    MEN'S SINGLES
    Andre Kurniawan Tedjono [8]
    vs Lu Yi -- Andre will be the favorite to win the title tomorrow, however, Lu Yi has beaten Tommy and Alamsyah in succession. Andre needs to play aggressively and don't let Lu Yi catch up.

    MEN'S DOUBLES
    Shuichi Sakamoto/Shintaro Ikeda [1]
    vs Kristof Hopp/Ingo Kindervater [5] -- the Japanese pair deserves a title after a spectacular year, winning the bronze medal at the World Championships. They have really improved a lot under Park Joo Bong and a title will bring a sweet ending to to year.

    WOMEN'S SINGLES
    Xu Huaiwen [1] vs Wang Yihan -- tough to predict. Xu has the slight edge.

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES
    Chien Yu-Chin/Cheng Wen-Hsing [1] vs Du Jing/Yu Yang [3] -- the Chinese pair to win their second consecutive titles.

    MIXED DOUBLES
    He Hanbin/Yu Yang [1]
    vs Robert Mateusiak/Nadiezda Kostiuczyk [2] -- the Chinese pair has an edge and they should win their 4th titles this year.

    If the Poles win, badminton will become even more BIG in Eastern Europe, thus... better for world badminton! We will get more friends who don't want to throw badminton out of the Olympics...

    Thus, we should all support the Polish pair!

    agreed, with no disrespect to the Chinese team though.

    anyway, at the end of the day, the better team will win.
