Chen Jin to beat Simon, but Simon will provide decent opposition.
Zhang Ning will just toy around with Lu Lan and regain her pride.
Koo/Tan to take their 4th title together, but Danes will provide better opposition than the All-England semis.
CHN has slight edge, but the 2 Lees can will, if pressure is maintained on Zhao Tingting.
The 2 Lees to win, but again, it will be very close. Could go INA's way if Lee Hyo-Jung is forced to make errors like what happened in Asian Games Q-final against MAS's Wong/Tazari.

Yes, MAS have a talent problem.
Not because of lack of talented players, more because of not much effort (so far) has been done to develop young blood. And amazingly, this is not because of lack funds or proper sports school concept for young talents.
BAM even lacks development of XD programme. The men's are stagnating and the women's discipline should have had more depth by now. How long has it been since Wong Mew Choo and Wong Pei Tty/Chin Ee Hui made their mark in the world stage?

KKK-TBH will win the SWISS OPEN and take a little rest before the next game. They are young and should not have a burn out as everyone suggested/

Maliq, matches starts at 7 pm (Malaysian time) and I think only Astro Channel 80 showing it LIVE.

Actually there are many talented players in Malaysia, just like there are many talented singers here. However talent is not everything, proper management, dicipline, coaches, diligence are all contributing factors to produce world champions. The Chinese players have different training system. They train full time, 6 days a week and do not go home for Chinese New Year celebrations at just to train and stay focus for future competitions! So you can imagine how much endurance is that.. Their way of training is crazy, no doubt their players are solid...
To say Malaysia being overdependant on them(kkk/tbh), maybe. Its natural to be the centre of attention after emerging champions in various tournaments, so naturally fans & media focus on them. I'm sure Malaysians would wish to see other teams do well, so do I. We all know for sure M'sia's badminton camp is weak, so at least kkk/tbh is the benchmark and inspires other players to do well. Rexy is also bringing up other young pairs, and not to forget training new mix doubles pair as well. As for the singles, BAM have to sit down n discuss how to go about next. Being constructive at this stage is important, c'mon we all wan consistent world champions...Just producing them isn't easy.
I think the semi final match starts at 9 pm or 1 am..1 am most likely i think...

Actually, there are quite a number of promising juniors (both boys and girls) in the Malaysian camp. There is hope.

Simon Vs Chen Jin
It will be a tough battle for the Indonesian. Chen Jin's playing style is something like Lin Dan. We never know what will happen, but I will be rooting for Simon. If he can keep the momentum of defeating Lin Dan, he should be able to win against Chen Jin.
Polii/Rizal Vs Hyo Jung/Yong Dae
The young Indonesian pair against the young Korean pair (well Hyo Jung is not that young anymore). I have a feeling these two pairs will rule the XD in the future. I will give 60 - 40 for the Korean. HOWEVER, I'm rooting for the Indonesian.
