Sela ???

The Lee match result only got posted 40 minutes ago, so I suspect Sela is still on court.

I suspect the Istomin result might be updated at the top of the hour (1000 CET), that seems to be when the website updates most results.

According to a web source, Seoul sunset is at ~5:30, so if they are not ready for night play, which is suggested by the OOP from yesterday, it might be easier to postpone, especially if they expect rain for the next hour or two.

A Babelfish mangled translation of a post on the Tennis Korea website suggests the rain is starting to subside. Maybe. Hard to say. Some Babelfish gems.

The 11:50, center court held in a Lee Hyung-taik (Samsung Securities) is still waiting for a state of the 2nd Round. 12 pm will be broadcast live by SBS-SPORTS games, but if you do not stop the rain will not be able to open.

Sorry, I'll quit posting if it helps the rain open. :p

Lee Hyung-taik of a game, I could open up the court and you will live to 4 pm.

Now a death threat. Wonderful. :rolleyes:

The upshot appears to be an actually half-decently translated sentence.

In the afternoon the rain had stopped, but weather forecasts continue to make singles and doubles schedule push it back to tomorrow, will be held in the indoor court.

I'm not certain if there should be an 'if' inserted in there, (ie. if weather forcasts continue...), but I assume there is.

If there are any Korean speakers here, perhaps they could do a better job with this link. (http://74.125.93.104/translate_c?hl=en&langpair=ko|en&u=http://www.tennis.co.kr/news/detail.asp%3Fcode%3D0%26serial%3D19228&usg=ALkJrhhH1qNnOjLNbWk0CqADWYGiuaTMSg) Though, if there are, I expect we would have already heard from them.

The site suggests it is "raining again in quarterfinal round". He also says that upon resumption at 2-2 he was at duece on Slanar's serve, broke for 3-2, then held from down 0-40 for 4-2, then breezed to the finish.

The real problem is that without lights, they may not be able to resume if two or three more hours pass without the rain stopping. I wonder if they'd try for a super Sunday, or move it indoors?

it seems they don't want to move the singles matches to indoors in no case :smash:

at least I hope that the Thai Twins can play today. I think playing at indoors should favor them.

Lee was originally scheduled 25 days in the first game of the semi-finals will be the end of follow-up, but as unseasonal rain from all 12 games was stopped.

In the current year to win the first game, the flea, man sijangbae minareu (Czech Republic) 6-1 3-3 to the Dana woodomchoke (Thailand) is the lead.

As soon as I finish this game, Lee - will be held before the ruyensun.

Assuming the rain still on, gosh! :( No report from the site on how's the weather going on.

They are apparently back on, starting at 4PM Seoul time.
From Udomchoke's site:


today i play semi final round and it is very tough day for me because it is very cold outside and very windy so i had a very slow start then i lost easy first set 6-1 but second set i had a good start and broke him second game to lead 2-0 but he played another good game to broke me back and we held serve until 3-3 then it was rain so we had to stop for 3 hours then we start again at 4pm and when we came out i had to serve and i got broke by him in the first game because it is sooo cold then i couldnt break him back. so finally i lost score 1-6,4-6 kup...

So Minar 6:1 6:4.

Lu Yanxun 16 of the tournament so far before. South Korea today, the temperature plummeted to as low as five degrees, the wind is very strong, even in the presence of Lu Yanxun to watch college coaches, to shake the cold

As a Canadian, I think I 'm actually bound by the Constitution to mention that 5ºC is just barely on the lower edge of temperature for wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

I've always loved the idea of Canada taking a Davis Cup tie in February against, like, Mexico or Brazil outside in Toronto or Montreal, at around -3 degrees or so. Sure, all players would hate it, but ours would hate it less :)

But now I have lost the point, which is how a tournament in a country where I can probably watch streaming Starcraft matches can't even tell us a score for the first set of a match that is surely got at least that far. :rolleyes: :mad:

I have no idea what the score is supposed to be, loks like a retirement, but Lee is through.

The pride of tennis Republic of Korea Lee Hyung-taik (Samsung Securities) finally reached the final in 7 games, and the triumph.

October 25 at the Seoul Olympic Park tennis court at the 2008 International Men's Challenger jeunggwonbae 65 in the rankings of the world's Lee Hyung-taik 6-3, 1-0 victory against the right ruyensuneul final.

Suddenly, his foot caught in the middle of a set of Lou 2 abstentions, which was to make it easy to finish the game.
