    That is almost like no upset, except the last one.

    I think Bae will upset WSX and Jiang will lose easily to WYH.

    Also, Ko/Yoo might upset CY/FHF.

    Korea home advantage.

    My guesses are usually only half correct; Therefore, you could be right.

    Yes. That's the home advantage for Lee Y.D./Ha J.E.

    But, yesterday, KOR scored 7 out of 7. ;););)

    Best performer of the day is Korea with 7 out 7 into the SF.
    Only 2 countries CHN and KOR in the 3 individual events, WS, WD and MD.

    You have left out LCW.

    LCW was the best performer of the day too - Allowing Malaysia with 1 out of 1 into the SF. :D:D:D

    Also not to forget Alexandr Nikolaenko/Valeri Sorokina's great win over He Hanbin/Bao Yixin, allowing Russia with 1 out of 1 into the SF too.

    As with every Korean Open, the standard of line judging is going to be interesting.

    Well, i hope you are right with MX and MS, while i hope to get a Korean WD (not likely though...) and Bae vs Wang Yihan in the WS... MD would be probably the Dream Final as well as MS, but I hope that Ko/Yoo can use their home-advantage.

    BTW did the youtube bwtv live stream worked with 480p? Thinking of waking up very early to catch the SFs live...

    As usual, LCW is Malaysia's 'Lone Ranger'.

    Also, we ought to congratulate;

    * Russia's Alexandr Nikolaenko/Valeri Sorokina
    * Denmark's Joachim Fischer Nielsen/Christinna Pedersen
    * Japan's Sho Sasaki

    Without these 4 players/pairs, the Semi-Finals could be an 'ALL CHN-vs-KOR' event.

    my prediction:

    Lin Dan vs. Lee Chong Wei
    Wang Yihan vs. Bae Youn Joo
    Lee Yong Dae / Jung Jae Sung vs. Cai Yun / Fu Haifeng
    (just these 3 events are already worth any priced ticket!)
    Joachim Fischer Neilsen / Christinna Pedersen vs. Lee Yong Dae / Ha Jung Eun
    Wang Xiaoli / Yu Yang vs. Tian Qing / Zhao Yunlei

    Well, I meant to ask, if the live stream worked good or not for Round of 16 and QF in reference to quality, steadiness and 480p vs 240p? (The uploads of QF and R16 worked great and the picture was quite good)
    Anyway I´ll get up early and if it is laggy I go to sleep again and watch the uploaded whole SF session via badmintonworldtv!

    youtube string was pretty good lately. it used to be pretty bad for 480p. but i didn't see any stuttering last night.

    480p is DVD quality, which is quite impressive quality given that it is live badminton.
