    I am actually quite disappointed with China open this year. Being a six star open and having no live scoring. The excel spreadsheet method is terrible, they could have at least created a decent website and updated the scores every 1 hour or so.

    Anyway, anymore results? Thanks to those people who are keeping us without live telecast updated. Thank you.

    chinese other q-finalists (apart frm Lin Dan, Chen Hong) are Bao CL, Li Yu, Chen Jing and Gong Weijie

    What are the Chinese MS players eating? In my memory, this is the only time where they have more representative in the quarters than their women counterparts.

    MS Q-Final lineup:
    Lin Dan v Chen Hong
    Li Yu (ousted WCH and Sony) v Kenneth Jonassen
    Bao Chunlai v Chen Jin (ousted Xia)
    Taufik v Gong Weijie (ousted Gade)

    Only a few years after Lin Dan and Bao started making an impact on the scene, their immediate juniors are already breaking rank. No other countries have such a high turnover rate.

    Maybe these new Chinese youngsters are the product of China's new revolutionary training method, where all round skills take precedence over power and aggression.

    But this is amazing, there are six Chinese players in the quarter-finals. Peter Gade, Taufik, Agus Hariyanto and Sony could even lose to the junior players. Thinking of it, Chinese players aren't given the stage for them to perform.

    MD Q-Final lineup:

    1. Jens Eriksen/Martin Lungaard v Chan Chong Ming/Koo Kien Kit
    2. Jung Jae Sung/Lee Jae Jin (ousted Fu/Cai) v Candra/Sigit
    3. Fairuzizuan/Lin Woon Fui (lucky draw but good job anyway) v Sang Yang/Zheng Bo
    4. Choong Tan Fook/Chew Choon Eng v Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen

    Match no 4 would be the match of to watch out for.
    Also interesting to see the new partnership of Chan/Koo.

    WD Q-Final lineup:

    Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen v Lee Kyung Won/Lee Hyo Jung
    Zhang Dan/Zhang Yawen v Du Jing/Yu Yang
    Saralee T./Sathinee C. v Wei Yili/Zhao Tingting
    Rikke Olsen/Mette S. v Gao Ling/Huang Sui

    An all-Chinese semi-fnal? Would that be the first? In the past, even if the Chinese dominate this event, there would be someone like Ra/Lee to get a semifinal spot.

    Li Yu didn't really beaten Wong Choong Hann, WCH is having a flu n he gave up in the 3rd set. Some kind of walkover i think...He won the 1st set but I think he's too sick to continue. The match lasts for 40min n I think WCH gave a good fight! Not meaning Li Yu is not good, just clarifying(on behalf of WCH, although i'm not asked to do so...) It's very pityful to be sick at this time. By the way, there are lot's of surprises in this China Open, juz can't imagine how XXZ is beaten in straight game. All Chinese in the last 8 except for Taufik n Jonassen, I wonder how the coach manage to produce so many good players in a time...

    The two new Malaysian scratch pairs are quite impressive :)

    Ya, too bad Tan Bin Shen & Ong Soon Hock are beaten by Chan/Koo, they're gd. I've seen all the 3 double teams playing in the local tournament lately, they're very gd. Chan/Koo won all the local titles in last August n September, beating Tan/Ong in the finals. The scratch pair (Choong/Chew) did surprisingly well. They paired up because of Lee Wan Wah's injury. He has to rest for 6 months.

    They are up against the world champs and the All England champs next, not easy by any measure.

    They are not as scratch as you may think. At least Chan/Koo should remain a permanent partnership. If only Chan is as good as he once was.

    Bao has switched to MP99 for a while now...I also saw a pic of him using it in the china open pics thread.
