Malaysian Open 2008 Women's Singles Predictions

Hopes will be on local lass Wong Mew Choo to repeat her marvelous victory in last year's China Open. However, the Chinese quad of Zhang Ning, Xie Xingfang, Lu Lan and Zhu Lin will be out to spoil Malaysia's party.

Xie Xingfang
After her disappointing defeat against Wong in last year's China Open finals, Xie has once again steamrolled her opponents in the Hong Kong Open. Xie, the dangerous player, will try to maximize her speed to attempt to claim the Malaysian Open title.

Wong Mew Choo
2007 ended in both happy and sad notes for the Malaysian lass. On one hand, she won her maiden Super Series title, on the other hand, she sustained an injury that made her withdraw from the SEA games. Wong has proven that she is a force to reckon with, and she might go one step further this year and claim the Malaysian Open title after last year's disappointment.

Zhang Ning
Zhang Ning, one of the oldest players on the badminton circuit, will rely mainly on her deceptive strokes to outwit her opponent. Dismiss Zhang at your risk.

Lu Lan
Apart from her stunning Denmark Open victory, Lu has once again faded into the shadows of her more illustrious teammates. I think she will act once again, as someone to clear the way for Xie and Zhang.

Zhu Lin
The reigning world champion has failed to live up to her expectation, failing to win anything after her triumph in Kuala Lumpur. Zhu Lin is the defending champion, but in my opinion, she will be hard pressed to retain her title in the presence of Zhang and Xie.
