    Prediction:

    Mixed Doubles - Gao Ling/Zheng Bo vs Kamilla Juhl/Thomas Laybourne. The hot newcomer in a roll!

    Womens Singles - Zhu Lin vs Xie Xing Fang. Zhu Lin maybe can raise up her speed considering XXF play a long match against Lu Lan yesterday.

    Mens Singles - Lin Dan vs Chen Jin. LD will fight to the end cause lost twice a row in tournaments maybe weaken his spot as China first MS in LYB eyes.

    Womens Doubles - Gao Ling/Huang Sui vs Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen. Lately GL/HS always win against YW/ZJW.

    Mens Doubles - Jung Jae Sung/Yong Dae vs Lee Jae Jin/Hwang Yi Man.

    KO 2007 did not been good to Indonesia players. PBSI already send their best teams (minus Taufik.) And the best results are worse than MO 2007, we only had 2 QF.

    And PBSI still determined that we can win Sudirman Cup this year.

    With what? We did not even had one guaranteed point from MS , MD or XD now. And we already lost 2 points from WS and WD if we met China. (hopefully in final)

    Sometimes PBSI officials had enormous big mouths. In this area, PBSI and BAM maybe also related. Both of them loved to targeted very high achievement without looking for the fact, can their players achieve what the officials wants? (Example winner or at least a SF)

    Haven't they heard the wisdom proverb Golden Is Silence?

    coming to a court near you...
    You guys obviously haven't considered the LYB factor. I would say LD and XXF are sure to win unless LYB lets the matches go on fairly. That's not to say they won't win anyway but you know where I'm coming from.

    My calls (winners in bold as always)

    MS LD -CJ
    As well as CJ has played, I think LD wants to prove to everyone his MO outing was a fluke. He's a proud guy and wants to sit on top of the world

    WS ZL - XXF
    I can see an upset happening here. XXF was pushed to the brink by Lu Lan and may be a little fatigued. Plus she's recovering from the flu. I hope the LYB factor doesn't come into play here

    XD Gao Ling/Zheng Bo - Kamilla Juhl/Thomas Laybourne
    Can't see it going any other way. That Gao Ling is something else

    WD Gao Ling/Huang Sui - Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen
    Make it double for GL. Will LYB allow a fair match to ensue?

    MD Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae - Lee Jae Jin/Hwang Yi Man
    Ankle injury? What ankle injury? LYD and JJS will triumph in an entertaining battle of Korea

    What did you mean?

    As far as I know, LYB and the national team of China don't like Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen. The poor pair Yang/Zhang were even asked to retire before Beijing Olympics to let others crowned the gold.

    Also as far as I know, the competition between Chinese teammates were more firerceful, because that head to head impacts more for their rankings and opportunities to play international badminton. So, for Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen it is a must win, otherwise, they would be forced to retire. Gao Ling/Huang Sui will be guaranteed to play Olympics no matter what.

    Mixed Doubles - Gao Ling/Zheng Bo vs Kamilla Rytter-Juhl/Thomas Laybourn

    Zheng Bo and Gao Ling are much better a pair than with Zhang Jun, and even better to watch. Zhang is very one dimensional and relies on his big smash. but Zheng Bo has much more control, variations and precision.

    Womens Singles - Zhu Lin vs Xie Xing Fang

    Zhu Lin is a version of XXF and ZN, but on top of that adds more grace and fluidity.

    Mens Singles - Lin Dan vs Chen Jin

    Frankly though, i think Chen Jin will have a hard time beating Lin Dan. he is closer to LCW: not powerful enough, not fast enough when compared to Lin Dan. but i think he is a hardworker and have great fighting spirit.

    Womens Doubles - Gao Ling/Huang Sui vs Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen

    Mens Doubles - Jae Sung/Yong Dae vs Lee Jae Jin/Hwang Yi Man

    reason why i see CJ has better chance than LD to win a gold for china not because CJ is better but he has very good fighting spirit and not the pressure of expecting to win like in the case of LD - not a darkhorse but a white knight for china;)

    Mens Singles - Lin Dan vs Chen Jin

    Since so many people bet on Chen Jin, so it would earn huge money if I bet on Lin Dan to win. That's my suggestion to Sandy's great job of betting game. I don't know how Sandy gives different points for different player in different match. That's the reason I haven't joined in. One very ironical phenomenon is that Sandy is the best one in betting score. If the points were given by himself, then he should not be that high in scores, average 10 points per bet, which means himself doesn't think the distribution of the points are fair.

    I don't belittle his job. He's done great job there. But I have just another approach. Don't give different points for betting who's going to win, but let all the game players to decide. For example, if 100 points for a match, there are 10 people bet on A win over B, and only 1 people bet B win over A, then if A wins, that 10 people will get 10 points each. But if B wins, then that one guy will get 100 points, because he's the only guy correct.

    So let me back to the prediction here, since most people bet on Chen Jin to win, So I vote for Lin Dan, actually, I didn't see why Lin Dan could fail again. He is just too much for Chen Jin to handle.

    Mixed Doubles - Gao Ling/Zheng Bo vs Kamilla Rytter-Juhl/Thomas Laybourn

    Zheng Bo and Gao Ling are no doubt the best mixed double now. They are not only the best mixed double, but also the best in all badminton events now to have the biggest chance to win. Lin Dan was the best last year, no body can stopped him for quite a long time, but since the advant of Zheng Bo / Gao Ling, the chaos in mixed double fighting has finally ended.

    i always have a feeling that when both Korean pairs are in final, one will concede a walkover. Hope, it does not happen today.
