    hard to pick my favorite. but surely Li Xuerui vs. Saina Nehwal is the most anticipated.

    if LXR wins, then it will surely seal her plane seat to London. as she will not only beat the strongest foreign opponent, but also will do it in a hostile crowd (that's my guess).

    however, if she loses, it will just prolong LYB's headache.

    Now that ZYL can focus on just WD for tomorrow, will we see an "upset" in the WD finals? WXL/YY know how to remorselessly target the weaker opponent once they have identified her, so it won't be easy.

    As for the WS finals, my money is still on LXR; her huge forte is her adaptability, and her ability to change tactics mid-game. She keeps showing new aspects to her game every tournament. But Saina has come here with renewed focus and in definitely better physical shape than she has been in a long, long time. I think it would all be down to who smashes better, and finds the sidelines better.

    MS FINAL
    Simon Santoso
    [7] vs Du Pengyu [8] - this will not be easy as Simon lost to Du twice in a row (albeit due to injury in the first defeat). Nevertheless, as an INA fan, I hope Simon can deliver the biggest title of his career today!

    XD FINAL
    Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam vs Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir [3] - after having beaten the 2nd seed in a titanic battle yesterday, this will be Towi/Butet's match to lose, especially after having beaten the same opponent in 2 other Finals (Swiss and India) in the past few months and also twice last year (SEA Games Final and Macau Open SF). The INA crowd have been waiting too long for an XD title (last title won by an INA pair was in 2005 by Nova/Butet).

    two finals in two weeks for Saina. I think she can't win here, Li Xuerui to win.

    For Tontowi/Liliyana, keep focus, keep focus, keep focus!!!!

    Du Peng Yu will give Simon a very hard time today. I think Simon is not as strong as Sony mentally, he might got frustrated.
    You need to be very sharp attacker to defeat DPY.

    WD is quite an interesting case.

    QT/ZYL's chance of winning a title (if ZYL doesn't need to play XD as well) is about the same as WXL/YY.

    Istora is indeed Saina's favourite place. Come on Saina!

    Since 1982 first edition, only 3 Chinese MS who can win INA Open title through Han Jian (1985), Yang Yang (1987) and Xiong Guobao (1989). Will Du PY be the 4th CHN MS to win title here in front of ferocious crowd? Let's see ;)

    I'll bet my money for LXR today :) quite confident that she will win today and go to LOG; it's WSX who will guard homebase. . . to retrain again on how to play real attacking games, how to SMASH PROPERLY :) Gone the days where defensive player can really shine in the top tiers. An amazing Li Xuerui with such long winning streak (since the early Jan 2012).

    INA singles players only turn up and play well during Euro and Olympic years?
