    Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir blew 2 game pts in BOTH sets at 20-18 and 20-19 respectively. Otherwise, it will be another clssic Final against Zheng Bo/Gao Ling.

    The rest of the results are pretty much expected, with more surprises coming in due to Maria Kristin Yulianti, Sony Dwi Kuncoro and Vita Marissa/Liliyana Natsir's commendable performance against the Chinese armada.

    At least 1 title is in the bag and I think Vita/Butet will surely add another title to their collection. As for Tony/Candra, its 50-50 given Fuzzy's unbelievable form in the past 2 weeks. For Maria, I still think Zhu Lin will beat her, unless of course there's another miracle tomorrow.

    He he, Erwin now a prophet, kah kah

    And our Abedeng initutively flew there to witness it happen live. Worth all his $$$, I'm sure.
    Liliyana/Marissa showed great fighting spirit, not dampened by their XD losses, they fought even harder in WD

    Maybe they will make upset no 19 & 20, and I hope of course our Fuzzy will make upset no 18 :D;). Happy day at Semis for Indonesia team, who fought back harder aft the expected XD crumbled.

    The biggest collector of upsets have to be Maria Kristin, right? :p And yes Maria is going to the Olympics. So, ...Maria, Tine, WMC, are the notable China-beaters in the horizon...

    I was eating bakso and watching the match at the same time. I thought it was all gone at 18-20...only to see Maria so calmly recovered the deficit and eventually sealed the match. I screamed in delight....hehe.......

    Good thing the Final will start at 2pm local time tomorrow, which means I will probably have time to watch the first three Finals, before going for a function at 6pm. The organizers definitely have planned the scheduling which fits my needs :D

    But unfortunately, Yippy's form seemed to have dropped of late. Hope she recovers in time for the Olympics. I presume she's qualified. ;)

    a confidence booster for Sony beating BCL. Gunawan/Chandra still the experience favourite to win the game. Unless Fuzzy/Zak can keep on attacking and fitness. Those 2 old man still very tricky and stubborn.

    The "official" list only counts upsets against seeded players. Yao Jie not seeded player, so not counted. If not, there'll a load more upsets than 17
