    Default This could be..

    ..Taufik's next project (and maybe farewell big tourney):
    the 2008 Super Series Grand Finale....The last 2 SS tourneys (CHN Open and HK Open SS will most likely be funded out of his own pocket)..

    Regarding China Open, I dont think Taufik will be making it past the Qaurter finals because he will be facing Lin Dan. Although it sounds good, Lin Dan will not want to disappoint his fans and will put out his best against Taufik, and an Olympic in-form Lin Dan against a partially in-form Taufik, i think i am seeing that Lin Dan will be winning. Lin Dan has a lot of stamina and will probably win the match by simply outrunning him. I hope taufik's backhand save him My prediction. Taufik will lose to Boonsak Ponsana or he might lose the next one after boonsak. I don't think he wants to face Lin Dan.(taufik I hope ur not reading this).

    one shouldn't be that confidence. TH will use this (element of surprise) to his advantage since he has be playing while LD is resting. TH even won a title or 2 plus runner-ups. Meanwhile, LD's muscle and stamina have relaxed while partaking many socials and banquets If these 2 do meet up, the result will be alot closer than usual.

    In hindsight, this was a very astute observation
