Alamsyah Yunus  vs Sony Dwi Kuncoro  - the in-form Sony to take the SF spot.
Chou Tien Chou  vs Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka  - Hayom should progress.
Porntip Buranaprasertsuk  vs Aprilia Yuswandari  - should be the end of the road for April.
Bellaetrix Manuputty  vs Sapsiree Taerattanachai  - the Thai girl to take this one.
Lindaweni Fanetri vs Eriko Hirose  - also a tough match for Linda and I believe the Japanese girl will win.
Yohanes Rendy Sugiarto/Afiat Yuris Wirawan vs Markis Kido/Alvent Yulianto Chandra  - the senior pair to win.
Markus Fernaldi Gideon/Agripinna Prima Rahmanto Putra  vs Muhd Ulinnuha/Ricky Karanda Suwardi  - battle of the top 2 back-up pairs and Ulin/Ricky have the edge due to their previous victory.
Vivian Hoo Kah Mun/Woon Khe Wei  vs Pia Zebadiah Bernadeth/Rizky Amelia Pradipta  - Pia/Rizky have fulfilled their seeding and it will be a small upset if they can beat the MAS pair, who's seeded higher.
Fran Kurniawan/Shendy Puspa Irawati  vs Riky Widianto/Richi Dili Puspita  - although I would like Riky/Richi to progress, I guess Fran/Shendy have the edge.
Thitipong Lapoe/Peeraya Munkitamorn  vs Markis Kido/Pia Zebadiah Bernadeth - Kido/Pia can actually win the XD title this week.

I expect something extreme from Ina coaches to mixing another lethal pairs whether in MD, wd, xd after OG
Maybe Hendra Setiawan/Gloria Widjaja

Pelatnas WD, like the other department, has not produced outstanding pairs yet despite having many talented players. They have good pairs but nothing that can consistently play well.
The non-pelatnas, Pia/Rizky is more consistent. I think they can win against MAS pair
Suci/Della is either inconsistent or the Thai players have improved a lot.

WS and WD have been INA's weakest departments. I don't think that can be changed for the next few years either, despite the optimism by some on Suci/Della and Nitya/Feinya.
I believe Ulin/Ricky and Riky/Richi will be retained in the post Munas Pelatnas team and they will be promoted to the first-team. These two pairs are the two stand-out pairs among the back-up pairs, having won IC titles this year (2 for Ulin/Ricky and 1 for Riky/Richi).
As for Markus/Agri, there have been calls to split them as they lack power. Yes, they are consistent but not good enough to be a real world class pair.
Rendy/Afiat, Gebby/Tiara, and Jenna/Komala should be split. I see no future in these pairs. As for Suci/Della and Irfan/Weni, I would wait till the end of the year to evaluate their performance. At least for Irfan/Weni, they have shown improvements this year and from this alone, they deserve to be given 1 more year.
Fran/Shendy is good enough to be a mediocre pair, i.e. top 20 at most like Rijal/Debby. Unless they can show that they can challenge the top CHN pairs, I reckon they should also be split and Fran to be paired with a younger player.
I would also like to see Tiara and Jenna in XD instead, partnering senior players like Rijal or Fran. Ditto for Gloria.

Look at the Thai girls who have emerged this year–Lam (WD) and Busanan (WS). What progress. I don't see this happening anytime soon with MAS or INA.
