Sudirman Cup 2009: Day 3 : May 12
Sudirman Cup 2009: Day 3
Waited for someone to start this thread, but no BCer has done so.
Tournamentsoftware.com (click here) has been providing us with results daily.
Interesting match today, Day 3, Tuesday 12-May-2009, should be between Denmark and Korea. Perhaps Denmark has the advantage to win.

KOR vs DEN (Possible Lineup)
XD: Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung vs Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter-Juhl -- the KOR pair has an edge. But, anything can happen.
MS: Park Sung Hwan vs Peter Gade -- Peter has to take this one, no question abt that.
MD: Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae vs Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen -- this is a must win game for either side to ensure that their team progress on. A 50-50 game and the KOR pair does have a slight edge.
WS: Hwang Hye Youn vs Nana Brosolat Jensen -- a must win for DEN, but not so for KOR esp if KOR is leading 2-1 at this stage. Hwang has the advantage.
WD: Lee Kyung Won/Lee Hyo Jung vs Lena Frier-Kristensen/Kamilla Rytter-Juhl -- if the score is poised at 2-2, then Lee/Lee will win this one for KOR.
KOR to take this tie 3-2 or 4-1.

^^On that note..^^
..tonight could be a pretty subdued night/day in BC; no MAS and INA playing..well, maybe we'll spot madbad in here to support his HHY..
IMO, MS, WS & MD could go 50-50. It could come down to the last match of the tie..wow
And whichever team wins, that'll set-up another great showdown on Thursday involving MAS..

Rasmussen may return to strengthen Danish team
GUANGZHOU: Denmark’s top women’s singles player Tine Rasmussen may join the team in the later stages of the Sudirman Cup to boost the team’s hopes of qualifying for the Division One semi-finals.
The return of the former All-England winner to the team will spell trouble for Malaysia as Rasmussen is a better bet to win a vital point for Denmark when the two teams meet in their last group match on Thursday.
“Rasmussen has been injured for quite some time and it became worse during the All-England this year. She reached the women’s singles final but lost to China’s Wang Yi Han,” said Denmark’s coach Finn Traerup Hansen on Sunday.
“She is back in training now and we thought it would be a little bit of a risk to bring her here. But, of course, we can always consider flying her here later.”
Rasmussen is on the list of 13 players submitted by Denmark for the Sudirman Cup and she is eligible to take part in any of the remaining matches.
The young Nanna Brosolat Jensen, who fills in for Rasmussen, does not seem to have what it takes to beat the others in the tournament. She lost to Zhou Mi 18-21, 11-21 in the opening match against Hong Kong on Sunday.
Denmark were made to sweat before winning 3-2.
Denmark’s top men’s singles player Peter-Gade Christensen said they would have to be at their best against South Korea and Malaysia to book a berth in the last four.
“This is a very close race. Every match counts and the next two matches for Denmark is everything,” said Christensen.
Doubles player Mathias Boe said he and his partner Carsten Morgensen have a chance to beat the Korean and Malaysian pairs.
“It will be very difficult. Jung Jae-sung had been away fulfilling his military obligations but I saw him play against the Malaysians today (Sunday) and they were brilliant,” said Boe.

Which team does INA prefer to face in the SF?
Definitely not KOR, so, we better pray for DEN to beat them to lessen KOR's chance of being the group winner. As for DEN or MAS, I think INA will prefer to face DEN to a certain extent. There's a chance of INA to win the XD (tough game expected), WS (if Tine does not play), and MD (tough game expected too, but with Hendra Setiawan's experience, they might just pull through). MS and WD are also winnable but the odds of that will be lower compared to the other 3 disciplines.

PHI 3 vs LUX 0 -- 10 easy points won in PAW
TPE 2 vs FRA 0 -- Pi Hongyan will make it 1-2, but TPE will seat the tie in the WD (10 pts as well)
IND 2 vs UKR 0 -- Arvind Bhat just take the first set. Shouldn't be a problem.
SCO 2 vs AUS 0 -- likewise, SCO will take this one!
THA 1 vs GER 0 -- Boonsak is now strectched to 3-sets, but I don't see THA losing in XD or WD (9 pts)
The only tie that could be stretched will be:
SWI 1 vs TUR 0 -- rubber-set in MS, with Christian Boesinger saving 3 match pts!

BP variety of plays may pulls him through. Hopes he dont choked as in the 2nd games.
