D

    And the scary one (for me): Salakjit took game 1 over CSC, 21-17, but thankfully CSC leads 15-10 in game 2. Phew!

    This is second time that LXR almost lost to Kaori...in Thai open..Kaori was ahead in second set before falling apart.

    A quick and easy victory for Kido/Hendra. Up next is either their countrymen Alvent/AG or Liu/Qiu.

    CSC restores order on court 2. They should clone her and send out 5 of her on all tournaments. She is pure pleasure to watch!!

    End of the road for Choo and Veeran of Australia. Chris must be crying in his pretzels.

    Wow! Either CSC is turning it on or Salakjit has switched off. CSC 17-5 in game 3.

    For Salakjit to win a game these days is an achievement in itself. She has been on a long downhill slide; maybe she's hit rock bottom and is on the upswing.. CSC 17-5 G3
