    You have a perfect prediction, but I'd say the % were done even better. At least one Msian won in BC, that's you based on solid knowledge. But on other hand, I am not sure you were Msian just based on your predictions :D

    Try next time for non-Msian players, see how well you do and we will find out if you are as one of the best :)

    btw, do you PAW?

    I'd say they did okay because some of them like WCH and HH were not supposed to be at this round, a plus for them to get this far. WMC and uncles were 50-50, lacking consistency to start with. The only surprise was the absence of LCW in QF. The fact that everyone felt the losses so terrible was because they were done on home-ground. Without home support, the scores might be farther apart. But I'm not sure if home ground has advantages sometimes. Look at CO 07, Chn players took heavy losses, but they did better elsewhere.

    So don't worry, time will soon heal all the wounds and tell that the players are great once again :)

    Honestly speaking, I am more familiar with Msia players only. I kinda know their style of playing. Of coz, i'm Msian and nothing could take that away :rolleyes:

    I predict CJ and Kimchi MD to win the title :eek: No, I dont/never PAW. I dont know how it works :D

    No heart to go JB watch SF tmr coz no LCW nor Boonsak :mad:

    You're Msian for sure, I was kidding. But sometimes it's hard to separate what's on one's mind from what's in the heart. If you miss SF, will you still be seeing Loh and others, maybe at F? I'd guess fewer BCers would show up for any gathering now.

    Even if LD beated LHI 21:0, 21:0 this time, it doesn't mean anything to previous matches.

    LCW beated CJ 21:8, 21:8 in France. Does that mean there is anything fishy in AE08 SF? Or HK06 SF when LCW almost lost to CJ?

    LD is half-level higher than LHI. So when LD played great but LHI just OK, we see scores like this; But that doesn't mean LHI cannot win when he is in great form while LD played just OK.

    Most Msian BCers are sleeping. You might have better chance later. What's the rush, getting a new racket?

    Do you have any idea why LHI has been off so much and so long lately since KO 08 and MO 08? Is he going back into retirement or in/out of it now? Too strange for me to figure out :confused:

    the point is LHI seem to be in great form at KO, lousy forms after that in 2008 LOL.

    I would even go to say LD was toying around with LHI at 08 KO and backfired because LD didn't weigh in the biased judging enough until it was too late.

    If LHI got knock out in first round twice earlier this year, i wouldn't say LHI is only 1/2 level below LD, more like 0.85673 level below LD:p

    It could be that LHI was fired up by home-support in KO 08. His play was near perfect, not seen again :confused::rolleyes:

    Overall it's a good day for INA. Except a 'little' upset as our uncles defeated Luluk/Alvent and Jo/Greysia lost.
    INA first mission has been completed.
    Now 2 more missions await: grab the XD and MD ABC titles.
    Another mission: MS title, is complimetary.:eek:

    The possibility of losing Jo/Greysia from competing in OG's WD is a pretty significant blow :(.
