WS : Hwang Hye Youn lost from Wong Mew Choo 10-21, 21-17, 17-21
WD : Lee KW/Lee HJ Wong 21-8, 21-15
Another tight matches in the ‘hell group’. Malaysia seems so strong in singles but missed their doubles. But new collaboration, Koo Kien Keat/Wong Pei Tty can’t be under estimate by the gold medalist Olympic 2008, Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung. They’re almost lost but lucky to help them back on the third set. The Korea took advantages for their junior player, Jang Young Soo to fight against world #1, Lee Choong Wei and let Park Sung Hwan takes some rest.

XD : Nova/Liliyana bt Shintaro Ikeda/Reiko Shiota 16-21, 21-14, 21-18
The bronze medalist Olympic 2008, Maria Kristin seems not at her best performance on yesterday match. She almost lost on the third set after thrilling behind 12-17. But with her experience, Maria luckily manage to 16-17 and 19-all before won the match 21-19. Without Vita Marissa in Indonesia team, WD should be the weakest sector. Melly/Shendy has won against Kumiko Ogura/Reiko Shiota at Indonesia Open last year but now their lost from Satoko/Miyuki, semifinalist Olympic 2008. And once again two collaboration pair, Shintaro Ikeda (partnering with Shuichi Sakamato in MD) and Reiko Shiota surprisingly gave some shock therapy to the #1 world pair, Nova/Liliyana.

WD : Kamilla Rytter Juhl/Lena Frier Kristiansen lost from Zhou Mi/Wang Chen 15-21, 21-13, 18-21
Really tight match. With two ex-Chinese players (Zhou Mi & Wang Chen), Hongkong ruled over the Danish girl. Zhou now has her chance to fight for Hongkong after missed her Uber Cup for this country last year. Once again, ‘suprising’ pair beat the existing pair.
1B : China vs England 5-0
MD : Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun bt Robert Blair/Christopher Adcock 21-15, 21-14
WS : Wang Lin bt Sarah Walker 21-15, 21-11

WD : Zhang Yawen/Pan Pan bt Gabrielle White/Jennifer Wallwork 21-12, 21-11
XD : He Hanbin/Yu Yang bt Anthony Clark/Donna Kellogg 21-14, 21-14
Can’t denied that Chinese lady still the strong team even not with their real partner (Zhang Yawen and Pan Pan). But it seems that England not playing with their full team. Without Nathan Robertson and Elizabeth Cann, it looks unbalanced. Every match approximately just need 30 minutes. So easy for ‘the great wall’. But Indonesia should be ready for England’s plan today. Two years ago, they’re almost beat Indonesia 3-2.
