    agree with u. Haha... even though most of the female players can be called lady, but in our forum, the one who is being called lady is only lady Pi. :D We are not calling lady Zhang, lady Yao, lady Xie etc. :D

    I know most of the nick names but dont recall Pi HY's one cos I dont call her as 'lady Pi' or 'the lady'. She doesnt have the typical british lady air I guess.;)

    are everyone sleeping?

    Peter Gade vs. Shon Wan Ho.

    Gade scraped through 1st set 25-23, and trailing 6-15 on the 2nd... not looking very good for Gade.

    Scraped through? Looks like he led most of the way and now taking it easy in the second. Seem to recall that is now a part of his strategy as an old man ;)

    He did the same in Korea Open 2009 against LCW, and after the match clearly admitted that it was his strategy to rest in the 2nd.

    a general should never give away his intentions/strategy. the way to counter it then is to draw him into long rallies in the 2nd and don't let him rest.

    It was a close game, just by following the LiveScore

    .
    I went to the LiveScore for a quick look at the 3rd game between Ashton Chen and Stephan Wojcikiewicz. Never thought that I would be stuck there until that game/match finished.

    Why? Because it was a close game, just by following LiveScore.
    It was;
    0-all
    5-all
    6-all
    8-all
    9-all
    10-all
    11-all
    12-all
    13-all
    14-all
    16-all
    17-all
    before Ashton finished it off at 21-17.

    Time for me to get some sleep now. :):):)

    Seems like both players have preference on one side of the court as reflected by the graph. Peter was leading all the way before he switched his court side in the 3rd.

    I think PG needs to recall all his experience now to pull through. Not looking good here.

    17-17!

    the graph of the 3rd set is very similar to 1st set.

    PG leading, then SWH pulls closer. then they go up one by one.
