Wow, Cai/Fu versus Issara/Jongjit in round 1. Cai/Fu should win, but Issara/Jongjit have put them in trouble before... I think it will be an interesting match

That one is a 50-50 game..It's good to meet them before the Olympics so Cai-Fu can assess how good they are.
Indonesia Open is a trial tournament before the Olympics. Every Chinese player would want to meet top opponents to check out how good they are.
Lin Dan on the other hand doesn't want people to know how good he is

For the WS, in Wang Yihan's quadrant she is the clear favourite, don't see anyone able to prevent her from advancing to the semi-final.
In Li Xuerui's quadrant, she might encounter considerable resistance from Juliane Schenk who on her day is capable of troubling almost anyone,except that she (JS) has to keep P V Sindhu under her watchful eyes. Barring that, a LXR-WYH SF clash is a relishing prospect.
In Saina Nehwal's quadrant,she has a possible OG rival in Wang Shixian,seemingly the weakest of the top 4 CHN guns. I believe Saina has a slight edge to progress to the SF.
In Wang Xin's quadrant, a bit more tricky. Teammate Jiang YJ, Sung JH, Inthanon R, Bae YJ, even Chen SC and Carolina Marin are not unthinkable candidates to accidentally bundle out Wang Xin on her once-too-often off-days. Of course,on her day,Wang Xin will crush anyone of them to the semi-final, this is the probable outcome.
Theoretically, the two semi-finals I predict and hoped-for are LXR vs WYH and Saina/WSX vs WX/less likely JYJ et al. My Dream Amazons(or Amazonian) Final LXR vs WX !!

In the MS,it's harder to predict,the tournament is thrown wide open in the absence of Lin Dan and Lee CW. Whatever it is,I wish to see Chen Long in the final, his challenger can be anyone.
It seems to me Chen Long's half has the stronger lineup than Chen Jin's with the likes of Sho Sasaki, Lee Hyun Il, Simon Santoso, Shon Wan Ho demonstrably able to surprise based on their recent performances.
In Chen Jin's half,I won't say he's the frontrunner, J O Jorgensen, Kenichi Tago, Peter Gade and Taufik Hidayat are stumbling blocks - any of whom is equally a good semi-final or final prospect. I should also mention Sony Dwi Kuncoro who should safely navigate the qualification stage to join the aforementioned strong contenders.

Zhang/Zhao is playing Adcock/Bankier at Round 1. Should be interesting.
