Somebody had mentioned LYB set a target of 2 titles. One is in the bag so it's up to WYH or ZN/ZYL to pick up the other. I'd be surprised if it's the latter. WYH v TR is a 50/50 proposition. Both have shown resilience and incredible mental strength.
(Oooooooo... 12K, hehe)

Hehe happy 12k birthday !!
More seriously I hope TR will won , it would be great for Denmarks uber team
oooops I wrote Saturday on the topics name, if the moderator can correct it would be nice

A Tine victory would be a popular one but I should say a WYH win would also be greeted with much joy. Both players have their own appeals and fan bases. Either would be fine for me as I like them both.
Ditto with LCW and Tago. But it would be nice to see LCW pick up a major and shake off the choker tag. If Tago wins, it would be an incredible underdog achievement; I think most people would also be happy with that.

Yeah if Tago would win it would be incredible !
i wonder if he ever won a ss tournament ?

Are they qualified ?

Ike Tago! I hope he has enough tricks to fool LCW too.

Here's my "Cloudy with a Chance of Bolehians Partying On The Street" prediction..
...here we are..history on the line...no chokers allowed...do or die...
WS - I am picking the ever, fierce yet graceful Wang Yihan to defend her crown..
WD - I am picking the two ladies you don't want to whistle at in a local baddy club, Du Jing & Yu Yang..
XD - I am picking the almost-separated-but-can't-go-yet pairing of Nova Widianto & Liliyana Natsir..
MD - Of course I have to be loyal or else Mr. Rasmussen will come looking for me....so, gotta go with JR & LP
and last but not least..
MS - Yes, he is on the cusp of achieving and bringing glory back to the Boleh Land.......ladies and gentlemen, your AE 100th Anniversary MS champion....Datuk Lee Chong Wei!!..

Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei vs Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir  - will Nova/Butet end a nation's long wait for another AE title in XD? I hope so and will be praying that the "good" Nova shows up!
Wang Yihan  vs Tine Rasmussen - a repeat of last year's Final and my vote goes to Tine.
Lee Chong Wei  vs Kenichi Tago - who would have expected Tago to reach the Final? I don't But he certainly made the World noticed him (esp Lee Yong Bo), after defeating 3 top 10 players in the space of 4 days! Lee Chong Wei will need to be careful and play his normal game. Cue wild celebration if LCW win this for MAS.
Du Jing/Yu Yang  vs Cheng Shu/Zhao Yunlei 
Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen vs Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen  - both pairs have excelled this week, resulting in an all-DEN Final in MD. I hope Paaske/Rasmussen can end their career with a Major Title!

The last Japanese to appear in an AE final was Masao Akiyama in 1966. He lost to Tan Aik Huang of Malaysia.
Good omen for LCW?
