    Again, Indonesia represented in 4 matches, but I doubt that they can bring the title home more than 2. The biggest opportunity come from Frans/Rendra, and probably Meiliana/Shendy. Andre will try to grab his first title this year, but Anand Chetan IMO is too strong for him.....Anyway, the results in Europe Tournaments are quite good. They can enter 3 consecutive final.
    For Frans/Rendra and Meiliana/Shendy, I think they must participate in SS, not only GP Gold or below...

    Anand is the forth Indian player that Andre has to play against in this tournament. He should be able to figure out the unique Indian style of play that stretched him in early rounds.

    If the game goes to 3 sets, Andre has a good chance to win.

    Based on the time-table, starting from 12:00pm local time (6pm HKG time).

    MIXED DOUBLES
    Joachim Fischer-Nielsen/Christinna Pedersen vs Fran Kurniawan/Shendy Puspa Irawati [3] -- this will be Fran/Shendy's last tourney before they are officially back to Pelatnas yet again. A first GP title will surely increase Ko Aryono and Richard Mainaky's confidence on the pair. However, I think the Danes have a slight edge. Let's see....

    WOMEN'S SINGLES
    Yao Jie
    [1] vs Linda Zechiri -- Yao to win in her home tourney!

    MEN'S SINGLES
    Andre Kurniawan Tedjono
    [3] vs Chetan Anand [6] -- yup...the 4th Indian player that Andre faces this week and I think Andre has an edge!

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES
    Lena Frier-Kristensen/Kamilla Rytter-Juhl
    vs Meiliana Jauhari/Shendy Puspa Irawati [2] -- the third Finals for Mel/Shendy....will this be the third time unlucky? The last these 2 pairs met, Mel/Shendy lost in rubber-sets, after losing the second set 22-24.

    MEN'S DOUBLES
    Fran Kurniawan/Rendra Wijaya
    [1] vs Rupesh Kumar/Thomas Sanave -- a repeat of last week's SF and I think Fran/Rendra can end their partnership with a title today! Rendra will be paired with Alvent Yulianto after he returns to Pelatnas, while Fran will be focussing on XD with Shendy.

    The Danes are in control, but, Fran/Shendy are staging a late comeback perhaps as they trail 16-19?
