    Errr..I don't think Park Sung Hwan's match against John Moody and Lin Dan's match against Bobby Milroy have started. So, there could still be some upsets

    I remember people argued before who got the easiest draw. Now let's review it now since things are getting clearer. Here is my order (from easiest to hardest) for this round:

    Hafiz, Lee HI, Gade, Chen Jin, Lee CW, Lin, Palyama, Bao, Hidayat, Sony Pang, Kuan, Persson, Sato, Park, Chen Hong

    So, It seems Hafiz, Lee HI, Gade, .. get easy draws, while Chen Hong gets the hardest. Taufik seems in form.

    Taufik will win. Chen Hong has bad record with Taufik, only 1 win.

    Only Bao Chunlai can stop Taufik.

    As one of you have said, there's plenty of mouth-watering clashes tomorrow. A total of 36 matches to be played from 2pm Madrid time. So, here's my pick for tomorrow's matches:

    MS ROUND OF 16
    Lee Chong Wei vs Joachim Persson -- no problem for Lee!

    Bao Chunlai vs Sony Dwi Kuncoro -- I hope Sony wins...but...But is superior!

    Chen Jin vs Kuan Beng Hong -- Kuan has done his job...reaching the last 16. He will not beat Chen Jin.

    Taufik Hidayat vs Chen Hong (MATCH OF THE DAY) -- Taufik has been Chen Hong's nemesis and his luck against the Chinese player shall continue tomorrow...probably in 3 sets.

    Park Sung Hwan vs Lin Dan -- a more difficult opponent for Lin Dan compared to today's...but...shouldn't be a problem also.

    MD ROUND OF 16
    Luluk Hadiyanto/Alvent Yulianto vs Roman Spitko/Michael Fuchs -- shouldn't be a problem for the INA pair.

    Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan vs Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah (MATCH OF THE DAY) -- a tough tie for Kido/Hendra and a test of their credential. I hope they win.

    Guo Zhendong/Xie Zhongbo vs Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari/Lin Woon Fui -- the Malaysian pair has an edge.

    Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen vs Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae -- a close candidate for match of the day. Experience vs youth...and I pick youth!

    WS ROUND OF 16
    Zhang Ning vs Wong Mew Choo -- no question, the Chinese player should win!

    Kaori Mori vs Jiang Yanjiao -- a tricky tie for Jiang, but, she should manage.

    Yip Pui Yin vs Pi Hongyan -- Pi to win!

    Tine Rasmussen vs Xie Xingfang -- the Danish player has recovered well from her injury. She could pose some problems for Xie.

    Eriko Hirose vs Xu Huaiwen (MATCH OF THE DAY) -- a tough tie for both players...I pick the German to win.

    WD QUARTER-FINAL -- all four Chinese pairs are expected to make it
    Gao Ling/Huang Sui vs Chien Yu-Chin/Cheng Wen-Hsing (MATCH OF THE DAY)

    Kumiko Ogura/Reiko Shiota vs Du Jing/Yu Yang

    Wong Pei Tty/Chin Ee Hui vs Wei Yili/Zhang Yawen

    Saralee Thoungthongkam/Sathinee Chankrachangwong vs Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen

    XD ROUND OF 16
    Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir vs Koo Kien Keat/Wong Pei Tty -- with CCM's withdrawal in the MD, it could motivate KKK to win this match. A real tricky test for the defending champion. They should win.

    Jonas Rasmussen/Britta Andersen vs Robert Blair/Natalie Munt -- the Danish pair has had a rest day, while the English pair struggled in beating the Chinese Taipei pair. Both sets ended up in deuce. I pick the Danish pair.

    Zhang Jun/Gao Ling vs Zhang Wei/Yu Yang -- thankfully, Lee Yong Dae/Hwang Yu Mi lost surprisingly today. Zhang/Gao should have a clear path to the semi-final.

    Zheng Bo/Zhao Tingting vs Nathan Robertson/Gail Emms (MATCH OF THE DAY) -- a thrilling match is in store...expect 3 sets...with deuces. The English pair holds a slight edge.

    Robert Mateusiak/Nadiezda Kostiuczyk vs Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam -- Sudket/Saralee should progress.

    MD:

    Fu/Cai - Kumar/Sanave

    should be an interesting match. I still remember how Kumar/Sanave troubled Candra/Sigit in last year's WC. The Indian players have amazing reflexes and appeared even faster than Sigit sometimes.

    Taufik got a good chance of defending his title. But if Bao enter final to meet Taufik, then I pick Bao. Anyway too early to say that.

    here are mine:

    XD
    Zhongbo XIE/Yawen ZHANG v William MILROY/Tammy SUN

    simply too strong.

    Nathan ROBERTSON/Gail EMMS v Bo ZHENG/Tingting ZHAO

    i pick the Chinese on this one. they came right off their recent win, should be fired up if they would stop arguing.

    Sudket PRAPAKAMOL/Saralee THOUNGTHONGKAM v Robert MATEUSIAK/ Nadiezda KOSTIUCZYK

    my favorite pair should win against the Pols. but the Pols are by no means an easy match either.

