    But another tough challenge awaits her. It's TINA who's facing her last tournament. Can't wait to see how well LINDAWENI can hold her consistent performance. The best for LINDAWENI :D

    In the last 2 years, Linda has improved her game by leaps and bounds, especially on the mental side. I've always enjoyed her style of play but she let a lack of confidence get to her. This is the Linda that can make the jump to the next tier of players, and I am happy for her. :)

    I really have high expectations over AHSAN/SETIAWAN to win MD title after the last time CANDRA/SIGIT did it back in 2003.

    Also INA still have 4 pairs for XD. Let's hope one of them can repeat last year achievement.

    XD INA has a hope for all INA SF counter, but I think its not possible even if all INA final would be consider a big achievement.... XD clash QF at the AE is very competitive between XD WR No.1 to No.12. No one outside WR No.12 is left at the draw.

    I agree.... I remember when it was only Tontowi/Butet left at the QF of some super series... Pretty disappointing back then...

    Indeed it is. I almost forgot INA still has TOMMY for MS :p

    But being realistic, MD and XD are INA biggest chance to grab a title. XU/MA and ZHANG/ZHAO will like gonna kill each other at SF, so we will have a bigger chance if TONTOWI/NATSIR can make it to Final.

    Am I the only one annoyed with Anthony Clark as commentator? Watching the MD match (BoMo vs Liu/Qiu) and it really seems like he has no clue about World Badminton....said BoMo have problems against very quick pairs, and then citing Adcock/Ellis as an example -.-
    What the hell, BoMo won against Jung/Lee at the Olympics and against many of the quick Asian pairs - all of whom are in a whole other league than Adcock/Ellis. Damn British and their National pride! [Gail Emms was the same. No idea of how their MD teams really compare to the Top 10.]

    Malaysia's top men's doubles and mixed doubles pairs of KKK/TBH and CPS/GLY were sent packing in straight games by unseeded pairs from Thailand and Indonesia.
    What's wrong with them with all the hype heaped on them by their coaches?
    Thankfully two other men's pairs and the women's pair of VH/WKW kept the Malaysian flag flying.
    VH/WKW (U) upset the form book by beating EHW/JYN (S4). Hopefully they will continue to progress.
