ok. late but here are my predictions: BCL vs. LCW - tough to predict. this would be a very significant match to both players. LCW needs to prove to the world that he can win a tournament after a period of lows, and most importantly, he need to prove that he can win it without Li Mao on his side. BCL also need to prove to the world that he too can win one. and able to beat the best of the world while he is doing it. but as we can see that Bao has matured and is in tip-top form. so i am going to pick Bao. Zhu Lin vs. Wang Chen - i am pick Wang Chen here. tough pick but i think Zhu Lin is still too young and she will not do much other than gain some more valueable experience against a much more seasoned player like Wang Chen. Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng vs. Zakry/Fairuzizuan - i think it is time for me to remember how to spell Z/F's names. as i think we will see more of them in the next couple of years. however, as of today, CY/FHF are still the top pair in the world and they seemed to have worked on other aspects of the game aside from pure smashes after smashes. they played defense, drives and placement just as well as the Malaysians. so CY/FHF it will be. Nova/Lilyana vs. Zheng/Gao - tough call again. this is really 50/50 in my mind. Nova/Lilyana didn't play too bad at all in the SO and IO. as for Zheng/Gao, they are still very formidable. but for the sake of some diversity, i will pick the INA here... Du/Yu vs. ZTT/YW - picking the younger pair just for the heck of it. it would still be a good match to watch.
