    On paper, based on the confirmed lineup for both teams, KOR's chances of winning by 3-2 is higher than CHN's as KOR is likely to take both doubles and the 3rd singles.

    Had CHN fielded Tian Houwei as MS2, leaving Lin Dan as MS3, then KOR posibly winning by 3-1 or at least 3-2 might be even higher as THW is untested on the big occasions, his only experience being the recent Thomas Cup where he only played one group match against a relatively easy opponent.

    Sadly, CHN's MDs continue to be their Achilles' heel since the post-LOG years before which I think CHN has been overly dependent on Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng to deliver the goods. Still I believe CHN is hoping for this pair to upset the KOR MD2 as Gao Huan is not expected to overcome the vastly experienced and steady Lee Hun Il. We'll see.

    It's a battle of wills and psychology, not just skills.

    A very tentative start by Chen Long, too uptight. Meanwhile Son WH is on top of his game and doing everything right so far.

    The Youtube link doesn't work. It's blocked, even if I try proxies.

    Any other live stream links for the match?

    Since triumphing at the World Championships, the newly crowned WC Chen Long is not so much the predator as prey to other competitors, the pressure is now mostly on him. Let's see how he handles his new-found role.

    Son WH has to win the 2nd set if he wants to win.

    Team Championships is a different ballgame from the individuals as proven time and time again.
