Simon is injured??? He's becoming rather prone to injury now.

Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka  vs Chen Long  - it will be a sign of improvement if Hayom can even stretch Chen Long to 3-sets.
Hendra A. Gunawan/Alvent Yulianto Chandra  vs Sok Chantorn/Kanora Ngoun - should be a breeze for AG/Alvent.
Yohanes Rendy Sugiarto/Afiat Yuris Wirawan vs Fang Chieh Min/Lee Sheng Mu  - the TPE pair will take this.
Angga Pratama/Rian Agung Saputro vs Hirokatsu Hashimoto/Noriyasu Hirata  - this will be another titanic match. I hope the INA pair can repeat their victory in Sydney 2 weeks ago and improve the chance of Kido/Hendra of nailing the Final Olympic spot.
Vita Marissa/Nadya Melati vs Eom Hye Won/Jang Ye Na - I am quite surprised the INA pair won the first-round match. I still don't think they can progress to QF.
Irfan Fadhilah/Weni Anggraini vs Shoji Sato/Shizuka Matsuo  - Irfan/Weni received a free-pass to R16 after their Korean opponent retired in the first set. Sato/Matsuo to take this!
Lee Sheng Mu/Chien Yu Chin vs Mohd Rijal/Debby Susanto  - it's better for Rijal/Debby that the TPE pair beat He/Bao. Rijal/Debby have a chance of progressing to QF.
Fran Kurniawan/Shendy Puspa Irawati vs Xu Chen/Ma Jin  - a tough match for Fran/Shendy and I will be very surprised if they can beat the WR 2 CHN pair.

21-0, 21-0 for Fran/Shendy. Quite a record I should say.

Wang Lin continues her steady progress, overcoming another ROW rising star Sung JH. A firm though gradual comeback is preferable to a topsy-turvy one,in my opinion - she's got to watch it and not suffer any serious injury that has sidelined her for quite a long while.
A sad case in point is Simon Santoso, so injury-prone for such a talented player.

I don't supposed Lin Dan is taking this tourney seriously,only showing himself because it's held in China,otherwise he won't even be participating. Expect Chen Long and Chen Jin to fight it out for the title.
As for the WS, this title would mean more to WSX than anybody else as her OG spot is under threat from LXR, judging from the fact that only WYH and WX were "exempted" from playing in the upcoming last-OG-qualifying India SS, where it is possible that WSX and LXR may be competing to see which of the two gets the 3rd spot - lucky Lady Li, coming from out of the blue to within an outside chance of going to London. Based on ranking points alone,it's highly unlikely if not impossible for LXR to overtake WSX in 3rd position, so there is actually no need for WSX to play in the India SS. This will no doubt put tremendous pressure on WSX to perform, and to a not inconsiderable extent on LXR too, so much so that it may very well mentally affect both their play here and in the India SS, we shall see.

WSX has a point to prove and indeed it's a very strong and valid point to prove in India and this tournament. If Li Xuerui performs well and caught LYB's attention,even if LXR is fourth, he could just dropped WSX just like that with one command..Snap, Kapoot, WSX's Olympic dream is over..
I suspect there's a hidden agenda for WSX...she will hope Saina performs well or should they meet again, she could purposely lose to her so Li Xuerui gets demoted to the fifth spot.

LKH/GVS meeting Fang/Lee TPE's pair today. All the best for the MAS duo. I pray they dont pull a KKK/TBH stunt today. Even if they go down, please go down fighting.
Too many CHN walls for todays matches, as usual....Any upsets would be amazing!
