The finals at Germany Open for Men's singles, Women's singles, Women's doubles are all between the number 1 seed against the number 2 seed. I am quite sure that those number 1s are gonna win the title also. The results become so predictable. Even for the other two events, men's doubles and mixed doubles, are also predictable. Zheng/Gao are not seeded as number 1, but they are no doubt the best in mixed doubles. The young rising stars are still too young to rise, the old veterans are just becoming older. The landscape for the badminton will remain the same for a quite long time. The only unclear event is the men's doubles, where no one has a clear lead over others. For the upcoming all England open, It will be a business as usual tournament. It is kind of boring that there has not been any new face for a long time. The only thing new are Gao Ling pairing with Zheng Bo and Koo Kien Keat found Tan Boon Heong. They are not new either. I like to see new guys coming out unexpected, like teenagers Taufik and Lin Dan. It gave excitements to me. But now where are the teenagers? Wang YH is the only one gave me some hope. She has beat Xie XF and Zhang Ning several times, but also lost to all kinds of unknowns many times.
