    Hello, everybody, I m kinda curious and sad bcoz almost all top guns were KO in the beginning rounds? They re:
    1 Lars/Jonas vs THAI MD in round 1
    2 Jens/Lungaard vs INA MD in round 1
    3 Chen Yu vs Nguyen in round 2
    4 Xie Zhong Bo vs Latif in QF
    5 Boonsak vs Kuan Ben Hong in round 2
    6 Shintaro vs TAIWAN MD in round 2
    7 Alvent & Lulu vs MAS MD in round 2
    8 Laybourn vs TAIWAN MD in round 1
    9 Pi Hong Yan vs Firda in round 2
    10 Etc, (but I dont care bout WD ====> 99.99% Chinese, right? :D:D:D)
    What s wrong with them? Can't be a coincidence, Huh? :confused:

    However, these are the best games that I found(in my opinion):
    1 PG vs LCW in SF
    2 ZB & GL vs Clark/ Kellogg
    3 Tine vs Wong Mew Chow in SF

    Please reply if u know something wrong or if u re interested :D:eek::(:p:rolleyes:.

    If you read the threads for each day, there's a total of 17 upsets for this tourney. That is, seeded players/pairs who lost to lower ranking ones.

    So far, finals no upset as yet.

    already type mah, just copy & paste, hence the different grammar.
    If I'm not too busy, there'll be one for Indonesia SS too.
    Our Limsy can do the honours of the 'unofficial' additions.:p
