    Please post progress of matches here.

    First of all, let me confirm that KKK/CCM actually lost to Riyadi/??? in the earlier round and not as widely reported.

    For today's matches, I somehow don't see any interesting prospects. I normally hold the view that semifinal matches are more interesting, but this year's Indonesia Open finals are even worse than usual, downright anti-climatic.

    XD, WD and WS feel like mismatches from the outset, although (1) Zhang/Gao seem beatable nowdays, (2) Yang/Zhang have kept on winning but showing chinks in the armour at Singapore Open and (3) we will see how Park Joo Bong's girl fare with the Chinese elite.

    Even the MS and MD are not that appetizing as finals. Somehow Chen Hong does not fire the imagination like Lin, Bao or Peter Gade does, but if Chen plays at his best level, it will be a good match. Also, Luluk/Alven seem unstoppable. The MD event is the worst affected when the Danes skip the tournament, and it shows. Anyhow, like before, if Cai/Fu can play at their best level, ... (Note: Both Chen and Cai/Fu have not been playing at their best recently)

    Another factor to note is the wind factor. A lot of reports and players' comments site the wind (not just draft, wind). I think it accounts to more than a few upsets. Having the tournament in a tennis stadium is wrong from the start. Can't they find some place better?

    Xie seems like to giving her opponent ducks. she did that to Camilla in the Danish Open...
