    Quite a number of interesting matches today (particularly in MD). Predicted winners in bold.

    MS ROUND OF 32 (with the next round also played today)
    Taufik Hidayat vs Lee Tsuen Tseng -- Taufik is regaining his form slowly...and I will be very surprised if he losses today.

    Ng Wei vs Sony Dwi Kuncoro -- the local player to win.

    Kenneth Jonassen vs Sairul Amar Ayob -- a tough but manageable match for the Danes.

    Krishnan Yogendran vs Boonsak Ponsana -- the Thai to progress for possibly another rematch with Chen Yu later today.

    Simon Santoso vs Lee Hyun Il -- it will be a major achievement if Simon can beat the Korean no 1 player.


    MD ROUND OF 16
    Gan Teik Chai/Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif vs Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan -- (MATCH OF THE ROUND) and I hope the Indonesian pair prevail! With the withdrawal of Jens Eriksen/Martin Lundgaard Hansen, the path to the final in the top half of the draw is wide open for both Pelatnas pairs to meet each other in the semi-final.

    Guo Zhendong/Xu Chen vs Luluk Hadiyanto/Alvent Yulianto -- Luluk/Alvent were once again pushed to 3 sets by the unknown English pair, while Guo/Xu also won after a deuce in the rubber set. Luluk/Alvent to win...but...at their current form, any pair can beat them!

    Keita Matsuda/Tadashi Ohtsuka vs Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah -- should be a breeze for the veteran Malaysian pair.

    Lee Jae Jin/Hwang Ji Man vs Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya -- a close candidate for match of the round...and the 2 pairs meet again after only 3 days. I think Tony/Candra will win yet again.

    Eng Hian/Rian Sukmawan vs Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun -- the Djarum pair won their first match against the Singaporean brothers yesterday and it will be a major upset if they can beat Fu/Cai.

    WS ROUND OF 16
    Zhang Ning vs Saina Nehwal -- a good experience for the Indian youngster.

    Xu Huaiwen vs Jiang Yanjiao (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- Jiang to win.

    Lee Yun Hwa vs Wang Chen -- the local player to progress.

    Wong Mew Choo vs Xie Xingfang -- unlucky for Wong to play Xie so early.

    WD ROUND OF 16
    Chien Yu-Chin/Cheng Wen-Hsing vs Satoko Suetsuna/Miyuki Maeda -- no problem for the Chinese Taipei pair.

    Jo Novita/Gresya Polii vs Gail Emms/Donna Kellogg (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- if Lita/Nathalia can beat Emms/Kellogg, I think Jo/Gresya can do the same. They are on a roll...and I hope they can reach the semi-final.

    Jiang Yanmei/Li Yujia vs Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen -- no problem for the Chinese pair.

    XD ROUND OF 16
    Nathan Robertson/Gail Emms vs He Hanbin/Yu Yang -- the English pair is still not in their top form, but, they should win today.

    Zheng Bo/Zhao Tingting vs Songpol Anukritayawan/Kunchala Voravichitchaikul -- the Chinese pair was stretched to 3 sets by an Indian pair with the score at 21-19 in the final set. The Thai no 2 pair should pose a threat.

    Hendri Saputra Kurniawan/Li Yujia vs Anthony Clark/Donna Kellogg -- a tough match for both pairs and I hope the Singaporean pair can win.

    Robert Blair/Natalie Munt vs Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- again, a tough match but Sudket/Saralee should win for another encounter with Nova/Butet in the QF tomorrow.

    Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir vs Robert Mateusiak/Nadiezda Kostiuczyk -- the Indonesian pair was once again stretched to 3 sets in the opening round by the Korean pair Hwang/Ha. They should have an easier task today before the tough battles resume tomorrow with possibly Sudket/Saralee, Xie/Zhang (their main threat) and Zhang/Gao or Robertson/Emms all waiting for them if they are to win back-to-back titles. I personally don't think they can win the title this week.

    Watched Gan and Zakry last night. I like them! They look hungry. Flanndy and Sigit didn't have any fire or really seem to want to win! So the young M'sians rolled out a straightforward win.

    A bit off topic..

    Hmm, Sigit just wants to go shopping, so does Flandy...hehe:p
    I don't think they really care if they'll win another title or not; they're just joining the trip for sparring purposes for the younger pair & playing to "kill time" til next yr, so no pressure..Besides, they're in Hong Kong!..:p ;)

    I agree! In fact, they have won the Singapore Open title this year and are not in contention for the WC. It's time for PBSI to promote Hendra Gunawan/Joko Riyadi to the main team. I thought they would play in Korea and Open, but, apparently, they are still being grounded at home. They are also not included in the Singapore Satelitte.

    Pelatnas No 2 Team is in full force for the Singapore Satelitte this week and probably JPGG Surabaya Satelitte next week. Time for Yoga/Yonathan or Frans/Rendra as well as Nitya/Nadya to win some titles. I hope to see some of their matches later this afternoon.

    Poor Simon. Guess the No 1 Korean player is still too much for him. Hope he gets going soon. We will need him in the near future.

    Good news of Sony beating Ng Wei. It will be an interesting match against Chen Hong. I hope Sony will win.

    19 year old Kashyap P of India through to the pre-quarter, as all other Indians lost.Kashyap bt Wacha Przemyslam (POL) - 17:21,22:20,21:13.
    Kashyap will now play Taufik in the pre-quarters, which will be a good experiance for the yongter.
