    My pick :

    MD - 50/50. Rooting for KOR
    WD - CHN. Don't think KOR will be able to repeat the feat of beating 2 CHN pair consecutively.
    MS - 70/30 CHN - Let's be realistic, based on current form. Hope to be wrong.
    WS - Unable to pick.
    XD - 65/35 CHN. KOR players will be tired from their earlier matches.

    This is my take:

    MD -50/50... LYD/JJS is in better form recently... but CaiYun was very determined yesterday against Ko/Yoo... Rare to see CY that determined..
    WD - 60/40 [China]... Normally, I think Zhao/Tien has a 80/20 advantage... But crowd rooting for Korea would tip the balance slightly...
    MS - 70/30 [China]... LCW is not in good shape recently... there is no denying of it. But if we pray hard, we might get a repeat of WC2011 final.... Let's us pray now!!
    WS - 50/50... Based on H2H, JYJ is better... but it's olympics year, so WXH will go all out..
    XD - 50/50.. this is a tough one for me... I haven't seen enough LYD/HJE to say who will win on this very interesting match...

    Chong Wei needs help urgently

    Is hard not to pick Lin Dan to win against Chong Wei again based on head to head record. Chong Wei should take himself as underdog, even though he's world #1, and throw different tactics at Lin Dan and see which one stick as the "usual" strategy has proven ineffective from the past few encounters.
    That's where the coaches become important providing guidance unfortunately what we have is just non-existence, I am quite frustrated why BAM still doesn't show urgency helping Chong Wei in that department, Chong Wei is the only one that can capture the first ever Olympic gold for the nation, why the hesitation?(How many resources we've on KKK/TBH)
    How can you boost Chong Wei confidence when he faces Lin Dan in critical stage if everything stay the same while Chong Wei continues to pile up his losing records? Please contact someone in Denmark as I do believe Frost has the solution and please, really not much time left!(Why BAM & Misbun still playing games is also beyond me :mad:)
    If I were Chong Wei, I would secretly call Li Mao and ask for some pointers ...

    here are my predictions:

    Lin Dan beat Lee Chong Wei
    Jiang Yanjiao beat Wang Shixian
    Lee Yong Dae / Jung Jae Sung beat Cai Yun / Fu Haifeng
    Ha Jung Eun / Kim Min Jung beat Tian Qing / Zhao Yunlei
    Chen Xu / Ma Jin beat Lee Yong Dae / Ha Jung Eun

    Chris will most likely lose his PAW.
    He is going against LYB's wishes. And anyone who does so is doomed to failure.
