    Jo/Greysia will be having a match against TPE pair, who have beaten Lilyana/Vita so many times. I hope this won't be the end of their road in this tournament.

    Meanwhile, INA uncles will go against Luluk/Alvent. Dunno whom to support...
    And there'll be another derby between Koo KK/Tan BH vs Fairuz/Zakry. I pick MAS pair to win!

    And... Sony vs (using BCers term) Mr. Yoyo... Since Mr. Yoyo has beaten Bao CL today, it's hard to predict. But still, I want Sony to win.

    And hopefully Nova/Lilyana can beat Xie XB/Zhang YW tomorrow. That way, it'll be a Mission Accomplished for INA XD mission in this ABC.

    Don't forget the most important match and the reason why PBSI sending out their full XD contingents: Nova/Butet vs XZB/ZYW.

    If INA pair can stop them here, China's XD won't be going to OG.

    Yup, almost forget 'bout that.
    And fot the bolded sentence: they will be going, but (hopefully) there'll only be 2 pairs to carry the task.;)

    Hehe, yeah, I was only referring to XZB/ZYW (well, technically they're still going to OG ...just not participating in XD) :D

    At any rate, wish best of luck to all INA and MAS shuttlers in their match tomorrow.
    May the best win. And may INA shuttlers become the best.

    Indonesia boleh!

    Matches involving Team INA:

    Mixed Doubles QF
    Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir [1] vs Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen [5] (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- undoubtedly, the thriller match...expect fireworks and rubber-sets....Nova/Butet have a slight edge.

    Hendri Kurniawan Saputra/Li Yujia vs Flandy Limpele/Vita Marissa [4] -- a case of 2 down, 2 to go for Flandy/Vita...slightly tougher task tomorrow against the experienced Singaporean pair, but, there's no reason why they shouldn't win.

    Anggun Nugroho/Endang Nursugianti vs Fang Chieh-Min/Cheng Wen-Hsing -- Anggun/Endang have surprised many in going this far, and it will be a major bonus if they are to beat Fang/Cheng tomorrow.

    Men's Singles QF
    Sony Dwi Kuncoro [5] vs Mohd Hafiz Hashim -- a glimmer of hope for Sony as two tough opponents lost surprisingly today, including the opponent he was supposed to face. I think he has an excellent chance to reach the Final.

    Women's Doubles QF
    Vita Marissa/Lilyana Natsir [4] vs Ha Jung Eun/Kim Min Jung -- one concern will be Vita/Butet's stamina, as they have to play in XD earlier. However, I think they should beat the Korean no 2 pair.

    Jo Novita/Greysia Polii vs Chien Yu-Chin/Cheng Wen-Hsing [3] -- a pat on the back for mission accomplished in terms of qualifying for the Olympics for Jo/Grace. It will be a major bonus if they can beat the solid CT pair.

    Men's Doubles QF
    Luluk Hadiyanto/Alvent Yulianto [4] vs Candra Wijaya/Nova Widianto -- one SF at hand and Lius Pongoh must be delighted at Candra/Nova's performance here in Johor. Surely, Candra Wijaya will be part of the Thomas Cup team...as for his partner, either Nova Widianto or Flandy Limpele could be drafted in too. However, I think Luluk/Alvent will progress tomorrow.

    this ABC is a weird one.
    a lawyer trainee beats a #2
    a yoyo beats a #3
    an uncle beat a younger chinese

    That yo-yo king is scary. Who knew he could eliminate BCL. In typical yo-yo fashion, I would not be surprised at all if he was hammered by Sony... or hammer Sony. Who knows with our yo-yo friend. :rolleyes::D

    Malaysia BOLEH...!!!
    I expect a "massacre" for Msia team today except the match between KKK/TBH vs Fuzzy.

    Hafiz vs Sony (20-80):
    I dont see how Mr.Yoyo could repeat his performance against BCL yesterday to win over Sony today because Sony's style of play is more defensive n rally. To beat Sony, Mr.Yoyo has to be very patience and good stamina but that's what Mr.Yoyo lacks of (stamina).

    WCH vs CJ (40-60):
    With OG08 slot at stake for CJ, he will be on fire to win this match. I expect a close match but CJ will prevail. I'm still proud of our uncle wong :p

    KKK/TBH vs Fuzzy (N/A): whoever wins, Msia Boleh...!!! :)

    LWW/CTF vs Korean (49-51):
    Our uncles always have difficulties against the kimchi. Rexy should start feeding Gingseng to our uncles :D

    WMC vs WangLin (40-60):
    A QF for WMC is an achievement. Let's celeberate :rolleyes:


    Msia Bolehhh..........!!!!!!!!!!

    Apparently, Jo Novita/Greysia Polii are still 1 place short of the Olympic Qualification, since Ekaterina Ananina/Anastasia Ruskikh (currently at no 16) also qualify for the QF and they have a chance to enter the Semi-Final. Only if the Russian pair lost today, then, Jo Novita/Grace Polii can qualify for the Olympics, otherwise, the INA pair has to beat Chien Yu-Chin/Cheng Wen-Hsing in the QF.

    Well, let's hope the TPE pair are too tired after the marathon session with Wong/Chin.
