    Finally, We reach the semi final match. We have INA vs KOR and CHN vs MAS.

    My Prediction for INA vs KOR :

    1. Nova Widianto / Lilyana Natsir Vs Lee Yong Dae / Lee Hyo Jung - 50:50 match. Whoever win this match will have an edge to win the final ticket.

    2. Sony Dwi Kuncoro Vs Park Sung Hwan - 60:40 for Sony.

    3. Maria Kristin Yulianti Vs Hwang Hye Youn - Maria should win this to secure INA's position.

    4. Any INA's pair Vs Lee Hyo Jung / Lee Kyung Won - KOR to win this.

    5. Markis Kido / Hendra Setiawan Vs Lee Yong Dae / Jung Jae Sung - 50:50 match. Given that Lee Yong Dae has played in XD before, INA's pair has an edge. However, this match could be the tie breaker.

    Prediction for CHN vs MAS:

    1. He Hanbin / Yu Yang Vs Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari / Wong Pei Tty - CHN to take this.

    2. Lin Dan Vs Lee Chong Wei - 50:50 match. I could say that it will be the match of the day. :rolleyes:

    3. Wang Yihan Vs Wong Mew Choo - 55:45 for CHN. In my opinion, MAS should take this to secure their position.

    4. Cai Yun / Fu Hai Feng Vs Koo Kean Keat / Tan Boon Heong - 50:50 match.

    5. Du Jing / Yu Yang Vs Wong Pei Tty / Chin Eei Hui - 60:40 for CHN.

    It seems that CEH is injured, if CEH's not playing, NHL will replace her.

    And China may not field Yu Yang in both WD & XD.

    Malaysia will highly probably lose. Probably better if they can play in the final and lose instead of meeting China at this stage. If all our shuttlers play true to form, they can really give China a good run for their money and definitely a very interesting match up.

    Whatever it is, all the best and do your best.

    Samuel posted in May 15 thread, dont know where he heard it from. He heard that CEH & Indonesia's Maria injured from yesterday's matches. CEH very big chance not playing, Maria 50%.

    That would be my hope too. Oh yeah.. having kkk/tbh to prove them wrong and able to beat the Danes. It's a perfect semifinal for me. Sit back and relax, and enjoy the games. without too much pressure.

    INA vs KOR -- my predicted lineup:
    XD: Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir vs Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung -- this is an absolutely must-win match for INA. If INA loses this, its 90% certain that they will lose the tie. Based on this year's encounter, Nova/Butet have beaten Lee/Lee. So, INA fans better pray that it's the good side of Nova that shows up tomorrow, not the bad side. It will be a tense match!

    MS: Sony Dwi Kuncoro vs Park Sung Hwan -- likewise, INA must also be able to win this one. Both players are not in convincing forms lately. I hope Sony can win!

    MD: Hendra Setiawan/Mohd Ahsan vs Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae -- I am quite certain Coach Sigit Pamungkas will not risk Markis Kido's knee and will field the same pair that stole a set from Fu/Cai yesterday. The KOR pair has the edge.

    WS: Adriyanti Firdasari vs Hwang Hye Youn -- a crucial tie for both teams. If INA leads 2-1 at this stage, Firda will be under huge pressure to win the match. Likewise for Hwang, if the score is 1-2 or 2-1 to KOR. Based on rankings, the KOR pair has the edge.

    WD: Nitya Krishinda Maheswari/Greysia Polii vs Lee Kyung Won/Lee Hyo Jung -- I am pretty certain the tie will be over before this match is played. Either KOR or INA will have secured the wins to progress to the Final. However, if the score is 2-2, then KOR will have the edge in this tie.

    Overall, I think KOR will edge out INA 3-1 (if they win the XD) or 3-2.

    For INA to beat KOR, then, they need to win either 3-0 or 3-1, which is highly unlikely :eek:

    Note; I went to BWF site for checking the head to head. What a suprise (not at all) when the new site still not funtion 100%. Really, if BWF want badminton become very popular sport in the whole world, at least they can do is make a complete professional looking web site. Hired some top pro web design. They sure can afford it.

    Prediction:

    Indonesia: Korea will be very tough tough matches and I hope Indonesia will pull this off.

    XD: Nova/Lily are questionable when the face tough opponent in team events. If LYD/LHJ all out , they will win in three tight sets which I hope not.

    MS: Sonny also lack of focus in playing tough opponent in critical match in team event. The good news is PSH just came back after military service. So Sonny had an advantage here.

    WS: Seeing how Maria so tired in match against WYH and maybe had her injury back again, better to play Firdasari who is fit. This tie will become very important for Ina and Korea. 50:50

    MD: Indonesia will win this tie cause LYD probably a little tired and Markis/Kido usually can handle playing under pressure well.

    WD: If Indonesia only had 2-2 when they reach this match, Korea will win this fight no matter who Ina send. LKW/LHJ were too exprerience and Ina pair just did not had any attacking weapon to penetrate the KOrea pair.

    So if we want to win, we had to win 3-1 or 3-0.

    Looking pessimistic, eh??..or more realistic??..

    ..for XD, same can be said abt LHJ. Will it be "Mrs. Lee Hyde Jung" or "Dr. Lee Hyo Jekyll" showing up??..;)

    Other than the WD event, which is a clear advantage to the KORs, the rest of the 4 events could go either way, more or less...

    Btw, any prognostication for the MAS vs. CHN tie??..:confused:
