    It was kinda close in the 3rd round. The match could also have gone the other way. Anyway, the commentator was on the Malaysian side...so funny...

    Jonas and Lars beat Sigit and Trikus, 15/5 13/15 15/7. According to Jonas, Sigit was out for a revenge for the WC. It was a close and a bit nervy fight, not too many long rallies -- a lot of "three-shooters" (serve, return, third shot, end). Apparently Lars did a spectacular behind-the-back smash return, which he managed to put back dead hard right in the face of Sigit or Trikus. Ouch.

    PAASKE/RASMUSSEN vs ROBERTSON/CLARK: 80-20. paaske/rasmussen to win, they'll be to much for robertson/clark.

    FU/CAI vs WIJAYA/HARYANTO: 30-70. sticking my head out here. candra/halim will win if they play properly and not underestimate fu/cai. candra can use his experience of beating fu/cai in WC.

    HA/KIM vs CHOONG/LEE: 60-40. ha/kim should win although choong/lee beat them recently

    SANG/ZHENG vs CHENG/WANG: 50-50. not much diff between the 2 chinese pairs.

    I think Ha/Kim and Choong/Lee is more like 55/45.

    I saw Choong/Lee against Indo pair today, they look quite sharp.

    I'd say Sang/Zheng are favourites against Cheng/Wang, something like 60/40 at least... or am I wrong??

    I think FU/CAI vs WIJAYA/HARYANTO: 45/55. WIJAYA/HARYANTO have no any excelent match since they combine up.

    I think Fu/Cai vs the indons will be a very close affair - 50/50

    1. Fu/Cai at least get a chance to show whether they are the promising young rising stars or just a flash light. Even though, with a little bit inconsistency, they are still good enough to put on a fight. Candra and Harlim take advantage in experience, but Fu/Cai have the youngth and aggressiveness to back up.

    45:55

    2. This will give CHN at least 1 pair in the semi, not bad for a team usually struggle to even get appearance in Quater recent years.

    ROBERTSON/EMMS beated RASMUSSEN/OLSEN in a colse game.It's in my anticipation. RASMUSSEN/OLSEN is not in a good form.

    CHEN/ZHAO beated ERIKSEN/SCHJOLDAGER also in a close game.I think this is first time for the chinese pair to beat the top danmark mxd pairs.

    it would haf been a repeat of last year's chn open for xd if rasmussen/olsen had won their match... this year's semi finals of zhang/gao vs robertson/emms and chen/zhao vs lamp/jorgensen seemingly hints towards another all-china finals for xd with the 2 same pairs competing...

    zhang/gao should haf no problems getting past their match and if chen/zhao can maintain the same form which they defeated eriksen/schjoldager for their first time then lamp/jorgensen should pose no threat...

    Yeah, Fu/Cai vs. Wijyaya/Haryanto may be close to 50-50. The young Chinese pair have spent <30 minutes on court in their first 2 matches and bt. the 3rd Indo pair by -7, -2 is definitely a sign of their strength in this tourney.

    Sang/Zheng have upper hand against Cheng/Wang. Having bt. 2nd seeds Eriksen/Lundgard, their confidence must have been greatly boosted. It's suprising they are able to rebound from their loss so quickly in the 1st round of HK against American pair.

    2 Chinese pairs in semis is quite possible at the moment.

    Did anyone see the match between Choong/Lee and Ha/Kim. A friend of mine in China says that he thinks Choong/Lee might have gone through, but he cannot be sure. Can anyone cofirm?

    it looks that way. i saw the score board says 1/0 to Choong/Lee, it didin't change for more than 10 mins of action so my guess is that is 1/0 sets. and then after i came home from work, the match was over, so the only possible thing in that short amoutn of time is if Choong/Lee took the second set/game as well.
