    Been watching some of the matches, and I am very impressed with the coverage. The camerawork, choice and handling of equipment, and the cuts are all very, very top-drawer. Overall the lighting has also been close to perfect.

    The organisers and broadcasters need to be congratulated on a job well done.

    lineup is out.

    LCW vs. Tago
    Tan/Hoon vs. Endo/Hayakawa
    CWF vs. Momota
    Goh/Tan vs. Sonoda/Kamura
    DL vs. Ueda

    first 2 points will be crucial.

    LCW should take the first point.

    MD1 / MS2 will be 50-50 imho.

    It will be close. And that means who can control their nerves will win this.

    Let's just pray it won't go to the 3rd singles. Because Malaysia's record since 1992 is ridiculously poor.

    WSX's face is becoming so spotted and mottled that she'd best take care that CL doesn't dump her for WYH. :p

    She needs a good skin care regimen stat to restore that complexion of hers which used to be so creamy and clear! Maybe she should look into wearing make-up on court, that is if it won't run with all the sweat and make her look like a nightmare. :D Some of the Korean and Danish girls seem to practically glow so much on court that I swear they must be using tons of foundation.

    That really surprises me. Darren has been picked over the fighting spirit of Goh. In a tight situation like this, pick the fighter.

    between these 2 countries, there can only be 2 outcomes. either they rise to the occasion, or collapse under pressure.

    i wonder which one each country will choose?

    Is that set in stone? From what I've seen, the Tago that has shown up for the TC is the 'good' Tago.
    On the other hand, would have loved to see how an inspired Momota could do against LCW.

    No matter what it's gonna be a good day for fans.

    Despite me hoping for a Malaysia 3-1 victory, I can't help but feel that the tide is in favour of Japan. Lee Chong Wei's struggle against Tommy gives me a nasty feeling that Tago will pull off a huge upset, and cause the rest of the team to melt down. If LCW wins, Malaysia has a better chance but still would be hard pressed to win the 2 remaining points.

    I call either a 3-0 victory for JPN if LCW loses or a 3-2 victory for Japan if LCW wins. The only way I can see Malaysia pulling it off is a 3-1 victory through MS#1 and both MD.

    LCW is badminton's equivalent of cricket's Saffers.
    Will be live up to his choker's tag today?
