    No, not all teams stand a chance to finish 2nd. absolutely nonsense! Mongolia, Luxembourg and Australia just to name a few that will be in the tournament and they have a combined total of ZERO chance to win, 2nd, 3rd or 4th ....., full stop.

    Only the countries in Group 1 can compete for the cup. The countries in Group 2, 3 and 4 will compete for promotion to the next higher group.

    I think either Denmark or Korea... They both are pretty balanced (with 1 or 2 weak points - but every country bar China has weak points in their squad :P).

    Default Okay..for fun, let's tabulate both KOR's and DEN's chances..

    KOR vs. CHN:
    MS - PSH vs. LD.........................LD in a likely white-wash
    WS - HHY vs. any CHN player........uuummm..
    WD - LHJ & LKW vs. any CHN pair.........45-55 (KOR pair has had success vs. CHN pairs recently)
    MD - JJS & LYD vs. CY & FHF....................55-45 (CHN might upset KOR because JJS hasn't played competitively in a while and they're playing in their own backyard)
    XD - LYD & LHJ vs. HHB & YY.......50-50

    DEN vs. CHN:
    MS - Gade vs. LD........................I think only bananakid would cheer for Gade..
    WS - Tine vs. any CHN player........45-55
    WD - Kristiansen & Juhl vs. any CHN pair......another likely white-wash
    MD - Boe & Mogensen vs. CY & FHF............50-50
    XD - Laybourn & Juhl vs. HHB & YY.............40-60

    Percentage wise, KOR seems to come out just ahead of DEN..

    Default Answer is..

    ..check these:
    http://tournamentsoftware.com/sport/...5F7D&match=898
    http://tournamentsoftware.com/sport/...5F7D&match=899

    It'll affect the order more, if say, CHN plays Yu Yang in 2 events and/or KOR also plays Lee Hyo Jung in 2 events, which are likely..

    well if that particular player "enroll" in two events , then thier physical condition & mental toughness will play an vital part ...

    [quote=ctjcad;1139381Also, which other non-CHN pair(s) can claim to have the same amt of record/result, at least for this yr, as the KOR pair of LHJ & LKW??..[/quote]
    ok, the MAS WD being the world no 1 should have the chance to take a point from CHN. to make it counted both LCW and the MD needed to get the 2 points and I say the chance is 30% at best.

    China has weak pts too, their MD. Just not as badly exposed as the rest.

    Korea is the only team with a realistic chance to try and topple China. Uphill task but if all their doubles partnerships click ......... it could work. It happened before in 2003, although that one major pt came from LHI's defeat of Chen Hong.

    The rest of the teams could only be expected to win at most 2 pts from China.

    Ko SH & Yoo YS is 1 of the Korean pairs (minus gender ) that i find quite decent to watch apart from Lee YD & Jung JS & Lee YD & Lee HJ

    ..again, as i asked, what is it based on?? Have you looked at their record this yr? For one, i can tell you there's another (non-CHN) pair, other than the KOR #1 WD pair, which has done better than the current WD WR#1, this yr.
    Please read my question again, i'm only asking for this yr's record/stats; not last yr's or the yr before.

    Maybe only against the other top few MD pairs in the world, but even then they can win that one on a good day. But yes that would definitely be the one that other teams would have to take!

    Maybe AlanY was basing on their performance late last year, came close to beating a not so match fit Du Jing/Yu Yang in France.

    Even the MAS girls knew that the WR1 came as a fluke of the BWF pts system. This is not to say that the girls are not among the best pairs in the world, but the fitness level and injury problems of Chin Eei Hui limited their progress. Against top CHN and KOR opposition in a highly competitive match, the MAS girls can only sustain 2 1/2 games.

    Then again, looking at the progress of the last few months, it is extremely unlikely for any non-CHN pair to beat a CHN WD pair in the Sudirman Cup. TPE and KOR girls included.
