    Wow, only 4 countries vying for spot. I think it shows where the interest of badminton lies in this region. Peru might be a dark horse. Brazil... nah. For the record... GO CANADA!

    According to the first post, it's ONE team, so I guess you'll be rooting for USA

    In the TC, it wasn't as close. Canada won 4-1:

    1 MS Raju Rai-Andrew Dabeka 10-21 12-21
    2 MD Howard Bach/Daniel Gouw-William Milroy/Mike Beres 9-21 15-21
    3 MS Ted Shear-Bobby Milroy 5-21 5-21
    4 MD Raju Rai/Christopher Hales-Andrew Dabeka/Toby Ng 21-16 21-19
    5 MS Arnold Setiada-Stephan Wojcikiewicz 15-21 10-21

    From the results..

    ..(okay, i haven't followed the happenings & going ons esp. for the U.S. team), but noticed Bob M. wasn't featured in their match vs. Canada & Eric Go is not in the TC team. And for the Uber Cup team, i thought Eva Lee would play 1st WS in their match vs. Canada?..hmm, anyone knows the stories behind them??..:confused:

    The Finals will be today, with both Canada and USA facing each other again in the Thomas and Uber Cups.

    Canada should take both qualification spots based on the performance on Sunday.

    Yup, that's right! Canada reached first position at group stage match yesterday and today's preliminary final will decide whether CAN or USA which represents Pan America zone to Jakarta TUC final phase. Overall, Canada teams show indication that they will win...

    Guys, I'm always skeptical about Canada. They play better when they're the underdogs. When they're favourites, they tend to make things a little difficult for themselves. Almost like a Malaysia kinda syndrome. I hope they pull through though. Would be nice to have another country to root for in Jakarta.

    TC: Canada 3-0 USA. Canada moves on to TC proper
    UC: Canada 1-3 USA. USA moves on to UC proper

    I think Canada really missed Anna Rice in the UC qualifying. She could have made the difference in qualifying
