    The MS

    Took a long time.

    Lin bt Bao in 3; Jonassen bt Lee in 2; ChenH bt ChY in 2; Taufik bt Gade in 3


    Really as expected given the track record. I think Gade's days may be numbered as younger players from the chasing pack are always getting him in the later stages.

    Bao is good in the short game version but has not staying power as he loses self-confidence and gets tentative. The 2nd and 3rd sets were won by decisive margins. He must get over this jinx as he can beat Lin.

    Final forecast: Lin vs ChenH - I know Chen's abysmal record vs Taufik but I'd like to bet against the odds.

    i think chong wei still needs some time to adapt to li mao's coaching style.
    i thought it would be a rubber game. perhaps he played below par today.

    Straightforward wins for the top 3 Chinese pairs plus Japanese Ogura/Shiota. The Lees have Gao/Huang a close fight but just fell short each time. The other Korean pair Hwang/Jun were much weaker losing 7,6 to Wei/Zhao?

    Unfortunately no Gaol/Huang vs Zhang/Yang finals as they meet in the SF.

    Finals: Gao/Huang to beat Wei/Zhao in straight sets.

    Three Chinese pairs and one Japanese pair march into the semifinal tomorrow. All games ended in stright sets. The match between Gao/Huang and Lee/Lee is close, 12 and 13. The Japanese top pair Ogura/Shiota will play Zhao/Wei.

    The MS results dashed Malaysia's last hope, Lee Chong Wei but he achieved his target of at least making the semi-final.
    So Taufik vs Chen Hong
    Lin Dan vs Jonassen,
    Lin Dan vs Taufik is on the cards, but their worthy opponents are in form too, the opposite may turn up too.

    Tight match but Gao/Huang got through beating Lee/Lee 15-13 15-12
    Other two chinese pair had no trouble : Yang/Zhang win 15-9 15-2 against the Danes, Wei/Zhao win 15-6 15-7 against second korean pair.
    ... and in the all-japanese QF, Ogura/Shiota beat their compatriots Maeda/Suetsuna 15-5 15-12.

    He was in QFinal not semi-final mate. I can see that LCW still cannot adapt into Li Mao training regime. His form flopped so much. I feel skeptical when he lost to Jonassen in straight games. I don't mind if he lost but at least he should put some fight as he did when under Misbun.

    Yes, I made the mistake, he did not fulfill his target.

    Eriksen/Lundgaard bt Gunawan/Bach 15-11, 11-15, 15-9
    Fu/Cai bt Kidho/Setiawan 15-9, 15-10
    JR/Lars bt Sang/Zheng 15-4, 15-13
    Candra/Sigit bt Hadiyanto/Alven 8-15, 15-8, 17-15

    Semifinal lineup is thus:
    Eriksen/Lundgaard vs Fu/Cai
    JR/Lars vs Candra/Sigit

    Both matches are hard to call, in my opinion. Eriksen/Lundgaard and Fu/Cai have one win each in their two last meetings, both 3-setters. My mind says that Fu/Cai win in 2 very close sets, but my heart says that the Danes win in their usual style: losing 1st game big, then savinmg a few match points in 2nd before winning that one, and then win 3rd game easy. :p :D

    It's almost two years since Candra/Sigit met JR/Lars now. Both pairs have provided us with both positive and negative surprises during that time. JR/Lars had a poor start in this tournament, but seem to have gained momentum now: their win against Zhang/Seng was convincing. Yet, I have a feeling that they are still not performing 100%... And they need to bring out their absolute best in order to outmaneuver Candra/Sigit. No, I'm not even going to try to make a call on this one. Heart says it's a draw. :p

    No, his target was the quarterfinals for the Japan Open, so he fulfilled it. I think he has the potential to exceed that target, but the most important thing is to at least justify your seeding first.

    Which got me thinking ... in the MS QFinals, 7 out of 8 places went to the top 8 seeds, the only missing one was Wong CH losing out to Chen Yu. That's pretty unusual for such a highly-competitive event. In contrast, the WS (which is not unknown for obeying the seedings to the letter), only four QFinalists are seeded, 3 of the others are qualifiers.

    Both the semifinals are very interesting affairs. I think Fu/Cai will meet Jonas/Lars in the final.
