    China vs. Korea

    likely lineup:

    MS: Lin Dan vs. Park Song Hwan
    WS: Wang Yihan vs. Hwang Hye Youn
    MD: Cai Yun / Fu Haifeng vs. Lee Yong Dae / Jung Jae Sung
    WD: Yu Yang / Du Jing vs. Lee Hyo Jung / Lee Kyung Won
    XD: He Hanbin / Yu Yang vs. Lee Yong Dae / Lee Hyo Jung

    or maybe Zheng Bo / Ma Jin instead of He/Yu.

    while the competition oncourt is important, another development off the court is also gain relevance. for the first time in Sudirman Cup history, we have a final with both teams not sponsored by Yonex.

    Wouldn't it serve China better to field someone other than Wang Yihan against Hwang Hye-Youn? After all, such a move would surprise the Korean coaches who must have already primed HHY to play against WYH.

    True, Wang Yihan is in form right now.
    But this is a hugely important event... :rolleyes:

    I think Lee Yong Dae and Jung Jae Song can .. give one point to Korea. C'mon, sure you can beat them. Kkk/tbh can steal one game, no?

    I'll say CHN should get the 2 points from singles. the other 3 doubles are fairly even with KOR with upper hand for MD and CHN with WD. XD will be a true 50/50. so, CHN needs a point from the 3 doubles that should be do-able.

    The overwhelming support..

    ..at least in BC, will definitely be on the Koreans, as the underdogs...
    They have a very tall order at hand. Winning all of the doubles events is their only way to win this cup. They should be playing with less pressure.
    If they miraculously do win, LYD and LHJ (hopefully it'll be the "Mrs. Lee Hyde Jung" who'll show up) will be forever remembered as the hero and heroine of this edition...
    Good luck to the Koreans!!:cool:

    Final prediction:
    China will win 3-0 or if the worst scenario came, the win 3-2.

    XD: HHB/YY had to all out in this match. Even if they lost this tie, they had to make sure to make LYD/LHJ play a very long three sets to drain their energy. 51:49 for the China pair. Cause Korea pair play in a very high pressure. they had to win this match to give their team a chance to win the cup.

    MS: As long as LD focus 100%, he will win easily. He need to play his best all out and make sure this match end quickly.

    WS: WYH need to play her usual self. Try not to make many mistakes and wrap this match as quick as possible. But LYB may be will play XXF cause she never lost playing against HHY if I am not wrong.

    MD : 51:49 for the China pair if they play as well when they play against KKK/TBH. Not to mention if LD and WYH wrap the matches quickly, LYd will have a short time of rest.

    WD : If somehow the score is 2-2. DJ/YY will win against LHJ/LKW. They never lost to Kor pair this year and will win again this time.

    China will again win this CUp. And they will win again next time cause they got quite young teams that will still play in the next two years.

    Go Korea, Go! We can do this! =)

    yeah, we have to win all the doubles to win this. Too much pressure for LYD, LHJ..Hope one of the singles players could win. HHY was good last night! And PSH was soo close!

    Nevertheless, it should be a good game. I'm so excited!

    I would put Bo/MA in XD because of their success against Lee/Lee this year. I don't see Korean have any chance even though I also want to see another country stop China's dominance. I think their only point will come from MD.

    Im rooting for Korea. They have strong Mixed Doubles and Doubles. Probably lucky points from WDs.
