    Korea paid the price for not put their World Champion into the lineup. Congrats Indonesia!

    Blame it on the KBA. LYD/YYS can't seal the deal to put the pressure on the INA squad once they were up by 1.

    LOL...indeed...excuses and excuses and excuses......

    I hope the INA players deliver the Thomas Cup on Sunday but it's not going to be easily certainly especially if we face MAS.

    MAS has to dominate the singles to have any chance at retaking the crown against INA...doubles is a sure loss

    INA fears DEN more than MAS in my opinion. They have 2 top MS players surely will contribute points against INA young guns.

    For one Ahsan/Setiawan do not match up playing European pairs especially vs. Kolding/Rasmussen.

    Indonesian team fielded much fresher team to the notch. Ahsan /Hendra does not even play that well. Kim/Kim.. They tried.. But too tired. Almost no change from them from yesterday! I think, Tommy should play as last singles... Or only against LCW. Congrats to indonesia.

    I think MAS will go into court with Den... all nervous and apprehensive..
    with Korea...MAS has this feeling of "oh they are stronger than us. nothing to lose why worry"... but with Denmark..its "they are about the same as us and not as strong as KOR... we should win this.. can we.. can we....nervous nervous"

    LOL, sour grapes-- do you think the Group Stage matches are played for fun?

    If Korea had topped their Group instead of Malaysia, they would be scheduled in Malaysia's position for the Quarters & Semis! LOL, sour grapes...

    Ahsan and Hendra were defeated by MAS scratch pair in 2014 Thomas Cup SF right after beating LYD/YYS in QF. Almost similar case now.
    I am expecting classic final INA Vs MAS. Remind me of Thomas Cup in 90s. I think It would be more interesting if it happened in KL or Jakarta. The stadium is almost empty in Kushan. It would never happen in KL or Jakarta.

    MAS is mentally stronger than DEN, they have what it takes to make the final. Denmark are vulnerable.

    INA was mentally stronger than KOR that was a key difference in their performance. This is INA's golden chance to win the Thomas Cup.

    IND girls have participated in the Uber cup 5 times and have won medals 4 times. (1957,1960, 2014, 2016) :)
