    WTF are you talking about. I didn't even mention India - I said that England is bound for another thrashing by China in the QF.

    India in the final? They'd be lucky to get past the QF stage what with Indonesia as their next hurdle.

    If you're going to continue proving that you have the reading comprehension of a gnat, don't bother responding to my posts.

    On paper INA is weaker than THA because THA 3 singles are stronger but 2 doubles are weaker.
    But for India, I think it is better to face THA than INA. India 3rd singles is difficult to win against Firdasari.
    India WD2 also weak. Indonesia just need to field the right WD1 combination to win.

    No offense but in my opinion it would be difficult for India to get past Indonesia in the QF.

    Oh My, this seriously gives an impression you have got a short term memory loss issue, just an hour back it was your post which said you are waiting for the draws of India, didnt you?
    And please if you really dont want a response on the posts, you have a choice to leave the group! or never ever put a public post anywhere in a forum...
    Anyways if you have forgotten something you so badly wanted just a couplle of hours back, I shall happily leave you from the trauma you have been suffering all along...

    Thomas Cup: CHN vs JPN; MAS vs INA

    Uber Cup: CHN, KOR, IND, JPN

    You're a lot like Saina "I'm one set down, and I'm going to blame my opponent for gifting me an Olympic medal" Nehwal.

    Exactly, and the way I saw the Thai WS play, I wouldn't say that their WS1 and WS2 are looking all that great either. Ratchanok played appallingly against Nehwal the other day.

    Against Indonesia, India is almost guaranteed to lose both WD. Gutta looks shockingly unfit for a competitive athlete. India's WS3 is also very amateurish.

    Oh Com'On don't bring that up again... :) So if the opponent couldn't last the match its SN's fault? or you imply it is.... Playing with tiredness/fatigue/completing a game/pressure/nerves is one's own virtue and what counts in the end is the scoreboard.... there is no such thing as GIFTING in a competitive sport. With this post I am assuming you are next gonna say - oh wait the last rally sapped out energy from the player lets start the next point after a 5 minutes break!!! or you want to go through the oredeal of discussions of that Olympic game once again??? you can red the threads once again from the archives I believe there are ample beliefs already available and need not go there....

    Too bad DEN/MAS & KOR/INA are happening simultaneously. That said, I hope Youtube has coverage of Court 2 this time around.

    With the kind of players India have got, any team in Uber Cup quarter final would be difficult for them. India is playing with players only for 3 matches...

    well, not quite accurate, the host team is simply not lucky enough for not having ENG in QF :D ENG is a gift in UC; like FRA in TC
