A few observations of my own: 1. The lighting this year was much better than previous years. In the past, the court was so bright such that I had a hard time watching. Now it is perfect (kinda like All England). The background is dark, so the players can perform better too (except for the flash photography). 2. Zhang Nan worst nightmare has come true. He didn't win anything AND he is injured. Fortunately, it is still early in the qualification cycle. 3. Viktor is a rising star. I think he will surpass the achievements of Peter Gade one day. BTW, Chinese Women's Singles is still in the doldrums. Will XXZ take over?
