    Taufik has found his love of playing the game again, he just wanted to stay in the game the longest possible.::)

    In this FO, he lost all the first set, this can also due to the slow warm up as winter approaching.

    Haiya, actually I still can't believe he can upset LCW and reach to final as it was very hard for him to defeat lower rank player like Koukal in early round.. But,, based on second and third set when he met Choongwei, I think he has more mentality than LCW,, and it's supported by his good stamina..

    That's not very polite....

    Hoping for a win by Taufik....or at least a really spectacular match by both of them. Both are experiencing a revival after OG08....

    I am afraid if they dun like it they shouldn't be all over me. Is my democratic right. I dun like Chong Wei and is my democratic right to do so. No one and I mean no one can force me to like the guy.


    Is my democratic right

    Peter Gade 33 years old
    Taufik Hidayat 28 years old

    Experience is the key

    Keep smoking Taufik , make your body relax before a game
    And lets smack Peter in this tournament

    Wohaaaaaaaaa

    My prediction will be as follow:

    55% Taufik.Hidayat.[7] vs 45% Peter.Gade.[8]
    75% Xingfang.Xie.[2] vs 25% Lin.Wang
    70% M.Kido/H.Setiawan.[1] vs 30% Yun.Cai/Chen.Xu.[6]
    65% Jing.Du/Yang.Yu.[1] vs 35% E.H.Chin/P.T.Wong.[4]
    55% Hanbin.He/Yang.Yu.[2] vs 45% A.Clark/D.Kellogg.[4]


    The best match would be TH vs PG; two best deceptive and tricky players with a rare and pure talents. Whoever has better stamina will win this match. They might not be #1 or #2 in the world, but their names will guarantee bringing lots of badminton fans in the world to watch this most anticipated match on this tournament.

    I hope MAS WD will create an upset (and a miracle) here. I'm just tired of seeing CHN WD domination.

    After beating INA XD, ENG pair has a good chance to beat CHN pair and hopefully it will happen for real.

    MK/HS are in their top form and it's hard for any pairs to topple them. I just hope MK/HS are not experiencing fatique after winning many games in the last few months. Whoever play better on the net will decide the winner of this match.

    I don't really care that much about WS department anymore, after MKY and TR lost their matches, LOL. :)

    Very powerful china may be for 3 decade
    Some little break when Susi Susanti and Mia Audina played for INA

    After that ehmm noone can beat CHina again
    To much good player in China team

    Wang Lin
    Lu Lan
    Xi Xien Fang
    Wang Yi Han
    Zhu lin
    Zhang Ning

    They are all dominated the super series in 2008

    MIXED DOUBLES
    Anthony Clark/Donna Kellogg [4] vs He Hanbin/Yu Yang [2] -- the CHN pair has the edge.

    WOMEN'S SINGLES
    Wang Lin vs Xie Xingfang [2] -- youth vs experience here and I think Xie will take the title.

    MEN'S SINGLES
    Taufik Hidayat
    [7] vs Peter Gade [8] -- this should be a classic and I hope Taufik put all his experience to win his first SS title in Europe.

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES
    Du Jing/Yu Yang
    [1] vs Wong Pei Tty/Chin Ee Hui [4] -- the MAS pair has been on a roll now and they could yet create an upset again today. However, the Olympic Champions have a slight edge.

    MEN'S DOUBLES
    Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan
    [1] vs Cai Yun/Xu Chen [6] -- in this last match of the Final, I hope the INA pair will go all out from the start. Under normal circumstances, they should take this one home.

    Nobody said you had to like him but you should be quiet. You are always offending people.

    To dislike a particular player is understandable...to hate an entire nation though? That shows something about your character.

    I think it still a part of democratic if u just say I don't like particular nation..as long as u have understandable reasons behind it, and u don't say sarcastic words towards people of that particular nation in sports forum like this :cool:

    Huh? Don't lump all Indonesian with those paid protester that have nothing to do in their live other than marching aimlessly on the street, yelling ridiculous slogans and trying to stir troubles.
