    Scoring

    For those who do not know the scoring system.

    For day 1 matches worth 1 point.
    For day 2 matches worth 2 points.
    For day 3 matches worth 3 points.

    Recap..

    Day 1
    Zhang Ning vs Mia Audina -> Zhang Ning won. ASIA 1 - EUROPE 0
    Taufik Hidayat vs Anders Boesen -> Taufik won. ASIA 2 - EUROPE 0
    Chan Chong Ming/Koo Kien Keat vs Nathan Robertson/Robert Blair -> Chan/Koo won. ASIA 3 - EUROPE 0

    Day 2
    Lin Dan vs Joppien -> Lin Dan won. ASIA 5 - EUROPE 0
    Seo Yoon Hee vs Pi Hongyan -> Pi won. ASIA 5 - EUROPE 2
    SaraLee Thungthongkam/Sathinee Chankrachangwong vs Mia Audina/Gail Emms
    -> Mia/Emms won. ASIA 5 - EUROPE 4

    So Day 3 matches will be very exciting :D

    my prediction ASIA 11 - EUROPE 7 :cool:

    captain's pick prediction

    For ladies' singles, most likely Zhang Ning for Asia and Pi Hongyan for Europe.
    For mens', Anders Boesen for Europe. Bjorn Joppien is good but seemed intimidated by Lin Dan yesterday. Boesen has a better fighting chance.
    Hmmm...whom to choose for Asia?:confused: It's tough choosing between Taufik and Lin Dan, not only because both performed well, but also because they have a bit of rivalry going on and it's not easy for them to let the other take the position of glory. Lin Dan seems to take the games more seriously so I guess it'll be him.

    I have to agree with Badshotbaby.

    The way Taufik and Lin Dan played their matches (considering this is not an IBF sanctioned event) shows why Lin Dan is numero uno.

    Even assuming he was not 100%, Lin Dan was a cold blooded killer on court. I saw Taufik give a lot of rallies away to Boesen on (apparently unforced) errors. Not so last night with Lin Dan.

    I agree, there are periods in the match where Taufik seems disinterested in the whole thing. Taufik has more shots but Lin Dan is like a machine.

    just a suggesttion :
    why not let the audiance decide who will play today?
    rise a kind of vote, people send short messages to vote their favorite star
    that will be a good thing for the sponsor too i guess
    but it's too late now maybe next time?

    :rolleyes: Hmm good point. That would be another reason why he sometimes looked like he was holding back on Day 1 (fantastic smashes tough). And also another reason why Lin Dan could be the captain's pick, if only to let Taufik recover properly.
