    Maria had bigger chance to win over Petya than Sony to win over CH.

    The bioggest upset yesterday must be Joko/Agus lost to unknown Germany pair.

    WMC win over PHY is an upset but not really a suprised. Cauyse we already know that WMC is a good WS.

    Polii/Vita Marissa win over WPT/CEH is not a big suprise too cause both Polii and Vita is good WD although they just been playing together since Asia Games 2006.

    Well .. about Pi hongyan i can call this an upset because pi hongyan always had quite easy matches against wong mew choo. And i can add that 10 days ago Pi hongyan got injured when she was training in hongkong then she couldn't prepare well and wasn't really ready to play T_T

    ps : it's hendra not agus lol

    coming to a court near you...
    My daily calls (winners, as always, in bold)

    XD
    Kamilla RYTTER JUHL/Thomas LAYBOURN - Pei Tty WONG/Kien Keat KOO They seem to produce when least expected. Plus home crowd a huge advantage
    Lena FRIER KRISTIANSEN/Jonas RASMUSSEN - Tingting ZHAO/Jun ZHANG Heart says Jonas but head says CHN
    Britta ANDERSEN/Joachim FISCHER NIELSEN - Donna KELLOGG/Anthony CLARK ENG pair in feisty mood
    Jenny WALLWORK/Robert BLAIR - Gail EMMS/Nathan ROBERTSON ENG pair starting to roll
    Vita MARISSA/Flandy LIMPELE - Saralee THOUNGTHONGKAM/Sudket PRAPAKAMOL Gotta love those Thais
    Natalie MUNT/Michal LOGOSZ - Nadiezda KOSTIUCZYK/Robert MATEUSIAK Two Poles are better than one
    Ling GAO/Bo ZHENG - Wai Chee Louisa KOON/Tanama Putra ALROY Easy one
    Nova WIDIANTO/Lilyana NATSIR - Mette SCHJOLDAGER/Lars PAASKE Nova & Butet have become unstuck a lot recently but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt here

    WS
    Hye Youn HWANG - Li LI Korean should take it
    Lin ZHU - Pei Xian Julia WONG Julia's already played the match of her life in the previous round. Expect Zhu Lin to take it in straight sets
    Maria Kristin YULIANTI - Petya NEDELTCHEVA Petya will beat a tired Maria
    Jie YAO - Tine RASMUSSEN Can't see Yao Jie losing
    Saina NEHWAL - Mew Choo WONG WMC to grind out a tough win
    Juliane SCHENK - Huaiwen XU Xu in a run away victory in this German battle
    Pui Yin YIP - Lan LU Calling for an upset. Yippy likes the taste of Chinese blood
    Hyun Jin LEE - Eriko HIROSE Eriko should edge a close one

    MS
    Dan LIN - Sung Hwan PARK LD now in an uncompromising mood
    Kenneth JONASSEN - Chetan ANAND Kenneth on a mission to meet LD
    Peter GADE - Ronald SUSILO Interesting one... if Peter is still not fully recovered, Ronald could push him to the limit and perhaps over
    Yu CHEN - Kay Bin YEOH Calling for an upset. YKB has nothing to lose and could feed off the crowd
    Choong Hann WONG - Jin CHEN WCH probably still not 100% but when CJ has off days, it's really off. Could be close but CJ should win
    Sony Dwi KUNCORO - Hong CHEN CH should blow Sony away
    Beng Hong KUAN - Chunlai BAO How much can the improved KBH push BCL? BCL in a cakewalk
    Przemyslaw WACHA - Chong Wei LEE Easy win

    WD
    Ling GAO/Sui HUANG - Elodie EYMARD/Weny RAHMAWATI Now that they have woken up, expect an easy win
    Jing DU/Tingting ZHAO - Petya NEDELTCHEVA/Diana DIMOVA Easy call
    Yu Mi HWANG/Min Jung KIM
    - Shruti S KURIAN/Jwala P GUTTA Should be no problem for Koreans
    Endang NURSUGIANTI/Rani MUNDIASTI - Lita NURLITA/Nathalia POLUAKAN A toss up
    Pek Siah LIM/Joanna Swee Ling QUAY - Yanmei JIANG/Yujia LI This is where home field advantage kicks in
    Lena FRIER KRISTIANSEN/Kamilla RYTTER JUHL - Gresya POLII/Vita MARISSA Must be confident after defeating the MAS top pair
    Anastasia RUSSKIKH/Ekaterina ANANINA - Kumiko OGURA/Reiko SHIOTA Cute and on-form JAPs win easily :p
    Miyuki MAEDA/Satoko SUETSUNA - Wei YANG/Jiewen ZHANG Easy win

    MD
    Haifeng FU/Yun CAI - Soon Hock ONG/Bin Shen TAN Should power on although they could get jittery if things get close
    Tony GUNAWAN/Candra WIJAYA - Ashley BREHAUT/Aji Basuki SINDORO Cannon v pop gun
    Anthony CLARK/Robert BLAIR - Roman SPITKO/Michael FUCHS English pair put an end to the Germans' dreams
    Shuichi SAKAMOTO/Shintaro IKEDA - Mohd Fairuzizuan MOHD TAZARI/Woon Fui LIN Should be no problem for the homesters
    Kien Keat KOO/Boon Heong TAN - Simon MOLLYHUS/Anders KRISTIANSEN MAS pair continue their hot streak
    Luluk HADIYANTO/Yulianto ALVEN - Markis KIDO/Hendra SETIAWAN INA battle goes decisively to the younger pair
    Sudket PRAPAKAMOL/Patapol NGERNSRISUK - Jens ERIKSEN/Martin LUNDGAARD HANSEN Old guys continue to show how to get it done
    Jae Sung JUNG/Yong Dae LEE - Lars PAASKE/Jonas RASMUSSEN Calling for an upset. At some point you gotta realise it's fruitless to root against our Jonas :D

    yes,new strategy adopted by LYB.
    basically they think ZJ is a little bit old for the 21 point rally, and GL is still good enough.

    Here is my evaluation of KBH :

    He must surely be maturing - he can no longer be a spring chicken, having tasted the worst of defeat in the Thomas Cup, which scarred him somewhat.

    His last few games, although he did not progress to any great heights, were suggesting that the guy has improved under Li Mao. As he gets more hardened, he will probably start earning his keeps by winning against better players such as BAO, CJ or CY. I vaguely remember that he took these players to very tight games in the last few tournaments. As such, the surprises might come up any time from this guy. Today, is a possible day for that against BAO.

    I'll give this to KBH: he's played better of late and have troubled a few of the big boys. While he's still far from their level, he's got the ability to hang in there better. I think it's an improved sign of mental toughness. What he's got to do is keep BCL on the court for as long as possible, put a few doubts in his mind and tire him out. The beneficiary... LCW. Isn't that what team mates are for? :)
