    an interesting semi finals minus the unfortunate withdrawal of Cai/Fu

    in brief, the probable situation or questions are:

    MS: Can LCW prevent it from being an all Chinese matters?
    WS: seniority does matter! (esp. in Oly qualification year)
    MD: most likely it's an all Korean matters
    WD: 99.9% it's an all Chinese matters
    XD: another gala is awaiting in final

    With Simon Santoso's good form, I am expecting him to make it to the Finals.

    The curse comes with a warranty too. Hope Simon already has his bags packed and air ticket ready

    Simon Santoso vs Chen Long [2] - with the victory over Peter Gade and an appearance at the SS Finals almost guaranteed (just need the confirmation), Simon will try to upset the second-seed.

    Wrong pact

    I am not sure Simon has the capability to create such upset as he has to keep pace with Chen Long, he can't sustain that pace. I also think Peter should have the pact with Simon instead of Taufik :D

    Suddenly the KOR pair throw away 6 points in a row...perhaps to give some face to their legendary Park :D
