    Appreciate your efforts in advance.

    Cheers! :)

    The best Danish hope bows out -
    After wresting the first game, Lars Paaske & Jonas Rasmussen were felled by the Thai duo of Songphon Anugritayawon & Tesana Panvisvas (14-21, 21-17, 21-19). Incidentally, Anugritayawon means "The Blessed One"!

    Indian coach and All England 2001 champion Pullela Gopichand betrays no emotion as his ward Anup Sridhar concedes a game to Taipei's Yu Hsin Hsieh. Sridhar went on to win 22-20, 19-21, 21-11 after his opponent ran out of steam in the decider. (Incidentally, the bald expanse next to Gopichand belongs to Tom John, sometime coach to the great Morten Frost.)

    It took Andrew Smith 58 minutes, five arguments, two half-tantrums and an abundance of errors to dispose of Japan's Kenichi Tago 13-21, 21-18, 21-16. Only late into the second game did the mercurial Briton finally find his rhythm against Park Joo-Bong's latest Japanese protege.

    If Lu Yi is a bullet, then Petr Koukal is lightning.
    The Chinese youngster was quelled by the Czech upstart in shocking fashion: 21-16, 21-17. (Koukal will need all his wits around him if he is to subdue his next opponent - Andrew Smith) ;)

    In the players' gallery, Chen Yu takes a nap before stepping out to thrash Yeoh Kay Bin. (The Malaysian youngster was cheaply shut out by the Chinese senior in less than half an hour - 21-7, 21-13.) Elsewhere in the picture, Thailand's Boonsak Ponsana mentally chalks out his eventual win against home favourite Ronald Susilo while Misbun Sidek and his fellow Malaysian coaches take a breather.

    Lee Chong Wei serves to Sho Sasaki to win the first game 21-11.
    The Japanese turned out to be a tenacious customer, fighting off the Malaysian's attacks to win the second game 22-20.
    In the decider, the Malaysian's superior skills sank Sasaki's boat with awesome ease 21-8.

    Yikes

    My apologies for the amateur quality :eek:
    These were shot with a humble Panasonic Lumix FZ-18.

    The battery also ran out when I was framing Peter Gade's bandaged left little finger... so much so that I got neither his face nor a clear shot of the hand :(

    Hi Oldhand, good to note that you've joined the company of amateur photographers like Sealman and myself and contributed some colour to the SO tournament in BC.

    I thought I saw someone resembling you at the Premium Seats section. But I wasn't too sure as I thought you were not as 'heavy' as that big man.
    That would be a good place to take shots. Fastdrop was there too but he doesn't use his camera as much as we do. Unfortunately I was farther away in the mid-section and was unable to take clearer pics of the action in the courts but I guess it doesn't matter that much.

    Enjoy your shooting! :)

    If you had shot this a little more to the left, I would have been in the picture (in the corporate box). :p
