    CL is no more a unknown now........everybody know him,...so everybody are more aware when playing against him, so its more difficault to create upset anymore.......

    I think TH will be able to beat CL.......

    Its a tough one to call.. I think taufik is a "smarter" more experienced player, and I would put down my money on him as a favourite in this match. I think Taufik can adjust his tactics better and "read" CL better than CL can "read" Taufik.

    However as it is the first rounf if things starts going bad for taufik in the beginning, I think he could get "lazy" and throw the game..(blaming the effect of last weeeks intensive play :) )

    I'll put my PAW money on Taufik over Chen Long. His experience will see him through.

    Never seen CL's games, but if his standard of play is at least about CJ's, then TH should not be a hurdle for him...

    If this is the first time they meet each other, I am sure CL will have the advantage as TH does not understand well how CL plays. Remember in last year China Open, TH lost to DPY (a chinese youngster). That was their first time meeting each other too :)

    Yes, but TH has to be the favourite (if motivation etc is there).. I regard both Sony, Boonsak (in form) & Gade as better than CL (today), all beaten by TH in IO.. But CL of course improves :)

    I don't know..... saw the way he played against Bao in ABC and I must say I was impressed. But his lost to Hafiz in the India Open definately shows his inexperience. He hold the advantage but let it slip away.

    Taufik may have just edge out Gade twice recently but that was because he was motivated to push further than usual (prestige All England and his own country title). If it was something like ..........ahem Malaysia GP, I think Gade would have won.
