Badminton World Championship 2007-KL

Wow.. Exciting Exciting Exciting.. Since Monday I started watching Badminton World Championship.. This is the 3rd day of the competition. I cannot imagine that I will be watching at least 10 to 12 hours per day of badminton on Astro.. There were many upsets.. But i will only talk about today's matches since this morning.. There were good results and disappointing results for Malaysia. There were surprises. Those who are not expected to do well is playing well, those who is supposed to win, lost the match. This morning the Malaysia won both matches played. Then is the evening matches, Lee Chong Wei the second seeded lost to Sony from Indonesia. It was a disappointing match where Lee Chong Wei lost 21-11 and 21-9.. Then there were a surprise for the Malaysian supporters where Wong Mew Choo won her game. She was playing with Xie Xingfang from China, who is the second seed. Surprisingly Wong Mew Choo upset the odds and won her game in straight game . She won 21-10 and 21-8. After a good results for Malaysia, another mens single player lost the match. Hafiz lost to Anup from India. Anup won Taufik from Indonesia yesterday and he again won his match against Hafiz today. Hafiz lost 21-19 18-21 21-15.. Therefore, there will not be a Malaysia representative for the mens single. Now am watching Malaysia double player playing while updating the results for those who did not get to watch..

The other country matches were also great, but since am a Malaysian, I will only blog about Malaysia Matches.. LOL.. I cant be blogging for every country right.. LOL..

Unfortunately, i cant watch for 2 days since am going down to KL tomorrow.. Sob sob.. But i still get to watch the finals.. Will update the score after the match.. See you guys later!!!

Updated results!!!

Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong beat Michal Logosz and Robert Mateusiak from Poland
21-17 and 21-19

Therefore, Malaysia have 1 representative for womens single, 1 womens double and 2 mens doubles. There are no representative for mens singles has 2 Malaysian Players lost their matches today. No mixed doubles also has the players who upset the Germany players yesterday could not upset the players from China..

Let's hope those who are in the quarter finals win their matches tomorrow.. and go in to the semi finals.. Good Luck!!!
