    It's QF for Men's Doubles and Women's Singles; and SF for Women's Doubles

    Morning Session
    10:00 WS QF3 Maria Kristin Yulianti vs Saina Nehwal -- If Maria plays like she did against Tine, I think she will progress to the SF.

    10:45 MD QF3 Tadashi Ohtsuka/Keita Masuda vs Lee Jae Jin/Hwang Ji Man -- both pairs created upsets in the previos round. The Korean pair to win!

    11:30 WS QF4 Pi Hongyan [5] vs Zhang Ning [2] -- on paper, Zhang Ning should take this one, but, she has been vulnerable recently. A 50-50 match with the Chinese having a slight edge.

    12:15 WD SF1 Satoko Suetsuna/Miyuki Maeda vs Lee Kyung Won/Lee Hyo Jung [4] -- the Korean pair has a slightly easier task now...and they should beat the Japanese pair.

    13:00 MD QF4 Howard Bach/Bob Malaythong vs Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun [2] -- Fu/Cai now have a clear route to the Final on Saturday.

    Night Session
    18:30 WS QF2 Lu Lan [3] vs Wong Mew Choo [8] -- a potentially thrilling match, with the Chinese player having the slight edge.

    19:15 MD QF2 Michal Logosz/Robert Mateusiak vs Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen -- the Danes are on a high and they should maintain their fine form.

    20:00 WS QF1 Xie Xingfang [1] vs Xu Huaiwen [7] -- also an interesting one to watch...with the Chinese gal to win it!

    20:45 WD SF2 Wei Yili/Zhang Yawen [3] vs Du Jing/Yu Yang [2] -- let's see...will it be both players playing all-out or team order? I suspect Wei/Zhang will be asked to win this one.

    21:30 MD QF1 Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan [1] vs Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong -- MATCH OF THE DAY...and it should be a cracking one. Koo/Tan have the slight edge and I hope Kido/Hendra prove me wrong!

    key test for saina. both have a chance to make it big in a big event.
    wud be interesting if this goes to 3 games.

    as for the rest hope the underdog's in all matches win. who wud have predicted an olympic s/f line up with Wong Mew Choo, Pi Hongyan, Xu Huaiwen & Saina Nehwal (if this happens ofcourse....)

    Really lookin foward to that MD match. Love K/H. They also get my prediction to win it. Though I think the first will go the other way, with K/H winning the last two.

    If Tadashi Ohtsuka and Keita Masuda could play like they did yesterday, they have a good chance for the gold medal. Day 5 will be interesting.:)

    I thought it was Firdasari the one who lost?
    Either way, this match is prolly going to be something like Maria vs TR but with less error from Sania. So it should be a close three set match with player with better mental to win. I hope Maria is not underestimating her young opponent.

    I think if Suetsuna/Maeda play like they did against Yang and Zhang they have a good chance to take it since their defense is so strong. They cannot rely on just defending like they normally do though. That and I absolutely hate Lee Kyung Won, she is totally obnoxious on court with her screaming and gamesmanship.
