    Simon should win this tournament... He is fresh and fit! Maria has a chance, but she might be too tired from all the Olympics competition and the hoopla that INA people give her after her Bronze win...

    I just arrived around 5.50 am and greeted by Taipeh badminton staff.
    It took about 40 minutes to one of the official hotel. Golden China.
    It was raining a bit

    Nah..it takes abt an hr to get to a hotel in city-centre in Taipei (by express bus), and around 40-50 mins by taxi. So, it's a normal ride :p

    the venue (台北縣立新莊體育館) is quite far away from the city and not accessible by subway. for budget travellers, the nearest subway would be banqiao station and you could take a bus (no.99 if i recall correctly) or cab to the venue
