    Default So will Taufik Hidayat finally win his first Super series title on "home soil" ?

    So Taufik has reached yet another, SS final. However, it is well known that even though he is a former Olympic and World Champion, he has never actually won a SS event.
    Taufik was the favourite to win last week, in Odense following the withdrawal of Peter Gade due to injury. In the final he came up against Jan Jorgensen, Jan was clearly inspired by the home crowd and managed a narrow victory.

    So what is his chance of clinching his first SS title this time out in Paris ?

    Well, Taufik is up against the 8th seed, Joachim Persson. Joachim is a former world top 10 player, however in recent times, he has suffered a severe dip in form, and ranking. He has played some of the International series events this year, to get some of his confidence back, and at the same time, increase his ranking. Joachim's form can be really unpredictable, and he can sometimes let his nerves get the better of him, two examples of which, are the Japan Open SS 2008 SF, where he was up against Lee Chong Wei, the match only lasted 20 minutes, as Lee won 21-6 21-4. Another example is the All England SS 2009 QF where he lost to Lin Dan, in a match in which Joachim was completly outplayed. However this week, he seems a completly diffferent player, as he has beat Du Pengyu and Peter Gade. However will his nerves and the fact that he has played some very tough matches this week be all too much, and fall at the final hurdle.

    For Taufik this is like a home tournament, the French fans love watching him play, and I am sure if you asked a French badminton fan, who they would like to win they would say Taufik. (unless there was a French player with a good chance of winning)

    So can Taufik win his first SS title on "home soil" ? Or will Joachim spring a suprise ?

    Please share your thoughts below

    I think Taufik could do it this time. Persson played a good match against Gade, but he seemed to have problems with his back at the end of the game.

    Some additional information:

    In the previous meetings between the two, Taufik has a 3-1 record, the last time they met, was last week in Odense, Taufik winning 21-15 21-19. However the other three occasions went to three rather close games.

    really hard to believe sometimes that TH still yet to land a SS title.

    hope TH will win tomorrow..

    if not , since he is a buddy of LCW, maybe they can swap, since LCW got so many SS trophies. but no WC or OG gold.

    i think TH, (if he puts his best into this), will take the french open quite comfortably. Last weeks match, in the denmark open, was rather easy i would say.
    Hope he tries hard and takes this SS to finally put the 'no SS' behind him.

    thats what I thought last week before he played JOJ, but Jan beat Taufik 21-19 21-19, maybe tomorrow Taufik will be able to do it, but you never know, Persson, could spring a suprise. However I feel it is 70:30 in favour of Taufik.

    base on his current performance, his chance to win his SS title more than 60%...
    but anything can happen.

    Saw the Boonsak match? On that current performance I would say 90% sure he'll win.

    Wow... it's thrilling me inside.

    I really hope Taufik can win today, it almost feel like how Federer never win French Open before 09 [really different case actually but I feel the same. ]

    All the best for Taufik, the lone ranger!

    Given the technical analysis by this thread, I'll go for TH to win his first title. Hope there won't be surprise.
    Taufik proved that he deserve to have at least one SS title. Only luck that keep the SS title away from him, opposite case was that luck already helped him in winning OG and WC .

    Taufik will definitely win this one, the French title is already in his hands, it will be 3rd time lucky for Taufik
    I can't see him losing to JP!
