things starts to heat up as we move into the elimination stage. here are some notable matches for Wednesday.
Lin Dan vs. Taufik - probably the most anticipated match for the day. replay of the 2004 Olympics final but now everyone is 8 years older. on paper LD should roll over Taufik but we never know.
no comments on any WD matches.
I should've missed this match! . I think you point WC final or AG final.
It's great to see JF/CP playing with such power and confidence! I'm rooting for them to go all the way!
LCW v/s Simon Santoso v2.0 promises to be a cracker! Simon has actually been clocked at more than 10 kmph in his last few matches, so that means LCW will have his hands full, dealing with devious Indonesian tricks!
Ratchanok taking on Juliane: I'm shuddering with anticipation!
But most of all, I want to know that CSC has made it safely and smoothly past Gu Juan, and the next, and the next, and the next...
First, all the best for Taufik Hidayat, Simon Santoso, Adrianti Firdasari, and Tontowi/Natsir! Aside from Tontowi/Natsir who on paper should roll on today, they are facing uphill task in the name of Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei and Wang Xin respectively.
Tontowi/Natsir has 1-1 head to head with this Fuchs/Michels with both of those encounters going rubber game. Tricky match but I believe INA will win this one and continue their journey to chase gold medal. SEMANGAT!
As for Taufik, there is no way but fighting with all what he has. May the force be with you man.
Same case with Firda who has already got her task done, she did what she need to do so far but the draw isn't kind for her. . But hey, four years ago Maria Kristin Yulianti also had Tine Rasmussen (now Baun) in her path. Everyday is a new day, they start from love each other. You go girl! Attachment 0
As for Simon, judging from his last match and LCW match, he has chance to pull an upset here.
