    MEN'S SINGLES
    Lee Chong Wei vs Boonsak Ponsana -- close candidate for match of the final as well.

    MEN'S DOUBLES
    Hoon Thien How/Tan Boon Heong vs Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah -- as one of you aptly put it....the master vs the apprentice.


    WOMEN'S SINGLES
    Wang Chen vs Kaori Mori -- Wang should win

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES
    Chien Yu-Chin/Cheng Wen-Hsing vs Du Jing/Yu Yang -- some said Du/Yu has 80% chance of winning...which I think is too exaggerating. Iin terms of experience and ranking, Chien/Cheng remains the favorite. Chien/Cheng has troubled the top Chinese pairs.

    MIXED DOUBLES

    Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir vs Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thungthongkam (MATCH OF THE FINAL) -- hope I can watch it...the only chance for Team Indonesia to claim a title.

    I think Boonsak has great chance to win the title. Because I still can see the tired on LCW after CWG then direct to this ABC.

    Chien Yu-Chin/Cheng Wen-Hsing never beaten China WD pairs.
    Now DU/YU's ranking points is 17520 while CYC/CWH is 25311, but you must notice, DU/YU only have five( not six ,exclude Asian Championships 2005 ) mathches record.simply calculate, their ranking poins should be 10*17520/5=35040 if they have ten mathches record.

    At the quarter of 2006 Swiss Open, DU/YU beat CYC/CWH 11:15 15:6 15:8. And DU/YU is the wd champion of 2006 swiss open.
    So DU/YU should have more chance to get the wd title:)

    I know,you are Indonesian! you support indo!you always hope china will lose!but at the most time,you always feel disappointed.after all, china always take the most titles of badminton international games.:D

    I think you should be very joyless in NOV,6,2005. The china players sweep all the titles in hongkong open.your Location shows "Hong Kong", I think you would see the scene.

    Don't get so worked up buddy. Don't vent all your frustration on me just because two of China's women's singles "suprisingly" lost to "supposedly more experienced" opponents. :rolleyes:

    Of course, China is still the dominant team in world badminton and everyone (including me) has the "eyes" to see that. There is no need to brag about it! I can live with Chinese players winning titles, but I would prefer to see upsets especially in the ladies event :D


    You will feel a slight tinge of disappointment if the team you support loses, and sport is not always about winnings :cool: Also, winning and losing in the racquet games are pretty common. So, I don't really get too excited or upset easily when watching racquet games.

    My personal experience tells me that badminton is still not the sport that gives me extreme heartache or joy. Taufik winning (losing) the Olympic gold or the Indonesian team winning (losing) the Thomas Cup do not really generate enough joy (heartache) for me....as much the victory that Manchester United got in the Champions League in May 1999 + the treble they achieved in that year. The later event was so filled with drama that it is easily my happiest moment as a fan of any sporting event!

    Or try this for heartache....your team is leading all the way up to the final day and were up 1-0 till the last few minutes of the season...then the unexpected happened...2 goals scored in the dying minutes. Your team eventually lost the league title at the last few moments to your most bitter-rival! Even worse case: you lose the league only because of 1 goal difference.

    Those 2 scenarios happened to the other team that I support....and those were really terrible feeling! Coupled with the fact that in one of the scenarios....you were initially going for 4 titles...including a prestigous European title (lost the final in injury time)....but ended up with nothing at the end of the season! Easily my worst moments as a football fan!

    So...my advice to u....take it easy mate!

    OK, I got 8/10 correct for the SF. Really thought the SIN pair would upset the THAI pair in XD. Nevertheless, my final predictions:

    Lee Chong Wei vs Boonsak Ponsana - LCW 60% (is he carrying an injury?)
    Hoon Thien How/Tan Boon Heong vs Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah - CTF/LWW 75% (men teach boys how to handle final pressure)
    Wang Chen vs Kaori Mori -- Wang should win - WC 95% (thanks for showing up Kaori)
    Chien Yu-Chin/Cheng Wen-Hsing vs Du Jing/Yu Yang - Du/Yu 55% (rested youngsters edge it out)
    Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir vs Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thungthongkam - Nova/Butet 70% (superior and in better form)

    What a bad forecast for the Indonesian Thomas Cup contingent. None of them make it to the final :(. PBSI better starts planning something. The Indonesian team performance is abysmal compared to Malaysia. Aaaarrggghhh, I'm soooo MAD. They should just fire all those incompetent fools admin in PBSI!

    Hope Nova/Lilyana will win and save the Indonesian team face. What a shame if they did not bring back a single title in this competition.

    *PRAYING REALLY REALLY HARD*

    Don't worry, Choong-Lee only beat Luluk-Alven in 3 games, but I think the home crowd factor contributed a lot to Malaysian's success in the competition, for example, Hoon-Tan vs Chandra-Sigit, Chandra-Sigit significantly did not display their level.

    NOt sure whether he is injured, but he is not in form, you could see that today, from his match against Park Sung Hwan, as he didn't have any training after the Commonwealth Games
