    Concur with your predictions except:
    1. Can't see Zhang Ning losing. Pi Hongyan was her greatest rival for the title.
    2. I think Greysia/Vita will beat the Koreans, who are still somewhat vulnerable.

    50:50 between Koo KK/Tan BH v Candra/Tony. All else equal, the former are faster, and the latter more experienced.

    Then, on what basis you think Candra/Tony will lose? I think it is close to 50:50, and predictions will split right in the middle.

    People have their right to predict without having to give reasons.

    From the match schedule, I read it as one match being played at a time. ;) So, Astro should be showing all the matches.

    Yeah, I think they give priority to matches involving Europeans, hence for MD, they JE/MLH will play on the TV court.

    Bummer, a vast majority of badminton fans prefer the other match.

    Mmmm, you are right. One session starts at 2 pm. The other at 7 pm. So, all matches can be shown. Good.

    I think TG/CW will have a better chance of winning, for three main reasons:
    1) There is no MAS crowd voice like in MAS Open cheering KKK/TBH and distracting TG/CW.
    2) As TG/CW participate in more tournaments, the more they become "in-the-form"
    3) KKK/TBH are tired (physicallly and mentally) from AE final and all the games in SO, now it has been taking them 3 games to finish each match in SO. Especially the last one against Fu/Cai.

    Just my 2 cents

    Between you and Yong, I sure hope you're right.....I am really looking forward to see our pair in action again after having adrenalin rush watching them playing in All England.

    YOu're right, but I just curious maybe she has some detailed analysis done...not just gut feeling... you know what I mean? I don't have any prediction...so for you to ask me "on what basis I think Candra/Tony will lose" is ridiculous!

    According the Astro Programme Listing:

    Sun, 18 March 2007: 2am and 7pm.

    Too bad I'm in AU right now.

    Of course. No matter what, I will support fellow Malaysians. I will always hope that they win. But prediction is a different matter. You must try to detach yourself emotionally when you make predictions.
