    Can't agree any more..
    WS
    CM or TTY I wish I could've listed SN but she still unfortunately don't have what a WC demands..
    MS
    CL and CL yes I do dare to say it.. I am sure it isn't LD or JOJ or KS or KM or SWH for sure..
    MD
    LYD/YYS or FH/ZN.. MA/HS won't be on the podium at all
    WD
    MJ/TYT or JHT/TQ.. I am still very optimistic for MM/AT and NKM/GP
    XD
    ZN/ZYL its almost written on the stone unless there is some brand new creative partnership.. MJ/XC or TA/LN has no chances at all to deny this formidable duo

    Hahahah I guess have already listed all of them :D
    Let me help you to shortlist a little..
    Cutout AY and Yui as JustinL made us aware about their respective reasons..
    Delete the Korean ladies SJH and BYJ.. Maybe a SF but even that'll be too much to demand
    I believe SN still can't do it maybe a medal but not the title unfortunately..
    WYH and PVS has simply no chance..
    Yes here you have
    LXR/WSX/TTY/RI/CM in the reverse order is my prediction...

    You are spot on mate.
    LXR has everything in her bag to win it.Carolina Marin too has weakness in her game.RI struggles against pure power grinding players like nehwal,so it's not like she has something less than others.if the issue is mental block then she should just watch her idol LD's videos.i feel she needs to underestimate her opponents.

    And yeah tennis misses something which badminton offers apart from it's obvious boredom

    i think LD needs to put up a performance equivalent to His Asian Games 2014 Level to add one more tatoo to his body

    Such is Lin Dan's immense reputation that, despite his aura of invincibility having faded considerably no doubt due to his recent unexpected failures, he, The GOAT, is still widely regarded as very much capable of springing a surprise or should I say restoring our belief in him as to prove his naysayers and detractors all wrong. Write him off at your own peril.

    For MS WC, I should name Chen Long, Lee CW, and Lin Dan, not necessarily in that order though I'm inclined to place Chen Long first, the defending WC. Actually, for Lin Dan, the question is how much does a sixth world title mean to him. But, after a couple of embarrassing early exits,unprecedented in his entire illustrious career, I believe he would be driven by the desire and duty-bound as well to redeem himself if only to satisfy CBA/LYB and his big-time sponsor Yonex, and what better way to do so at this time than to win the WC in August, the ultimate aim being still the Olympic gold, his third, next year.

    Hehe, find it interesting how some people appear to simply not accept that other countries have caught up with China (and now surpassing them) in the WS discipline. When a China WS player loses, it's (mostly) because she is not playing well or some other excuse. It's time to wake up from your dream and admit that there are simply many other players that are at least as good as China WS level now, and yet many more that are simply better.

    By the way, first time in history that there are no China MS or WS playing in a Superseries final?

    I am a very neutral voice on this.

    I am a very objective person, and hence only focus on results.
    So, yes I accept that the rest of the world has caught up with China, and surpassed it.

    The only issue is that language is a bitch, and highly subjective.
    You said, "find it interesting how some people appear to simply not accept that other countries have caught up with China (and now surpassing them) in the WS discipline"

    Now if this is a statement based solely on today's quality, there should be no doubt about it.
    But, some people can also construe it as other countries overall WS program now being strong enough that CHN is in a long dust.

    That isn't assured at all.

    Ultimately we can speculate all we want. However, China's dominance in the WS discipline hasn't just been fading this week. I think it started to become quite evident in 2013 when RI defeated China's best player at the World Champs. Even before that, there were signs that Japan were producing bright young talents (eg. Yamaguchi) that were already world beaters. Yamaguchi herself broke the record for being the youngest ever WS player to win a Superseries tournament. And despite still being a teenager, she was consistently bringing China's best player to deciding sets and occasionally beating China's 2nd and 3rd best players. I think Japan are doing something very right with their WS players, and it's translating into great results now.

    I think most people would concede that China still has the most depth of any discipline, including WS (hence why they will always be difficult to beat in tournaments like Sudirman Cup). And that's simply because of sheer numbers and a rock solid developmental squad etc. However, we're seeing amazing talent come from all over the world now, including Taiwan (TTY), Thailand (RI), Japan (AY, NO, and now YH is breaking through) , and even Spain (CM). With the exception of YH, all these girls are barely 20 years old. So they are all here to stay for the long haul.

    I really think we're in the golden age of WS badminton right now, and we are very lucky to be experiencing it. Just like in tennis, the age of Federer/Nadal/Djokovic is probably the greatest ever, and once they're gone, we're going to realise that they are players that only come once in a century. While WS isn't quite at that level (you'd need CM/LXR/RI etc to each be as successful as Lin Dan to compare with Federer/Nadal/Djokovic), it is starting to come close. And it's become much more interesting to watch.

    I think it's also the first time in history that both Japanese MS and WS are playing in a SS final.
    Yui Hasimoto and Kento Momota are from the same corporation, i.e. NTT East.

    Players that I wanted to win tomorrow:

    MS: JOJ - but I think Momota will win.
    WS: RI - she deserves to win after beating the queen in convincing manner.
    MD: Fu/Zhang - I'm afraid they are going to lose, Zhang played a total of 2 hours and 10 minutes yesterday, Koreans played only 48 minutes they are lucky.
    WD: Tang/Tian
    XD: Xu/Ma - but they will probably be destroyed by Zhang/Zhao.
