    Men's Singles
    Sony Dwi Kuncoro [2] vs Joachim Persson [3] -- Sony can secure top spot and is likely to play against Peter Gade tomorrow if he can beat Joachim.

    Taufik Hidayat [5] vs Andrew Smith [7] -- Taufik can also get an extra US$5k if he can beat Andrew Smith and should play Lee Chong Wei tomorrow.

    Men's Doubles
    Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan
    [1] vs Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen [4] -- Kido/Hendra should take this one and progress to SF.

    Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan [1] vs Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong [5] -- a tough one to predict....it could go either way. But I hope Kido/Hendra can show their true form.

    Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen [4] vs Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya [6] -- Boe/Mogensen have the edge from recent matchups.

    Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong [5] vs Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya [6] -- the MAS pair should take this one and advance to the SF.

    Women's Doubles
    Vita Marissa/Liliyana Natsir
    [2] vs Judith Meulendijks/Yao Jie [8] -- a spot in the SF should be secured for Vita/Butet.

    Vita Marissa/Liliyana Natsir [2] vs Ha Jung Eun/Kim Min Jung [4] -- the last time they met, Ha/Kim won. I fear a similar result could happen today.

    Lena Frier-Kristensen/Kamilla Rytter-Juhl [3] vs Jo Novita/Greysia Polii [7] -- a tough matchup for Jo/Grace...the one that determines whether they will progress to the SF. I hope they can win.

    Wong Pei Tty/Chin Ee Hui [1] vs Jo Novita/Greysia Polii [7] -- the top seed should take this one.

    Mixed Doubles
    Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir
    [1] vs Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam [5] -- Nova/Butet will also secure top spot by beating Sudket/Saralee. It depends on whether they prefer playing Laybourn/Rytter-Juhl or Clark/Kellogg in the SF.

    Robert Blair/Imogen Bankier [4] vs Flandy Limpele/Vita Marissa [7] -- both pairs have been eliminated, so, Flandy/Vita are playing just for pride.

    Sorry I didn't update much during the event, the Blackberry ran out of batteries due to over-exuberance of my office colleagues, sending my bucketloads of email.

    Today, I brought the charger along.

    Vita/Lily reach interval at 11-9, initially they were in control up to 7-0, before Yao/Judith started chasing

    A lot of INA loose net returns, but not many were punished by the Dutch..

    Raphy is walking towards his action capturing position.

    Vita/Lily take the 1st 21-14, on account of their good start. KOR girls also took their 1st game with the same scoreline.

    BTW, Dr Kang, the BWF president is here.

    Raphy starts firing on the Dutch, with his camera, of course.
