    Korea once again will have to rue and feel sad about not winning today. To be honest once again Kim Ha Na didn't do a good job. Hmmmm...... World ranked no 4 korean XD lost today. Sad.

    At 19-17, Li Yinhui push to the back was well in but given out and the umpire is not overruling it. A moot point now as Zheng Siwei/Li Yinhui won the match in the end. Admittedly, the KOR XD pair is pretty good, esp the lady Chae Yoo Jung who impressed me more.

    Congratulations to Li Yinhui / Zheng Siwei for playing so well to win their xd match. Must really admit that the koreans xd didn't play well today.

    Sung Ji Hyun made Chiang Mei Hui looked mediocre today who earlier disposed of two much higher ranked players along the way.

    Wow not bad this MS match of Richi Takeshita and Nguyen Tine Minh. I am watching this match live and I am just loving it. Both players are playing to their level best giving their all without holding anything back. Indeed surprising to get to see these 2 players playing in the semifinals today. But rest assured both players are doing a good job today. :):D

    BWF website says Takeshita confirm win, young, faster & smash powerful. I agreed too but then who knows Nguyen Tien Minh can spring in some surprise here. :p

    I won't have that many chances to see these 2 players in action during tournament time so i might as well grab hold of my chances by watching this MS match live today. :p

    I used to be a great fan of Nguyen Tien Minh but now he is getting older already. Just wonder when he will retire.

    On the other hand I always pity this guy, Richii Takeshita who has always been sidelined and not chosen for any team events. :(

    A must admit that there are just too many unforced errors from Nguyen Tien Minh today.

    When being interviewed Richii Takeshita said well the New Zealand weather suited me so I am happy to win today. I can understand Japanese language hence I knew what Richii Takeshita said in the interview today. Richii said he is happy to have a chance to play in New Zealand. He is smiling throughout the whole interview. So sweet.
