It would be silly of me to predict any other result that a Lee Chong Wei vs Taufik Hidayat final. I’ll go with Lee Chong Wei for this one. What could be interesting is if Andrew Smith makes it to the semis and play Taufik. I know I talk about this kid a lot, and he hasn’t had a top 10 win yet, but it’s coming I promise. He did just beat Wong Choong Han, so he is legitimate.
I think the guy to look out for on the other side is Hafiz Hashim. He is suffering from a low ranking, but he is incredibly talented, as is his brother Roslin. This tournament is going to be a lot of Malaysians kicking butt for the most part.
