    Yeah...it can go either way...jwala and ashwini with self motivation and support of crowd especially for jwala can be the key factors..and you never know they can turn the tides....which can result in Ind qualifying for their ffirst ever finals...I pray for the beat :)

    If WD1 IND fail the task then it's up to WD2 (Saina/Sindhu) in a live/die battle...

    it's home court advantage vs the theoretical strength...

    but i've high confidence IND will take WS1 & WS2 then leading 2-0 will boost WD1 to unprecedented level of play in front of overwhelming IND supporters to eventually take out Misaki/Ayaka! thats why i opt to 3-0 :D

    Yeah, I do see why you came up with that. I just think the result would be closer. Either way, we shall see and let the result speak for itself.

    Jwala better stand ready to be all around the court. Otherwise, her partner Aswini will be too exhausted playing at the back in a very long rally with Misaki/Ayaka.

    I mean guyz wake up...ind is the host..moreover...Ind bs jpn is more close match with more people wanting to watch..correct decision by the broadcaster...here in ind jpn team are the second most likeable team..so bbroadcasters definitely broadcast all their matches..every one (almost) here likes misaki/ayaka and kento and hayakawa/endo...

    Yes indeed :p
    CL vs KT can go either way, because KT is a complete wildcard. He's beaten CL once, and LCW too, but can lose to weaker opponents lol.
    BC/WH are strong, KH/HE are good too but needs an extra something to overcome CHN pair. The only reason I believe JAP will win this MD is because it plays on friday LOL.
    DUPY vs SS.... Hard call actually, DUPY is a tough runner, he just keeps running and retrieving everything, very very annoying.
    FHF/NZ vs KS/KT. This JAP pair is a lot like MD1 pair. It's friday LOL !
    LD vs TU. If it ever goes to a 5th match, we all know the result... So JAP needs the 2 MD to win.

    It's quite normal that every fan will most likely want to watch their own country so it's inevitable that some disagreement will occur. In this case either UC JPN v IND or TC MAS v INA would have fit the bill. Both will be great matches. While IND as the host has the broadcast rights and will naturally show the IND v JPN match, the MAS v INA match is dripping with tradition and is one of the all time great rivalries in badminton.

    So the key to JPN's success is FRIDAY. Wow, so scientific.:D

    The probability of India winning tomorrow is possible butextremely difficult as well. I mean, if they want to win, they have to, under any case, win the first 3 matches and that's pretty pressurizing. Besides, Indonesia had weaker WS players which made it easy for India to win today and less pressurizing mentally. Minatsu did win by a slight margin today, but back in the SS Finals 2013, she was a game and 0-7 down but went on to win the match against Saina. Misaki/Ayaka are excellent players. PV Sindhu did win today but it was a disappointing performance as you'd expect a more straight-forward victory from a WC Bronze-medallist. She's going to have it even tougher tomorrow against Sayaka/Eriko.

    Well, that's scientific enough for me so yeah, JPN to win is definitely on the cards

    Though I want IND to win, Japan's win 3-1 or 3-2 is more likely. If at all it goes to 3rd singles, I dont see Tulsi beating Akane. Also WD1 is sure shot Japan's (not underestimating Jwala/Ashwini here). I also dont think WD2 going India's way. And any upset in WS1 or 2, it's Japan's win. Odds are against India, but lets see - they did perform unthinkable on thursday!

    Agreed. I think IND will take WS1 and WS2. But then JPN will take WS3, WD1 and WD2.