    Thomas LAYBOURN/Juhl Kamilla RYTTER v Mohd Fairuzizuan MOHD TAZARI/Sock Ai OOI

    Go Thomas!

    Jun ZHANG/Ling GAO v Wei ZHANG/Yang (F) YU

    how can one not pick a two time Olympic champion??

    Jonas RASMUSSEN/Britta ANDERSEN v Robert BLAIR/Natalie MUNT

    we always support Jonas here.

    Nova WIDIANTO/Lilyana NATSIR v Kien Keat KOO/Pei Tty WONG

    Lilyana is too strong for Wong, unfortunately.

    MD
    Haifeng FU/Yun CAI v Rupesh KUMAR/Thomas SANAVE

    Fu/Cai on training run here.

    Luluk HADIYANTO/Yulianto ALVEN v Roman SPITKO/Michael FUCHS

    Same.

    Jens ERIKSEN/Martin LUNDGAARD HANSEN v Shuichi SAKAMOTO/Shintaro IKEDA

    Jens needs to win this in order to prove his words on later rounds.

    Tan Fook CHOONG/Wan Wah LEE v Markis KIDO/Hendra SETIAWAN

    i pick Choong/Lee on this one. i don't expect them to fall until SF.

    Mohd Fairuzizuan MOHD TAZARI/ Woon Fui LIN v Zhendong GUO/
    Zhongbo XIE

    you know, i am 50/50.

    Lars PAASKE/Jonas RASMUSSEN v Jae Sung JUNG/Yong Dae LEE

    Match of the day for me. ex-WC against young pair from KOR. i pick JR/LP.

    WS
    Chen WANG v Petra OVERZIER

    Petya NEDELTCHEVA v Susan HUGHES

    dunno.

    Yanjiao JIANG v Kaori MORI

    Mori is not the same league imho.

    Hongyan PI v Pui Yin YIP

    YIPPY vs HYPI... HYPI definitely has the edge here.


    Xingfang XIE v Tine RASMUSSEN

    defending Champion will be hard to beat.

    Huaiwen XU v Eriko HIROSE

    Hirose is probably the strongest Japanese. but unforutnately, she still has a way to go...

    Tracey HALLAM v Monthila MEEMEK

    dunno


    Ning ZHANG v Mew Choo WONG

    watched
    WMC 1st round match. probably one of the best non-chinese-derived players around. but unfortunately, bad draw against Zhang Ning. Li Mao will have to wait another couple of years.

    MS
    Chong Wei LEE v Joachim PERSSON

    we will now start to see what form LCW is in.

    Muhd Hafiz B HASHIM v Dicky PALYAMA

    should still be ok for Hafix.

    Peter GADE v Shoji SATO

    never ever been impressed by Sato.


    Jin CHEN v Beng Hong KUAN

    won't even be close, imho.

    Sony Dwi KUNCORO v Chunlai BAO

    tough call, actually, but i think Sony will prevail.

    Dan LIN v Sung Hwan PARK

    Lin Dan better play seriously.


    Taufik HIDAYAT v Hong CHEN

    i will leave this one as 50/50.


    WD
    Wei YANG/Jiewen ZHANG v Saralee THOUNGTHONGKAM/Sathinee CHANKRACHANGWONG

    even though i like the Thai pair. but the chinese are just too strong.


    Jing DU/Yang (F) YU v Kumiko OGURA/Reiko SHIOTA

    i give the Japanese some more credit. they are lucky to have drawn against the weakest Chinese pair.


    Ling GAO/Sui HUANG v Yu-Chin CHIEN/Wen-Hsing CHENG

    another practice match.

    Pei Tty WONG/Eei Hui CHIN v Yawen ZHANG/ Yili WEI

    Wong/Chin is still a class below any of the Chinese WD pairs..

    Here is my pick:

    XD
    Zhongbo XIE/Yawen ZHANG v William MILROY/Tammy SUN

    Xie/Zhang went from getting the toughest draw in XD draw (before Korea pair withdraw) to getting the easiest draw to sail into QF. 2 sets!

    Nathan ROBERTSON/Gail EMMS v Bo ZHENG/Tingting ZHAO

    The record are not so good for Zhao/Zheng, but lately they play very well meanwhile Nathan/Emms play below their best play. Chinese pair will win in 3 sets.

    Sudket PRAPAKAMOL/Saralee THOUNGTHONGKAM v Robert MATEUSIAK/ Nadiezda KOSTIUCZYK

    Thai pair will move on to QFin 2 tough set.

    Thomas LAYBOURN/Juhl Kamilla RYTTER v Mohd Fairuzizuan MOHD TAZARI/Sock Ai OOI

    No question at all. The Danes roll on in 2 set.

    Jun ZHANG/Ling GAO v Wei ZHANG/Yang (F) YU

    It will not be easy for Zhang/Gao to win their junior pair cause they probably play each other so many times in their training. 2 tough set.

    Jonas RASMUSSEN/Britta ANDERSEN v Robert BLAIR/Natalie MUNT

    This is the Danes chance after Jens/Mette withdrawal. 2 sets.

