    Good to see Michelle entering the semis tomorrow. She has been trying very hard for this year I think.

    Michelle's working hard. Looking forward to her game with Yip Pui Yin in the Semi's. Both of their previous matchups have gone to 3 games.

    The matches on Court 2 were more competitive with 6 out of 10 of them going the full distance of 3 games. On Court 1 almost 2 matches went to the decider with the last MD match stopped during the third game probably due to the injury of one of the Thai players.

    The last match of the day, the MD between China's Li/Liu and the scratch INA/JPN pair of Alvent/Ikeda seems to belong to the Chinese when they took G1 convincingly 21-12, but their opponents are fighting back by leading 17-15 in G2. Will it go beyond 2 games?

    The time now is 11.15 pm.

    Well it did, when the Chinese were defeated 21-19. Now fans will have to stay back longer for G3.

    The last match of the day stopped at 11.35 pm after the Chinese finally won the decider.

    Must be quite a record for Court 2 when 7 out of 10 matches went to three games.

    Maybe they should start the day at least an hour earlier at 2 pm so that fans can make their way home earlier, especially for those who need public transport.

    Just for the record, the QF took a total of 863 minutes or an average of 43.15 min per match to complete.

    Court 1 was shorter and took a total of 401 minutes or an average of 40.1 min.

    Court 2 took longer with 462 min or an average of 46.2 min.

    The organizer must have heard you and start tomorrow's matches at 2 pm. :)

    Haiz, without livestream, it's no fun following livescore, might as well just wait for the final outcome or check the end results later (which I did mostly).

    Hadn't expected some of the outcomes:

    in XD, the No.1 seed was toppled by the unfancied Lu Kai/Huang Yaqiong;in both XD SF, it's CHN vs KOR;

    in WS, the qualifier and junior CHN player, Qin Jinjing advanced to the SF to face the top seed Sindhu, a tall order for the CHN youngster, and Michelle Li did well to overcome Suo Di (did something happened to her in the latter half of G1?) but she'll be up against YipPY who on her day is a threat to most players so I'd expect YipPY to move on to the final;

    in MD, the young CHN pair, Li/Liu , continue their remarkable run but they'll be squaring off with the top seed tomorrow - it may be one bridge too far for the 2013 WJC; MAS MD Hoon/Tan also performing well to advance;

    in WD, CHN has 3 of 4 SF places with Bao/Tang once again looking strong;

    in MS, Son Wan Ho looks good for the final, hope Tian Houwei will join him but both their respective TPE opponents aren't the least bit easy to deal with.

    Just now noticed Qin jinjing is just 10 months younger than P.V.Sindhu. Interesting.. Qin Jinjing seems like having a good run in this tournament beating her senior compatriot in quarters.

    I can see Son Wan Ho getting into the top 10 by next year. He was almost there before being called up for military service. He's my favorite come-back man of the year.

    8 Hours Too Long for Semi Finals

    Whilst it would seem that fans are getting their money's worth to watch 10 matches without distraction in today's semis, the question begs - "Is it too long sitting down for about 8 hours to watch the court proceedings?" How many of us really work 8 hours in a row and do not lose concentration and interest?

    If all the matches are just as exciting and entertaining, I suppose it is much easier to
    pass time. But how often can we have these? Some fans just detest matches between compatriots as wasting time as full commitment from them is less likely.

    By having 5 matches on two courts, fans then can have a choice. They probably do not have to wait as long to watch their favourite players in action. The players themselves do not have to wait too long for their turn and get bored. Then matches should be fought more seriously and with greater commitment.

    Fans should be happier being able to get home or to other activities in a much shorter time.

    What a coincidence! All three matches lasted 42 minutes each.
