    WS:
    Xie Xinfang vs Wong Mew Choo.... Have to be realistic, Xie Xingfang to take this one, unless she has a bad hair day and play badly like in WC and 2nd game against Tine. Our Choo Choo is tired from playing her own European mirror image, not to mention she has problems adapting her play against tall opponents.....

    Pi Hongyan vs Zhang Ning..... I wish for the opposite, but CHN's evergreen "insurance policy" will ensure that the WS title is safe despite the fall of all of CHN's new WS squad. Pi had used up her afterburner against Lu Lan.

    MD:
    Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae vs Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun.... Another classic example of mismatched pairs, Koreans have not beaten Cai/Fu the same way as Kido/Setiawan hasn't beaten Koo/Tan. And I do not expect that to change .......

    Tadashi Ohtsuka/Keita Matsuda vs Tan Fook Choong/Wan Wah Lee ..... Excellent performance from Ohtsuka/Matsuda, who I rate better than Ikeda/Sakamoto. But even with Professor Park on board, the journey ends here.

    WD:
    Jo Novita/Greysia Polii vs Zhao TingTing/Yu Yang.... INA pair can hold their head up high with their return to form. I am just hoping for Jo/Greysia not to drop down on court from sheer exhaustion, couldn't imagine how long it would take to finish last night's match on old scoring system. CHN pair don't deserve to go through, but thanks to team orders, they will.

    Zhang Yawen/Wei Yili vs Chien Yu Chin/Cheng Wen Hsing ..... CHN pair won't make the same mistake they did against Wong/Chin last week. TPE crack pair can match them in front court play, but Wei Yili's power will prove too much for TPE defence.

    XD:
    Flandy/Vita Marissa vs Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Ryter.... INA pair should pressure Kamilla a lot, otherwise Flandy's stamina won't last ....

    Zheng Bo/Gao Ling vs Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen.... Return of the smiling assassin, besides, her younger opponent has to do double duty .....

    MS:
    Lin Dan vs Bao Chunlai ..... might as well not play this one, Lin Dan is way superior

    Lee Chong Wei vs Chen Jin ...... 50-50, it depends on how LCW plays with consideration to his knee injury. Either way, he has maintained consistency.

    French Super Series 2007: What we are hoping for the Mens Singles Final ?

    I am hoping that Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei would be in the Mens Singles Final.

    What can be better than to watch the World MS No.1 and 2 playing each other ??? :):):)

    I think Chong Wei will advance after watching the Denmark Open SF between him and Chunlai. I didn't see anything that hampered Chong Wei movement during that match, he still was very fast moving around the court until the match was over. Bao basically played more aggressive and initiated lots of attacks in game 3 and won. Bao played very passive in game 1 and was not able to read Chong Wei shots.
    What I am saying is, if there's any injury, it's insignificant to stop Chong Wei from playing his usual games hence I have high hope that Chong Wei shall win over Chen Jin with his current form. Man, he is FAST!
    And if Bao can play the way he played against Chong Wei, I don't see why he can't beat Lin Dan. Bao is very good.

    finals.

    'ngo choooiiii khorrrr leeeeiiii.... not impossible that LCW and Wong Fei Hong team can go final. Just do more tai chi, sure can wan.:D I didn't expect CTF/LWW to go through in qtr but the beat the odds. Well done.

    Too bad KKK/TBH lost. Looks like Park Joo Bong did his home work by beating the msian team twice. A great coach indeed. He always like to say 'concentrate2' to CTF/LWW during their tournament days. Maybe that will revive the pairs concentration and go all the way. Pray lah. lum moh.... lum moh.. lum moh... hehehe...:D
