    2009 All England

    Taufik Hidayat is seeded 7 in this tournament.
    Round of 32: He will be facing Hsieh Yu Hsin [TPE].
    Round of 16: Chetan Anand [IND] or Andrew Smith [ENG]

    Since Taufik cut himself loose from the Indonesian Badminton Association to become an independent professional player, everyone is asking this question:
    Can Taufik Hidayat win the Mens Singles title this time?

    All the Best to Taufik Hidayat as an independent professional player.

    I would be happy if he can win LCW during me semis if they meet each other. And if he win over LCW in the semis.. i would root for him to win AE.

    I'd give my vote to him if LCW wasn't there.

    But to get real, Taufik is unpredictable.I hope he'd prove something to us.

    Man to watch this tournament is TH. Not Lindan or LCW.. as many wants him to win. LCW would also want to win his 1st AE title.

    2009 All England: Taufik to face Lee Chong Wei at the Semi-Final?

    .
    This would be a most interesting match: TH versus LCW at the Semi-Finals.

    But LCW and LD are there so, it may be just a dream for TH... or he may persevere and win... my prediction will depend on how TH perform in the first few matches... His match to defeat PG should be an interesting one... If he indeed beat PG, I may give a vote for him :D

    It's not just Taufik Hidayat or Lee Chong Wei.
    Everyone, from Henri Hurskainen to Lin Dan, wants to win it.

    The question is: Who among them has what it takes to win the title?

    I'd like LCW to take every seed as tough.Be it Lin Dan, TAufik etc.
    Win every game, Lee Chong Wei.
    2 sets all to finals.

    In term of sheer technique skill, taufik is better than LCW with his net play, power smash and deception. Question is whether he actually trained all the way for the past 3 month. If he somehow manage to get to 90% of peak physical fitness, I think he can beat both LCW and lindan. But the thing is, nobody ever knows when it comes to the laid back taufik. May turn out to be a disappointment as well, losing tamely to Peter.
