Looking at the Uber line-up Msia vs HK also, HK didnt field their best WS, Wang Chen & Yip didnt play.
Same with Msia, our WMC, Lim PS were rested. They fielded the juniors wherever possible. Must have been very tiring to finish at so late yesterday nite & then have to play again this morning.
cheeyf : Either CEH was injured or it was strategy(that almost worked) to rest CEH.
It was strategy in the match against Spore to field Lim Pek Siah/Ng Hui Lin.
In the match against Spore, Rexy said they chose that combination based on what is best style/formation against Spore's 2nd WD.
Our junior WD not bad, just Goh has less International exposure than Ng HL. Ng with XD partner Lim Khim Wah play more in senior level, trying to qualify for OG. Hui Lin also more successful in XD, winning 2007 World Juniors, so...

I saw Park Sung Hwan playing doubles with the doubles players during training in HK Open 2007. So, don't under-estimate him. Well, Korea is well-known for fielding "strange" line-ups, don't they Some more, the tie is inconsequential to them (and Hong Kong Women Team as well).
It will be a white-wash for Team MAS, although Jung Jae Sung/Lee Jae Jin might spring a surprise or two.

So, MAS will win 3-0?

While all the teams fielding their "Wierd" Line-ups, MAS still the one being too conservative.
why did they care about finishing top here?
Korean doesn't really care at all, so do HK & Japan UC team
I don;t think MAs UC can beat HK if the later fieled WC & Yippies.

Thomas Cup : someone mentioned OG qualifying points, MS - WCH & Hafiz need them - dunno how many matches they need to win to get the points.
I actually expected WCH to be rested, Hafiz & Arif to play today but <shrug>
MD - Zakry/Fairuz I understand, they didnt get to play in one of the earlier matches, it was wrapped up at 3-0, they need OG pts. I expected the oldies CTF/LWW to be fielded today though cos they didnt play yesterday.
