    Well, I say this one going to be an interesting match. Chen Jin has the home crowd behind him, but WCH loves CHN Open, and can feel quite comfortable as well... :rolleyes:

    Im looking forward to tomorrows matches... I would love to see a rematch between lin and gade even if I think Lin will win in straight sets because of plying on homeground. Gade has proven very strongly that he is back and with his very close defeat to Lin last week and the only one troubling shoved us that he can win the big titles... Also look forward to see Bao-Lee. Lee is like day and night but lately he has been very strong.

    I am not anti-chinese but I just hope that there are no Chinese in the semifinal other than Lin Dan/Chen Hong.. I'm kinda fed up with Chinese domination.

    I dunno, but I jsut guess depends on which player they are talking to.
    For example, I guess Choong Tan Fook(fr. Ipoh) will speak Cantonese with Koo Kien Keat(fr. Ipoh), but speak Mandarin to Lee Chong Wei(fr. Penang), speak Malay to Hafiz, and English to Park Joo Bong.
