    I will probably be missing all the matches since I am flying back to SUB. So, I will probably rely on sms updates from Krisna once I landed :D

    Men's Singles
    Kenichi Tago vs Simon Santoso [8] -- another good week for Simon if he can beat Tago tomorrow. He should have the edge.

    Sony Dwi Kuncoro [4] vs Bao Chunlai [2] -- I can't see Sony beating the second-seed, esp when the Chinese player is hot with the local teens :D

    Women's Singles
    Maria Kristin Yulianti vs Zhang Ning [2] -- what a result for Maria this week...SF finish in a SS event. Can she go further tomorrow? I hope she can prove me wrong again :cool:

    Men's Doubles
    Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya [5] vs Hoon Thien How/Ong Soon Hock -- the veteran pair could win the title here, after beating the World Champions today. It will be a tricky match tomorrow, but, I think Tony/Candra should have the edge.

    Women's Doubles
    Wei Yili/Zhang Yawen [1] vs Vita Marissa/Liliyana Natsir [4] -- another SS finish for Vita/Butet should consolidate their ranking for a top 8 seeding. Can they beat the top-seed? Hmm.....

    Satoko Suetsuna/Miyuki Maeda [3] vs Meiliana Jauhari/Shendy Puspa Irawati -- what a tournament for Mel/Shendy...I have a feeling they might go all the way now...

    Mixed Doubles
    Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir [1] vs Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter-Juhl [4] -- another match vs the old-nemesis. Nova/Butet have not been beaten by the Danes this year. I hope the record continues...

    Flandy Limpele/Vita Marissa [3] vs Zheng Bo/Gao Ling [2] -- this should be a cracking match and I hope Flandy/Vita can win to set up an all-INA Final. However, Zheng/Gao have the slight edge.

    Agreed with most of the prediction, except Flandy/Vita will take down ZB/GL and the Djarum pair will falls to the JPN ladies. The XD is scheduled ahead of the WD so Vita should be fresh, and ZB/GL hasn't been themselves lately. Mel/Shendy is performing beyond any expectation, but the JPN pair should proved too strong to handle (I think they're actually stronger than the JPN cuties).

    It would have bee nice if we can afford having Vita/Butet concentrate full time on WD. They should be one of the world's best and a threat to China's Great Wall of WDs along with the KOR pair.

    This INA SS is a good chance for Sony to win his first SS title ...so he must beat Bao Chunlai to meet Simon in Final..

    Women's Singles
    Maria Kristin Yulianti vs Zhang Ning [2]
    I know it`s not easy for Maria to beat Zhang Ning but I just hope she can prove your prediction is wrong again...:D

    Women's Doubles
    Wei Yili/Zhang Yawen [1] vs Vita Marissa/Liliyana Natsir [4]
    Another upset will come true in this WD match...:D

    I think the Mel-Shendy will fight for 3 games against the Japanese pair... 50% chance of winning. These 2 pairs are very evenly matched...

    Zheng-Gao had a very easy time today. Fran made SIX net service errors on his own... So Zheng-Gao are very VERY fresh for their match against Flandy-Vita...

    badMania, there are only 10 matches in the SF and u only predicted 8 matches involving INA players. What about the remaining 2? :p

    Anyway, I agreed with your predictions.

    Considering the form they're in right now, I doubt the KOR junior pair can stop the Fuzzy's onslaught ;).

    Pi Hongyan has been forced to play back-to-back-to-back rubber.... while ZL is relatively fresh (despite losing 1st set to Wang Chen). ZL would take it in straight sets.

    i dont' think that the double task of Vita/Lilyana (play in WD n XD) is good for them... they will never make it,,,, success in both... in the end, they have to choose whether focus in XD or WD,,,, Singapore Open had proved it.... INA pairs is weak in stamina...
    poor ViLy... especially for Vita Today.... face Gao/Zheng (n0.1 seeds) and also Zang yawen/wei yili (also n0.1 seeds).... it will be tired day for her....
    PBSI has to take attention on this if INA want to take Gold in Beijing...

    Technically not juniors. They're both 21. They've been on the same team together since they started middle school in 2000.

    21 is still "junior" by Msia standards. Some of Msia players at 21 are still in back-up squad. And definetely junior to Fuzzy, Fuzzy = 25.
