It was a near perfect day for Team INA, if not for Sony's unexpected defeat yesterday. The WS players will be going home as expected, joined by Hendra A. Gunawan/Joko Riyadi and Sony Dwi Kuncoro as flight mates. Another long day beckons today..... 12:45pm XD R16 Robert Blair/Imogen Bankier vs Flandy Limpele/Vita Marissa  -- another encounter with Blair/Bankier and I believe Flandy/Vita should be fired up by now. 1:30pm XD R16 Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter-Juhl vs Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir  -- another rematch against an old foe. They have met so many times in the past half a year, with records shared at 2-2. The Danish pair won in Chinese-Taipei and French Opens, while the INA pair triumphed in Hong Kong and All-England. Can Nova/Butet repeat last week's result? 3:45pm WD R16 Jo Novita/Greysia Polii vs Gao Ling/Zhao Tingting  -- can Jo/Grace beat the weakest Chinese pair? 3:45pm WD R16 Vita Marissa/Lilyana Natsir vs Du Jing/Yu Yang  -- a battle between the two tomboys...I think the Chinese pair should prevail here. 4:30pm WD R16 Wei Yili/Zhang Yawen  vs Rani Mundiasti/Endang Nursugianti -- another match vs the Chinese pair...surely the INA pair will go home tomorrow. 6:00pm MD R16 Shuichi Sakamoto/Shintaro Ikeda vs Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya  -- a good performance against the AE runner-up for Tony/Candra yesterday and they will face the AE semi-finalist today. They should take this one. 6:45pm MD R16 Tan Bin Shen/Ong Soon Hock vs Luluk Hadiyanto/Alvent Yulianto  -- a tough match for Luluk/Alvent, but, they should win! 8:15pm MS R16 Taufik Hidayat  vs Anup Sridhar -- Taufik was slain by the same opponent in the World Championships last year. Can history repeat itself yet again today? 9:45pm MD R16 Robert Blair/Richard Eidestedt vs Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan  -- the last match of the day as always for Kido/Hendra...they should take this one though!
