This year is almost over and the same is the tournaments except Copenhagen Masters. Who do you think will be in form in 2004, the same players who are in form now or someone else? Here's my bet. MS: Lin Dan, he has shown great consistency and I think he has matured to be a great consistent shuttler just like Chen Hong. We will see more to this guy, if he can stay away from injuries. Peter Gade, from China Open we can see that Gade is slowly getting better and will perhaps be in his old form next year? Wong Choong Han, has also shown great form since his silver medal in WC and after that, he will perhaps be the only malaysian who can win the big events. Chen Hong, we all know what he can do on a court. Outsiders: Taufik and Bao, these two are talented players but not consistent, perhaps they will mature next year. WS: Only thread to the chinese armada is Camilla Martin. Mia, Wang and Pi plays well and get to semis sometimes, but the only girl being able to beat 3-4 chinese players in a row is Camilla. I think she will be back with new confidence after a having the break that she needed. And renember its her last tournament so she will be in top form. WD-Chinese MD: Cai/fu, very interesting and young pair, who have made some impressive runs this year and gained a bronze medal in WC this year, I think they are on there way. they just need a little more experience. Lars/Jonas. What can i say they won the two biggest and strongest tournaments this year and have showed consistency reaching at least a quarter final since WC. Ha/Kim and Lee/Yoo These Koreans are just world class pairs. I think one of them will take the olympic gold medal Chan/wah wah they have revived like Peter Gade and can perhaps make a great upset in next years olumpic Wijaya/Halim they have yet to proove some consistency, but they havent played together that long. I think they will be stronger next year. MX: Ha/Kim what can i say they are like Superman and Supergirl Gao/Zhang the only pair who has a chance against the korean pair. WD: all chinese. What do you think about these shuttlers/pairs am i totally wrong or have I forgot someone??
