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.
