    Congratz to India. It's been over 40 years since they got to the semi-finals of the Thomas Cup? Nice of them to get through. India has always had a good MS lineup in the last 5 years, but it was their MD that disappointed. With Satwik & Chirag, now they have a top 5 or top 10 MD team. However, it seems like India has not figured out their second MD team. Anyways, I think their toughest competition will come tomorrow though, as the semi-final teams look a lot more stronger and more balanced.

    This doesn't mean that India can't win the Thomas Cup. But things need to go their way (ie. Laksha Sen has to win his matches, and so do the other India MS, and Satwik & Chirag have to win, because the 2nd MD team for India is a liability against the remaining semi-final teams).

    India with the three men's single like Denmark now, and India have so strong MD1.

    I think of something, but I don't dare to say out soon.

    LZJ gets to experience the same thing as LCW did many times, the rest of his team is too weak for him to win Thomas cup

    Chirag pair played well today, credit where it's due. It was apparent that Goh/Din's plan was to pressure their low serves, and because they aren't exactly powerful or tall players, they got easily countered by a few flick serves especially when they placed so much emphasis at the net. Mathias Boe did a great job there.

    Strong MD 1 who are not dominant or consistent as they were in later part of 2019. Tomorrow Md1 will be interesting. Also Sen has a negative h2h vs Heo, I think 2 losses and no win. So not going to be easy. But not going to be really tough either.

    Well done, Malaysian team.
    At the very least, we took India to the full distance unlike China.

    I think lcw time team was stronger. But at that time , the rest of the teams were stronger than that MAS team. Put LCW, kkk/tbh, Daren liew, md2, Chong Feng Wei. Who knows that team would have won this year Thomas cup. Hehe

    The good thing is INA's MD2 and MS3 are fully rested today. Jojo and MD1 also didn't really have a long match.
    Only Ginting will be exhausted after his topsy turvy match against Zhao.

    MAS will probably think back and regret having won yesterday's match as they will face TPE instead whom they can likely beat.

    I think Japan should let Nishimoto play MS2 and Naraoke play MS3.

    I don't believe Tsuneyama can win Christie.

    Hold on. The other QF tie is not over yet. I personally like IND to play DEN in SF for 2 reasons- (I) they would play without pressure, and (II) if at all IND is going to make it big, I would like them to take down big gun all the way() No disrespect to KOR btw

    Players like KSH/SBC or gi jung/sa rang would have probably won this already. Korea needs to improve their MDs, they only have SSJ and he cant partner everyone lol
