Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir  vs Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung  -- a repeat of the Beijing Oympics Gold Medal match. I think Lee/Lee have an edge, but, Nova/Butet can also spring some surprise if they believe in themselves and play well.
Zhou Mi  vs Tine Rasmussen  -- my pick will be on Zhou to win yet another SS title.
Lee Chong Wei  vs Park Sung Hwan  -- no doubt about it, LCW to win back-to-back MAS SS title.
Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen  vs Lee Kyung Won/Lee Hyo Jung  -- the now independent CHN girls to win back-to-back MAS SS title after last year's thriller.
Hendra A. Gunawan/Alvent Yulianto vs Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae  -- a marvellous effort from the newly formed INA pair to get into the Final in their first attempt, which include the spectacular comeback from the brink of defeat yesterday. This also represents AG's first Final in a SS event. Alvent's experience in beating the KOR pair last year will hopefully help them, but, the KOR still has the edge.

Almost 50 minutes before the final battles and the crowd is starting to converge.
Had to park my car quite a bit away despite being early.
A quick bite, and a visit to the loo, and we are good to go.

Nova and Lily just completed their "court inspection" aka warmup.
I am seated alone yet again, anti-establishment that I am. Directly on top of the main TV cameras and THAT GUY. He's doing his own last minute preps..

A young TPE MD player just won fairplay award.
How do they determine that, I wonder ....

Both Hauge and THAT GUY arm themselves with 100+ energy drink for the big battle ahead.

Unfortunately I am armed lightly with two smartphones, otherwise Oldhand's suggestion is worth exploring.
But I need a team of BC lawyers first.

Lily missed a sitter.
Loose clears are the order of the day so far.

LHJ exposed against dropshots.
Still errors dominate the play, scores are close.

INA hold steady and a 3 pt advantage reward.
