    A real bad day for the supposedly future pair for Indonesia. I have never expected that Markis/Hendra will lose to the scratch pairing of Hendry/Hendra.

    In MS, good to see Ronald won his match, as I expected earlier. KBH must really be at his lowest confidence ever with early exits at 3 consecutive Opens.

    i don't know what happened to them (kido/hendra). i watched them playing and with the way they were playing, no surprise they lost. seems like they under-estimated the opponent and also, lost concentration and the 1st game just slipped away. game 2 even worse, no communication between them, instead, like blaming each other, few times after hendra made mistake, kido just looked at the coach and his face like telling the coach 'what the hell is he doing'. so disappointing :(

    I was sitting with the japanese team all day and I can't speak japanese at all! I really regret not learning japanese. Shoji was sitting in front of me and when I tap his back to get his attention, he doesn't know what I am trying to say until I simply shove my pen and booklet at him and then he exclaimed "Ahh...". haha. And I was staring at his four NS8000 and it even crossed my mind when he left for a moment that I should just grab his bag and run. haha... Anyway, I'm a fan of Shoji.

    I also spent a lot of time looking at Kanako, Eriko, Tomomi, Aoki, Kaori. Hey, Kanako and Kaori look so much better in person.

    And these japanese girls can't stop eating all day; biscuits, chocolate, crackers and they even bought MacDonalds! Only to be told that they cannot consume the MacDonalds there. I should have stretched out my hand and asked for some of the biscuits. The dinnertime matches were so exciting that I had to bear through hunger just to watch those.

    I feel so embarrassed to be a groupie for trying to hunt down the players for autographs whenever they show up or walk past. There's still a whole lot of players to hunt down. Damn, Pi HongYan walked past my seat and when I noticed her, it was too late. She had her hair down and that's why I didn't realize its her. I only notice her when she turned around saying a few words to someone around me and off she went quickly. Its not easy trying to run after them among the seats because there's other people and racket bags on the floor. Nevermind, tomorrow I'll hunt her down.

    actually Kuan Beng Hong gave away lots of cheap points by smashing out the sidelines... there were 1 or 2 occasions when the line judge signalled the smashes were in but Susilo was upset, protested and eventually lost his concentration and the 2nd game. The line judge was also replaced.

    Im worried bout kuan beng hong.. not bout his skills though.. Im actually worried bout beng hong's confidence after a straight blow for crashing down in Philippines open n SIngapore Open.. I wonder whether he has any confidence left to play in the following tournaments.. or just disappear like other players

    Hi lightsmash, I stole a guest pass from a friend and sat at the corporate box (opposite the premium seats) in the morning. I had all the seats to myself but was too lonely :D decided to shift and sit behind the premium seats in the afternoon when my friends came.
