    I don't think Rian/Yoke have beaten the World No 1 before. This is a very good result for them!

    Joachim PERSSON [6] [DEN] - [INA] Taufik HIDAYAT [4] 12-21 21-19 23-21 - Taufik should have won it in straight games considering he was leading 17-13 in the 2nd game after having won the 1st.

    limsy wrote in last week's thread: "show me the upsets"

    The INA MDs replied him with their excellent performances this week, esp Bona/Ahsan's victories over the fourth and sixth seeds. Rian/Yoke also toppled the top-seed, Olympics, and World Champions; despite being beaten by Razif/Tan last week.

    I hope the trend continues tomorrow, with either of the pair beating the Danes or home pair.
