    MEN'S SINGLES

    Lee Chong Wei vs Poompat Sapkulchananart -- the Thai might suprise yet again

    Park Sung Hwan vs Sony Dwi Kuncoro -- another candidate for match of the round. Tough test for Sony and I hope he can win.

    Chen Yu vs Jang Young Soo -- shouldn't be a problem for the Chinese.

    Boonsak Ponsana vs Simon Santoso (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- Simon's confidence must be pretty high after beating Hafiz out. Can he reach his first semi-final in a major event by beating Boonsak tomorrow? I hope so, but my money is on Boonsak.

    MEN'S DOUBLES

    Candra Wijaya/Sigit Budiarto vs Hoon Thien How/Tan Boon Heong -- the young Malaysian pair is no easy opponent. Candra/Sigit will have to be at their best.

    Shen Ye/He Hanbin vs Hwang Ji Man/Jung Tae Kuk -- the more experienced Korean pair should win.

    Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah vs Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- expect a thrilling and explosive match. The younger Indonesian pair might yet again win if they play the right strategy from the very beginning

    Gan Teik Chai/Abdul Latif Mohd Zakry vs Luluk Hadiyanto/Alvent Yulianto -- a close candidate for match of the round. Can Luluk/Alvent have their revenge after losing in the AE quarter-final 2 mths ago? On paper, they should prevail!

    WOMEN'S SINGLES

    Wang Chen vs Eriko Hirose (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- a tricky tie for Wang, but she should prevail.

    Lee Yun Hwa vs Jiang Yanjiao -- the Chinese youngster should win.

    Trupti Murgunde vs Chen Li -- I will be really amazed if the Indian player could win again.

    Seo Yoon Hee vs Kaori Mori -- the Jap has a slight edge.

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES

    Wong Pei Tty/Chin Ee Hui vs Lim Pek Siah/Joanne Quay Swee Ling -- the no 1 seed should not face any problem.

    Chien Yu-Chin/Cheng Wen-Hsing vs Zhao Yunlei/Cheng Shu -- a tricky tie for the Chinese Taipei pair...but they should prevail.

    Pan Pan/Tian Qing vs Saralee Thungthongkam/Sathinee Jankrajangwong -- Pan/Tian could sneak a win here....but I am still picking Saralee/Sathinee to win.

    Du Jing/Yu Yang vs Jiang Yanmei/Li Yujia (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- I hope the Singaporean could win...but Du/Yu should be more superior.

    MIXED DOUBLES

    Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir vs Gan Teik Chai/Fong Chew Yen -- shouldn't be a problem for the world champion.

    Keita Masuda/Tomomi Matsuda vs Zhang Wei/Yu Yang -- the Jap is more experienced, but I put my money on the Chinese pair.

    Muhammad Rizal/Endang Nur Sugiantivs Hendri Kurniawan Saputra/Li Yujia -- a tough match and in terms of ranking, the Singaporean is more superior. Hope the Indo pair can win though..

    Anggun Nugroho/Yunita Tetty vs Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thungthongkam (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- Anggun/Yunita have beaten them in the SEA Games individual event semi-final. An interesting match tomorrow and the Thai has a slight edge despite them still not being in their top form yet.

    Very good analysis.
    I tend to agree with all your predictions, except Chong/Lee to win and the korean no 1 (Seo) to beat the japanese no 2 (Mori)
    I won't be surprised if there are three chinese pairs in the ladies doubles.

    No way Sony is going to outrank Taufik, he's too far ahead.

    I hope Taufik will make the TC finals, we need colourful players like him, even if it means Malaysia's chances to beat Indons (should they meet) is reduced. All his peers (Lin Dan, LCW, Hyun-il and Gade) will be on their toes.

    Quarter final match start at 6.30pm because I look at the schedule in the stadium Bandaraya Johor Bahru(place of the event). Are you want to watching it live at the stadium?

    Hi asriwn

    Thanks for the info. I intend to watch the ABC (semis) tomorrow and maybe Sunday too. Can you tell me schedule or what time is the first match and whether the Finals will start in the afternoon instead of 6.30 pm like today's QF. They also call the Stadium "City Stadium" at Terbau Road or Jalan Ternbau?

    Thanks for your help. :p

    Both Nova/Butet and Zhang Wei/Yu Yang have won their respective matches pretty comfortably, They will meet each other tomorrow. Technically, Nova/Butet is more superior, but you can't discount any mixed Chinese pair. And unfortunately, Nova/Butet does not have a good record against Chinese pair :cool:

    The CG bronze-medallist, Saputra/Li has also beaten Rizal/Endang in 2 sets: 21-11, 28-26. They will face off against either Sudket/Saralee or Anggun/Yunita.

    Sudket/Saralee has beaten Anggun/Yunita in 3 sets: 13-21, 21-18, 21-11

    MIXED DOUBLES SEMI-FINAL
    Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir vs Zhang Wei/Yu Yang -- a tricky tie for the world champion...but they are far too experienced to lose.
    Hendri Saputra Kurniawan/Li Yujia vs Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thungthongkam (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- Sudket/Saralee should prevail against the the CG bronze medallist. Hopefully both my favorite pairs will meet in the final :D That should set up yet another thrilling final.
