    This will be another epic battles between teams.


    MS - Bao Vs LCW - 60%-40% to BCL. He has played the game extremely well under pressure and has upset TH in front of the scary homecroud.

    WS- Zhu Lin Vs Wang Chen - 70%-30% to Zhu Lin. Wang Chen has slowed down alot.

    MXD - Natsir/Widianto vs Gao/Zheng - This will be the only match that involved the Indonesians - 70%-30% to the Chinese.

    MD - Cai/Fu vs Zakry/Tazari - This will be another close match 60%-40% to the Chinese. But The Malaysians will give their all in their first ever SuperSeries Final.

    WD - Yang/Du Jing vs TingTing/Yang Wei or Donna Kellog/Gail Emms - Most likely an all Chinese affair who TingTing/Yang Wei will get the title again.

    Cai/Fu will go down as they did not play at all. KKK/TBH played even worst ...:crying:

    Agree with all the predictions. Looking back, LCW was lucky Lin Dan pulled out. Bao had to take out Gade and Taufik. But LCW is not someone you can underestimate. Bao has to be at his best.

    No matter how optimistic, I can't predict a Malaysian win in the MD.

    The Chinese WS are incredible. When the second-stringers were having trouble, XXF and ZN cleaned the table. When the top-enders slackened, depend on a second-stringer to take up the slack. Maybe it's because of their sheer numbers that inevitably one will get to the final (like the Malaysian MD).

    Good XD match tomorrow.

    BCL's perfomance against TH is really impressive. TH didn't show lack of motivation at all. he was playing at a fairly high level. if BCL can take down PGC, TH, and then LCW, that's pretty much the strongest opponents he has from overseas.

    True. Best from Denmark, Indonesia and Malaysia. One man against the rest of the world.

    Yep, Taufik was playing well in that game. I was a bit shocked at how well Bao was suddenly playing and I guess Taufik must have been too!

    hopefully Zakry and Tazari will create another high quality game tomorrow.... it is very good to see malaysia's MD performing well in recent tournaments... when Koo/Tan failed to win in semifinal, Zakry and Tazari stepped up to keep malaysian flag flying... Lee CW is re-gaining his confidence but Bao is in better form... so i think Bao has higher chance to win the title.... :)

    MS - Bao Vs LCW - 55-45 - Magical performance by Bao, he didn't look in top form yet managed to slay Taufik. LCW's performance drop started with loss to Bao in Sept, maybe it is here that he can turn the tables and return to form. Expect a 3 setter.

    WS- Zhu Lin Vs Wang Chen - 80-20 - Wang Chen barely survived against Petya, no more resistance to fight

    MXD - Natsir/Widianto vs Gao/Zheng - 48-52 - Chinese pair motivated for revenge, Indonesian pair motivated by the crowd. 3 setter very possible.

    MD - Cai/Fu vs Abd Latif/Tazari - 60-40. This MAS pair is talented but lack composure, will need a big lead to kill off CHN pair.

    WD - Yu Yang/Du Jing vs Zhao Tingting/Yang Wei - 35-65- Zhao Tingting/Yang Wei best CHN pair in terms of skill among current pairs, even better than Zhang Yawen/Wei Yili.

    Dun worry, we are putting less pressure on HK, INA and MAS players so that some of them will win ...... :D

    But one thing I have to concede, CHN players' mental strength is exemplary. Just look at Cai/Fu at SG Open Final. The confidence gained in SG Open win was put to very good use, and they have beaten MAS top two pairs back to back.

    The same goes for Bao.

    Matches start at 1:30 pm (Singapore/Malaysia time) tomorrow. But RTM1 only starting broadcast at 3 pm. Darn, and LCW's match is the second one. Well, hopefully, the WD match will drag for an hour and a half. Or maybe RTM will change their schedule.

    Yes, a Chinese clean sweep in Indonesia Open? That's going to be the biggest badminton miracle in recent years - especially that China has the track record of skipping IO (or no first class Chinese players entering to the tournament), perhaps for safety reason.

    fairuz/zakry have the chance to win!!:) because they are playing as underdog, so nothing to lose..;) they have the speed which is not shown at all by cai/fu in the match against kkk/tbh today.. if MAS keep on with their fighting spirit, winning is not impossible.. fu's smash seems not as powerful as when they played against kkk/tbh in all eng but cai yun played very well esp at the baseline..

    lcw vs bao should be depends on their perfomance tmr and see who is done less mistake.. it's hard to predict now...:confused:

    KKK/TBH showed their more superior speed once in a while in today's match but they underused it, allowing CY/FHF to attack most of the time. I doubt F/Z can do better in this aspect - at least not until they are getting more mature in their partnership and game playing (maybe by OG'08).
