There were so many good matches , it was hard to tear away for a quick dinner:just a Polar curry puff and cafe latte.No teh tarik here but the coffee is worth paying for;so rich and aromatic I can be converted on coffee. But as usual, the organisers never forget to treat badminton fans like children.No food is allowed in the seating area to prevent littering but spilling coffee is acceptable.Yet they don't have enough seats or tables for a crowd. And they have specials like buy 2, get 1 free. And I asked, 'How am I to eat 3 in one go, if I don't binge and i cannot bring the balance for my friends?' How come the food vendors don't realise that the silly food restriction actually hurt their sales? Some players deserve mention but only for matches after 3.30pm(I missed the earlier ones.) 1.Sho Sasaki and TCS were both outstanding in making LCW and PG work for their wins.Both lost badly in G1 but won G2 through sheer, relentless retrievals which surprised and frustrated their better opponents. Sho has always been dangerous to higher ranked players and can upset if he can take G1(ask PSH of his 3 match losses).There was no doubt of a LCW win but it's clear he wasn't prepared for Sho. TCS displayed a most wonderful competitive attitude.Despite 3 tough matches the day before and facing a formidable opponent,he played with confidence and the belief that he could defeat PG.This was a high quality match and PG could not believe TCS was matching him shot for shot. In G3,TCS played an over-the-net shot well. Unfortunately,the umpire gave the point to PG because the racket crossed the net. It was the right call; TCS asked the umpire for confirmation.Then TCS decided to skip a little before receiving PG's serve and went on to win the next few points! Whether winning or losing, his spirits remain constant and high. TCS has such a happy demeanor about him he's a delight to watch. For what he showed today, TCS has my vote as player of the tournament. He deserves every SS opportunity. 2.It's great to see KBH on the comeback trail.The first big difference is KBH now has obvious leg muscles like LCW.This suggests that he has been working on his fitness and stamina and it is paying off in his fluid movement and easy ,big, deceptive smash.KBH has a height advantage and was in commanding form in his win over RH.It is a pity he meets BP next.BP is in top form and should have a slight advantage but don't count KBH out. An upset is possible.
