IMHO, Chris Adcock is turning to be a solid player recently. We shall see if Robert Blair will continue to partner him in the LR. Yup...this ENG pair also forced the Korean duo to rubber-set, quite surprising I would say. Likewise, Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen have seriously become DEN's most feared pair as they still have many years in them (compared to Paaske/Rasmussen). As predicted, all the top pairs will have their moments of glory as it's difficult to expect them to win tournaments after tournaments. There will be the odd moments where they lost in a shocking way to some lower-ranked pairs. So, expect more surprises come next year and hopefully the emergence of more pairs in MD. My picks of the young MDs: Kwon Yi Goo/Ko Sung Hyun, Cho Gun Woo/Yoo Yeon Seong, Wifqi Windarto/Afiat Yuris Wirawan. These 3 pairs have shown interesting progressing and have started to beat some veteran pairs. As for the WR#1, it might be rotated among several pairs. Remember, Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae have lots of points to defend from the German Open, All-England, Swiss, and Thomas Cup. Likewise, Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan also have to defend points from the MAS Open, Olympics, and the 3 SS titles they won in China Masters, Denmark and French Opens. I will not be surprised if some other pairs can take the no 1 position as well.
