    Top 4 seeds are in the Semi. Need I say more?

    However, it has all the making of fixed games again. Let's hope it won't happen because it's anybody's game now.

    But let's say hypothetically INA borrow China's tactic and throws a game tomorrow, can we blame them?

    What if the Chinese throws the game first and INA simply follows suit?

    That will be everyone's worst nightmare. Maybe I am just thinking too much.

    CHN will most definitely fix all their matches tomorrow...most probably XZB/ZYM will be given a W/O from GL/ZB cos they need the points more...

    Na... i dun think there will be fixed games...

    the coach should be aware that all four teams now have equal chance of winning....

    all are equally strong and anything can happen it on depend on their form on that day

    I am not sure like that..bcause XZB/ZYM not easy to beat either FlaVi or NoLyn so far and other reason is Yawen will fight against Taiwanese pair is SF, so it be big risk for CHN team like in French Open...

    In my prediction...GL/ZB fixed go to Final match...
    Fortunately...the schedule CHN matches on first then followed INA matches...so INA just wait and see whether any Fixed game on CHN matches or not...If it would be...I think it better INA also fix to FlaVi go to Final against GL/ZB...:cool:

    I'm a Chinese, but still very happy to see the INA pair won. I really hate to see LYB kept using that kind of game fixing. Widianto/Natsir played 3 tough games in SF and still able to beat a well rested ZB/GL. They really deserve it.

    Yup.
    When the Nova/Butet - Flandy/Vita went to a rubber-set, I thought, "...man, they're REALLY up against it now..." :eek::(:(
    I think it was good that neither of the Indonesian XD Pairs conceded walkover, and that they actually went out to play for a win. :):):)

    You know...
    (1) I think XZB is a fabulous doubles player with good temperament/composure. I actually like him as a player...:D
    (2) Chen Hong is my fav MS player. Resilient and 'big' enough to lose with sporting grace...:D:D

    BUT...
    They've both been involved in conceding (shady) walkovers in the past two weeks!!! :eek::crying::mad:
    What gives? :eek::confused::mad:
    Someone behind the scenes is messing-up World Badminton... :mad::mad::mad:

    The semi-final of the mixed double match from two Indonesia team was fantastic. Both teams from Indonesia put up their best efforts and the crowd in Hong Kong QE stadium loves it and respect for their sportmanship (No WO).
    For this reason alone the Indonesia team deserve to win this Mixed Double Championship...
