    I believe that Aprilla is in better form at this tournament. Therefore, I am expecting Aprilla to have a 3-games long match against Wang Xin. :):):)

    I believe that Wang Lin can win this match in 2 games.

    If it happens to be a 3-games match, then Wang Shixian will win. :):):)

    WX is the strong favourite

    .
    You are correct to say that WX is the strong favourite to defeat Aprilla in this match.

    What I am saying is: I am expecting Aprilla to give Wang Xin a good long 3-games fighting challenge in this match.

    So, let's wait and see. :):):)

    Taufik Hidayat was quite angry with BWF at the 2011 Singapore Open SS

    .
    WOW, Taufik Hidayat was quite angry with BWF at the 2011 Singapore Open SS.

    From this article, TH has had a few run-ins with BWF again. :):):)

    Source: http://www.todayonline.com/Sports/EDC110616-0000077/Angry-Taufik-clears-his-name

    ====== * ======= start article ====== * ======


    SINGAPORE - He had just emerged victorious after an almighty first-round scrap with Malaysian upstart Daren Liew.

    But minutes after his win, Taufik Hidayat, the world No 3 and top seed at the US$200,000 (S$246,899) Li-Ning Singapore Open badminton championship, was not interested in talking about his 64-minute battle.

    Instead, the Indonesian star was adamant his name was cleared, after the press back home had branded him "unprofessional" when he failed to show up for a scheduled pre-tournament media conference on Monday.

    The fallout over Monday's controversy when a number of the game's top stars, including China's Lin Dan, were accused of letting their sport down continued on the sidelines of the opening day of the main draw, when Taufik reacted furiously over a report in his native Indonesia.

    Taufik, who beat Liew 22-24, 21-12, 21-18, apologised after his match for failing to turn up on Monday.

    Then, after seeking out and spotting Badminton World Federation (BWF) Superseries marketing manager S Selvam, he seemed to direct his comments at the official, saying: "I've been called unprofessional. Why am I not professional? I saw the paper from the BWF. Where is the manager from BWF ... Why (did) you say in the Indonesian paper I was not professional? It's bad name for me."

    Taufik, who has had a few run-ins with badminton authorities in the past, added: "Indonesia is big, badminton is big (in Indonesia) and it's my name that is (being made to look) bad. I never say no to press conference(s). You know me."

    The 29-year-old was fuming over a report in Indonesian daily Kompas, which quoted Danish star Peter Gade as saying the BWF should help make the shuttlers "more professional". Selvam was quoted in the article as saying there were rules requiring players to attend media events.

    The controversy erupted after several players, including defending Singapore Open champion Sony Dwi Kuncoro - who fell 21-19, 21-13 to China's world No 9 Bao Chunlai last night - failed to attend scheduled media conferences on Monday. A number of China's star names who did show up fielded questions dismissively.

    All teams, upon arrival in Singapore, were given their passes and information booklets, informing them of their media obligations, among others. But Taufik, 29, arrived separately from the Indonesian national squad as he now competes as an individual. A representative was dispatched to pick up his documents but neither he or his coach Mulyo Handoyo receive any word about their obligation on Monday.


    Tournament media director Rose Tan said in a statement: "Our investigation showed that both Taufik's and Sony's representatives were handed the circulars. Unfortunately, the message was not relayed to the players."

    While the BWF did bring up the issue of possible fines for the shuttlers, MediaCorp understands that Taufik and Sony will not be punished.

    The brouhaha may have affected his concentration in the first game against Liew, but slowly, the former Olympic and world champion regained his composure in his quest for a third Singapore Open title.

    "I haven't played here for about two years ... and had to get used to the conditions again, and the new Li-Ning shuttlecock, which I've not tried before. The third set was lucky for me as Liew made many mistakes," he said.

    ====== * ======= end article ====== * ======

    BWF has again shown that they only communicated well with National Associations, but not with independent/individual players going on their own, such as Taufik Hidayat. :eek::eek::eek:

    About 60 to 70% of the matches are close.

    Will LHI win against CL this time?

    My bedtime is 10pm. I would give a walkover if asked to play at 12.30am. Wonder if LCW could play at that hour, considering he is always at the training ground by 6am?
    Poor scheduling by the organizers.

    If you look at the matches that were played yesterday, quite a few ended up as 3-games matches. It showed how equal in performances the opponents were. And because of those close matches, later matches were completed past midnight.

    I am sure that the organisers would wish that all players and all officials (and themselves) could complete all matches and go home before 10:00pm too. :):):)
