    Honestly..I've predict the XD final would be end like this(instead of All Indonesian final)..I think personally it would be a battle of smartness between Lee Yong Dae vs Lilyana Natsir , and I'll put this match 50:50..
    But "The Joker Card" will be on nova's performance at back court..If he plays at the good level as he used to play with Lilyana..I think INA pair has the slight edge over Koreans..
    Of course I sill support Nova/Lilyana for their gold medal..following Kido/Hendra's footstep, winning WC and Olympic gold medal..AYOOO NOVA/BUTET..you can do it..INDONESIA BISA!!!

    Given Lee Yong Dae's brilliance at the net, it will be a very very tough match :eek:

    The key will be to slow the pace of the game down (something Flandy/Vita failed to do in the ending stage of set 3 when they led 14-10). Certainly, Liliyana Natsir needs to be at her best tomorrow night, facing LYD.

    The problem is LYD should not be at the net.

    I wonder how was Jonas/Lars of Denmark stopped Lee Yong Dae? INA XD pair must see the match recording from this match and learn how to beat them, I mean him (LYD) :p hehehe..eventhough it will be a tough game, I think XD and MD is bit different..when XD pair has a woman as it's playmaker, then the pair should have a clever way to win the games because of type of play and various tactical combinations..(see the example of Gao Ling and Ge Fei)..
    So, for me Nova/Butet has slight edge to win the match tomorrow..hopefully..;):cool::D

    I think it's 50-50, the Koreans look like they're in top form.

    KOR's game is very explosive as was seen on the first game against Limpele/Marissa yesterday. Very hard to predict on this one. In the end, I think it will come down on the experience and mental. So a slight upper hand for the INA team.

    I don't disagree with that, but i must say Lily's performance on the net lastnite wasn't really that impressive -atleast for her standard in my eyes, she must step up her game against the Korean today, pressuring the tall LHJ to move around diagonally in front of her side of the net by makin tight, cross netting shot consistently. She did wonder defensively though against the Chinese. On Nova, he must play his dropshot game better, so many unforced errors coming from that shot last nite, quite disappointing coming from such a world class player. Overallm, they should be able to play better today as long they don't let their nervousness gets the better of them.

    Kim Dong Moon, in the course of doing commentary for KBS, mentioned talking by phone to the players about their strategy before the women's doubles final. No doubt the same will happen today.

    The deciding factor is that LHJ needs to play with less unforced erros and Butet has to be superb @ the net.

    A close match.

    It is all dependant on LHJ, whether she is feeling confident. She usually gets frustrated after losing a few points, then she loses concentration which eventually costs her the match. I came to the conclusion after watching the WD gold medal match yesterday, LKW played well inspite having a leg injury, if they had not made so many errors, they would have had a chance of winning gold.
    But LYD is in good condition, he might be able to help LHJ with her problem.

    I am hoping for KOR to win.

    Well, INA XD's win over CHN wasn't convincing yesterday; could have gone CHN's way.LYD had his warm up match already so today he should be in super form. Plus he wants to make up for missing out on his MD gold.
