    Vita/Lilyana rocks!! I'm afraid that Vita/Lilyana finally is the only INA WD pair to grab Olympic ticket. Before Beijing Games, there's Uber Cup where their contribution is very needed by team to get point.

    They will be lucky if they can get a medal. QF is expected...but...anything beyond that is a bonus.

    Before the Olympic deadline, we still have Indian Open GP Gold and the Asian Championship GP Gold. If Rani-Endang and Jo-Greysia do well enough, they can break into the top 16 thus ensuring Indonesia of another WD representative [max 2 Olympic tickets if pairs from that particular nation are in the top 16]... ;) Just look at the ranking accumulation differential. Not too far from the current world number 15 and 16... :)

    I will prefer PBSI to pick Jo/Grace over Rani/Endang.

    I would prefer Vita/Butet to concentrate in MX and secure gold there, rather than throwing themselves against China's great wall in WD.....

    Ah, me too. Choose Greysia-Jo! :) Richard Mainaky, their coach, said: Rani-Endang plays very well in practice, but terrible in real tournaments...

    In the latest rankings, Jo-Greys has overtaken Rani/Endang, 18th vs 19th respectively. If Jo-Greys do well enough in INdia Open and ABC, they should secure a second INA spot for WD...and yeah, I agree that Vita/Lilyana should concentrate on winning a gold medal in the XD event...

    It would be great for them to win a gold in XD, Yana/Nova have better chance, if they don't mess about ...

    In Indonesia, people call Liliyana: Lili... or her nickname Butet... ;) If we call her Yana, she probably will not hear us... :)
