    Default Thomas & Uber Cups Preliminaries Asia Zone 2008: Day 1 (20 Feb)

    It's gonna be a breeze for most seeded teams, with only 1 interesting tie in the Men's Team (Group B) encounter between Singapore and Vietnam.

    Predictions:
    Men's Team
    Japan bt Pakistan
    Singapore bt Vietnam
    Hong Kong bt Sri Lanka
    Thailand bt Macau

    Women's Team
    Japan bt Sri Lanka
    Chinese-Taipei bt Vietnam
    Korea bt Cambodia

    looks like it's all going to be 5-0 encounters.

    the women's event is definitely going to be more interesting than the men's, for me.

    Only the SIN-VIE tie can throw some unpreditability. A lot depends on the first singles match.

    Really? Very good news as this may be the first time RTM is showing live for Thomas/Uber qualifiers. Or is it daily highlights?

    The matches between SIN and VIE were close as expected.
    Kendrick Lee just managed to beat Nguyen Tien-Minh 22-20, 21-19.
    Derek Wong also just beat Nguyen Quang-Minh 23-21, 21-18.

    Strangely, Hendri Kurniawan Saputra was not playing...instead Kendrick Lee was also playing in the doubles, partnering Hendra Wijaya to beat Nguyen Hoang-Hai/Nguyen Huy-Giang 21-15, 24-22.

    As expected, all the matches went to the seeded teams.

    VIE gave a tough fight to SIN. 3 of the 4 matches (don't know what happened to the MD2 match) were pretty close, but SIN did not drop a single set.

    With Kendrick, Ashton and Derek spearheading the singles section, it's a truly Singaporean victory.

    are you implying that Ronald isn't part of the team?
