    The matches will start from 3:00pm.

    MEN'S SINGLES
    Peter Gade vs Ronald Susilo -- both players struggled to beat their opponents today, esp Peter. He was pushed all the way to deuce in the rubber set. The home crowd will be cheering for their local favorite, Ronald. Can he topple the top seed?

    Bao Chunlai vs Saman Ismail -- should be an easy workout for the Chinese.

    Mohd Hafiz Hashim vs Chen Hong (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- should be an interesting match to watch. Both players have impressed so far. The Chinese has an edge.

    Anup Sridhar vs Kenneth Jonassen -- a tricky tie for the Danes, but, he was impressive in his victory against Shoji Sato tonight.

    WOMEN'S SINGLES
    Mia Audina vs Chen Li -- experience vs youth. I hope Mia can win.

    Kaori Mori vs Lu Lan -- an interesting tie, with the young Chinese player holding an edge.

    Petya Nedeltcheva vs Kanako Yonekura -- shouldn't be a problem for the Jap girl.

    Zhu Lin vs Pi Hongyan (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- again, youth vs experience. This time, I think youth will prevail.

    MEN'S DOUBLES
    Jens Eriksen/Martin Lundgaard Hansen vs Anthony Clark/Robert Blair -- the World no 1 should be too strong, although the English pair has shown improvements over the past year.

    Chan Choong Ming/Koo Kien Keat vs Flandy Limpele/Sigit Budiarto (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- both pairs are erratic and have not impressed so far. It could be a thriller if both plays to their best level. The Malaysian pair has an edge.

    Hoon Thien How/Tan Boon Heong vs Jonas Rasmussen/Peter Steffensen -- can youth prevail?

    Lars Paaske/Thomas Laybourn vs Hendry Saputra Kurniawan/Hendra Wijaya -- it will be a miracle if the local pair can create yet another upset. The Danes should be too strong for them.

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES
    Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen vs Jo Novita/Greysia Polii -- the Indonesian pair has fulfilled their expectation by reaching the quarter-final. It will be a bonus if they can get a set out of the world champion.

    Chien Yu-Chin/Cheng Wen-Hsing vs Britta Andersen/Mette Schjoldager -- shouldn't be a problem for the Chinese Taipei pair.

    Wei Yili/Zhang Yawen vs Wong Pei Tty/Chin Ee Hui (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- no question, the Chinese to win.

    Zhang Dan/Zhao Tingting vs Gail Emms/Donna Kellogg -- again, similar to the above.

    MIXED DOUBLES
    Nathan Robertson/Gail Emms vs Zheng Bo/Zhao Tingting (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- the first match for tomorrow and what a thriller it's gonna be. The English pair holds an edge.

    He Hanbin/Zhang Dan vs Robert Blair/Natalie Munt -- the young Chinese pair can create yet another shock by beating the more experienced English pair tomorrow.

    Anthony Clark/Donna Kellogg vs Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir -- the road to the title is made easier since Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen is out of the equation now. The World Champion should not have a problem reaching the final.

    Tsai Chia-Hsin/Cheng Wen-Hsing vs Mohd Rizal/Greysia Polii -- the young Indonesian pair is performing pretty well. They crawl all the way from the qualifying round and could win again tomorrow to meet their senior in the semi-final. A bright future beckons for Rizal/Greysia.

    Here are my 2 cents..

    as usual, thanks for the preview again badMania...:cool:
    hmm, looking at the QF round, here are my 2 cents for the upcoming QF, SF and Finals rounds:) :
    For the MS, it looks like it's gonna be an all CHN-affair in the Final...
    Same with the WS, eventhough all the QF matches look quite appetizing, probably the most interesting event with 2 up-and-comers and 2 veterans, could be a repeat of the IO Final(Lu Lan vs. Zhu Lin); with probably Lu Lan being the winner this time(you know, taking turns, sharing the wealth around;)..although both Kanako and Mia could give CHN's players a run for their money, esp. Kanako who has been on a hot streak recently..
    As for MD, hmm, looks like it's gonna be an all DEN-affair in the Final..
    WD, hmm, what else is new...but this time i have a feeling YW/ZJW will *lose again* to WYL/ZYW, to give them a back-to-back victory after the IO(just to prop up their world ranking)..Probably ZJW is on this tour leg just to kill time whilst spending some time with CTF...and continuing also next week @ the MO..hehe;) :rolleyes: :)
    And probably the 2nd most interesting event is the XD...As i'm looking at 3 ENG pairs in the mix..:rolleyes:

    Anyways, enjoy the QF and the rest of the final rounds..:)..and your BC get-together event, it's coming is it??..:rolleyes:;)

    thanks for the review badMania.

    Just got something to mention here,

    I think Anthony Clark/Robert Blair will struggle to beat the danes.They played badly in CG at Melbourne against MAS pair in SF. Blair is so negative.........I hope he can perform better this time.

    Tough match for Ismail Saman, hope he can produce something special.

    For Hafiz, he is still a bit inconsistent, I hope he can perform his best tomorrow.

    Hi Yo ... BadMania :)

    are these all QF Matches already in correct order ?

    Eg :MEN'S SINGLES

    1. Peter Gade vs Ronald Susilo
    2. Bao Chunlai vs Saman Ismail
    3. Mohd Hafiz Hashim vs Chen Hong
    4. Anup Sridhar vs Kenneth Jonassen

    What I meant... the 1st will meet the 2nd in Semi Final and the 3rd will meet the 4th also in Semi Final ?

    Just want to know, I will hope Ronald Susilo vs Chen Hong in Final.
    Although head to head for Chen Hong 9-0 :p

    I just cant wait for Hafiz to redeem himself from his lost to KJ at the recent Thomas cup.No matter how much brickbats he has received,I still believe he is an avesome player.A player not to be taken lightly.So watch out Chen Hong.I feel he has the skill to go all the way to take this year SO.Dream BIG,man.Go for it,Hafiz.

    Chen Hong is a dangerous player --- at his peak, he was unbeatable. But unfortunately, the Chen Hong today is not the same person. Like Tsuen Seng and Roslin......good but not good enough against younger players.

    Possible casts in SF's matches :
    -MS:Duel between Danish and Chinese shuttlers --> PG vs BCL and CH vs KJ.
    -WS:As usual CHN will secure 2 places in last four.
    -MD: Three Dane's pairs, why not?
    -WD: CHN again (3 pairs in SF)! Poor Jo/Greysia to meet the Top Seed.
    -XD: Fat chance for two INA's pairs to reach in big-4 round.Hope it realize!
    Anyway,I guess all sport-events will affected by Fussball-Fest'06 during this 1 month including badminton.How about SIN-Open?Still not impact?
