    2011 French Open SS: Semi-Finals Saturday 29-October

    Previously, I have given links for Live Streaming, but not all countries can share the links. Perhaps some BCers from different countries can post their links that are working for their regions.

    For our BC PAW Game;

    Towi/Butet face Chen Xu/Ma Jin. They have meet before, in SIN SS Towi/Butet beat them easily 21-14 21-10. Towi/Butet seems back in business again, beat all their opponents in 2 sets from first round. All the best in semifinal!

    For the matches on TV Court :

    MD - Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae over Mathias Boe/Cartsen Mogensen
    WS - Wang Xin over Porntip Buranaprasertsuk
    XD - Tontowi Ahmad/Lilyana Natsir over Xu Chen/Ma Jin (But we will never know, both pairs not consistent!)
    WD - Who else? :p Wang Xiaoli/Yu Yang 99.99% chance
    MS - Lee Chong Wei over Chen Long this time, although last week I predicted the opposite.

    Sadly, there will be no PAWW games for the semis, as all of the games are between different countries.

    The inconvenience to PAWWers is regretted, but we hope to make up for it at the Finals.

    .
    For a CHN-vs-CHN match, we try to read LYB's mind. :D:D:D

    But when a WO and/or 'no match' happens, the match is considered invalid.

    coming to a court near you...
    My takes:

    MS:
    • LD over KT: I'm afraid it's time for the big boys to play. The Code Red button has been pressed by the CBA and the biggest weapon has been fully activated.
    • LCW over CL: Why has LYB activated his biggest weapon (LD)? Because he doesn't feel CL can sustain his form to beat LCW a 3rd time.

    WS:
    • WX over Porntip: The way that WX rolled over Schenk was a thing of beauty. Too fast, too accurate, too creative. Like her country woman Rat, Porntip does take her overheads early and this might buy her a bit more time to dictate the pace.
    • TTY over LXR: This is such a hard one to gauge. Both are young and have star power written all over them. But one CHN player in the final is enough and I like TTY :p

    MD:
    • Fu/Cai over Hirata/Hashimoto: The Chinese are in a foul mood and will destroy all in their path to get an opportunity to get revenge on LYD/JJS.
    • JJS/LYD over BoMo: The Koreans are in irresistible form and will look forward to the final with their arch-rivals.

    WD:
    • WXL/YY over Fujii/Kakiiwa:
    Do fish swim?
    • TQ/ZYL over KMJ/HJE: Any team with HJE in it is doomed.:p

    XD:
    • Xu/Ma over Towi/Butet:
    I think MJ will win the front court battle with Butet and with that, the match.
    • JF/CP over ZN/ZYL: JF/CP are playing out of their minds at the moment. I haven't seen anything from the Chinese, even though they're seeded #1, to make me think they can beat the Danes.

    I will be happy if 7 out of 10 of my predictions are correct.

    Madbad, you used to score 10 out of 10 on SF day, if I remember correctly.

    2011 French Open SS: Who will move on to the Finals?

    .
    Some BCers asked me whom I think will move on to the Finals.

    I have only 2 guesses, namely;

    Mens Singles:
    * Lee Chong Wei [1] (MAS)

    Mixed Doubles:
    * Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir [3] (INA)
    .
