    Predicts :
    NovaLyn 2 games
    Rasmussen 3 games
    Lee 2 games
    Du/Yu 3 games
    Paaske/Rasmussen 2 games

    I note that China will at least win 1 draw, less than expected (??)

    the surprise is for sure the MD !!

    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)

    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.

    No, of course not. He was in the junior ranks only a couple of years ago. I think he made a breakthrough with a few big name scalps last year and has continued to develop (very quickly, may I add) this year. JPN has a new hero to hang their hat on.

    Default 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!!..

    XD FINAL
    Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei vs Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir [2] - 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!

    WS FINAL
    Wang Yihan [1] vs Tine Rasmussen - a repeat of last year's Final and my vote goes to Tine.

    MS FINAL
    Lee Chong Wei
    [1] 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.

    WD FINAL
    Du Jing/Yu Yang
    [1] vs Cheng Shu/Zhao Yunlei [3]

    MD FINAL
    Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen
    vs Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen [4] - 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?
