Park has a good record against Lin Dan
Lee/Jung MD on good form are pretty undefeatable
Lee/Lee XD olympic champs!
WD seem alright too
GO KOREA FOR THE WIN!!

3-0 or 3-2 for china, just don't see any way for Korea to take it... MS and WS will be a lock as most ppl state and if they decide to field LYD for both the MD and XD, no matter how physically fit he is, I don't see him being effective in the second event....

i think the lineup won't change as much...but i do think Yu Yang won't play both WD and XD...maybe Zheng/Ma will play mixed...if not...Zhang Yawen should play doubles from her experience...although i don't know if she or any partner could beat the koreans...singles could be a suprise result if park sung hwan plays well...he didn't get the result against sony, but he could prove people wrong...he did play too defensively today and i think LD will beat him easily if he plays the same way..MD will be tough to say..but i think it'll be an awesome one to watch...i'm in row 3 AA xD!! it's gunna be AWESOME!!!

I'll support Korea tonight for the sake of spreading the trophies around a bit...
MS: Lin Dan will win.
MD: Jae Sung and man eater Yong Dae will win
WS: 50-50. Yihan has the edge.
XD: Man eater Yong Dae will win again
If Korea manages to win this, they must 'Datuk-ise' Yong Dae (lol)

10 Reasons Why I am Cheering for Korea
10) Love that never say die KOR spirit
9) To show that 3 Doubles wins can overcome 2 Singles losses
8) Silence the home crowd
7) "Little" Victor can topple the "Giant" Li Ning
6) Kimchi is spicier than Sichuan
5) To see Li Mao crack a satisfying smile as the winning point is secured
4) To prove that Lee Hyo Jung can indeed hang with the big dogs
3) Lee Yong Dae can play and win 2 matches
2) Hwang Hye Youn (need I say more)
1) My PAW

CHN vs KOR -- likely lineup:
XD: Zheng Bo/Ma Jin vs Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung -- CHN will field Zheng/Ma for 2 reasons: first is to save Yu Yang's energy for the crucial WD and simply because it's Zheng/Ma who have the upperhand against Lee/Lee. I don't think He/Yu had beaten Lee/Lee in their previous few encounters Even if CHN loses this pt, they can still secure the victory with a fresher Yu Yang.
MS: Lin Dan vs Park Sung Hwan -- there's no way Lin Dan is going to let Park humiliate him again in front of the home-crowds.
WS: Wang Yihan vs Hwang Hye Youn -- Wang is the clear favorite. if WS is played first, then, it's pretty likely CHN will win 3-0.
MD: Fu Haifeng/Cai Yun vs Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae -- now, if the pts are split at 2-1, this is the only pt that CHN can afford to lose also, and one that KOR desperately needs to win.
WD: Du Jing/Yu Yang vs Lee Kying Won/Lee Hyo Jung -- if the scoreline is 2-2, then, this will be hell of a cracker. The CHN pair has a slight advantage, but if KOR plays tactically like in the AE 2008, they might yet steal a win. Nevertheless, I think Du/Yu are the favorites.
Overall, CHN can wrap up the tie pretty early (3-0), if they win the XD. If they lose in XD (and maybe MD), then, they will wake it 3-2.

Zheng Bo / Yu Yang will play XD. Others are as expected.

That's a possibility..
1. The 2 Singles events play before the 4th event.
2. The WD is played as the 1st event, as it is perhaps KOR's weakest doubles event. IMO, KOR's XD has a better chance than their WD.
...and i'm already yawning...

Zheng Bo is much more effective in his offensive play than He Han Bin!!
WYH vs HHY 85-15 chance IMO.
Since LHJ play quite well yesterday, it's time for her to play with amazing amount of errors today, as she is is so inconsistent

Btw, you should meet up with 2 other BCers, abedeng & copadh. They are there watching the tourney,;try PM-ing them and have a mini get-together.
As for the cheering squad in Guangzhou, i was thinking, since their teams are out, perhaps all of the INA and MAS (and maybe Danish) supporters can come back and help lend their support to the KOR supporters..It'll be all the "Jia Yous" going against "Dae Han Min Guk!(clap clap clap clap clap)..
