Yonex Canada Open badminton 2011 updates

Results at the Yonex Canada Open badminton tournament that is currently being played at Richmond in British Columbia, Canada from 19-Jul-2011 to 24-Jul-2011, are more or less going on expected lines so far.

In the men's singles, top seed and world no.4 Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia and second seeded Marc Zwiebler of Germany, have cruised through to the quarter-finals.
Out of the top 8 seeds in the men's singles event of the Canada open, 7 have reached the quarter-finals, the only exception being the no.5 seed Frenchman Brice Leverdez who lost against the Japanese badminton player Kazumasa Sakai.

Indians Chetan Anand & RMV Guru Sai Dutt lost their way in the 3rd round, losing against seeded players. While former national badminton champion of India, Chetan lost against 4th seed Pablo Abian of Spain who defeated Chetan 21-17 12-21 21-10, the 3rd seed Wing Ki Wong of Hong Kong defeated Guru Sai Dutt 21-8 13-21 21-12.

Local hopes of Canadian badminton fans were dashed when 11th seeded Stefan Wojcikiewicz of Canada, their last remaining hope in the men's singles, was ousted in the 3rd round by Guatemala's top badminton player Kevin Cordon, who is seeded 8th in this tournament.

In the Women's singles event, top seed Shao Chieh Cheng of Taiwan, and second seeded Hongyan Pi of France have reached the quarterfinals.

Recent US Open champion Tzu Ying Tai of Taiwan who is earning the reputation of being a giant-killer has also booked a place in the quarters to set up a next round clash against unseeded Megumi Taruno of Japan. Megumi got the better of Japanese fellow player Shizuka Uchida to reach the quarter-finals of the Canada open badminton tournament.
