SEA Games 2007 Day 5: Individual Event R8
As much as I could gather:
(Predicted winner listed first)
MS (pretty straightforward predictions)
Taufik v Yeoh KB
Nguyen TM v Poompat
Boonsak v Sathien (Laos)
Kendrick v Kuan BH
Taufik v Boonsak final
WS (all pretty tough)
Lydia Cheah v Soratja
Li Li v Firdasari
Julia Wong v Salakjit
Maria Kristin v Xing AY
Hard to predict: Possibly all-Indo final, or all-MAS final, or even all-SIN final; Salakjit can enter final but I doubt Soratja can
Kido/Setiawan v PRAPAKAMOL/NGENSRISUK
Gan TC/Lin WF v Tran/Nguyen
Wijaya/Saputra v Latif/Khoo
Gunawan/Riyadi v PANVISAVAS/ANUGRITAYAWON
All-Indo final, but other pairs can spring surprises on their on days
Jiang/Li v Goh LY/Ng HL
Marissa/Natsir v Nguyen/Vu (Vie)
Kunchala/partner v Phi/Phung (Vie)
Novita/Polii v Wong PT/Woon KW
All-Indo final no sweat
Widianto/Natsir v Wijaya/Jiang
Sudket/Saralee v Latif/Ng HL
Saputra/Li v Tan WK/Woon KW
Limpele/Marissa v Asuncion/Asuncion
All-Indo final but watch out for homesters Sudket/Saralee

It's great to see Kendrick doing well and improving. he has the advantage of still being a work -in-progress so opponents can't tell his game yet. The other Kendrick edge is he has no respect or fear for his opponent.
Sony losing to KL is not surprising;that's probably the cumulative effect of 3 consecutive tournaments whereas KL skipped both CO and HKO so he's absolutely fresh.
KBH should also be rather fresh. KBH is not bad;the last time I saw him play was SO07 vs CY.I enjoy his game. If he has fixed his fitness/stamina and attitude, he can still spring a surprise.Let's hope it's gonna be a good match.

Matches involving Team INA
MEN'S SINGLES QF
Taufik Hidayat  vs Yeoh Kay Bin -- with Sony losing to Kendrick Lee Yen Hui in the first round, Taufik is INA's only hope for a Gold in MS. He should beat Yeoh Kay Bin tomorrow. With Ronald Susilo injured, his next opponent should be Nguyen Tien-Minh.
MEN'S DOUBLES QF
Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan  vs Sudket Prapakamol/Phattapol Ngensrisuk -- any match involving Sudket is always interesting. This one could go to another rubber-set as in the Team Event.
Songphon Anugritayawon/Tesana Panvisvas vs Hendra A. Gunawan/Joko Riyadi  -- yet another rematch and AG/Joko should prevail again.
WOMEN'S SINGLES QF
Li Li  vs Adriyanti Firdasari -- Li Li has beaten Maria Kristin yesterday and given Firda's inconsistent form, I think Li Li will prevail.
Xing Aiying vs Maria Kristin Yulianti  -- a tough match for Maria and she needs to be at her best to beat the young Singaporean player.
WOMEN'S DOUBLES QF
Vita Marissa/Liliyana Natsir  vs Nguyen/Vu -- a breeze for Vita/Butet
Jo Novita/Greysia Polii vs Wong Pei Tty/Woon Khee Wei -- with Chin Ee Hui injured, I think Jo/Greysia will take this one.
MIXED DOUBLES QF
Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir  vs Hendra Wijaya/Jiang Yanmei -- the top seed should win it.
Kennevic Asuncion/Kennie Asuncion vs Flandy Limpele/Vita Marissa  -- ditto.

Taufik v Yeoh KB - Yeoh has no chance in hell ......
Nguyen TM v Poompat - boogieman Nguyen is too good, showed good form in team event
Boonsak v Sathien (Laos) - hosts no 1 get a practically guaranteed medal, not that he doesn't deserve it.
Kendrick v Kuan BH - closest of the 4 matches, giant killer Kendrick has a point to prove, Kuan has nothing to lose.
Lydia Cheah v Soratja - tough for Lydia, has better skills but prone to mistakes. Plus, Sorajta is on home soil
Li Li v Firdasari - the way Firda is playing, it's time to say sayonara to her title
Julia Wong v Salakjit - 50-50, Julia in great form, Salakjit out to redeem her pride with crowd backing.
Maria Kristin v Xing AY - Maria just has a bit of an edge, but if the game extends, expect the outcome to favour Xing
Kido/Setiawan v PRAPAKAMOL/NGENSRISUK - difficult battle for World Champs, but should still pass through.
Gan TC/Lin WF v Tran/Nguyen - MAS get one guaranteed medal, not that they really deserve it (based on their display against Singapore)
Wijaya/Saputra v Latif/Khoo - SIN No 1 show MAS youngsters a trick or two
Gunawan/Riyadi v PANVISAVAS/ANUGRITAYAWON - INA out to ensure all INA final
Jiang/Li v Goh LY/Ng HL - SG pair just too strong, MAS pair not seasoned yet
Marissa/Natsir v Nguyen/Vu (Vie) - INA steamroll past the opposition
Kunchala/partner v Phi/Phung (Vie) - THA pair take it, but that's as far as they go
Novita/Polii v Wong PT/Woon KW - INA to win, but expect a fight from MAS scratch combination
Widianto/Natsir v Wijaya/Jiang - World Champs take it, probably with some difficulty if their form fluctuates like in HK Final
Sudket/Saralee v Latif/Ng HL - flamboyant Sudket unleashes cluster bombs at hapless MAS youngsters
Saputra/Li v Tan WK/Woon KW - the other MAS youngsters try to fight back, with no avail
Limpele/Marissa v Asuncion/Asuncion - INA veterans have too much class

Umm..little bit worry about Thai players, because their national coach, Mr. Atik Jauhari may be very familiar with Indonesian style...

Can someone enlighten me... if the players make it to the semi-finals, are they assured of at least a bronze medal or do they have to fight for 3rd/4th placing if they lose in the semi-finals? Many thanks.
12-11-2007, 10:48 PM #7
no need to fight for 3rd/4th place, semifinalists are enough to win a bronze medal each..
12-11-2007, 10:48 PM #8
Yes, they get guaranteed bronze. Same rule as Asian Games.
But not the Olympics, you must fight for bronze .....

First great news for MAS badminton in the SEA Games -
Julia has beaten Salakjit 21-16, 21-12, in so doing, avenging WMC's loss in the HK Open. Very good form indeed .......
12-12-2007, 02:13 AM #16
Julia Wong beat Salakjit straight set:21-12,21-16
12-12-2007, 02:20 AM #17
Maria Kristin is the most technically competent of all these Southeast Asian competing this week [WMC not included]. Unless she is feeling really down or unmotivated, she can defeat anybody here!
