    can you imagine how far they'd go if she knew how to serve?

    she doesn't suffer in the front from her bad serves... it's her partner at the back who needs to do as you suggest...

    The top 10 in the list all have chances, the top 4 favourites of CHN, INA and DEN, and the next 6 from TPE to GB.

    Not really, let her just do the flick and get ready for the booming reply - Harry Potter's wand can't do it all alone. Besides, Cheng Wen Shing does have a pretty good defence once she's ready.

    Laybourn and Juhl to win but they have to deal with the INA.

    Olympics somehow gives Indonesians extra luck to win.

    I like Juhl, but I do think her fellow countrywoman has a greater chance.

    The hardest poll for me to vote, all four have approximately equal chance of winning - rationality is of little help, I can blindly throw a dart to decide.

    Finally,I picked Fischer/Pedersen.

    hmmm this is a real tough one, I think I'm gonna have to go with the world number ones, but really there are so many dangerous pairs here that it's wide open.

    Ahmad/Natsir have shown some form of late but Ahmad always seems to have these little periods where he looks totally and utterly lost on court. They're happening with less frequency now but I'm not convinced enough to back this pair for the duration of this tournament.

    The danish pairs are bad news for any opposition and on their day can take anyone down, but the same can be said for a few other pairs such as the Thai's and the Tai's.

    As for the the Korean pair, does Jung Eun Ha still pout her way around court?

    I noticed this a few months back but Wen Hsing Cheng has updated her Tournament Software Profile picture, makes a change to see a player in 'casual' clothes.
