Popov secured his spot at the Singapore Open quarterfinals and his next opponent will be Kunlavut Vitidsarn, the current number three in the world ranking. Will Christo Popov gather all his strengths and be able to defeat Vitidsarn for a spot in the semifinals?

The Englishmen advanced to the quarterfinals and their next opponents will be Liang Wei Keng and Wang Chang from China.
