    Selected matches for MD and WD for tomorrow, with predictions in bold.

    MD ROUND OF 32
    Luluk Hadiyanto/Alvent Yulianto vs David Lindley/Chris Langridge -- the Indo pair should win!

    Kristoff Hopp/Ingo Kindervater vs Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan -- ditto.

    Hoon Thien How/Tan Boon Heong vs Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen -- the ex World champion is reunited and the young Malaysian pair is unlucky to draw them in the first round.

    Gan Teik Chai/Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif vs Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- expect a thriller with the Korean pair progressing through.

    Keita Masuda/Tadashi Ohtsuka vs Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya -- again, a tricky but manageable tie for the ex Olympic champion.

    Chew Choon Eng/Hong Chieng Hun vs Flandy Limpele/Sigit Budiarto -- Flandy/Sigit's first match after winning the Singapore Open. They remain as unpredictable as ever and they should have a slight edge over their Malaysian opponent.

    WD ROUND OF 32
    Chung Jae Hee/Park So Youn vs Kumiko Ogura/Reiko Shiota -- finally, we see the return of the cute Jap pair :D They should start their campaign with a win.

    Gail Emms/Donna Kellogg vs Lena Frier-Kristensen/Kamilla Rytter-Juhl (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- a tough match for both pairs but the English pair has a slight edge.

    Nicole Grether/Juliane Schenk vs Lita Nurlita/Nathalia Poluakan -- I hope the Indo pair can win at least one match. They have a good chance to reach the quarter-final of a 6* event thanks to a relatively kind draw.

    Kim Young Hang/Ahn Jung Ha vs Jo Novita/Gresya Polii -- likewise, the seeded Indonesian pair should prevail!

    Hmm, for MD, i will be surprise if Candra/Tony won't play against Sigit/Flandy as early as the QF..If they do meet, now, get those camcorders ready as that should be 1 heck of an entertaining match..:rolleyes: :cool:
    As for WD matches above, i don't know abt Lita's/Nathalia's match; it's 50-50. As for Jo's/Gresya's match, they should win, but it's going to be a battle also, as they will be dueling against the hometown pair. BTW, anyone knows what happened to the current US Open WD champions from Russia?? How come i didn't see their names in the main draw any longer?? Did they withdrew??..:rolleyes:

    From the little that I saw, the Koreans have been doing well and they will be a match for their opponents.

    I thought I also saw from the Draw that some Russian players had withdrawn.

    Notable results:
    Julia Wong bt Yippy; she next plays top seed Xu Huaiwen
    Soratja (Tha) bt Mori
    Saina bt Hataya; she will play Soratja next
    Cheng Shao-Chieh bt Li Li; she will play Lu Lan next
    All the four matches above were hard-fought three-setters.
    The other R16 match from this half will eature Hwang Hye Young v Pi HY

    Day 3 is so boring that even badMania did not want to predict the Mens singles. Actually, there is nothing need to be predicted. :D

    btw, if you haven't follow, badMania is currently traveling out of the country, thus he will have very limited access to the internet and do his regular routine of previews and updates in this BC, til sometimes next week..:p ;)

    There is also a live result website via other KR sport website but i lost the link. The website above is good enough.

    It seems that recently there are some kind of landsliding in women's singles. Who entered the final in Macau open? Their level of playing is the worst I have never seen before. :eek: :eek:

    Thanks for pointing out. I meant that badMania did not predict MS the same time when he predicted other events. :confused: before he left this thread alone
