    European Champs.

    Until the semifinals at least, all results will be pretty predictable... The Asian Championships are more interesting, I think.

    I agree Asian Champs are more interesting because they are somehow less predictable maybe, but also because the level is simply much better! :p

    This won't stop me from also following the European Champs though! :D

    Denmark clearly stand as favourites but this has nothing to do with Gade's form : whoever plays in men's singles (with or without Gade), the Danes MS are too good for any other team anyway.

    I think England or Netherlands can potentially beat Denmark if they manage well...
    (England by winning the three doubles, Netherlands by winning WS,WD and XD)

    So wait and see before you claim victory too soon! :p

    Hehe i know Denmark is going to win, Netherlands only got a chance in WS, and England dosnt have a chance of beating the world champions in MD, so i would say that Denmark are the winning team on monday.

    hey, don't be so arrogant! :(

    has no one ever taught you that the outcome of a match is never decided before the match is actually played and over?

    Clark/Robertson can beat any pair in the world on a good day, the dane WD have been quite crap lately and Robertson/Emms have been performing much better than the Danish pairs in XD recently...

    And for Netherlands, both dutch WS and WD clearly stand as favourites, and they are also capable of winning the XD on a good day, though this will be hard.

    In any case, for England or Netherlands to win, they aren't allowed any mistake (they can't lose any of the three matches that are winnable), so Denmark stays favourite but everything is still to be decided on the court!!!

    surely Dicky palyama got some degree of chance in MS too. He has beaten chen hong, and many other good players.

    Maybe Dicky can dispel the desire of Dane take all the MS top four.

    :p Dicky Palyama hasnt got any chance, he will play against Jonassen in semifinals and lose. Yes Dicky has beaten Chen Hong, but Chen is not in very good form lately.

    Yeah your right, anyone can get to the Korean open final. :D

    I wouldnt exactly say Jonassen has been on top of his game.

    guess you are right about Jonassen, but how about Gade, I would say Dicky should be happy if he got 10 points in 1 of the 2 sets. But it would be interesting to see a final between Dicky and Gade. But i dont think Dicky has got a chance of beating Gade.:p
