    Default Thomas and Uber cups - the alternative

    Thomas and Uber Cups - the alternative

    The winners are already a foregone conclusion even before the preliminaries were started. Itís about time we have an event like Ryderís cup with China against the rest of the world, may be every two years. Iím sure China is up for it but just not quite sure the ROW can gel together like the Europeans for the Ryderís.

    We also need a new format as if we keep the current format with 5 matches, 1 for each individual event; China will still win. To counter that, we probably will have 3 or 5 matches for each event to exhaust Chinaís talents pool.

    If you look at the current ranking for MS, ROW has

    Lee Chong Wei,
    Peter Hoeg Gade
    Sho Sasaki
    Kenichi Tago and
    Lee Hyun Il.

    Wouldnít you want to see them battle it out against

    Lin Dan,
    Chen Long,
    Chen Jin
    Du Pengyu, and
    Wang Zhengming?

    ROW should have the advantages over China for the 5x5 format but on the other hand if we play a 3x5 format (3 matches for each event) that should be more even between the 2 teams.

    There used to be the Asia Cup for men. That was a format of top 2 singles and 1 doubles. Couldn't last long after the Asian financial crisis.

    Interesting. China still has a big chance of winning against ROW.


    Let's say we do 2/3 for each event.


    MS
    Lin Dan vs LCW - In favor of China
    Chen Long vs Peter Gade - In favor of China
    Chen Jin vs Sho Sasaki - 50/50
    Result: 2/3 in favor of China


    WS
    Wang Yihan vs Saina - In favor of China
    Wang Xin vs Tine Baun - 100% lol
    Wang Shixian vs Schenk - 50/50
    Result: 2/3 in favor of China


    MD
    Cai/Fu vs Jung/Lee - 50/50
    Chai/Guo vs Boe/Mogensen - In favor of ROW
    Hong/Shen vs Ko/Yoo - In favor of ROW
    Result: 2/3 in favor of ROW


    WD
    Yu/Wang vs Kim/Ha - In favor of China
    Tian/Zhao vs Fujii/Kakiiwa - In favor of China
    Bao/Zhong vs Maeda/Suetsuna - Not sure
    Result: 2/3 in favor of China


    XD
    Zhang/Zhao vs Nielsen/Pedersen - 50/50
    Xu/Ma vs Ahmad/Natsir - In favor of China
    He/Bao vs Chen/Cheng - 50/50?
    Result: Could go either way


    So China still has a better chance of winning for MS,WS and WD. XD they also stand a chance and MD is the only one where China doesn't stand a chance against ROW.
