    Predictions

    MS
    Lee CW bt Kaldau (clear favourite)
    Lee HI bt Wong CH (WCH has more than a fighting chance)
    Xia XZ bt Shon SM (Shon struggled against Druzchenko)
    Gade bt Kuan BH (clear favourite)

    WS
    Pi HY bt Schenk (clear favourite)
    Zhu Lin bt Seo YH
    Mia bt Lee Hyun Jin (clear favourite)
    Xu HW bt Wang Lin (not so sure, Xu struggled yesterday)

    MD
    Boe/Mogensen bt Fairuz/Lin
    Jung JS/Lee YD bt Rasmussen/Steffensen (both are new pairings, but I favour the Koreans slightly)
    Sang/Zheng bt Logosz/Mateusiak
    Laybourn/Paaske bt Chan/Koo (hard to tell, but I hope to be wrong)

    WD
    Lee KW/Lee HJ bt Schjoldager/Andersen (clear favourite)
    Zhang Dan/Zhao TT bt Augustyn/Kostiuczyk (clear favourite)
    Mia/Bruil bt Wong/Chin (in normal circumstances, I think the Dutch are supposed to be superior anyway, but at current situation, hard to tell, I hope I am wrong for this time)
    Du/Yu bt Chien/Cheng

    XD
    Lee JJ/Lee HJ bt Clark/Kellogg (but may not be easy especially as the Koreans have another match to play)
    Blair/Munt bt Roebuck/Wallwork (clear favourite)
    Zheng Bo/Zhao TT bt Mateusiak/Kostiuczyk (clear favourite)
    Robertson/Emms bt Lee Young Dae/Hwang Yu Mi (clear favourite)

    hmm.. think the Zheng Bo/Zhao TT vs Mateusiak/Kostiuczyk will be quite close.. the poles are dangerous...

    bit of a drag that there aren't any matches on during the day today - nothing ot distract me from work :)

    That explains it then. I haven't seen them play before, while some of you guys have. This is the first time I take notice of a Polish XD pairing.

    aye - mateusiak is an experienced, strong and talented player, he and logosz are a strong MD pair also.. their match against Sang Yang and Zheng Bo should be quite interesting too.. Mateusiak and Bo will be sick of the sight of each other by the end of the day :)

    hehe - and it seems the same goes for TingTing and Kosticyzk.

    what a fluke that is - for all four players in a XD game to end up against each other in the level double.. bizarre! :D

    They have only been playing mixed doubles for one year and have already been very impressive.
    Mateusiak is a top MD player with Logosz (currently world numer 10) and Kostiuczyk is a top WD player with Kamila Augustyn (currently world number 19 but worth better) and a quite decent WS player (used to be in top 50).

    Yes, Kehlhoffner played great from what I heard, leading 14-13 in the second game. He is a young upcoming player...

    Mateusiak/Kostiuczik

    They are a really strong pair, capable to trouble the best pairs in the world.

    They started playing together after the OG'2004. Their ranking is raising now and they should enter top 10 soon. I expect them to win a medal during the European Championships in few months.

    Robert Mateusiak is very fast, talented and creative player. His accuracy and net play is really outstanding. Robert is very experienced - he is in the WGP tournaments for years. He also plays in the German league.

    Nadieżda Kostiuczik is originally from Belarus. She is playing in Poland for many years. She is very consistent and reliable player and she has great defensive skills and vision of the court.

    If they are able to pass the Chinese pair, it would be really great.

    Regards,
