    I just managed to look into the arena for an hour today.

    Lee Hyn ll beat Junio. Junio was trying his best but Lee has more quality. Not to say Junio was bad. His stroke production was quite good as was his movement.

    Caught the last bits of the Yohan vs Taufik match

    Yohan won the 1st game 15-7
    Taufik won the 2nd game 2- 15

    Yohan was leading Taufik in the 3rd about 10-8
    Taufik caught up and pulled ahead to 12-14.
    Taufik gets the match point.

    Yohan pulls it back to 14-14!

    The setting seesaws with Taufik taking the first point and then Yohan picking up a couple of point



    Yohan manages to get the winner 17-15!!!

    Hafiz beats Agus H in 3 sets (again a very good match I was told) - and I missed it:mad:

    JR/Rikke won against Bergstrom/Persson convincingly

    Chen QQ/Zhao TT won convincingly against Tsai/Cheng

    Then I had a very brief chat with JR:D but had to make a dash back to work:(

    Lee/Yoo beat Candra/Halim in two sets.

    There's a few hundred people watching during the afternoon session today.

    Some people have taken time off work to watch.

    36 people on the 1st day doesn't surprise me cos we need to earn some cash to live1;)

    have you guessed there were some time management problems?:D

    For these results, I rang up some friends watching the matches from work to get some limited results.

    The time here is 2:13 AM and I just back to home. I left the stadium at 1:00 AM and there are still two games not finished. I must go as I need to wake up at 7:00 AM for work this morning. I guess those remaining games should be finished by now.

    Below are some update results :

    Bao beats Chen (13:15, 15:5, 15:12)
    Simon beats Peter Gade (13:15, 15:6, 15:5)
    Lin beats Hashim (16:17, 15:9, 15:7)
    Sony beats Kaldau (15:5, 13:15, 17:16) - this match lasted for incredibly long
    Xia beats Chen (15:13, 13:15, 15:13)
    Boesen beats Ng (15:9, 15:7)
    Polsana vs Yohan (15:12, ?, ?)
    Roslin vs Lee (???)

    For men doubles, all China pairs were out except Fu/Choi.

    For women doubles, there were no surprise.

    I must take a bath and goto sleep. Char more tomorrow morning. In short, those men singles matches tonight are wonderful !! Really surprised me !!

    It was the 1st game b/w Roslin and Lee when I left. The score should be 8:2 (Roslin was leading) as far as I remember.

    Fyi, ALL men singles games tonight were tough !!

    I don't know whether there will be a HK Open next year. In late November of Year 2000, I visited HK (my family is over there), and I hoped to watch the HK Open. However, it was cancelled that year because shortly after the Olympics, a lot of top players choose not to participate in that tournament. The tournament ended up being cancelled.

    In Year 2002, for whatever reason, HK Open was also cancelled.

    I guess there is no gurantee that there will be a HK open in year 2004 - especially when it is the year of the Olympics.

    Boonsak and Lee have won ... with 3 games as well ! I think they played over 2:00 AM yesterday.

    I've watched the 1st game of Boonsak and Yohan and I did think Boonsak had greater chance to win. He is a very talnet and skillsful player indeed.

    For Roslin vs Lee, I had a believe that Lee will win before they play, but I was a bit surprised Roslin was leading when I left. From the results (9:15, 15:1, 15:4), I think my original guess is still valid but Lee just needs more time to warm up.

    In fact, I found that a lot of players need at least 10-15 minutes to put them in the best form - the 1st round of a lof of matches last night were finished relatively quickly but the situation in the 2nd and 3rd rounds are completely different. The most typical example is the match b/w Gao/Huang vs SCHJOLDAGER/HARDER. The Denmark pair loose in ~10 minutes in 0:15 but they end up won the 2nd game - they did give pressure to the Chinese pair in the 3rd round even they loose end up.

    Among all the men sinlges players I watched last night, the most impressive one is Lin Dan. His skills is amazing and he played a lot of "smart" shots. Hashim is already very good imo (especially his overhead shots - very strong) ... but Lin is just better.

    Both Xia and Chen Hong made too many errors themselves but they were still in good form as far as I observed.

    Bao is an all round player. He is not as impressive (or enjoyable to watch) as Lin but he has pretty good defensive and made few errors. I think he has already gotten rid of his lose in Thomas Cup and improved a lot on his mental quality.

    Both Indonesia players have incredibly defense and Simon (I think he is very young) has better skills imo. These two players are not as impressive as those offensive players but they are also very strong imo.

    fine information Ricky :). What about the matches between Lin Hafiz, Gade-Sim santoso. Both Hafiz and Gade didn't get a lot of points in the last 2 sets. Were they tired or just outclassed by a bette opponent?

    According to worldbaminton.net, Peter Gade lacked stamina and just couldn't keep the pace going, whereas Simon Santoso's tactic seemed to be to make Gade run as much as possible...

    About Hafiz, according to Malaysian news (have a look this thread ), Hafiz seemed to slightly run out of steam after having already played three sets against Agus Hariyanto in the morning...
    But it also says that Lin Dan is in "devastating" form, and that Hafiz actually played a good match.
