    Jun Jae Youn is playing very well, she is in the WD event too. Next up for her is Kanako Yonekura. Don't think Kanako can win, but hope she will pull out an upset.

    MS QF Round

    (sorry guys for the belated pics & summaries)...Been a bit busy and had to catch some zzzz, for my jet-lag, after my long trip..:p..Anyways, here they are..Saw some very interesting and entertaining matches. 2 of which went to rubber sets, where in one of them, one of the top seeds and crowd favorite fell to another player who played in last yr's Final. Video clips will be up in a while, so hang on for those..:p;)

    Here are some pics and reviews of the MS QF Round:

    - Andrew Dabeka vs. Scott Evans - Saw a very interesting match with a very emotional ending. Evans was playing very casual the 1st 2 games, displaying some outstanding defense, But in the 3rd game, with some supports from the crowd, Dabeka tightened the game. In the end, even Evans had led for a brief period, and after a controversial and questionable call, Hughes complained to the SJ and Umpire where he received a black card. He went off to the side bench and was really upset. In a way Evans was upset at himself for blowing some lead.
    - Yousuke Nakanishi vs. John Moody - It was no contest, as the cat-quick Nakanishi really controlled the whole match. Moody tried his best, but just wasn't able to counter Nakanishi's speed.
    - Nguyen Tien Minh vs. Richard Vaughan - This is got to be the most entertaining early match of the day. The crowd favorite Nguyen T.M. really controlled the 1st game. But after winning the 2nd game, Vaughan seemed to gain more confidence. The momentum carried over to the 3rd game, and with several long shots and errors from Nguyen, opening the way for Vaughan take the lead. At the end, he was able to hold of Nguyen and advance to the Semis.
    - Lee Tsuen Seng vs. Sho Sasaki - Lee T.S. played comfortably with his experience, along with some nifty net plays. Sasaki made a valiant effort coming back in the 2nd game, but Lee T.S. didn't want any part of a rubber set and ended the match in straight sets.

    WS QF Round

    Another entertaining set of matches. One of which proved to be arguable the most entertaining match of the day.

    - Anna Rice vs. Yun Hwa Lee - Lee was in control of the match, while pushing Rice all over the court. Rice tried, but it was no contest as Lee won in straight sets.
    - Lili Wang vs. Pai M.J. - Saw a slow start by both players, but Pai M.J. was able to book herself in the Semis.
    - Elizabeth Cann vs. Agnese Allegrini - Witnessed an interesting match between these 2 young and hard-hitting players. Allegrini showed some grit, challenging Cann, but it was Cann who was able to hold off the Azzuri's charge.
    - Jun Jae Yun vs. Kanako Yonekura - With the crowd chanting & clapping "Nippon,clap, clap, clap, Nippon..." and "Ganbatte" very early on, Kanako would certainly welcome the support and cheer. And she surely needed it as the young and up and coming KOR Jun really controlled the pace of the match. In the 1st set, she was slow to react and seemed off pace. But after a scintillating rally in the 2nd set, inspired by some persistent & eye-catching plays along with a lot "Nippon, Nippon!!" and "Ganbatte! chants from the small Japanese supporters, it was the younger and more fit Jun who claimed herself a spot in the Semis. I think we have seen the return of KOR's #1 WS player, after ending her injury period. And OTOH, I think it's safe to say that perhaps Ms. Yonekura's badminton career is essentially in the end.

    MD QF Round

    Saw several exciting matches. In the end, 2 of the 3 U.S. pairs were able to advance to the Semis.

    - Yu Hsun Chien & Yu Lang Lin vs. Howard Bach & Bob Malaythong - Saw a player, in Chien Y.H., who played in the U.S. Open a few yrs back, but now is playing with a new partner. They held their own in the 1st set, but the experienced and more explosive U.S. pair finished off the match with the support of the many U.S. fans.
    - Roman Spitko & Michael Fuchs vs. Tony Gunawan & Raju Rai - Even playing against an opponent who is as tall as an NBA player AND playing with a singles specialist in Raju Rai, it was Tony who dominated the net and wrecked havoc against the Germans. In the end, it was the Master and his Student, working together and advancing to the Semis.
    - Naoki Kawamae & Kenishi Kawaguchi vs. Mike Beres & William Milroy - A pretty quick match, as the young JPN pair used their faster pace against the Canadians. Beres & Milroy didn't seem to find their pace and when they did figure out what to do, it was too late for them.
    - Halim Haryanto & Eric Go vs. Tadashi Ohtsuka & Keita Matsuda - It was an easy win for the experienced JPN pair, whilst at the same time set up a Semifinals Rd. meeting against their compatriots. The JPN pair was quick to the punch, as the newly formed U.S. pair just couldn't find their rhythm, nor defense nor their game.

