    Should be a good final.
    No players from the same country playing against each other, therefore no WO.
    The paying audience will get their monies worth.

    Looking forward for the MD final.

    The XD can be a classic final too, the SF between XC/MJ and Owi/Butet was a bit disappointing in terms of excitement. Yesterday I thought that would be the most exciting one.

    Interesting Matches in the Final:

    01) Mohamad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan(INA) v Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeon Seong (KOR).
    The world champion has h2h 3-0 to LYD/KSH. But, there are a lot of discussion that YYS is better compare to KSH. Last time the world champion lose to non-Indonesian pair was in the SF of All England Championship to LZL/QZH, can the Korean finally the first to beat the winning streak? Note: If MA/HS won the match,they will be the world #1 in the world ranking published after Denmark Open.

    NEXT WEEK MD WORLD RANKING:
    #1: MA/HS if they win the match or KSH/LYD. #2: KSH/LYD or MA/HS if they are the runner up in this Denmark Open.
    #3:MB/CM. #4:HE/KH. #5:LXL/QZH #6:KKK/TBH.Note: KKK/TBH is down one position to #6.

    02) Sung Ji Hyun(KOR) v Wang Yihan(CHN).
    The h2h is 7-1 for the Chinese, but SJH has proven that she is someone that should not be underestimated especially after beating CHN#2, WSX. The winner of this match will be the new world #4 in the world ranking published after Denmark open.

    NEXT WEEK WS WORLD RANKING: #1: LXR, #2: RI, #3:JS, #4: The winner of this match, #5: The runner up of this match, #6: SN, #7: WSX. Note: SN down from #4 to #6.

    03) Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei(CHN) v Tontowi Ahmad/Lilyana Natsir(INA).
    The world #1 v The new world #2 in next world ranking published. The h2h is 4-4, but the Indonesian pair won the last 3 encounter. The last time the Chinese pair won against the Indonesian pair was in 2011. ZZ/ZYL lost 1 set/game the whole tournament from the new married pair, Chris Adcock/Gabby White. On the other hand, TA/LN never lose the set/game coming to the final. Who will prevail?

    NEXT WEEK XD WORLD RANKING
    : #1: ZN/ZYL, #2:TA/LN, #3:XC/MJ, #4:JFN/CP

    04) Bao Yixin/Tang Jinhua v Christina Pedersen/Kamilla Rytter Juhl (DEN).
    BYX/TJH is the new chinese pair and they got WO by the compatriot #1 WXL/YY, Will it worth to give them a WO? CP/KRJ is the only Danish pair left at the home soil, can they deliver the happy ending for the home crowds?

    05) Lee Chong Wei (MAS) v Chen Long (CHN).
    The h2h is 7-6 for world #1, but the dragon CL has won the last two encounter. However, CL was never reach the semifinal since Djarum Indonesian Open, he lost to Tommy Sugiarto in R1. Lost to LD at world champ QF. Lost Kazuteru Kozai also at R1 in Japan Open. LCW on the other hand has been very consistent winning Japan Open SS. Who will win in the final? Lets see in the next few hours.

    Ratchanok Inthanon should have won her SF match against Wang Yihan but her inconsistency showed even though she led in the second game for a while. Her coach should instill in her the strong mentality to win and no doubt she will improve further as she has all the skills to match the Chinese or any other player for that matter.
    The new Korean pairing of LYD/YYS did better than expected to beat MB/CM (S2) and progress to the final where they will meet MA/HS (S1).
    The two late night matches affected LCW in his matches against JOJ and DPY where he lost in the first game to both but thankfully he was able to turn around and came out on top. The organizers should be more sensitive than to put a particular player to play last or almost last every evening. I am sure the Danes wouldn’t want any one of their players to play last every evening of a tournament. In this tournament, the Chinese benefit the most and should be fresher playing against their opponents.

    Good run from 2 Ina WC :)

    I think they can both win today, as I prefer Owi/Butet to face ZZ rather than JF/CP whom they never beat, coach Richard/Nova must seek the recipe how to beat the Danes

    as for Hendra/Ahsan they will struggle to cope with LYD new partnerstyle, but as soon they figure it out, hopefully the title is in their bag

    3 other final should be good too, is it possible Chn go titleless this time ??

    Agree, all 5 finals are interesting even WD match which usually is pretty boring ;)

    Yup, 2 titles may go to INA camp. The worst scenario may happen to CHN, failing in 4 finals.
    No Lin Dan and Wang/Yu this time as their winning chance are bigger than any opponent in every tournament, let's see and enjoy the finale :)

    Koreans thrashing Ahsan/Setiawan at their own game. To be fair though, Ahsan/Setiawan not playing their best since the world champs.

    Ahsan lost a lot of power in his smash. He should take the year off to recover.

    They were down 12-19 at one stage, which was when my comment was posted. Now they are behind 7-11 in the second set, and look very likely to go out in straights.

    As feared, the iNA pair is not in form and a defeat is kinda expected and coming too.

    The first defeat of Hendra/Ahsan to non-INA pair since the All-England 2012 SF defeat to Liu/Qiu.

    It was a good play by the Koreans!.They were generally in control of the whole match... having quite a good defense, less errors and consistent netplay. They did not really give the Indonesians a chance to settle into their game and play their usual aggressive style.
