I happened to get one result. From Badminton England.
England's top singles player Andrew Smith cashed in on Olympic rival Richard Vaughan's withdrawal to reach the last eight at the Yonex-Sunrise Indian Open in Hyderabad by winning two rounds today.
Smith, the world No 35 to Welshman Vaughan's ranking of 41 in today's new list, benefited from a first-round walkover when India's Anup Sridhar was forced out through injury.
He then defeated Iranian Ali Shahhosseini 21-14 21-15 to set up a last 16 clash with Chong Wei Feng, who beat China's second seed Chen Jin 25-23 12-21 21-16.
And Smith came through against Chong after a tense three game battle, winning 21-19 in the third.
He will now meet Malaysia's Kay Bin Yeoh or India's Anand Pawar.
The Hampshire player went into the Indian event with a 2,000 point advantage over Vaughan and after this week's action in Hyderabad, there will effectively be just the individual event at the European Championships in mid-April and the KLRC Atwater International in Montreal from April 22-26 for Vaughan to overhaul Smith in the race for the one men's singles place in the GB team for Beijing.
Olympic qualifying ends on April 30 and the following week's rankings will determine who goes to the Games.
but BWF already appointed India as the host of WC 2009.