    WD QF Round

    Many young pairs showed some of their skills, and did they. But it will be down to either the JPN and KOR pairs who will stake a claim in the Finals.

    - Panita Phongasavithas & Vimla Phongasavitas vs. Miyuki Maeda & Satoko Suetsuna - The 2 young local sisters/pair gave all they've got, but it was the more experienced JPN pair who locked the match and set themselves in the Semis.
    - Hyun Hee Joo & Seul Ki Oh vs. Pek Siah Lim & Chiou Hwee Haw - When the match started, i couldn't figure out who would win. But as the match progressed, it was clear that the young and stronger KOR pair would anchor themselves in the Semis and set up the 1st of 2 JPN vs. KOR matchup in the Semis.
    - Yun Hwa Lee & Jae Youn Jun vs. Jung Eun Ha & Yu Mi Hwang - It was the battle of the KOR pairs as the 4 compatriots duked it out. In the end, 2 of their compatriots had to give and it was Ha & Hwang who booked themselves in the Final.
    - Aki Akao & Tomomi Matsuda vs. Noriko Okuma & Michiko Kanagami - It was again a battle of 4 compatriots. But this time, it was betwee the Japanese. In the end, the #1 pair in the tourney stamped their way to the Semis, setting up another KOR vs. JPN matchup.

    XD QF Round

    8 pairs duked it out, but it wasn't til the last XD match, where the fans saw perhaps the most exciting and nerve-wrecking match of the day.:p:cool:..Sorry again for the not-so-sharp pics..:p

    - Tony Gunawan & Minarti Timur vs. Rudy Wijaya & Lili Wang - the 2 veteran pairs squared off first, but it was the crowd favorite who prevailed in the end. Once again, it was the age-less Minarti who set up the many smashes fom Tony as well as some splendid cross court net shots which drew some "Oohs and aahs" from the crowd, with the expected around of applauses.;):cool: A very enjoyable match, nonetheless and we probably won't see another match from these 2 doubles specialist legend again.
    - Howard Bach & Eva Lee vs. Tadashi Ohtsuka & Satoko Suetsuna - The current U.S. Nationals played and showed why they deserved the title this past Spring. With Lee setting up the attack and Bach pouncing and pounding his way to the gut of the JPN pair, it was an easy victory for the U.S. pair.
    - Mike Beres & Valeri Loker vs. Kennevic Asuncion & Kennie Asuncion - With the support of the Philippines crowd in the bleachers, the sibling Asuncion combo never let down their concentration and kept the pressure on the Canadians. In the end, with the great PHIL crowd support, it was Loker who had to fend off most of attacks from the PHIL pair and the Asuncion siblings made sure they booked their way in the Semis,
    - Halim Haryanto & Grace Peng vs. Keita Masuda & Miyuki Maeda - What a match it was!:cool: With the U.S. pair dominating & smashing their way to victory in the 1st game, it seemed like they would be on their way to the Semis. But NOOO, it wasn't to be. Lo & behold in the 2nd game, everything seemed to crumble and fall apart for the U.S. pair. As the match extended in the 2nd game and the JPN gained more confidence, the JPN pair closed off the 2nd game after Peng's net shot went wide and out. It was downhill from there for the U.S. pair as they just lost their concentration, and perhaps their energy in the 3rd game. Even with Tony's coaching and the crowd support, it was the JPN who took advantage and made less errors in the 3rd game, as Halim seemed to make really costly mistakes. With some support from the Philippines crowd who shouted "Let's go Miyuki", the younger and fitter JPN pair stormed their way and eventually closed the match. In the end, a disappointed crowd gave their last cheer to the 2 pairs who played their hearts out.
