Did a little calculation of my own; points won by Towi/Butet in Swiss, plus the possible win AUS GPG.....Towi/Butet as no.1?
Since XD pairs ZN/ZY, XC/MJ, and the no.3 Danes pair not gonna be in AUS, and provided that Towi/Butet able to keep their fine form, I just think that the duo has the chance to dethrown ZN/ZY for awhile before the BAC.

if towi/butet won Australia GPG, towi/butet's points just raise around 1600 (around 1000 from Swiss and another 650 from Aus GPG). so, their points will be about 82000. ZN/ZYL's points is around 90000.
how come you think that towi/butet can be no 1 before BAC ??
even, with 4000 points difference from no 2 (CX/MJ), i dont think towi/butet can be 2nd seed in Olympics. maximum is 3rd seed in Olympics, i think

Quick answer is not even close.
Their net gain for the swiss title is 950 points, and the aussie title if they win will be another 580 points.
Zhang nan and zhao yunlei's world no 1 come from the world champ plus the SS final, 3 SSP and 1 SS titles

If Towi/Butet able to threaten XC/MJ post or even ZN/ZYL post, LYB will surely send one of their XD to the Aussie GP Gold to prevent that happening. CBA wants to secure top two seeds for OG2012. He wants to create all CBA Final in XD..The most Towi/BUtet could get is 3rd position in world ranking.

Don't really matters whether they'll be #2 or #3 seed, they'll still need to go through MJ/CX in order to go to final.
I rather them seeded #4 and faces ZN/ZYL in SF. #3 seed will face the Danish pair of Laybourn/Kamilla in QF.....Butet usually have problem with Kamilla (AE final aside).

Indeed.....it's the luck of the draw that will determine whether #3 or #4 seed will meet the top/second seed. Not necessarily true also that #3 seed will face Laybourn/Rytter-Juhl in the QF as all the 16 pairs will be involved in a group stage first initially. 3 matches in a group if I am not wrong, before they proceed to the QF (with the top 2 pairs progressing).
So, Towi/Butet will need to play 6 times in order to win the Olympics Gold. 3 in Group Stage and another 3 from QF onwards.

With Tolyn is the biggest chance for ina to grab a medal at olympic and no chance for Ina Uber team to win Uber cup or even to Final, i think lyliana should not participate in the next uber final. Lyliana is better to just concentrate, safe her energy and more practice for better olympic preparation.
Moreover, lyliana chance with whoever her partner is in WD no better than Grey/Mel, Vi/nad or Anitya in winning a point in uber cup final. And it even better if PBSI give a chance for Suci/Della to gain experience in uber final for regeneration.

Badminton : Swiss Open Crowns Just the Start, Indonesia's Winning Duo Says
Ami Afriatni | March 19, 2012
A week after claiming the All England Open mixed doubles title, Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir continued their run of success by winning the Swiss Open Grand Prix Gold on Sunday.
The world’s fourth-ranked pair beat Sudket Prapakamol and Saralee Thoungthongkam of Thailand 21-16, 21-14 in the final at St. Jakobshalle in Basel, stamping its credentials as Indonesia’s top hope for an Olympic gold medal.
Top-seeded Tontowi and Liliyana were the only Indonesians in the finals after men’s singles shuttler Taufik Hidayat and men’s doubles pair Alvent Yulianto Chandra and Hendra Aprida Gunawan lost in Saturday’s semifinals.
“We’re a bit tired after the All England, but we didn’t want to waste our chance at winning this tournament,” Liliyana told the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) Web site. “This title is proof that we’re in top physical shape and we’ll try to maintain this until the Olympics.”
Tontowi and Liliyana face a busy spring before the Olympics begin on July 27. They are set to play in the Australian Open Grand Prix Gold in Sydney from April 3 to 8 before competing in the Asian Championships in Qingdao, China. They will defend their India Open Super Series title in New Delhi from April 24 to 29.
Liliyana’s schedule could become more packed if the PBSI picks her in its squad for the Uber Cup women’s team tournament finals in Wuhan, China, from May 20 to 27. She played women’s doubles with Shendy Puspa Irawati in qualifying last month.
Badminton legend Ivana Lie urged the PBSI not to overly tax the country’s medal hopefuls.
“[Liliyana] shouldn’t play in the Uber Cup finals, because I don’t think we could win the trophy anyway,” said Ivana, who won the 1985 Badminton World Cup mixed doubles with Christian Hadinata. “She’s a bit injury-prone, so it’d be better to give her and Tontowi proper time to rest before the Olympics.”
