    As feared, both MS players failed to qualify. Taufik Akbar Hidayat got the ticket to the main draw to be played today.

    Mixed Doubles R32
    Mikkel Delbo-Larsen/Mie Schjott-Kristensenvs Fran Kurniawan/Shendy Puspa Irawati -- a tricky match for Fran/Shendy. I hope they can continue their fine run towards the Final last week.

    Men's Singles R32
    Ari Yuli Wahyu Hartanto vs Raul Must -- the Djarum pair should take this one.

    Women's Singles R32
    Anna Rice [1] vs Rosaria Yusfin Pungkasari -- the top seed has the edge.

    Jang Soo Young [8] vs Syvinna Kurniawan -- 50-50 and the Korean player has the slight edge.

    Eva Sladekova vs Maria Elfira Christina -- Fira should take this one.

    Fran Kurniawan/Rendra Wijaya [4] and Meiliana Jauhari/Shendy Puspa Irawati will start to play only in R16.

    That's really very very close Fran/Shendy could become one of INA's main XD pair if both of them want to focus on XD also.

    Yes, they're definitely more explosive [power-wise] than Tantowi-Yulianti. Maybe they just lack the shot-variations and too predictable. Rizal-Greysia has the shot-variations and shot-unpredictability, just not enough power [compared to the top-pairs]...

    By the way, Ari Yuli Wahyu have defeated Raul Must 21-15, 21-9 and Peter Mikkelsen [5] defeated Taufik Hidayat Akbar 21-14, 21-10.

    Wahyu vs. Peter will play later on tonight... in around 4 hours time...

    When they are not playing well, like today, Rizal/Grace can lose easily because they are just not too powerful and looked lost

    Pipin lost to Anna Rice.
    Maria Elfira Christina progresses as expected.

    Yes... Pipin lost 13-21, 21-13, 21-16 in 52 minutes... Sigh...
    Fira totally demolished her opponent. Must be due to injury or something...

    I am still waiting for the Sylvi result...

    I think it could be the case of China doing their homework (i.e. video work) more dilligently than INA. especially since He/Yu narrowly won last time they played Rizal/Grace.

    I still predict INA will win 1 or 2 titles in Finland... from MD, WD, and XD... most probably not from WS or MS...

    Mixed Doubles R16
    Dean George/Mariana Agathangelou vs Fran Kurniawan/Shendy Puspa Irawati -- another tricky match for Fran/Shendy but we know that they are powerful enough....

    Men's Singles R16
    Ari Yuli Wahyu Hartanto vs Peter Mikkelsen [5] -- a tough battle for Wahyu...I think the Danes has an edge.

    Women's Singles R16
    Maria Elfria Christina vs Anastasia Kudinova -- Fira should take this one.
