I remember last year he took a game off Chen Hong !! Chetan, Arvind in quarterfinals V.V. Subrahmanyam HYDERABAD: Former National champion Chetan Anand and All England quarterfinalist Arvind Bhat kept Indian hopes alive in the IOC senior Asian badminton confederation Championship on the second day when their teammates were shown the door in singles at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium here on Thursday. Incidentally, this is the best-ever performance by India in men's singles as for the first time two players entered the quarterfinals in the ABC edition. Local hero Chetan shocked fifth-seeded Shoji Sato of Japan 15-11, 15-12. He notched up a convincing 5-1 lead with his trademark combination of jump smashes and net dribbles in the first set only to see the opponent fight back to 6-8 at one stage. But, to his fortune, the Japanese player started misjudging the Hydearbadi's deep returns and conceded big points to enable the latter wrap up the first game 15-11. In the second, Sato put up a fine display with a combination of cross-court smashes and net dribbles to lead twice 6-3 and 10-7. But, once the Indian moved into top gear with his deep and precise returns and delectable drops, he was unstoppable and won the second game too in 54 minutes. Arvind got the better of an unfancied Iranian Naser Zadeh Ford 15-3,15-11 in 30 minutes. In the afternoon, 23-year-old Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand outplayed experienced campaigner Hashim Mohd. Roslni of Malaysia 15-9, 15-1 to enter the quarterfinals. There was very little Hashim, a former semifinalist of the All England championship, could do in the face of a high quality game from the Thai No. 1. "Well, even I did not expect such an easy win," said Boonsak later. If Hashim thought there could be some improvement in the second game, it was not to be as Boonsak never gave him any room and literally toyed with his opponent. The other notable winner in men's section was Athens Olympics bronze medallist Sony Dwi Kumcoro of Indonesia who also scored an easy 15-2, 15-1 win against Chen Chih Hao (Taipei) to enter the quarterfinals.
