seens Xia is in very good form dispite an awful last year. Good for him and good for badminton as Xia is one of the old guys and plays a more tricky and crowd friendly game than players like Lin Dan, Chen Jin, LCW etc. I doubt WCH can defeat LCW since LCW seems fitter than Wong. Wong has lost a little speed the last 2 years and are also less powerful than before. In contrast Gade has been very fit since Malaysia Open and has almost played up to his "old" standard even if he has passed 29. Lets hope this is Xia tournament, but I think he will have a hard time against gade if Gade makes it through.
