. Greetings, And so we have arrived at Day 6 (FINALS), Sunday June 14th, of the Singapore Open 2008. It's the first time that I have managed to follow a SS Tournament from start to finish. Over the last 5 days, many upsets were caused by improved players. But still, there remain three 1st seeds left in the FINALS, namely; (1) MS: Lee Chong Wei (MAS) (2) WD: Du Jing/Yu Yang (CHN) (3) XD: Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir (INA) OK, my predictions (as highlighted) are: (1) MS: Lee Chong Wei (MAS) (1st seed) to defeat Simon Santoso (INA) (6th seed) LCW have said that he would concentrate to make it to the Finals, but this time his opponent is Simon and not Lin Dan. LCW's form has been good... so I don't see why he couldn't win this event. (2) LS: Tine Rasmussen (DEN) (2nd seed) to defeat Zhou Mi (HKG) (5th seed) TR has proven that her form is getting better and better. She would be delighted to carry on with it... to the Beijing Olympics 2008. She would be sending this "BEWARE" message to the top missing Chinese WS players. (3) MD: Zakry/Fairuzizuan (MAS) to defeat Gan Teik Chai/Lin Woon Fui (MAS) It's great to find that these 2 unseeded pairs reaching the Finals. Za-Fa could be a little bit steadier than Gan-Lin. (4) WD: Du Jing/Yu Yang (CHN) (1st seed) to defeat Cheng Wen Hsing/Chien Yu Chin (TPE) (2nd seed) This is the only event that Seeds 1 and 2 have made it to the Finals. Du-Yu would be able to show us why they should be ranked higher than their opponents Cheng-Chien. (5) XD: Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir (INA) (1st seed) to defeat Clark/Kellogg (ENG) (6th seed) The world's highest ranked XD pair should have no problem winning this event. My hope is that Liliyana is not too tired after having to play more games/matches than her partner and her opponents in this tournament. Well... Good Luck to All Participants !!! Cheers... chris@ccc .
