    Finally! The Finals day!

    First, the links...
    LiveScore, and Order of Play and all that:
    http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...788D62-ABA6-4150-B826-14398518D729&d=20130113

    Time In Korea:
    http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=235

    PAW game:
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/for...1-Pick-A-Winner-(PAW)-180-Korea-Open-PSS-2013

    Quick takes:

    There will be two all-China matches, the WD and the XD.I'd like to see if MJ/TJ can knock out that other pair this time around.

    MoBo vs KoLee promises to be an intriguing battle. Mind-games and subtleties vs enthusiasm and testosterone.

    The WS title match holds huge promise for the local girl to take her first PSS title. Only, a veteran brawler is standing in the way... D

    The XD match is a replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay-of-a-replay...

    The MS finals will allow DPY an opportunity to prove that his China Open win over LCW was not an aberration.

    And finally, this observation: There hasn't been much bitching about the line calls this year!

    Some tough predictions to be made:

    Wang Xiaoli/Yu Yang over Ma Jin/Tang Jinhua (under usual circumstances)
    Mathias Boe/Cartsen Mogensen over Ko Sung Hyun/Lee Yong Dae
    Wang Shixian over Sung Ji Hyun
    Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei over Xu Chen/Ma Jin
    Lee Chong Wei over Du Pengyu

    Yup, KOR has chance to bag 2 titles here, hopefully no sad ending for them this time.
    Sung JH v Wang SX, rematch of 2010 final which won by the Chinese. Let's see whether the in-form Sung could take revenge in front of her homeground fans ;)
    Wang Shixian always cruise to KOR Open final in 4 consecutive years since 2010, looks like KOR is lucky land for her :D
    2010 : Wang SX v Sung JH, won
    2011 : Wang SX v Wang YH, lost
    2012 : Wang SX v Jiang YJ, won
    2013 : Wang SX v Sung JH, ??

    those were not tough predictions... i would have predicted the same, i'd say 8 to 2 in favour of each winner for each discipline :)

    Yu Yang kicks off proceedings on the final day, and her first serve is a good one.

    Yu Yang looking really tired. Wang Xiaoli adjusting by upping the quality of her placement and power on smashes, and they take the first game 21-17.

    Considering how new the Ma/Tang pairing is, they aren't doing bad against the WC.

    TJH is really a precious find - she'll be the WD mainstay in another 2-3 years, I'll bet. OG 2016 sure-shot.

    It's my first time seeing Ma Jin smashing three times in succession.

    Second Set: 21-13. Ma/Tang did a good job as well by keeping Yu Yang busy....:)

    while watching the WD prize presentation, Brandon said, "there is one man?"
