I find that Hashim very calm when he play and its difficult for Taufick to defeat him!
I always cheer all!

Taufik go and smash Hafiz Hashim

Hafiz always looked calm, it's in his demeanour. So is Taufik, unless he has problems with line calls.
I think Indian BA is trying to push ticket sales, that's why they set up the XD match first.

I just sense that one of the Malaysian singles players might surprise us but I'm not sure whick one.
One title for Malaysia is satisfactory, two is a bonus and three is the best.

Borrowing badMania's template here ....
Mixed Doubles FINAL
Flandy Limpele/Vita Marissa  vs V. Diju/Jwalla Gutta  -- Diju/Gutta needs to pick up pace to trouble favoured Indonesian pair.
Men's Doubles FINAL
Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah vs Hendri Kurniawan Saputra/Hendra Wijaya -- If SG pair can reduce lifts and maintain rallies, they can take the match. MAS pair very powerful but less mobile.
Women's Doubles FINAL
Vita Marissa/Nadya Melati vs Ma Jin/Wang Xiaoli -- If not for the fact that Vita is playing 2 matches, INA would have an even chance.
Men's Singles FINAL
Mohd Hafiz Hashim  vs Taufik Hidayat  -- Taufik to stamp his class and make the spectators happy ..... possible 3 gamer likely.
Women's Singles FINAL
Pi Hongyan  vs Julia Wong Pei Xian  -- Pi not in top form, yet she has more than enough tricks to take this home.

2009 India Open Finals: Predicting the WINNERS
Predicting the WINNERS: Hope to get at least 3 correct.
Mixed Doubles to INA:
Flandy LIMPELE [INA] Vita MARISSA[INA] to win in 2 games.
Although [IND] Diju VALIYAVEETIL  [IND] Jwala GUTTA are playing at their homeground and that they are seeded higher, Flandy Limpele/Vita Marissa have more experience when it comes to playing big matches at Finals.
Mens Doubles to MAS:
Tan Fook CHOONG [MAS] Wan Wah LEE[MAS] to win in 2 games.
Some will say that [SIN] Hendri Kurniawan SAPUTRA [SIN] Hendra WIJAYA have better stamina. IMHO, stamina plays a lesser role in Doubles. However, will Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah be able to match up with their opponents' speed and power? That's the more important question.
Womens Doubles to CHN:
[CHN] Jin MA [CHN] Xiaoli WANG to win in 2 games.
The combination of Vita MARISSA[INA] Nadya MELATI[INA] is just a shade weaker. Furthermore, Vita Marissa will not have enough time to recover from her Mixed Doubles. I think the Mens Doubles match will be shorter than 30 minutes. Feel so sorry for VM.
Mens Singles to INA:
[INA] Taufik HIDAYAT  to win in 3 games.
A great achievement for Muhammad Hafiz HASHIM [MAS] to arrive at this MS Finals. But here, Taufik Hidayat is more determined to lift his first title in 2009.
Womens Singles to MAS:
[MAS] Julia Pei Xian WONG  to win on 3 games.
I was surprised that Julia Wong Pei Xian defeated [IND] Saina NEHWAL  12-21, 21-13, 21-18 in a long match of 55 minutes. I am expecting this match to go the same distance. Hongyan PI [FRA] won't be able to match up with the fitness of Julia Wong Pei Xian.

Although HH has reach the final of a tournament after such a loonooooong lean spells but Taufik is another level of player.
Even at his best, HH chances of beating TH is about 30-70... so if the Evil HH come playing today his chances of beating TH is 5-95!

The exciting part about MSF is pitting Unpredictable vs Unpredictable.My guess is for Hafiz to win.Reason? Sheer hunger and confidence.
