    Overall: CHN is way dominating, especially in women events.

    KOR: Mighty pairs always overshadow individuals.

    MAS / IND: Guys are doing their job, lack of lady supports.

    HK: Errr... If CHN / KOR did not pull off their elites at the last minutes, will Wang Chen ever put the HK team on the board?
