The intensity escalated as several seeded shuttlers tumbled yesterday. Three of top 8 MS failed to go further, Son Wan Ho (3rd seed), Srikanth (4th) and Vittinghus (7th). Two Chinese leading men, Chen Long and Lin Dan were forced to work extra hard to clear their first hurdle and while Danish #1 Jorgensen sailed to R/16 without too much problem. WS, all top-8 seeds prevailed, Wang Yihan and current WC Carolina Marin needed rubber games to eliminate Japanese rising star Okuhara and Irish Chloe Magee respectively. Nothing extraordinary happened in this category so far, minor upset was created by GER Karin Schnaase who eliminated Liu Xin. MD, biggest shock headline of R/32 as hot-fave Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeon Seon was out very early by German GP Gold winner, Mads Conrad/Mads Pieler Kolding in straight sets. Also Indian combo Attri/Reddy who disposed Dubai SS Finals runner-up Chai Biao/Hong Wei. WD, China scratch pair of Tang Jinhua/Zhong Qianxin ousted second seed Matsutomo/Takahashi who also lost early in GER GP Gold last week. Another setback that INA combo Bernadeth/Pradipta lost to USA pair Lee/Obanana. China still dominates to field 5 pairs in last sixteen. XD, lackluster performance by third seed Xu Chen/Ma Jin, semifinalist of last year edition. Darkhorse home hero The Adcocks plus three faves have bright prospect to cruise into last eight. China has guaranteed quarterfinal berth through Lu K/Huang YQ v Liu C/Bao YX.
