    It is not a forgone conclusion that CHN can pass MAS considering Xuchen/Zhang Nan? MAS can be up 2-0 if LCW gets his revenge and TBH/HTH play all out.

    A lot depends on LCW... If he can really win it would be a great confidence boost. Tan/Hoon could/should win I believe. Tan/Goh already showed what they can do and Fu/Cai havn´t played together for some time.
    At least I hope for a thriller.

    KOR - Korea, Republic of KOR TPE - Chinese Taipei TPE

    MS 1: SON Wanho - CHOU Tien Chen
    MD 1: YOO Yeonseong/LEE Yongdae - TSAI Chia Hsin/LEE Sheng Mu
    MS 2: LEE Dongkeun - HSU Jen Hao
    MD 2: KIM Sarang/KIM Gijung - CHEN Hung Ling/LIAO Min Chun
    MS 3: LEE Hyunil - HSUEH Hsuan Yi

    Korea should really win. But Chou showed he is very much in form!! Lee/Tsai are anything but an easy pair to beat for Lee/Yoo. Still at least 60-40.
    Anything else should go to Korea.

    Japan was very close today. Luckily for Korea to have LHI as MS3 :p
    KO/SHIN showed nerves. They played soo bad. MS2 was a quite safe point for Jap and they have been close in all other matches...

    I was suprised PV Sindhu couldn´t win the WS2... After that loss hope was gone for Ind.
    Nice to see Jap WD1 took a point from China :)

    China vs Korea in the womens event. A close match is the best to hope for. There won´t be an upset by Korea I fear...

    I think 2 line calls gone in favour of bae which was clearly 'in' when shown in the replay but linesman called it 'out'. After that, sindhu lost interest in playing. She has given up.

    Indeed, don't remember when the last time INA men's team failed to reach semifinal at AG stage, what a big disappointment outcome!

    That's why CHN sets LD as MS2, just in case MAS leads 2-0 then Lin Dan will save CHN pride.

    Because Wang ZM WR is higher than Lin Dan and CHN will not repeat their Thomas Cup big mistake to field Lin Dan only for MS3.

    I guess if CHN meets KOR in finale, Lin Dan will be fielded as MS3 to face Lee Hyun Il, Tian Houwei will play MS2 against Lee Dong Keun. It's hard chance for CHN to steal point from MD.

    CHN is so afraid of Koreans stealing one MS from the dependable LHI, they put LinDan as MS3. :)
