    MEN'S SINGLES
    Lin Dan vs Taufik Hidayat (MATCH OF THE DAY) -- no doubt about it, the match of the finals. Taufik is currently on form and if he is really determined to win, he should prove it on the court!

    MEN'S DOUBLES
    Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya vs Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong -- the ex Olympic champion is also on form and they should beat the scratch Malaysian pairing.

    WOMEN'S SINGLES
    Zhang Ning vs Xie Xing Fang

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES
    Gao Ling/Huang Sui vs Wei Yili/Zhang Yawen

    MIXED DOUBLES
    Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir vs Flandy Limpele/Vita Marissa -- an all-Indonesian Final for once...and the world no 1 should take home their 5th title of the year.

    agree with all of your predictions but I'll be happier if KKK/TBH will be able to beat the seniors....Taufik is on fire....he should beat LD....

    have been waiting for this showdown for quite a while since we only saw a partial game in the HKO. this will probably be the talk of the finals. well, for me, my heart goes to LD, but the money goes to TH to win the finals.

    WS
    are we getting bored by typing only 5 letters i.e. XXF and ZN? :D
    XXF should win the JO from ZN. of the times they played, XXF has won quite convincingly and expect her to continue that tomorrow.

    MD
    young vs old? sorry Malaysian fans, the TG/CW partnership will be too strong for the Malaysian pair. just look what they did to CY/FHF - they were decimated! :crying: :crying: :crying:

    WD
    this should be a close contest but money, and heart, goes to GL/HS

    MXD
    my new love for cutie Natsir :)) ) forces me to vote for NW/LN to take the title :D :eek:

    I think LD will win this time. He is the most consistent player so far and deserved the title, although I am neither his fan nor TH fan. I would be jubilating if msian young pair win tomorrow. They have nothing to lose actually.

    My predictions

    MS: Taufik will win in 2 sets, or Lin Dan will win in 3 sets, if the game is tight, Lin Dan will win as he has better stamina than Taufik
    MD: Tony/Candra will win in 2 sets
    XD: Flandy/Vita will win in 3 sets, I admire Flandy as an excellent doubles player, especially in XD.
    WS: XXF will win again
    WD: Gao/Huang will win

    surprised

    i m not surpised CY/FH lose to tony/candra but surprised they lose quite easily.they are no 1 pair in the world n lose that match easily.are all the apirs now weaker than the past generation?imagine if park joo bong-kim moon soo,rexy-ricky,yongbo n his partner,soon kit-kim hock still young n play.but honestly for indonesians,i m glad if they can produce great pair like rexy-ricky n candra-tony/sigit again.for KKK-TBH,if keep playing together,they can improve more since they still young

    my prediction

    MS
    Taufik will win this match i think he has high motivation now, lin dan will try to prove he's better than taufik but i think that will becomes burden for him

    MD
    Surely Tony/chandra they are in the best form now

    XD
    Nova/butet will have tough game now i think vita will prove than she's better than butet

    WS/WD
    This is boring match, chinese too dominant in here

    Yes, I have watched most of the recent double players, the malay pairs, chinese pairs, danish one they need a level to improve. every pairs have their own problems, that is why sometimes KKK won , sometimes CAI/FO won, weak attack or poor defense. I don't see anyone more skillful than the old champs, even as good as the late 90's top players.
