    So far, we haven't found any links for live-streaming for this tournament. Please post their links, if any BCers have found any.

    As for our BC PAW Scoring Points, Sandy is still working on them. I shall post the points here when Sandy has calculated them.

    MD:
    * Ko S.H./Yoo Y.S. [1]
    * Chai B./Guo Z.D. [3]

    The biggest chance for Ina surely by Towi/Lily followed by Simon and almost zero chance for Alvent/Hendra. Alvent/Hendra should let Kido/Hendra won cause they have bigger chance in Semis.... sigh

    MS SF
    Simon Santoso
    [5] vs Du Pengyu [4] - I hope Simon can beat Du. Time for him to beat a CHN player.

    MD SF
    Ko Sung Hyun/Yoo Yeon Seong
    [1] vs Hendra A. Gunawan/Alvent Yulianto Chandra [5] - 2 weeks ago, the INA pair lost in 3-sets. Can they exact their revenge? Ko/Yoo have an edge.

    XD SF
    Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir
    [1] vs Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam [4] - the INA pair beat the THA pair comfortably in the SEA Games Final. I hope for a repeat.

    Mohd Rijal/Debby Susanto vs Chen Hung-Ling/Cheng Wen-Hsing [2] - the last time these 2 pairs met, the INA pair lost in 2 tight-sets. Can they improve their performance and hopefully make an all-INA Final?

    I am not hoping for much, just 2 titles in Macau.

    Any chances of a w/o in the second WS semis tomorrow?

    ...and I give LHI the edge for beating HH tomorrow.

    Both Shao Chieh Cheng and Li Han have played a lot of games to get the Semi's.

    Li Han has played 10 games in 5 matches in 4 Days.

    Shao Chieh Cheng has played 8 Games in 3 Matches in 3 Days, the last two going to 3 sets.

    If tiredness plays a part I'm not sure who'd be the beneficiary, frankly I've no idea who's going to win this. My gues is that whoever does win will probably need earplugs for the finals ;).

    Their opponents are tough ones, but I would love to see Miss Bleach hair Shao Chieh, Miyuki/Satoko and one hit wonder Hafiz Hashim win! :D

    But on the same evidence would appear she is in immediate need of some Neem shampoo treatment? :D:p

    Regardless, and on a more serious note, I think she shold win this tournament in a pretty straightforward manner. Shriekers notwithstanding... I have not heard anyone put it better than Morten Frost when he said that she plays pure badminton.

    I believe Miyuki/Satoko and Hafiz Hashim can win. But I am not sure about Cheng Shao Chieh; she seems to be out of her top form lately.

    Gosh... If Simon retires, then Du Pengyu will get to the Finals with 2 walkovers given to him (QF & SF). And he would be fresh as a daisy at the Finals.
