    Day 3 of TUC will pit most of the 'stronger' Teams against each other. We have the 12noon slot and 6pm slot.
    In TC Group A Day 3 match, interest will be on China vs Korea, and it starts at 12noon. TC China, still holds the 'favourite' & 'avoid till Final' tag.
    "IF" Korea happens to beat China in this Group matches, then there is a possibility that TC Teams playing in the 6pm slot, may "try" to loss to "avoid China" in QF.
    Doesn't the BWF learns their lesson, and can the BWF now seeing the'pitfall', change the TC China vs Korea to 6pm slot?

    The Question is what will happen if Korea bt China . . . . Maybe Korea found a strategy to beat China to have an easier path in QF, but other top Teams may still try to 'avoid China till Final".

    Since LYD not in the squad, what option do they have? Win all single? Win both double and steal 1 single?

    one interesting point about the new arrangement this TC, only INA as the No2 seed wouldnt be playing CHN until the final. for the others to avoid the top2 in semi they have to win their groups. now for KOR, either they won the group of came 2nd they will still have a chance to meet CHN again in the semi! serve them right for what they tried to play the system 2 years ago.

    Not true that Indo will only meet China in Final. . . .
    "If" Korea beats China, and all other 'Top' Teams tops their respective Groups, China & Indonesia may meet as early as QF.
    And, with the new "Re-Draw" after Group matches completed, the seedings may change as it takes in 9th May World Ranking.

    If KOR beats CHN, however unlikely it may be, then INA and MAS will be seeded 1 and 2. DEN and KOR seeded 3 and 4. CHN could meet any of the 4 in the QF.

    I think JPN is more likely to beat MAS compared to KOR beating CHN.

    I think you mean quarters. KOR could still meet CHN in as early as in the quarters, no matter the outcome in the KOR-CHN group match.

    I will also faint, some time between 12 to 2 am for hopefully 8 hours. Though some may call it sleep instead.

    The most viable strategy is to win both doubles and grab one single. I will not "faint" if KOR does win both doubles, but I have problem conceiving where they will get their singles point from.

    A lot has to go wrong for CHN to lose this one.

    "faint" :D:D
    Their singles point will be either from LHI or SWH.
    But i doubt that it would come from SWH, most probably LHI

    Let's see tomorrow... but it will be very difficult... CHN need to keep their 'unbeatable' image... Otherwise other teams will start preying on them...

    I would love if CHN field their doubles players in MS and singles players in MD. Lose or win, they throw everything into disarray, still progress to QF and still favourites to win the whole thing.

    If KOR does the same thing from 2 years ago, it will be interesting.

    Noway Korea is going to fill with their strongest team in the early rounds. They will play half blinded to lose it purposely. Remember last time LYD were setup to play single against Hafiz? And PSH and LHI were fill to play doubles?

    Expect something interesting to happen tomorrow. :p
