Li Ning China Open Super Series 2008: Day 4 (QF)
Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun  vs Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya  -- the first match of the day and the veteran has a slim chance of reaching the SF. It will be a major upset if Tony/Candra can beat Fu/Cai.
Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari/Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif  vs Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen  -- expect an interesting battle between MAS no 1 pair and DEN no 2 pair.
Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah  vs Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae  -- the Korean pair should take this one.
Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong  vs Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen  -- order is reversed...MAS no 2 pair vs DEN no 1 pair, with the Danish pair having a slight edge.
Other interesting clashes:
He Hanbin/Yu Yang  vs Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung  -- Olympics Gold vs Bronze Meddalists in action tomorrow and the top-seed has a slight edge.

hmm, i have to disagree with this..
imo, koo/tan does look very relax in this tournament p/s LP/JR is having quite a hard time in todays match..
i would rate the malaysians have 55-44% chance in this match..

Paaske/Rasmussen were struggling with the Korean and English pairs in the previous rounds. How can they have a slight edge? It looks like a wish than a prediction to me.
Barring from any biased line-judging, I expect a thrilling 3-game match between the Olympic Gold & Bronze medalists with the Korean prevailing in the end.

anyone knows the schedule of QF?
11-20-2008, 10:18 PM #16
It starts at 2 pm on 3 courts. But there is a gap between matches, at intervals of 45 minutes (except TV court). So if one match ended early and you didn't see anything on livescore after that, doesn't mean it doesn't work.
