    My predicted winner listed to the left.

    MS
    Roslin v Park SH - could be close
    Chen Yu v Simon - could be close too
    Kenneth v Shon
    Boonsak v Hwang Joon Woon
    Poompat v Jang Young Soo - could be close
    Bao v Dicky
    Lee HI v Taufik - TH likes to award wins to the home nation players, right? also, match of the day
    Sairul v Kennevic - the weakest match of the round

    WS
    Xu HW v Julia Wong - could give a run for the money
    Saina v Soratja
    Pi HY v Hwang Hye Young
    Lu Lan v Cheng Shao-Chieh - could give run for money
    Zhu Lin v Meemek
    Hirose v Yao Jie - hard to predict, this one (match of the day)
    Hallam v Kanako - another hard one
    Wong MC v Salakjit

    MD
    He/Shen v Sakamoto/Ikeda - can't say I know any of them, prediction based on the Chinese beating the top seeds
    Lindley/Langridge v Han/Kang - another soft one, also predicted based on beaten opponents
    Fairuz/Lin v Yoo/Jeon
    Lee/Hwang v Clark/Blair - not quite sure about this one, if it was Jung/Lee I would be quite sure; Clark/Blair are an experienced pair
    Kido/Setiawan v Paaske/Rasmussen - tough one (match of the day)
    Jung/Lee v Ong/Tan - Koreans looking good to win the title here
    Xie/Guo v Tony/Candra - a cracker this one, I predict based on Xie/Guo being a long-established pair and not a bad pair, too while Tony/Chandra may be a wee bit rusty
    Koo/Chan v Flandi/Sigit - another cracker, same logic as previous

    WD
    Yang/Zhang v Kimiko/Reiko - those poor things
    Chin/Wong v Chou/Ku
    Emms/Kellogg v Nedelcheva/Dimova
    Nurlita/Poluakan v Augustyn/Kostiuczyk - can never remember the spelling
    Pan/Tian v Novita/Polii - not sure about this one (match of the day)
    Cheng/Chien v Suetsuna/Maeda
    Saralee/Sathinee v Parker/Day
    Lee/Lee v Andersen/Schjoldager

    XD
    Widianto/Natsir v Kindervater/Piotrowski
    Sudket/Saralee v Shen/Tian
    Lee/Hwang v Rasmussen/Andersen - Koreans were impressive in Thailand; Lee YD kicks some a**
    Laybourn/Juhl v Mateusiak/Kostiuczyk
    Clark/Kellogg v Rizal/Polii - (match of the day)
    Eirksen/Schjoldager v Hwang/Jung
    Blair/Munt v Paaske/Nielsen
    Lee/Lee v He/Pan

    Korea Open:Day 4(24/8)

    Lets start from MS(Round of 16)
    Hashim Roslin vs Park Sung Hwan-- if he can continue with his today performance, i do think he can win but beware of the opponent

    Chen Yu vs Simon Santosa-- i think he can win and stand a bigger chance

    PalyamaDicky vs Bao Chun Lai-- Of course he should win,if not..who???
    Taufik Hidayat vs Lee Hyun ll-- i think that taufik is still powerful espiacally without a strong opponent-LCW...but this is Lee Hyun ll hometown..so...

    Ayob Sairul Amar vs Asuncion Kennevic--What do you all think???

    Kenneth Jonassan vs Shon Seung Mo-- The olympic bronze medallist should win

    Boonsak Posana vs Hwang Jung Wong-- I hope Boonsak to win

    Jang Young Soo vs Sapkul Chananart Poompay-- I do both of them...so...what do you think..
    MD
    He Han Bin/Shen Ye vs Sakamoto Shuichi/Ikeda Shintaro-- The china pair should win

    Lindley David/Langridge Chris vs Kwon Yi Goo/Kim Soo Min--I can't predict this

    Mohd Tazari Mohd Fairuzizuan/Lin Woon Hui vs Yoo Yeon Seong/Jeon Jun Burn-- if they perform well,they have a slight edge

    Clark Anthony/Blair Robert vs Lee Jae Jin/Hwang Ji Man--Of course the korean pair should win...But anything would happened..Lets wait and see

    Kido Markis/Setiawan Hendra vs Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen--Don't forget..they are the ex world champion

    Ong Soon Hock/Tan Bin Shen vs Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae--The Malaysia pair can only gain experience...the korea young pair is strong..

    Xie Zhong Bo/Guo Zhen Dong vs Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya--They have an equally chance but the indo/usa pair have a slight edge

    Flandy Limpele/Sigit Budiarto vs Koo Kien Kiet/Chan Chong Ming--this expected to be a interesting match but i can't predict.. i hope the Mas pair can win

    I agree with you 95%.

    Here I would pick Jang

    Tony/Candra should become better after training together. While Xie/Guo is a pair supposed to disfunction. They have not play as double for a while, and this time, only because they have the ticket to go WC.

    Xie/Guo is not supposed to be good, not only because they will not play together in the future, but also Xie has not fully recovered from injury. Both Xie and Guo wants to play with Zheng Bo, who seems to be a very good double player, but cannot go along with Sang Yang, and failed to win anything big. Now Sang Yang seems not as valuable as Zheng Bo. There are a lot of decent players want to pair with Zheng Bo, including Xie ZB, Guo ZD, Gong WJ,... I don't think Coach has made final decision yet. In the HKO, Guo will pair with Xu Chen, while Xie will skip. A lot of people, including themselves, pointed out that Xie/Guo combination lacks chemistry, but has a lot of pitfalls and shortcomings. They may win several matches, but to win 6 matches in a row, seems to be a problem.

