    Predictions:

    MS: LD vs LCW: a close one definetly the most antcipated match. I reckon that LD will just take it, maybe LD tried to conserve energy last night, and played passively, i am sure LD could turn on the really explosive pace of shot and movement from 08 and 09 if he wishes. LCW hasnt had a hard match so far, which isnt always a good thing. LCW and LD are far superior to the rest of the field, and i feel that LCW could crumble under all the pressure.

    WS: WYH vs CSC: Going for WYH in this match as i already picked her to win, suprised at CSC. She has played really well recently, but still i feel that WYH will have to much.

    MD: Cai/Fu vs Ko/Yoo: Cai/Fu started slowly in this tournament, but seem to have found their form now, Ko/Yoo have been great this week, but if Lee/Jung cant beat Cai/Fu, then i doubt Ko/Yoo can.

    WD: Wang/Yu vs Tian/Zhao: Boring :p on paper this is easy to predict, and you would go for Wang/Yu, but you never know what LYB is thinking. I dont think that Zhao/Tian need the ranking points too much, but LYB might think otherwise. Then again he might let them play out a fair match, which in that case Wang/Yu will win.

    XD: Adcock/Bankier vs Zhang/Zhao: Going for the shock result and saying that Adcock/Bankier will pull it off, the way they have dismissed the other pairs so far has been impressive and they seem to get better with each match. Last time the pairs played it was really close 22-24 in the 3rd. With home support and Zhao YL being tired from all the matches she has played this week. Hopefully Bankier will be as sharp as yesterday and they will win. :D


    Out of interest, is Tian Q and Zhao YL the only player that LYB is allowing to play two events ?

    They should pull Alan Hansen out of the Match of the Day studio just to say "composure" with a Scottish accent when the XD is played :D:cool:

    I really, really hope that MAS fans don't drown in their overconfidence. Past matches means nothing once LCW and LD steps onto court.
