    It is indeed quite rare that Ina represent most of participants in SF

    The questions are :

    Can Mel/Greys got their revenge over Maeda/Suetsuna from last week ?

    Could it be a repeat of last week xd final between Ahmad/Tantowi and Fran/Pia ?
    From what I know, Tantowi confidence seems growing, but Songphon/Kuncahala definitely no easy meat.
    Fran/Pia are playing very solid over the last 2 weeks, but CPS/GLY must be itching to break the zero win over their h-h.

    This SF xd line up could also be the reflection of upcoming SEA GAMES.

    Alvent/Hendra continue to defy the odds by beating particularly difficult MD from Jpn, but Korean CGW/KYG should be ready for this.

    LCW seemed a little fatigued from what I saw yesterday, although he still managed to close out the match easily, in the second game it was mainly Brice's errors that contributed to that lop-sided scoreline. In the first game, when LCW was 16-17 down, he showed that he can still step up the pace to win 5 points in a row.

    Predictions:
    MS - LCW over Sasaki Sho - Might go to 3 games. LCW might get caught off guard by Sho Sasaki's offensive style but recovers in time to finish him. However, I wouldn't put it past Sho to cause a huge upset.
    WS - Bae Youn Joo over Wang Xin - WX's form might not be hot lately, but she is in the SF here after all.. and BYJ is very inconsistent, but I think BYJ has a chance today.
    MD - KKK/TBH over Bosch/Ridder - Bosch/Ridder are known as the giant killers in the first round of the Swiss Open where they defeated the WR#1. KKK/TBH should be wise not to underestimate them and with fighting spirit, I have no doubts that they will win.
    WD -Matsuo Shizuka/Naito Mami over Ying Luo/Yu Luo - CHN pair lacks experience.
    XD - Fran/Pia over CPS/GLY - INA pair has been very, very solid and honestly, I see almost zero chance that CPS/GLY will pull the rug from under the Indonesians unless they up their game to another level from last week.....

    Tantowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir are through to yet another Final appearance. 2 Finals and perhaps 2 titles in 2 weeks?
