    I did watch they play against German pair last night . Quite positive approach of their playing style now. Both players are very focused and calm now. KKK no longer running all over the court to take the shots.Tan BH scrificed his power of smash with the speed of smash and he seen to be able to execute fast smash many times non stop this time ( just like FHF but not as powerful as FHF !). The caught the german pair off guard many times ! Pretty impressive result against the German pair. 21 - 7 and 21- 16. The German pair is quite strong after beatinmg Indonesia pair. They used to paly 3 sets against thsi german pair. Hopeful KKK/TBH can up the pace again tonight against the Korea pair.

    a tournament thread won't be fun without some predictions...

    firstly Men Single.

    LCW over Sho - no contest here
    LD over JOJ - i think LD is sick of all these match fixing himself. he wants to face LCW and beat him squarely. more quality sparring for LCW, but so be it.

    PG over SS - not convinced that SS has the stuff to beat PG. but who knows.
    CJ vs CL - this will likely happen after PG vs. SS and the result will be tweaked accordingly. nothing to indicate that these two will disobey team order.

    Women Single:

    RI over LX - i hope this will be on TV. i am supporting RI because it is hard to not support this cheerful young lady with a land of the smile attitude. but LX isn't going to give up without a fight. i hope this will be a close match.

    WX over YX - who is this qualifier who beat TB yesterday? i want to know, but i also believe she will lose to WX as well.

    LX (ops... i guess this will be LX(F)?) over Bae - Bae did well in previous UC, but that's about it.

    WYH over Petya - not much more to say here.

    Men Doubles:

    CY/FHF over Naoki / Shoji - yeah. i think so

    Ko/Yoo over KKK/TBH - KKK/TBH not only in poor form, but facing their bogeymen they will unlikely to advance.

    Kido / Setiawan over Bo/Mo - i just don't like the attitude of the BoMo pair.

    LYD/JJS over CB/GZD - at their form, LYD will roll over everyone but CY/FHF.

    Women Double

    all chinese will win plus one indian pair.

    that's all i am gonna say here.

    Mixed Double

    ZN/ZYL over CHL/CWH - though i like the Taiwanese pair too, the Chinese are just too strong for them. we will be treated to some impressive display of skill by CWH though.

    TL/KRJ over TJM/XH - the Danes have the edge here.

    JFN/CP over meneepong jongjit/savitree amitapai - i just have to type that one out. even the chinese have problem against JF/CP. i am afraid this thai pair will unlikely be able to make much of a dent.

    Chan Pend Soon / Goh Liu Ying over Songphon / Kunchala - wow. where did this MAS pair come from?!? took out WC runner up and XC/MJ in a roll. i want to see how they do against other stronger pairs.

    The schedule is already up you know (on TS). And I don't know who scheduled these matches but they are in the wrong line of work. RI vs LX is one that should at least be on the TV court. You can already pencil in the winner of all 5 matches scheduled for the TV session, what a joke? (of course the next thing you know they all turn out tight and exciting and the RI v LX a huge letdown )

    Why have you played in only ONE PAW game?

    With this type of logic, no wonder you don't play PAW

    Haven't see Tan/Koo for a while, hope they are back in the form to take out Ko/Yoo. They need to fully concentrate and focus on their games.

    .
    So far, all BC PAWers have picked Ko/Yoo to defeat Tan/Koo.

    Perhaps, I should adjust it to say Ko/Yoo 99%-vs-1% Tan/Koo.

    .
    PAW games are wonderful and i really enjoyed playing that one. but then in a way, PAW games are really about rational predictions. people want to make the correct prediction but not neccessarily what they hope to win with their heart. i personally not sure i would put RI over LXR for example, but i really like the young Thai with her good cheerful attitude, so i want to see her win. but i don't know if i would PAW her.

    furthermore, the format of PAW so far hasn't have much explanations nor discussions associated with it. that's why i think there is a reason for predictions of both types in the PAW threads and also in the daily tournament threads.

    anyway, i hope to play more PAW games in the future, these month or two has been really bad for me in terms of work stress. i am pretty much working whenever i have some free time.

    Yeah, it's very hard to predict
    Looking at the semifinal opponent, either Simon or PG, the Two Chens has high possibility to cruise into finale
