    I think Malaysia verse Malaysia in the double. They did not want to take it live.

    Men's Singles
    Lee Chong Wei
    [1] vs Taufik Hidayat [5] -- Lee has the upper-hand, but, Taufik has won the 2 previous encounters. He might yet surprise us again.

    Peter Gade [4] vs Sony Dwi Kuncoro [2] -- a year-end title in KK will cap quite a good year for Sony, despite his injury.

    Men's Doubles
    Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae
    [3] vs Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan [1] -- form-wise, the Korean has an advantage, so, they could probably take this match. However, I hope Kido/Hendra prove me wrong, after yesterday's surprising third-set reversal of fortune.

    Women's Doubles
    Vita Marissa/Liliyana Natsir
    [2] vs Jo Novita/Greysia Polii [7] -- Jo/Grace will be happy to head home with US$5k each, while Vita/Butet are aiming for the title after the revenge against Ha/Kim.

    Mixed Doubles
    Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir [1] vs Anthony Clark/Donna Kellogg [4] -- everytime these 2 pairs meet, I have a feeling the INA pair will lose. Somehow, the ENG pair (esp Anthony Clark) always plays well against INA pairs this year (losing only once in the Singapore SS Final if I am not wrong). So, advantage to ENG. However, again, I hope Nova/Butet prove me wrong.

    Sudket/Saralee went to semifinal after long meetings ( 2 meetings)..they did it to avoid Clark/Kellog...but Referee forgot the rule 16.5...Referee admiteed he was wroing and gave wrong advise to Thai Pairs...it happened after Clark/Kerllog finished the match...Clark complained also as he did not want to play Nova/Butet in semi..also Nova/Butet prefers to play Laybourn/Juhl...haha...

    So, did the Thai pair stop the game in purpose and make an injuries as the excuse in order to avoid Clark/Kellog?? Woow.. that's just show that they are not supportive. If they are injured, they should just give up the runner up of the group to Flavi..

    11-7 for vita butet.. I think second set would be easier for Vita Butet to take.
