    Well...I hate to see this match...I personally want one of them to win this IO.

    I guess this "All-Indonesian duel" will be very interesting...On one hand, Taufik wants to prove that he will create a new record of winning IO for the 7 times...on the other hand Sony has been improving a lot...Sony has a better record over Taufik in their head-to-head...If not mistaken, Sony vs TH: 4-2?

    If the way Taufik plays tomorrow is just like the way he played Bonsak...I am sure Sony will win....I am worried that as TH has played two consecutive rubber-sets, his stamina will drop....

    Yeah.. this will be an exciting match up. However i think Sony might rise up to the occasion.

    May the best man win...
    TH physical is questionable, though.
    However, I think Taufik will have a better chance in final against BCL.
    TH has better mental stength.
    But Sony also won against BCL in Swiss Open in a straight set this year.

    Taufik will beat Sony, then Gade will have the pleasure of beating Taufik twice in a roll in SouthEast Asia:cool::D:D:D... Why Gade??? Simply because Gade will beat Bao tomorrow and advance to the semi-finals:cool:... Why am I so sure? Don't you know that Bao is still not 100% recovered from his knee injury yet???:eek:

    Probably TH vs PG again... But I wouldn't mind if I turned out to be wrong either.

    TH vs PG for sure ... and this time round TH will win cos his mindset is stronger and PG solely relies on his experience and physical ... but he also played as many sets .... sooooooo my conclusion is that TH would win !!!!!
