Malaysia favoured for Badminton Gold

All eyes will be on the Malaysians as the Delhi 2010 Badminton competition concludes with five Gold medals on offer at the Siri Fort Sports Complex on Thursday.

Malaysia, winners of the Mixed Team Gold medal earlier in the week, are looking to improve upon their impressive Melbourne 2006 tally of four Badminton Golds.

Men's Singles

Defending champion Lee Chong Wei (MAS) plays England's Rajiv Ouseph in the Men's Singles.

Women's Singles

India's Badminton darling Saina Nehwal is hoping to win her first Commonwealth Games Gold medal. She plays Malaysia's Wong Mew Choo, who has lost to her in their previous three encounters, most recently in last week's final of the Mixed Team event.

Men's Doubles

Malaysia's defending Gold medallist Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong, the No. 1 seed in the competition, are the overwhelming favourites in the Men's Doubles against England's Nathan Robertson and Anthony Clark.

Women's Doubles

India's Jwala Gutta and No. 2 seed Ashwini Ponnappa Machimanda will not be short of support from the terraces on Thursday, when they play pre-tournament  favourites Shinta Sari and Yao Lei (SIN) in the Women's Doubles.

A close battle is expected, but the Singaporeans, by virtue of their experience and form, will start favourites.

Mixed Doubles

It's Malaysia vs. England, with the unseeded Koo Kien Keat and Chin Ee Hui taking on top seeds Nathan Robertson and Jenny Wallwork. The England pair have the experience, particularly in 33-year-old Robertson but the Koo and Chin combination has an uncanny ability to upset the best.
