    There is no surprise in the Uber Cup selection. Is Bella's ranking above Linda? Bella is more promising while Linda has been languishing. Febe is GPG at best. We can't expect much from the singles. They are lucky if they can win their group.

    Hendra will be Thomas team captain while Firda will be Uber team captain.
    All the best to our Thomas & Uber Teams.

    Guess this means that INA Team is seriously considering putting Simon at MS2 when it counts.

    It would interesting which will be INA's MS2 depending on which will be CHINA's MS2 which is either THW or DPY.Lin Dan for sure will not ever be MS2.CHINA might put up THW as MS2 to have a chance to beat Simon.Note that if Simon is MS2, only Ihsan can be put as MS3.-Indra

    We are likely to a rematch of Sudirman Cup's FHF/CY vs. Rian/Angga this time too.

    I am thinking the opposite. THW is faster, and Simin has yet to win more than once against THW. DPY is a grinder. Simon has more than once beat DPY.

    I would trust DPY to play in a big team event, but I think that THW has a better chance of beating Simon, also on account of being younger.

    The one that has higher chance will be field against simon =x lets see who they field. THW or DPY, I still think they will field DPY.

    If there is one thing I know about Indonesia, it is never to underestimate the decisions they make in the Thomas Cup :)

    Make or break decision. Love it!

    INA vs CHN is very far away, it probably only will happen in the final if both top the group.

    I think when it gets to quarter final, it will be more interesting to analyse the lineup.

    Right now, probably the most interesting is MAL vs KOR. Both can mix and match the doubles players.

    Talking about INA teams, they dropped Sony because Sony still not fit yet, I think it is a good decision, you need fit players even though they are less experienced and lower rank.

    Looking at the history of Thomas Cup, sometimes the head to head in individual competition is not a good indication.
    The pressure of team competition is different. I have not been following Du Pengyu or Tian Houwei in the league. Did they play well in team event ?

    The only way MAS can Beat Korea is to win all the MS. I still don't think that mas MD can take on KOREA's MD >

    One thing I really am surprised about is no Kido and Gideon.

    Based on world rankings, Denmark has a stronger team than Indonesia.

    I am sure the lineup against SIN and THA would be TS,Hayom,SS,Ahsan/Hendra,Rian/Angga

    Meanwhile against Nigeria, Ihsan and Berry/Ricky will play.
