    i'm quite surprised not to see Gao Ling and Zheng Bo in the Swiss Open ... thought after their recent successes they would go and try and win all the tournaments in the SS.

    KKK/TBH is expected to meet FHF/CY at the QF. I wonder if LYB will be able to figure out good strategies to counter KKK/TBH's solid play by coming Friday which will help FHF/CY to take revenge. If they could make it, it's going to be the first time that KKK/TBH fails to enter the SF ... which is not necessarily a bad thing because the youngsters need to take a break mentally. However, considering that KKK/TBH need more ranking points at this crucial stage, I hope that they will triumph. KKK/TBH might break into top-10 if they win the Swiss Open title while FHF/CY will remain as No.1 even if they are defeated in QF.

    also, what a tough first half for MD, with the likes of:

    CY/FHF
    KKK/TBH
    JJS/LYD
    TG/CW
    LP/JR

    i'm betting on the winner of the tournament coming from the top half of the draw, unless they wear each other out before reaching the finals.

    what, no markis/hendra??

    There are no Kido/Hendra and Luluk/Alvent in the Swiss Open as Kido, Luluk and Alvent were being penalized by PBSI for taking part in the exhibition tournament in Papua.

    We can write off LP/JR but the other four pairs could well be the four most consistent MD pairs to perform well from now till the end of the year. On the other hand, I think JE/MLH, CTF/LWW and Markis/Kido are in downhill.

    true, our very own JR has not seen the best of times lately, but their experience can prove tricky espcially if any of the top pairs has an off-day.

    not only that, but so far their route to victories at the MO and AE have been relatively smoother, at the Swiss Open, it looks like they'll have to overcome CY/FHF in the QF, TG/CW or JJS/LYD in the SF and then i would say either JE/MLH or LJJ/HJM in the F. like i said, i'd much rather be in the bottom half!

    besides, everybody's tired!

    They could be spoilers but I doubt they are going to be the winners.

    Too bad, Markis-Hendra being banned from Swiss Open by PBSI.. if not, they have a good chance of winning.. cause they lost early in AE and had enough rest for Swiss Open..

    well, their performance has been going downhill since the start of the super series though:

    MO - semis
    KO - quarters
    AE - round 2

    and if we follow that trajectory, that would mean that if they competed in the swiss open, would they have lost in round 1??

    But like the old saying, once you hit "rock bottom", the only way you can go is "UP"... beware of them as they are still a very decent team in my opinion.:cool: Although we won't see them in the Swiss open.
