    Japan on the move...

    I think Japan have some decent players. Their doubles look strong with good efforts against both the top Danish pairs, and also by beating the best USA doubles pair. I doubt if they can beat the INA singles though. But I am sure you are right: Japan will have a "Die hard" attitude for this one... :p

    Sato on his best day can beat any top player including Lin Dan...remembered he almost beat Lin Dan at the WC.....he had a really good year last year....but he had a slump in form....he is really fast....and i mean really...

    Yes he is. I also remember he managed to beat Jonassen in one big tournament (was it indeed at the WC?), so I know he has a good potential. But as you say, he is not consistently so good, and I think the other Japanese players would find it even harder to beat the INA singles players, so I still think Japan will rely heavily on their doubles if they are to have a chance. Still, in a "do or die" kind of match, who can tell in advance?

    I'm sure Japan will be at their best tomorrow esp. infront of homecrowd. They will want to pay tribute to the fans who came in droves to support them yesterday. I can't wait to see this match as well as the match between Malaysia and Korea tomorrow. I'm already having a fever, badminton fever that is!!

    Ya.... Perhaps JAP could take 2 pts from MS1 & MD1?
    - Base on 21 scoring system & current form of TH, I think everybody able to beat him. TH just big talking now, but not proof by the result. I really don't hope TH become second "big mouth" after XXZ.
    - And Candra/Sigit, they have own personnel issue each other. Bad attitute and co-operation of Sigit, and Candra seems not in his mood coz he is going to USA.

    Really doubt if INA meet CHN in semi-finals.... CHN may present INA 3 - egg.

    i rate japanese chances of winning as 20% to INA's 80%
    As for japan getting at least 1 match i'm giving it a 50% chance
    they are not weak...they r probably the strongest outside the top 5 team

    Show some respect to others, be it TH or XXZ or whoever.

    Do you know how XXZ gets his nickname of "big mouth"? That's more of a positive meaning (cute), rather than being annoying. If you don't know the story behind it, don't pretend you know, and just attack in public blindly. :mad:
