    What is the most surprising result of these Championships?

    Agus beating an out of form Olympic champion and Mainaky to reach the Q/F
    Tam Kai Chuen beating in form Roslin
    Gong ZhiChao losing to team mate Gong RuiNa
    Sigit/Wijya out for the count.

    Another other suggestions welcomed. Or how about putting in some ranking order?

    Tam Kai Chuen beating Roslin and GRN beating GZC.
    Candra/Sigit loss to Kim/Ha not that surprising. Don't think they were playing that well together. C looks a bit out of sorts.

    Yeah, we all thought the WC women singles' title is GZC. To me, it's GZC exit. Not surprise at Roslin 2nd round exit, kinda expecting it...

    Mourning...

    Paid a visit to the Chinabadminton forum just now. Gong ZC is really the people's heroine... it seemed as if everybody (well, most of them) was mourning over her loss. Someone even wrote, "Now that Gong ZC has lost, so what even if the whole world wins"...

    You were really expecting Roslin to lose? Why?

    Can't really say why, just a feeling... He is not consistent especially in matches that really matter. And with his self-isolation, high expectation of him to perform well and his ranking one... I think that really weighed him down... No offense, but I doubt he is strong enough to cope with all these...
