I won't be surprised..
..to see the INA squad empty their benches and play their younger players, knowing well they've secured a SF berth..
On the other hand, both DEN and MAS would want to play their top players in order to clinch a SF appearance..Literally, all five events could go either way and depending on the order of play, it could be decided by the last match..
Prepare the fireworks!!..

Malaysia-Denmark will be the one to watch. Its like do or die matches.
And Indonesia-China will be more relax.

Its depends on if Tine could make it or not.........If Tine could not make it to GZ.....MAS have better chance to qualified to SF..cause mas MD and WD are not themselves in this tournament...........other wise...!!.....
As for the Migraine of PG.......It will make PG stronger and more determine to win against LCW....

As Chris mentioned, INA vs CHN will be an exhibition match (from INA's perspective). The strategy is to play all the remaining players brought to Guangzhou and thereby allowing them to earn valuable ranking pts for seeding purposes at the WC despite losing (esp for Rian/Yoke and Devin/Lita).
MD: Hendra Setiawan/Mohd Ahsan or Rian Sukmawan/Yonathan Suryatama Dasuki vs Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun -- this will be an interesting spectable if Hendra/Ahsan are fielded.
WS: Adriyanti Firdasari vs any player CHN field.
MS: Simon Santoso vs Chen Jin or Bao Chunlai
WD: Nitya Krishinda/Greysia Polii vs Du Jing/Yu Yang
XD: Devin Lahardi/Lita Nurlita vs Zheng Bo/Ma Jin or Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen
Except for the first match, all the other ties should be won by CHN.

Knowing that INA won't be at their full force, CHN might as well rested their top guns too tonight.
BTW, Luis Pongoh did mentioned they will fielded their strongest line-ups and try to beat China to top the group and avoids KOREA in SF

(thats it, I've been reading too many reformasi papers )

With WD playing just before XD, dont they'll field WPT. And MD as usual as 3rd match, too tiring also for KKK.
Unless they change the order with MD playing 1st, then KKK/NHL will be the combo for XD. If not, it'll have to be Fairuz/NHL.

MAS vs DEN
These players will win it for Malaysia today:
3. EE Hui/WPT
I may be wrong but I am almost always right.
