Quaterfinals at YONEX-SUNRISE Malaysia Open GP Gold 2012

At the Stadium Bandaraya Johor Bahru,

Today's start was 4pm. Court 1 (centre court) was the main highlight with the camera/video crew zooming in on the matches.

The main event began with Shinta Mulia Sari/Yao Lei (Singapore) v.s. Lee So Hee/Shin Seung Chan (Korea). The experienced Singaporean pair attacked with aplomb and won in straight sets 21-12, 21-17.

A total of six matches were played at centre court. The match that drew the loudest applause were the home stars, namely Lee Chong Wei and the pair of Koo/Tan.

Malaysia, Japan, Korea, Indonesia and Thailand fielded a lot of youngsters to blood them to gain tournament experience.

Tomorrow's match starts at 6pm.

There have been some controversy regarding the 2nd day of the game, e.g. The #1 seed Lee Chong Wei was forced to play one match early in the morning at 9am vs. Michael Fowke of Australia, followed by a game later at 7.40pm v.s. India's Sai Praneeth B.

The game was also postponed from 1st May (labour day) to 2nd of May 2012.
