    I suppose all matches will be held at a same court right?
    :)Can Chen Hong make a hat-trick in Singapore? He won it in 2002 and 2003. Taufik is out to win his first trophy after OG. Chen Hong certainly won't have an easy game, Taufik sent lin dan packing in straight sets
    :rolleyes:Can the 1997 world champion Chandra/Sigit help Indonesia to defend the MD title won by Luluk/Alven last year? and show they are back to top form again? Or Boe/Mathias could be another rising fearful Danish pair after JE/ML and JR/LP in very soon future?
    :eek:Can Prapakamol/Thungthongkam again defeat Gao/Zhang this year after they did it in All-England, to again prove themselves they are at a same level with NR/GM, ZJ/GL etc?
    :pWhat about Zhou Mi? I can't wait to see her revenge over Zhang Ning for last year's SO final straight sets defeat. Aiya, Guangxi ma :D

    My opinion:

    MS: Taufik 55:45
    MD: Chandra/Sigit 60:40
    WS: 50:50
    WD: Gao/Huang 55:45
    XD: 50:50

    Note: Gao/Huang beat 5th seed Andersen/Schjoldager by 15-0, 15-0 in QF en route to final, but I dunno what happen???

    My prediction:

    MxD: Zhang/Gao
    WS: Zhang Ning
    WD: Gao/Huang
    MS: Taufik
    MD: Candra/sigit

    also, if OG = olympic games, then i think this is not the first trophy that taufik is aiming to win (he won indonesia open 2004 remember :D :D )

    WS: ZN vs ZM 55:45
    MD: Candra/Sigit vs Boe/Mongensen 55:45 if only indos can finish in straight set
    WD: Gao/Huang vs ZD/ZYW 55:45
    XD: 50:50 though i prefer thai win, so chn don't win many titles;)

    I guess there will be a lot of off-court relaxed(?? I hope so) players during or not during match times, like fangfang, bao, cai/fu etc, all the players who are not going to play in the final, so don't forget to snap their photos when they are cheering for teammates la:D..!!

    XD - Zhang Jun/Gao Ling
    WS - Zhang Ning
    WD - Gao Ling/Huang Sui
    MS - Taufik Hidayat
    MD - Chandra Wijaya/Sigit Budiarto


    Once again, Gao Ling proves she's still the best women double player. And Chandra/Sigit prove a big mistake the Indonesian not play them together in TC last year.

    I think the problem Lin Dan lost is more on himself rather than Taufik's game..
    Same goes to Xie Xingfang, she was "disinterested" on the court..
    That's why tomorrow we can see a close match between Chen Hong and Taufik

    LD has played Taufik quite a bit lately so if he had lost at any time his confidence would obviously have been lost.

    So it's probably better that he loses now and finds his mistakes so that he can fix for Malaysian Open and be ready for the World Champs.
