    Awesome, TH vs PG (Should be a good game) is on Court 2! Hopefully the livestream is good for it.

    MS SF
    Taufik Hidayat [4] vs Peter Gade [2] -- Peter should take this one.

    MD SF
    Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan
    [1] vs Tao Jiaming/Sun Junjie -- Kido/Hendra to progress to another Final and probably challenge Koo/Tan for the first time this year.

    WD SF
    Ma Jin/Wang Xiaoli
    [5] vs Nitya Krishinda Maheswari/Greysia Polii [8] -- Nitya/Grace had 2 tiring matches in the past 2 days. I think the CHN pair will prevail.

    XD SF
    Hendra A. Gunawan/Vita Marissa [7] vs Tao Jiaming/Zhang Yawen [8] -- depends on which side of AG will appear in the court today. This pair can perform well to beat Zheng/Ma and Laybourn/Rytter-Juhl, only to fail to Songphon/Kunchala in the Japan SS SF. So, I don't know really. I hope AG/Vita can win a first SS title :cool:

    He Hanbin/Yu Yang [5] vs Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir [2] -- this will be the INA's pair last chance for a SS title before they are split up for good. Let's see whether they can perform well. But, He/Yu have the edge.

    I am really hoping that Peter would win his SF and verse either Chen Jin or Lin Dan in the finals. He's been playing very well and has great support from the crowd. I am hoping for a Peter vs. Lin Dan final. :D

    2009 French Badminton Open - Semi-Finals (Match of the Day)

    .
    Talking about this match between Taufik and Peter: Both players are equally popular with the French Badminton fans. There would be equal support for both of them. This match would be considered as the 'Match of the Day'.

    It is unfortunate that PG and Taufik should cancel out each other. It would have been great if they meet the Chinese in the semis first. Either config doesn't matter.

    Looking at the lineup of play, yes tv court should be court 2 because Pi's game is on court 2.

    Looking quickly at the matches..

    I can see 3 potential "doozer" matches:
    WL vs. YJ
    DJ & YY vs. CS & ZYL
    MK & HS vs. SJJ & TJM

    The rest of the matches are quite interesting..

    As for the LD vs. CJ match...hmm, could be another "let's fold 'em up early & save the energy for the Final" ending...
