Aiya... just came back to find out that Fu/Cai lost!
My prediction (left side are winners):
Lin Dan vs LCW
Xie Xingfang vs Zhang Ning
CTF/LWW vs Kido/Setiawan
Gao/Huang vs Zhang/Yang
Widianto/Natsir vs Zheng/Zhao

The only time when LCW will is able to beat LD if they are in Malaysia.
Lin Dan all the way.

Wow, Widianto/Natsir is on the roll here. They beat Xie/Zhang. A sweet revenge. Xie/Zhang defeated them in Indonesia Open and now they returned the favour. Sweet! I hope they win this HK open as well. They may become a saviour once again for PBSI. Btw, somebody mentioned that Natsir is quiet cute in person. Well, she comes from a place called Manado in Indonesian. Manado is famous for its spicy cuisine and...of course its girls' beauty .
Kido/Setiawan is looking good as well here. It seems to me they are on the right track to become Indonesia's no 1 pair, but they still need that Champion mentality. Hopefully they can break their poor record against CTF/LWW.
I will pick Lee Chong Wei for MS because he is from Indonesia's neighbouring country .

My predictions :
MS : Lin Dan (i am Lin Dan's fans, of coz choose LD :P)
WS : Xie Xingfang(hope they can be golden couple again)
MX : Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir (definitely will win)
WD : Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen (my favourite WD players)
MD : Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah(they have beaten CY/FHF,they certain can bt Indonesian pair :P)

LCW rarely beats LD outside Malaysia.

This is 6 stars tournament, so the title belongs to LD. If this is 4 stars, then its LCW. The same will happen to MD, the title will go to INA....sigh...when can we see Mal team make a breakthrough.

Most of their matched were very close so todays match can still go either way.

i would say LD has an edge when LCW might not be as energetic after sept1's play
as long as they reaches the 3rd set, LD would win for sure due to more physically fit than LCW(or any one in MS), for many of the contest i have seen, LD is a slow starter
being the top 2 in ranking, i don't think their skills vary too much, i would say they differ in style than skill imo, just like preference in chinese or western meal than to say the quality of it
i have my money on LD, of cuz

On the match between LinDan and LCW.. i would say it will be a close match. LCW is getting better and i hope he will win this time. No offense to LinDan fans.. i like him too.
I do also hope the Msian doubles pair to win this time. Big bonus for them as WC is approaching. They are not called Asian Champs for nothing. Hhehe..
For WS.. i would also want ZN to win this HKO. It might be her last appearance as a player in HKO. It would be good to bring back a souvenir.

I think the Indonesia pair is goin 2 win the men's double for 2nite ..CTF/LWW seems don't know how to play final ...they r good pair ...able to play against anyone....but not in the final
