    Damn, it looks like Taufik Hidayat will be meeting Peter Gade at the quarter-finals, if both players make it through that is. They just had to make my two favourite players destroying one another to get to the next round.

    Oh why oh why??? :'(

    A very good draw for the reigning World Champion Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir, with a smooth ride to at least the semi-final (with match against possibly Zhang Jun/Gao Ling or Lee Yong Dae/Hwang Yu Mi).

    The other half consists of Lee Jae Jin/Lee Hyo Jung, Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen, Zheng Bo/Zhao Tingting, Nathan Robertson/Gail Emms, Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter-Juhl and Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam :eek: . Good luck to them

    MD looks set to be boring until the QF, except of course for the potential clash between Markis/Hendra vs CTF/LWW and the tie between Rasmussen/Paaske vs JJS/LYD in the last 16. A repeat of the HKO final, hopefully the MAS pair can win this time. I'm betting on the Korean pair here.

    In the QF, I have Eriksen/Lungaard vs CCM/KKK, which is another great tie. Being totally unbiased ... :D ... my SF lineup is:

    Cai/Fu vs CCM/KKK
    JJS/LYD vs CTF/LWW

    Only thing I will say is that looking at the number of byes and virtually unknown pairs in the draw, it's a scandal that Tony/Candra aren't there!

    his draw is good too.
    only have to worry about CJ.
    he has unbeaten record against BCL (6:0) and BCL has unbeaten record against Sony (4:0)
    so it will most probably LCW vs BCL in QF and then SF against CJ.

    But Kendrick and Shon Seung Mo might be the dark horse.

    Taufik starts off against the 9/16 seed Ng Wei and could have Chen Hong, Peter Gade, Lin Dan, and Lee Chong Wei (or Chen Jin) if he wants to retain his title. 4 players in the top 10!

    MS is so much more interesting, because of Taufik's low rank. He has to play Ng Wei (R1), CH (1/16), Gade (QF), LD (SF) and LCW (F) if he wants to win the title ... oh, and if the rest of my predictions come true, of course. :cool:
    The only round he can afford to relax is 1/32. Poor Ng Wei!

    LCW also has a really tough draw compared to LD, bet he wishes he isn't world number 1 now. He has to face Shon (1/16), Bao (QF) and CJ (SF). Some tough games ahead!


    My SF lineup here is:

    CJ vs LCW
    TH vs LD

    SSM and LCW haven't meet each other b4 but Kendrick has never beaten LCW (3:0).

    the only person (in LCW's upper half of the draw) has a good record against LCW is Sony, but he has to pass BCL.

    can't see that happening at the moment ... BCL will need to have a really off day.

    ~ = to differential if players have identical name
    * = seeding

    * is not for seeding if u see the draw.
    I think this is use for players which has changed their nationality previously.
    Am I right?

    I see this symbol for Yao Jie, Pi Hongyan, Wang Chen.

    I am again not sure what is ~ for as it doesn't appear next to Wang Chen.
