    Deep in is heart, Taufik Hidayat knows that this will be his last chance of landing the last major title that's missing from his trophy cabinet. He had done the first job nicely yesterday, despatching Peter Gade in straight-sets. 2 mightly opponents await him: Lee Chong Wei today; and almost certainly Lin Dan in the Final on Sunday.

    I will think that he has more confidence against Lee Chong Wei; having beaten him last year in the Macau Open Final. So, I will put him as 51-49 against Dato Lee. As for the Final match, unless he can reproduce his form during the WC 2005 and Asian Games Individual Event Final 2006, it's hard to see anyone but Lin Dan winning the All-England MS Trophy yet again.

    If there's anyone who can beat the supremely fit and in-form Lin Dan, it has to be Taufik Hidayat :rolleyes:

    LCW >< TH, both players have same target and motivation about winning All England title for the first time. Hard to predict who will win this big match...

    We need a staunch Danes loyalist here in BC ;)
    Hopefully Nana and Tine can create an all Danes Final...now what's the odds of that happening??
    MB/CM vs CY/FHF should be a crackling match. The chinese should have an advantage but the Danes seemed to be in great form as well.
    And there's also the "gado-gado" pair of Flandy/Anastassia to root for. :D

    I would rate Taufik chance of meeting Lindan higher than LCW cause his style of play is suitable to play against LCW ( tight net shot follow by power smash. Putting pressure on the opponent, not giving them much chance on the offense ). Let put it this way, a out of shape Taufik in AE last year could almost match a well prepared LCW ( even through LCW wasn't really in top form ).

    Who would win the title......... this one is hard to say. Taufik maybe getting back his old self but the current Lindan is much better than he one he beat in WC05 and AG06.
