these are the H2H between the 3 title contenders of the men's singles world title. the data are mainly from BWF's website with the added time history of their matches. if you look at their win/loss trend, LCW is most likely to get a win next since he lost his last 2 matches to both. so, it's LCW's advantage to make that 'next' match at the WC and LD and CL probably would like to meet him before to get that loss out of the way. considering their ages, experience, form, H2H etc and China have the home advantage I'll put CL slightly ahead of both LD and LCW, and LD slightly ahead of LCW.
