    Another long day is in store for tomorrow esp for men's and women's singles. Both events will see out 2 rounds by the end of tomorrow night.

    MEN'S SINGLES (starting from 10:20am)
    Peter Gade vs Roman Spitko

    Ronald Susilo vs Juergen Koch -- can this be the start of a revival from the local favorite? If he's in top form, he should win.

    Bao Chunlai vs Kendrick Lee Yen Hui -- a bad draw for Kendrick and Bao shouldn't have a problem advancing.

    Lee Cheol Ho vs Simon Santoso -- I have more and more confidence in Simon now. He should progress after disposing the 15th seeded Kasper Oedum today. His next opponent could yet again be Mohd Hafiz Hashim.

    Erwin Djohan vs Andrew Smith -- a winnable tie for the local player. Can Singapore have 2 players in the last 16?

    Mohd Roslin Hashim vs Kenneth Jonassen -- a tricky tie for Kenneth, but, he should advance.

    Round 3 will be played starting from 7:40pm. It will be a long night...

    WOMEN'S SINGLES (starting from 1:00pm)
    Chen Li vs Hirayama Yu

    Cheng Shaoh-Chieh vs Lu Lan (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- I would like to see Cheng beating the Chinese player.

    Chien Yu-Chin vs Saina Nehwal -- another interesting match and I would also like to see young Saina progressing.

    Gu Juan vs Petya Nedelcheva -- the Singaporean player has done well to qualify and she meets the 7th seeded Bulgarian. Again, I hope she wins.

    Kanako Yonekura vs Hwang Hye Youn

    Julia Wong Pei Xian vs Yao Jie -- Yao has not impressed since her recovery from injury. Julia might sneak a suprise win.

    Huang Chia-Tsin vs Xing Aiying -- a tie that the Singaporean can win.

    Eriko Hirose vs Zhu Lin -- the newly crowned Indonesia Open champion should win.

    MEN'S DOUBLES (starting from 5:00pm)
    Chan Choong Ming/Koo Kien Keat vs Rian Sukmawan/Eng Hian -- the Indonesian pair has suprisingly beat the Korean pair in 3 sets (with 22-20 in the last 2 sets). However, the erratic Malaysian pair should beat them.

    Hoon Thien How/Tan Boon Heong vs Guo Zhendong/Xie Zhongbo -- a real test of the young Malaysian pair's credential as an upcoming pair. Can they beat the more experienced Chinese pair?

    Jonas Rasmussen/Peter Steffensen vs Luluk Hadiyanto/Alvent Yulianto (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- a tough test for Luluk/Alvent. However, they should have an edge.

    Hendry Saputra Kurniawan/Hendra Wijaya vs Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah -- the Singaporean pair managed an upset in the last round. Can they repeat the feat tomorrow?

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES (starting from 3:40pm)
    Chien Yu-Chin/Cheng Wen-Hsing vs Tomomi Matsuda/Aki Akao -- the Chinese Taipei pair struggled to beat the local pair of Jiang/Li today. They should have an easier task tomorrow afternoon.

    Hwang Yu Mi/Kim Min Jung vs Wong Pei Tty/Chin Ee Hui (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- a tricky tie for the Malaysian pair, but, they should manage it.

    Zhang Dan/Zhao Tingting vs Miyuki Maeda/Satoko Suetsuna -- when it comes to play a Chinese pair, seeding does not matter! Zhang/Zhao to prevail.

    Fu Mingtian/Yao Lei vs Gail Emms/Donna Kellogg -- the Singaporean pair won their first match today and faces the second seed tomorrow. It's unlikely they will win again.

    MIXED DOUBLES (starting from 9:00am)
    Nathan Robertson/Gail Emms vs Lars Paaske/Helle Nielsen -- a tricky tie for the top seed, but, they should win.

    Jens Eriksen/Mette Schjoldager vs He Hanbin/Zhang Dan -- again, a tricky tie for the Danes, but, one that they should win.

    Robert Blair/Natalie Munt vs Tri Kusharyanto/Minarti Timur (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- the Indonesian veteran has yet again exceeded my expectation by beating the younger Singaporean pair. Can they reach another quarter-final tomorrow?

    Jonas Rasmussen/Britta Andersen vs Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir -- tricky, but still manageable for Nova/Butet. The only pairs that can trouble them in SO are Xie/Zhang and Robertson/Emms.

