With the main event underway all of the Welsh hopefuls were out in force looking to progress to the latter stages of the tournament. A day filled with upsets as seeds fell at the first hurdle and Wales had casualties all of the disciplines, however, the performance of the day must go to Daniel Font in his 1st round Men's Singles match against 8th seed Jamie Bonsel of England. The young Welsh shuttler stole the show taking the 8th seed to 3 sets winning a tough deciding set 21-18.
