Swiss Open 2008: Day 3 (13 Mar)
It was a near perfect day for Team INA, if not for Sony's unexpected defeat yesterday. The WS players will be going home as expected, joined by Hendra A. Gunawan/Joko Riyadi and Sony Dwi Kuncoro as flight mates.
Another long day beckons today.....
12:45pm XD R16 Robert Blair/Imogen Bankier vs Flandy Limpele/Vita Marissa  -- another encounter with Blair/Bankier and I believe Flandy/Vita should be fired up by now.
1:30pm XD R16 Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter-Juhl vs Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir  -- another rematch against an old foe. They have met so many times in the past half a year, with records shared at 2-2. The Danish pair won in Chinese-Taipei and French Opens, while the INA pair triumphed in Hong Kong and All-England. Can Nova/Butet repeat last week's result?
3:45pm WD R16 Jo Novita/Greysia Polii vs Gao Ling/Zhao Tingting  -- can Jo/Grace beat the weakest Chinese pair?
3:45pm WD R16 Vita Marissa/Lilyana Natsir vs Du Jing/Yu Yang  -- a battle between the two tomboys...I think the Chinese pair should prevail here.
4:30pm WD R16 Wei Yili/Zhang Yawen  vs Rani Mundiasti/Endang Nursugianti -- another match vs the Chinese pair...surely the INA pair will go home tomorrow.
6:00pm MD R16 Shuichi Sakamoto/Shintaro Ikeda vs Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya  -- a good performance against the AE runner-up for Tony/Candra yesterday and they will face the AE semi-finalist today. They should take this one.
6:45pm MD R16 Tan Bin Shen/Ong Soon Hock vs Luluk Hadiyanto/Alvent Yulianto  -- a tough match for Luluk/Alvent, but, they should win!
8:15pm MS R16 Taufik Hidayat  vs Anup Sridhar -- Taufik was slain by the same opponent in the World Championships last year. Can history repeat itself yet again today?
9:45pm MD R16 Robert Blair/Richard Eidestedt vs Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan  -- the last match of the day as always for Kido/Hendra...they should take this one though!

3:00PM WS WONG Mew Choo  v ZHOU Mi - A 51:49 game. Zhou Mi was struggling since winning the Korea Open, losing in the 1st round in Birmingham last week and was stretched to 3 games by Maria Kristin in the previous round. Based on the form, Wong should prevail in 3 thrilling games.
5:15PM MD CHOONG Tan Fook/LEE Wan Wah  v Lars PAASKE/Jonas RASMUSSEN - It should be a 50:50 game but based on the "trend", MAS uncles are supposed to lose in early round after entering SF in the previous tourney.
6:00PM MS Sairul Amar AYOB v WONG Choong Hann - Wong Sifu is so motivated to qualify for his 3rd OG.
6:00PM MD Zakry ABDUL LATIF/Fairuzizuan TAZARI v KOO Kien Keat/TAN Boon Heong  - A 45:55 game and Koo/Tan should win.
6:45PM WS XU Huaiwen  v WONG Pei Xian Julia - Xu has been consistent lately and she should win.
6:45PM MD ONG Soon Hock/TAN Bin Shen v Alvent Yulianto CHANDRA/Luluk HADIYANTO  - A 45:55 game with the INA pair having the slight edge.
8:15PM MS Dicky PALYAMA v LEE Chong Wei  - Lee should take it.
Note: Malaysia is 7 hours ahead of Basel, Switzerland.

Taufik vs Anup: (55-45)
On paper, Taufik has the upper hand but Anup is another dark horse. If Taufik has an off day, Anup could steal this win.
Nguen vs Susilo: (51-49)
This is a well balanced match. The viet did very well to dispose LHI but Susilo is no easy meat. I predict a marathon match and hopefully Susilo will sustain his fitness (he has not been playing much lately).