    Nova WIDIANTO/Lilyana NATSIR v Kien Keat KOO/Pei Tty WONG

    Will be hard fought 2 sets for the Indonesia pair to win.

    MD
    Haifeng FU/Yun CAI v Rupesh KUMAR/Thomas SANAVE

    Wuushhhhhhh, sail through......for Cai/Fu in 2 sets.

    Luluk HADIYANTO/Yulianto ALVEN v Roman SPITKO/Michael FUCHS

    Ditto.

    Jens ERIKSEN/Martin LUNDGAARD HANSEN v Shuichi SAKAMOTO/Shintaro IKEDA

    Same here.

    Tan Fook CHOONG/Wan Wah LEE v Markis KIDO/Hendra SETIAWAN

    The Indonesia pair held advantage bywinning their last meeting only 2 weeks ago. 3 hard fought sets.


    Mohd Fairuzizuan MOHD TAZARI/ Woon Fui LIN v Zhendong GUO/
    Zhongbo XIE

    Hard to predict. Judging by Malaysian pair who almost lost to Russia pair in first set today, it will be 50-50.

    Lars PAASKE/Jonas RASMUSSEN v Jae Sung JUNG/Yong Dae LEE

    It a shame, why LP and JR only play together in Thomas Cup event this year before this WC. So the Korea pair will advanced in 3 sets.

    WS
    Chen WANG v Petra OVERZIER

    Wang sail through.

    Petya NEDELTCHEVA v Susan HUGHES

    Petya more consistent than Susan. She will win in 3 sets.


    Yanjiao JIANG v Kaori MORI

    Judging from Kaori MOri lately performance, 2 sets for Jiang.

    Hongyan PI v Pui Yin YIP

    Pi advanced in 2 sets.

    Xingfang XIE v Tine RASMUSSEN

    The same result as Hongkong Open semifinal, XXF roll on with 2 sets.

    Huaiwen XU v Eriko HIROSE

    2 years ago with Cheng Shao Chieh, Eriko is one of the rising star in WS who were not came from China squad. But after two year, she cannot break through the top elite WS. So Xu will win probably in 3 sets.

    Tracey HALLAM v Monthila MEEMEK

    Tracey will win in 3 sets.

    Ning ZHANG v Mew Choo WONG

    Zhang Ning will win in 2 sets.

    MS
    Chong Wei LEE v Joachim PERSSON

    LCW will win 2 tight set.

    Muhd Hafiz B HASHIM v Dicky PALYAMA

    Hafiz will roll on in 2 set if he play his usual standard.

    Peter GADE v Shoji SATO

    PG will roll on in 2 sets.

    Jin CHEN v Beng Hong KUAN

    Same here

    Sony Dwi KUNCORO v Chunlai BAO

    THeir record is 6-0 for Bao Chun Lai. It will take 200% effort from Sonny and BCL under performed for Sonny to win. After he won his second title this year, BCL will be much more confidence. He will sail through in 2 sets.

    Dan LIN v Sung Hwan PARK

    If LD play seriously, he will advanced in 2 sets. If he goofing around, 3 sets.

    Taufik HIDAYAT v Hong CHEN

    iTH had to play better than today in order to win Chen Hong. If his standard like today, CH will win. TH will advanced in 3 tough sets.


    WD
    Wei YANG/Jiewen ZHANG v Saralee THOUNGTHONGKAM/Sathinee CHANKRACHANGWONG

    Chinese pair will steam roll the Thai pair. Not to mention the Thai pair lay a long match today against Japan second pair. Not to mention the Chinese already won 6-0 against the Thai.

    Jing DU/Yang (F) YU v Kumiko OGURA/Reiko SHIOTA

    Du/YU already won 2 title this year. 2 easy set for the Chinese. They probably smile alot after they know their toughest rival in this QF draw the Korean pair withdraw.

    Ling GAO/Sui HUANG v Yu-Chin CHIEN/Wen-Hsing CHENG

    11-0 for Gao/Huang so far. 2 closed sets. And the Chinese will roll to SF.

    Pei Tty WONG/Eei Hui CHIN v Yawen ZHANG/ Yili WEI

    THe Chinese already win twice this year against the Malaysian pair. And this time it will make number three win. They already past their toughest fight in this QF draw against the England in R16. So All China WD SF this year.

    CHN team has won 30+ matches without losing any. But it will not be the case tomorrow. It's guaranteed that some CHN players will lose tomorrow, the question is how many and who are they?

    MAS team did pretty good also, especially the men's team, without losing any, except CCM early withdrawal for family reasons. Hope CCM gets well and becomes stronger in the future, since he has to be the man in the house now.

    INA team, DEN team all are doing pretty good. The early rounds of WC are definitely boring because its limitations. Usually in open tournaments, many youngsters, new bloods, came to play, and upset veterans, some low ranked but decent players, like Chen Yu, Simon, Qiu YB, YKB,... made a lot of upsets. But now at WC, they are excluded to play, so you can only watch big guns slaughtering in early rounds.
