CHN would only really be weak in the MD department, and maybe 3rd XD.
but MS, WS and WD would still be able to deliver the points.

ZB/ YY VS Kor LYD/ LHJ. The China pair won at final.
LD VS LCW from Mas. LD will win.
WYH VS Zhou Mi or TIne. Still WYH had better chance to win.
CY/FHF VS Any strong MD. Still 50:50 chance.
DJ / YY VS Kor LKW/LHJ. DJ/YY will win.
Probably World All Stars will get 1 or 2 points from China Sudirman Cup but maybe China also can win 3-0 against rest of the world.

Lee Yong Dae + Tan Boon Heong, for example, as suggested from one Bcer last night. Chemistry will not be an issue IF we do not rush. The Non-China team will figure out what's the best lineup.
..If so, consider Zhou Mi as a challenger to CHN (if one considers Hong Kong to be separate from CHN)..WS can also feature Tine R., but she has to be fit. MD and XD will be 50-50, more or less. Those are the only events that i think the World has a chance in.
one good reason to adopt the ryder cup system is for both team captains to name their players and order of play independently, i.e. LD may play against SDK and LCW with BCL. that will certainly more interesting.
LYD obviously did not reserve anything in the XD match. He will not perform any better even if Korean use another MD for the 3rd match.
Relying too much on LYD and LHJ is Korean team's lethal weakness. On the contrary, every Chinese player looked full of energy.

At second thought, what if The Krorean use their second MD to share Lee YD's heavy load, Lee might be better off in the first XD by using all his energy and effort? The first game really sets the tone for the whole match.

..definite weakness but at the same time they had no choice, if very limited at all. For 2 yrs already, since the last SC, LYD and LHJ have been basically their most consistent & dependable doubles players, who are still playing. So how not to rely on both of them too much?
