Indonesia Open 2006 QUARTER-FINAL (02/06)
Okay guys...here's the lineups. I will be flying back to SG in the morning, so, hope to meet up with Loh, Ants and other BFers.
Chen Yu vs Eric Pang
Taufik Hidayat vs Kenneth Jonassen -- a repeat of the WC quarter-final match. Taufik is a slow starter and he needs to play at his best to beat Kenneth. We have seen the fighting spirit of Kenneth...he just never gives up. A tough tie for both players
Simon Santoso vs Bao Chunlai -- it will be a major upset if Simon can beat Bao. He's definitely improving a lot this year with wins over Park Sung Hwan and now Boonsak Ponsana in his belt. However, I still think Bao is a class above him.
Qiu Yanbo vs Lee Hyun Il
Chen Li vs Jun Jae Yun
Kanako Yonekura vs Zhu Lin -- I hope the Japanese can win.
Petya Nedelcheva vs Pi Hongyan
Lu Lan vs Xu Huaiwen (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- the young Chinese could win.
Luluk Hadiyanto/Alvent Yulianto vs Tri Kusharyanto/Rony Agustinus -- Luluk/Alvent shouldn't have a problem beating the non-Pelatnas pair.
Zheng Bo/Gong Weijie vs Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya -- a tricky test for the experienced pair, but, I think they will win.
Thomas Laybourn/Lars Paaske vs Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae -- youth will prevail.
Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan vs Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari/Lin Woon Fui (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- the defending champion has beaten the young Malaysian pair before. They should do it once more.
Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen vs Satoko Suetsuna/Miyuki Maeda
Zhang Dan/Zhao Tingting vs Jo Novita/Greysia Polii (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- so far so good for the Indo pair, but, the Chinese will present a stiff test. I expect them to lose....
Saralee Thoungthongkam/Sathinee Chankrachangwong vs Nitya Krishinda/Nadya Melati -- the young Pelatnas pair has done well to reach the quarter-final and should present a tough test for the more experienced Thai pair. It could go into 3 sets...
Wei Yili/Zhang Yawen vs Lee Kyung Won/Lee Hyo Jung -- another candidate for match of the round. Lee/Lee has been rather erratic lately esp when they were beaten by Chien/Cheng in the Uber Cup. I expect the Chinese pair to win.
Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir vs Zheng Bo/Zhao Tingting (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- the Chinese has beaten the defending champion once. Any match against Chinese pair is always tough....a real test of Nova/Butet's credential. I hope they could win.
Lee Jae Jin/Lee Hyo Jung vs Songphon Anukritayawon/Kunchala Vorawichitchaikul -- Lee/Lee should progress
He Hanbin/Zhang Dan vs Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam -
Chen Hung Ling/Chou Chia-Chi vs Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen -- the Chinese Taipei pair has surprisingly beaten 2 Indonesian pairs en-route to the quarter-final. However, Xie/Zhang should beat them with ease.

I haven't been following the results. It's nice to see Jun Jae Youn on her way back to top form.
Tony/Candra. Well, what can be said about them that hasn't already been said many times before.
BTW, what happened to Sigit/Flandy? I suppose they lost in an earlier round, then? And the same for Candra and his sister?

I must say Chen Yu, Eric Pang and Simon have done very well in the MS to reach this far and to have beaten very experienced and highly ranked players.
In the semis, Chen will very likely beat Eric, Taufik will find Kenneth very difficult to beat despite the home support, but Simon has more than equal chance to dismantle Bao, I think. Simon has all too often been criticized as Indonesia's weak link and now is the chance for him to prove his critics wrong.
Don't know anything about Qui Yanbo. Must be an upcoming young China star, perhaps not quite in the mould of Chen Jin yet. He will learn from Lee Hyun Il.
But we will welcome badMania back to Singapore with open arms and look forward to meeting him soon. Maybe he is in the air now!

Today's LIVE Broadcast on SCTV :
- TH vs KJ (01.00pm local time)
- Markis/Hendra vs M.Fairuzizuan/Lin WF (01.45pm)
- Simon vs BCL (02.30pm)
I guess SCTV is very busy with its capacity as FIFA WC-06 Official Broadcaster so they don't coverage too much in IO this year. Anyway, I think CHN's squad present very well performance so far with its '2nd class shuttlers'. Big shock for MAS's team especially LCW as top-seed in this tourney must be lost in early round (quite embarrassing for him -- just straight set give in from CHN's unpopular player). Possible scenario for tomorrow's SF match in MS : TH vs Chen Yu and LHI vs BCL (slim chance for Simon to defeat BCL although many INA's fanatic supporters are very support him).
