    Afternoon Session:

    Zhang Yawen/Zhao Tingting
    over Wong Pei Tty/Chin Eei Hui - a very close match to call. Odds favour the Chinese on account of their current momentum, but I am very happy with MAS girls' consistency as they take up position as the best non-CHN pair from the Olympic Silver Medallist of Korea.

    Chen Jin over Boonsak Ponsana - also another close match, but I will tip it in Chen Jin's favour, given that Boonsak's killer instinct is lacking in his previous matches.

    Xie Xingfang over Zhu Lin - could go the other way based on CHN teams "legendary" acting skills.

    Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung over Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter Juhl - Top Korean pair show their vanquished teammates how to whack the Danes silly ...... :D

    Koo Kien Kiat/Tan Boon Heong over Mohd Fairuzizuan Tazari/Mohd Zakry Abd Latif - kind of a formality really. Koo and Tan to progress.

    Evening Session:

    Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen over Zheng Bo/Ma Jin - the best pair not to qualify for the Olympics go alll out to to prove another point.

    Wang Chen over Zhou Mi - Battle between ex-CHN and now HK teammates, Zhou Mi may just defer this one to her more senior colleague.

    Lin Dan over Taufik Hidayat - match of the night, and we hope to see a game of the same calibre as Taufik vs Gade at the French Open Final (which cost me the PAW title ..... :crying:)

    Cheng Shu/Zhao Yunlei over Ha Eun Jung/Kim Min Jung - CHN's new upcoming pair started off well but lacks variation. Korean new top pair may just expose them tactically.

    Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae over Nathan Robertson/Anthony Clark - after the labour last night, one wonders if the ENG pair has the legs to take hard punishment from their opponents .......

    I wish Boonsak and Taufik win, Boonsak should has slight higher chance. Logically HK MS winner should be LD.
    MD will be Korea vs Malaysia.

    The good thing coming from this semis lineup is that tomorrow's finals will be international affairs for at least 3 of the 5 disciplines. And the other 2 disciplines could be international affairs too, depending on whether Boonsak/Taufik and the Malaysian/Korean women fare.
