    Many interesting matches. My favourite is for sure Koo/Tan vs. Ko/Lee. With the slow shuttles we should see very long ralleys. I hope for a 3 set thriller ;)
    BoMo should progress to the Final, they seem pretty unstoppable at the moment.
    In form Fischer/Pedersen will challenge Zhang/Zhao once more. Could depend on how fit Christinna will be because she also plays the WD SF. I hope for a non-chinese MX Final.

    Court 1 (see below) will be covered by badmintonworld.tv http://www.youtube.com/user/bwf?feature=watch

    Though Sudket and Saralee have the talent to make it an interesting match, even if their chances of wining are slim.

    Yeah!! Sony gets on the TV court!
    Could be good match if SDK brings his A-game. But Du's stamina and near-impregnable defence is likely to foil Sony's chances.

    It will be interesting to see Wang/Yu play Jung/Kim again so soon after the Olympic incident. I bet both teams will give 110% this time. :)

    Zhang/Zhao had no answers to Joachim's power when they met in Dec. Let's see if Zhang/Zhao find a solution this time. No doubt they are the 2 best XD teams right now.

    If they don't play play, the chances of them beating Kor Duo is not absolute. It will be a good match. I hope KKK does not make too many unforced errors.

    If Sony arrives with his A-game, he's gonna be unstoppable - too quick and smooth for DPY to even get close to the shuttle! :D

    Thought the quality of WD is good, even Christina/Kamilla transform into lethal pair which capable upsetting Ma/Tang

    MJ/TJH not really a lethal pair compare to other chinese pair IMO... They do have an excellent frontcourt player but to me, its not really a dangerous pair.

    I disagree with you. Ma Jin is taking the higher ranked team to school right now. Remember this danish team won the SSF just a few weeks ago, beating Zhao/Tian.

    Ma Jin is the hidden gem of women's doubles badminton. She can neutralize the strengths of any opponent. Tang Jinhua is an upcoming player with great all-court abilities.

    Somehow I feel that Ma Jin's smash rate is too low, even for a front court player.
