only a handful of interesting matches on day 1.
Thomas Laybourn / Kamilla Rytter Juhl vs. Lee Yong Dae / Ha Jung Eun - pretty poor head to head for the defending Olympics mixed double champion Lee Yong Dae. unfortunately HJE is not yet in the same league as LHJ.
Chan Peng Soon / Goh Liu Ying vs. Chen Hung Ling / Cheng Wen Hsing - the Taiwanese pair have the definite h2h advantage, but GLY is always awesome to watch at the net despite losing bit of her sting in recent matches.
Koo Kien Keat / Tan Boon Heong vs. Naoki Kawamae / Shoji Sato - this will be a good match to gauge how much (if any) improvement the Malaysian pair has gained in the recent training.
Xu Chen / Ma Jin vs. Sudket Prapakamol / Saralee Thungthongkam - the Chinese pair definitely has the advantage, but given their age, this will be the Thai pair's last appearance in the Olympics. and Sudket is always incredible to watch and Saralee while much slower is always one of the smartest in the front of the net.

just looking at the schedule, there are only 3 courts being used, with 35-40 minutes assigned for each game, running from 8:30am to 8:30pm...
so it looks like there will again be some late 1am games...

The only tricky match for Ina team in day 1 is :
Bona/Ahsan v Bodin/Jonjit
Hopefully they already put in the 3rd gear cause Tha pair is very handful
I expect Taufik, Towi/Lily and Mel/Greys to win their matches.

I agree with kwun, those 4 matches will be very worth to watch...expect blood, sweat and tears

The Schedule of Matches for Day 1 has changed (since I posted it on 25-July-2012).
It is still the same link, but different matches are altered since I read them days ago.

I think today's matches are quite interesting because it will set up the rhythm of the next day matches.
All the best for Tontowi/Liliyana, Taufik Hidayat, Polii/Jauhari, and Ahsan/Bona.