    This is no doubt a sound prediction; however, Palyama did beat Bao here two years ago at about the same stage in the tournament!

    right, here are the predictions i disagree with for MD:

    Lee/Hwang v Clark/Blair
    i think the experience of the english pair will prevail ...

    Kido/Setiawan v Paaske/Rasmussen - tough one (match of the day)
    agreed match of the day, again would expect the danes to pull through ...

    Xie/Guo v Tony/Candra
    this is a close contender for match of the day as well, hmmmm, but based on past performances, i think the indonesians will be too strong ...

    all in all, MD is looking to be much more interesting than the other categories, although i would love to see reiko and kumiko play the chinese in WD.
    someone please record and post that match!

    it's prolly because BCL has improved so much over the last 2 years ... along with many of the younger CHN MS players ...

    Very interesting about the Zheng Bo situation. I always wonder why China still do not have a consistent 2nd men doubles. Zheng Bo and XZB are both good in mixed doubles, so the logical thing would be for them to continue with Guo / Xie or pair up Guo with Zheng. You very rarely see two good mixed doubles player pairing up for the men or women doubles (except the English team)

    hcyong & Jessica, first off just want to say thanks for your initiative in taking over the previews task..hope you'll continue til the Finals Day..;)
    yes, i concur here with this analysis...The MD events will be quite a spectacle..Paaske and Rasmussen will be victorious because of their experience, but it's 50-50. As far as Tony/Candra goes, i think they should win and advance to the QF and await their former compatriots in Flandy/Sigit. Personally, I will be surprised if those 4 former/current Pelatnas players don't meet in the QF..;) :rolleyes:
    concur also, i think the match between JPN's top pair and CHN's pair will be a barn burner as well. The CHN's pair is not their strongest, so i think the JPN pair has a chance & can match them blow by blow; it could be a close affair, possible a nail-biter til the end..;):cool:

    These are my predictions for the matches:

    MS
    Roslin v Park SH - The Korean is dangerous because he is at his home ground. It will take an extraordinary effort for Roslin to overcome him.
    Chen Yu v Simon - Simon seems to be in good shape in this tournament. He should be able to win if he holds his nerve. He is technically just as good or even better than Chen Yu.
    Kenneth v Shon - Kenneth's excellent court covering abilities will prevail.
    Boonsak v Hwang Joon Woon - Boonsak's tricky shots will get him through to the next round.
    Bao v Dicky - It is not even a question! Bao will win. He is better in every aspect.
    Lee HI v Taufik - I would like TH to win, but his lack of competitive plays can be crucial.
    Sairul v Kennevic - Not interesting enough to watch.

    MD
    He/Shen v Sakamoto/Ikeda - Not sure who the hell are they.
    Lindley/Langridge v Han/Kang - Hate Lindley/Langridge for beating Luluk/Alven.
    Fairuz/Lin v Yoo/Jeon - Fairuz/Lin can be the next big thing for Malaysia.
    Lee/Hwang v Clark/Blair - I will root for Lee/Hwang
    Kido/Setiawan v Paaske/Rasmussen - Time for Kido/Setiawan to prove that they are part of the INNER CIRCLE.
    Jung/Lee v Ong/Tan - Jung's experience and Lee's talent are huge here and they will undoubtedly crush Ong/Tan.
    Xie/Guo v Tony/Candra - Is it even a question? When two geniuses are reunited, they are invincible!
    Koo/Chan v Flandi/Sigit - Flandi/Sigit will get the job done.

    WD
    Yang/Zhang v Kimiko/Reiko - those poor things
    Chin/Wong v Chou/Ku
    Emms/Kellogg v Nedelcheva/Dimova
    Nurlita/Poluakan v Augustyn/Kostiuczyk - can never remember the spelling
    Pan/Tian v Novita/Polii - Polii will save the day! I strongly believe she is the next big thing in the Lady's department in Indonesia.
    Cheng/Chien v Suetsuna/Maeda
    Saralee/Sathinee v Parker/Day
    Lee/Lee v Andersen/Schjoldager

    XD
    Widianto/Natsir v Kindervater/Piotrowski - They are not World Champion for nothing.
    Sudket/Saralee v Shen/Tian
    Lee/Hwang v Rasmussen/Andersen
    Laybourn/Juhl v Mateusiak/Kostiuczyk
    Clark/Kellogg v Rizal/Polii - Interesting match. A young pairing against oldy. Aggressiveness will prevail over experience.
    Eirksen/Schjoldager v Hwang/Jung
    Blair/Munt v Paaske/Nielsen
    Lee/Lee v He/Pan

    Well, among other things, He/Shen are the guys who took out the defending champions and world #1 in the first round.

    They took the defending champion and world #1? Wow, that is new to me. Who is the current #1 anyway? Cai/Fu? Eriksen/Lundgaard?

    Seems like total anarchy here since badMania left. Everyone coming up with their own predications.

    I predict a KJ vs TH final & TH to win :D

    Unfortunately, of late Dicky hasn't been playing well, whereas Bao has been quite consistent although he did not win, but came close to it on a few occasions, I think.
