    MEN'S SINGLES
    Ronald Susilo
    vs Kendrick Lee Yen Hui -- an all-Singaporean final for once...and I am betting on Ronald to clinch his first title since the 5* Japan Open 2004.

    MEN'S DOUBLES
    Michael Logosz/Robert Mateusiak vs Hendra A. Gunawan/Joko Riyadi (MATCH OF THE DAY) -- probably the last match of the finals since Robert Mateusiak is also involved in the XD final. Hendra/Joko need to win this one to prove that they are ready to step up a level!

    WOMEN'S SINGLES
    Xu Huaiwen vs Maria Kristin Yulianti -- Maria has done well in the past few days, with two notable scalps: over Pi Hongyan and Petra Overzier (bronze-medallist at the WC this year). It will be a perfect week if she can beat the German tomorrow. However, I still think that Xu is superior!

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES
    Rani Mundiasti/Endang Nur Sugianti vs Jiang Yanmei/Li Yujia -- a perfect chance for Rani/Endang to win their first title also. They stand a good chance since Li Yujia is likely to be exhausted after playing in the XD final.

    MIXED DOUBLES
    Robert Mateusiak/Nadiezda Kostiuczyk vs Hendri Kurniawan Saputra/Li Yujia -- the first match of the final...and I hope it goes to 3 sets :D The Singapore pair has the edge and I hope they win!

    Good to hear only one pair of pelatnas failed to reach the final. Devin/Tetty is still a young pair. They will improve if they continue to work hard. Maria Kristin is a big surprise here. Seems like she is better than the other two. The other two WS of Indonesia seems to have reached the ceiling. Let's hope tomorrow is a start of good career for Maria.

    Finals schedule and time of play..

    ..for those interested in watching the matches via live webcast, the Finals will start at 12 pm GER local time:
    http://www.bitburger-open.de/en/index2.html

    **For those in the U.S. or Alaska region and would like to watch, the time difference between GER and U.S. Pacific time is 9 hrs(or just add 3 hrs ahead). Which means it'll be 3 am PDT(U.S.)
    However it will be broadcasted @ 2 am PDT/MST because tonight @ 2 am, we will move the time back by 1 hr(daylight saving time). So set your clock and alarm(if you're planning to get some sleep first)..;):)

    Try this: Open windows media player
    Press ctrl+U and type in mms://134.96.211.36/bbo

    The stream will play in windows media player separately from your web browser and you should be able to adjust the screen size
