    At this rate, the much anticipated matchup between China and Indonesia in the Thomas Cup final may not even happen.

    while Bella's face is far from relax, and there are many strips wrapping her leg

    I dont see Indian women winning any of the doubles. Just if they got charged up by Saina / Sindhu wins, you'd never know! Fingers crossed.

    If Thomas INA is going down 0-2, it will put more pressure on Rumbaka. I don't think he could handle it. So INA must take this MD1 to lengthen the breath.

    Um, that post of mine you quoted referenced a potential matchup in the Thomas Cup, not the Uber Cup.

    Gutta needs some massive remodeling before she can be considered a serious threat in the WD alongside her partner. They will be getting those first two points to get that extra boost, though.

    True. Even if Hayom makes it 2-1, Rian/Angga also would be under pressure against a strong Korea pair. Not good.

    I thought INA's md2 and ms3 are too strong for the koreans. Ms2 will be the deciding match.

    Bella is getting it right now, only lifting clears when necessary, most of the time going for net play, fast flat exchanges, drop shots and body smashes.

    The momentum has swung in Bella's favour and the pressure is building for Sindhu. Let's see how both of them cope in the rubber.

    The shuttle tracker shows Bella playing mostly to Sindhu's front court, that's the way.

    Once Bella gets a good lead of 4-5 points, she should be in a position to comfortably win the match.
