    I've just read the Thomas Cup Predicton's tread. But I wonder why there is no Uber Cup's prediction?

    Maybe bcos China is too strong for the UC? So everyone has predicted that China will win the UC already? I meant, there is no way too predict anymore cos China will absolutely win the UC?

    As a matter of fact, yes, China women's players is too strong for other countries both in singles and doubles.

    Any comment?

    The prediction..

    ..should be "Who will be the runner-ups?":p..Even the players in CHN's Women's squad are too strong for each other, in singles and doubles..:D

    So there is no doubt that China will get the Uber Cup again and again (six times in a row if I am not wrong?:confused:). It means China's Uber Cup's team "invincible" and unbeatable. The percentage for China to win the Uber Cup 2008 at least 90%, except an "X" factor will happen.



    Then who should be the runner-up? Since there is no country which has enough good players in WS n WD...
    Could be Japan, Korea, Denmark, HK, MaS, or Ina...

    Can Zhou Mi play for HK? With a line up of Zhou Mi, Wang Chen and Yip Pui Yin, they definitely is the favorite for runner up.

    With Wang Chen, Zhou Mi and Yip Pui Yin in the Singles, HKG is capable of making it at least to the SF.

    True, they lack even one good doubles pair :cool:
    If...they recruit Zhang Dan into HKG and pair her with anyone, they have a reasonable looking double pair.

    Yeah, no need prediction for Uber Cup winner! CHN is unstoppable since 1998 and it will continue for next year event. It's very wide open for runner-up position. Really hope INA Uber team can produce best performance in Jakarta/08...

    That's true, so we can call the CHN Uber Cup's team as THE DREAM TEAM like US Basketball Team. But even US Dream Team could be beaten, couldn't they?

    Yup, the most likely runner up will be HK's team, with their WC, YPY, and Zhou Mi.

    I don't think INA can do much even they will be the host for the tournament.

    if Zhou Mi was allowed to play for next year UBER CUP, Hongkong would be the strongest contender for the runner position. but who knows? they might beat the mighty china team also? Wang Chen, Zhou Mi and YIP are also capable of beating Zhang Ning, Xie Xienfang and Zhu Lin. but that would be so hard but possible reality as these HK girls have beatem these CHN ladies already b4!

    I guess, if Taiwan manage to regain their form ( i'm talking more about Sheng Shaoh Shieh ... ) they can create a lot of trouble, as they did in 2006. They have a great women's double pair, they just need to get their women's single ready. Sheng Shao Shieh has already beaten xie xingfang once.
    And of course Netherlands (eventhough with the fantastic and magical Mia Audina =/) They still have Yao Jie (but i think she won't play against china .. ) and Judith Meleundijks.

    But i guess China is just too far from the other countries ... and it's beginning to get me bored =/

    Chance to win:

    1st single : Mew Choo WONG vs Ning ZHANG 40%

    2nd single : Pei Xian WONG vs Xingfang XIE 35%

    3rd single : Lydia CHEAH vs Lin ZHU 30%

    1st double : WPT/CEH vs YW/ZJW 35&

    2nd double : QSL/LPS vs GL/HS 25%

    Overall, the chance to win those matches for malaysian's team is 33%

    (Just my opinion)
