    All finalist according to seeding. It would be great if all top seeds wins. It would be very sad if all 2nd seeds wins.

    maybe that's what we call ideal finals. :)

    hoping for good watch tomorrow.

    apart from WS and XD, it would be nice if the 2nd seed can have victories tomorrow for the other 3. :D

    I am confused. In WD and MD, the 2nd seeds are stronger and won more titles than the 1st seeds. Why?

    just for any emotional reasons. :D

    good night, and have a good sleep so you'll have enough energy to support LCW and KKK/TBH tomorrow. :)

    Somehow I feel that LCW will lose tomorrow against CL... KT was near to steal a set. On the other hand LCW propably can engage another gear.
    If KKK/TBH can beat CY/FH, then tomorrow!! If they are motivated and push each other in a positive way I belive they can make it. Cai/Fu are still not in previous (Olympic) form, maybe Koo/Tan get their revenge ;)
    Xu/Ma could finally beat Zhang/Zhao, the latter struggle lately! So I think Zhao Yunlei will only get two runner-ups.

    Asian of Chinese origins are not very expressive. Don't think LCW nor the CHN players will. KKK/TBH maybe.

    I don't think this is the first time, but it certainly is a very very rare occasion. I am sure many gurus here know better.

    MS Lee Chong Wei vs Chen Long, Lee did not give his 100% in his journey to final because he knew he'd won anyway, it will be different if his opponent is LD or CL, so I give 55-45 in favour of LCW
    WS Wang Yihan vs Li Xuerui, it is the match between the two best WS player at the moment, the exhausted and not in her best condition WYH vs the fresher and new Queen in WS LXR, but WYH has more experience than LXR, so it's a 50-50 chance for both
    MD Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong vs Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng, it is the best time for KKK/TBH to beat the World and Olympic Champion, but I think it's still 50-50
    WD Tian Qing/Zhao Yunlei vs Wang Xiao Li/Yu Yang, WXL/YY will tell the world that they are still the best in this department, so 65-35 for them
    XD Xu Chen/Ma Jin vs Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei, it's 50-50


    However, just my opinion

    about LCW, quite agreed with u. to me he just used his previous match as part of his training. Get familiarize with the court, adjusting his shot and placement. He only start serious on 2nd set vs Kenichi Tago. By full speed and full swing couple with his usual smash at angle + net kill. Could see that KT is largely outnumbered in term of speed and he couldnt predict the direction of the ball either. It cause him pretty much trying to steal the movement and cut time by predicting where the ball goes instead of moving when the ball already hit. However LCW shot still not quite perfect as shown. KT is saved by the out ball, bad judgement by lcw etc.