    Mohd Rizal/Greysia Polii vs Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen -- it will be a huge upset if Rizal/Greysia can beat the second seed.

    badMania, thx for the updates...Hmm, a bit surprise to see only 2 pairs of CHN's WD in there(i assume the Fu/Yao pair is from CHN as well)..Sorry, are these just some of the WD draw or all of it??..:confused: :rolleyes:
    BTW, where are you doing the updates/internet access??..Are you writing this from SIS media center??or in an internet cafe or from the hotel room??..:rolleyes:

    Those are just some of the WD draw. Fu/Yao pair is singapore pair. There are still three chinese pairs in the draw: Zhang/Zhao, Wei/Zhang, and Yang/Zhang.

    The first results of the day: Zheng Bo/Zhao Tingting beat their French opponent easily 21-14, 21-9. They will meet Nathan Robertson/Gail Emms tomorrow. Robertson/Emms themselves beat Lars Paaske/Helle Nielsen 21-18, 21-15 in the second set.

    The other on-going matches: the local favorite Li Li takes the first set in her match against Diana Dimova 21-10. Tri Kusharyanto/Minarti Timur are trailing Robert Blair/Natalie Munt 16-21 after having an early lead. Surprisingly, He Hanbin/Zhang Dan leads Jens Eriksen/Mette Schjoldager 21-15.

    Li Li has won her match 21-10, 21-14 and is through to Round 1/16 to be player later today.

    Meanwhile, He Hanbin/Zhang Dan shocks the 3/4th seed Jens Eriksen/Mette Schjoldager 21-15, 22-20. They will meet Robert Blair/Natalie Munt, who themselves beat the veteran pair of Tri Kusharyanto/Minarti Timur 21-16, 21-17.

    Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir are also through to the quarter-final after beating Jonas Rasmussen/Britta Andersen 21-12, 21-15. They will meet Anthony Clark/Donna Kellogg next, after the English pair beats the local pairing of Hendra Wijaya/Frances Liu Fan 21-9, 21-16.

    Saina Nehwal clinches the first set in her match against Chien Yu-Chin 21-18! A good start for her. However, she now trails 11-13 in the second set.

    Tsai Chia-Hsin/Cheng Wen-Hsing also create another upset after their 21-19, 21-15 win over Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter-Juhl. A bad day for the Danes in the XD event. All their seeded pairs are now eliminated.

    Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen take the first set 21-15, but Mohd Rizal/Greysia Polii manage to force them to a rubber after the promising Indonesian pair takes the second set 21-12. It will be an interesting rubber and I hope the Indonesian pair can win it!

    Saina Nehwal wins her first match after taking yet another close second set 21-19. She now faces the winner between Gu Juan and Petya Nedeltcheva.

    Mohd Rizal/Greysia Polii also win after their Chinese opponent retired in the rubber set. Possibly an injury to either Xie or Zhang? This could affect the men's and women's doubles matches later on.

    So, the lineup for the XD quarter-final is as follows:
    Nathan Robertson/Gail Emms vs Zheng Bo/Zhao Tingting (MATCH OF THE ROUND)
    Robert Blair/Natalie Munt vs He Hanbin/Zhang Dan.
    Anthony Clark/Donna Kellogg vs Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir
    Tsai Chia-Hsin/Cheng Wen-Hsing vs Mohd Rizal/Greysia Polii

    Ronald Susilo beats Juergen Koch as expected 21-10, 21-14.
    Nguyen Tien-Minh also continues to impress after beating Tan Chun Seang 23-21, 21-10. He faces Ronald next. The local favorite has the chance to advance to the quarter-final.

    Peter Gade and Chen Yu also progress as expected in 2 straight sets. They will clash later in the afternoon.

    The local girl Gu Juan nearly won the first set, but she eventually lost in straight sets to the 7th seed Petya Nedeltcheva 21-23, 7-21. The Bulgarian will play Saina Nehwal next.

    A good effort by Kendrick. However, Bao Chunlai is still too strong for him and he lost gallantly 12-21, 21-19, 10-21. Bao will play Eric Pang, who won against a Malaysian player 21-14, 21-16.

    Chetan Anand also wins his match quite easily 21-14, 21-9.

    After a tight first set (22-20), Simon Santoso pulls away from Lee Cheol Ho early in the second set and eventually wins comfortably 21-9. He will meet Mohd Hafiz Hashim in the match of the round tonight, after the Malaysian also wins 21-15, 21-14. Meanwhile, Saman Ismail wins the rubber set 21-12 in his match against Peerasak Wirayapadungpong after 2 tight sets 19-21, 22-20. He will play Chetan Anand later today.

    Bjorn Joppien and Chen Hong also win the first set. Barring any spectacular collapse, they should meet in Round 3 tonight.
