    No doubt Simon is a very skilled player in the mould of

    Taufik, but to expect him to beat Bao is very optimistic.

    sorry if my earlier post was crude... but there is no doubt in my mind that he will win because of mental strength. most young players after losing either 1st or 2nd set to top players, they will bottle in the rubber game. but simon has proved his mental strength in his wins over shon sm & p gade. that is why i think that he will beat bao. i rate simon to win at 75-25.

    for sony v lin dan i put it at 45-55. lin dan has good attacking play which is very nice to watch and he has matured in the last few months. sony is a very solid player but has been somewhat inconsistent.

    I think sony and simon are not strong enough to defeat LinDan and BaoChunLai.Chinese players will win in direct two sets.

    Maybe China learnt from being fined for the World Championships.
    If the World Number 1 were to lose easily to a team mate there would be more uproar.

    This is only speculation though. I don't know. It may well be that Bao was the better player on the day. I hope he was. If China wasn't known for doing this sort of thing though, we wouldn't be talking about it.

    when looking at the score between Chen Hong and Bao you can easily exclude an" Agreement" in the game. Because only three from China will go to the olympics and that makes a big fight between Bao,Lin,Xia and Chen Hong...like in Denmark where Gade,Rasmussen,Kaldau,Boesen and Jonassen fights for their right to go to the olympics..

    Well, if there are more than three chinese players in the top 16 on 1st may 2004, the coaches can choose the three players that go to the olympics (they don't need to follow world ranking order).

    So I should think the staff's objective is that Chen Hong, Xia Xuanze, Lin Dan, Bao Chunlai and Chen Yu should all be in the top 16, so that they can choose the three which are on the best form before the olympics...

    I think that's more to do with Chen's recent injury and Bao's "warm up" and upset defeat in "city game".

    Even though, Chen's injury was listed as "not serious", but still might be lack of form recently. On the other hand, Bao was enjoying "practice" (even though, might not be very intensive) and also got the "anger" from the defeat against Lin Dan. He might realized if he does not improve now, he will be further away from the his chance 1 yr later.

    For the so-call "speculation" from IBF, I really don't think CHN will care too much. Once ur on top, ppl always say this and that to bring u down. CHN is not new for this, they been "under the light bulb" for yrs and I don't think they will even care, even if Chen really lose with even fewer points.

    This is the chance that Bao can revenge his loss to Lin in the final of City Games lately. Also a possible fix by Chinese official for Bao to gain more points? No disrespect of Bao here, I like to see Bao advance too.

    Forgot to mention that Lin is probably tired out by his last 3 setters too.

    Lin and Bao met last week at China's City Games.

    Just before the match, Bao said Lin was a better player than him, because Lin's always playing with confident. Lin fears nobody. Whie Lin said Bao's the tallest among his teammates, but himself(Lin) was eager to play with him.

    Finally, Lin beat Bao 15:9, 15:13 convincely.

    Besides winning the mens's single title at city games, Lin helped his city badminton team win the team title, and Bao helped his city win the 6th place.

    Anyway, Bao CL won the doubles title with Zheng Bo in the men's double event. They defeated Sang Yang and other decent pairs.

    I have seen Lin Dan play, he has very nice and convincing strokes, very stylish but effective.

    His trademark is that he will kneel down and scream "I am the best" in mandarin when he wins. I am not entirely sure if he still does this or not.

    He is very confident, that is for sure.
