    Predictions:

    WOMEN'S TEAM
    Denmark to beat Russia and face Germany in the SF.

    France to beat Scotland

    Netherlands vs England is 50-50. England has an edge in the doubles, with Netherlands in the Singles. Strange though that Yao Jie is not playing in singles :eek:

    MEN'S TEAM
    Denmark to beat Sweden. They will surely win the European Team Championships very comfortably with Peter Gade, an in-form Kenneth Jonassen, Jens Eriksen/Martin Lundgaard Hansen and Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen in the doubles. The only weak link is perhaps Joachim Persson. Strangely, no Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen as I thought it will be a good opportunity for them to win some ranking pts.

    Germany to beat Wales

    Poland vs Netherlands can go the wire. Poland has Przmyslaw Wacha and Michal Logosz/Robert Mateusiak to win 2 points. Netherlands has 2 strong singles in Dicky Palyama and Eric Pang.

    England to beat Russia

    England Uber team are in bad shape, losing the 1st two singles in straight games.

    Denmark 1 up on Russia. France 1 up on Scotland.

    As expected, Poland and Netherlands shared the first 4 points, with Wacha and Logosz/Mateusiak contributing the points. Wacha became the hero as he partnered Adam Cwalina to seal the last tie and won it 3-2! Congrats to Poland!

    The Semi-Finals lineup:
    MEN'S TEAM
    Denmark vs Germany -- another 3-0 sweep for Denmark.

    Poland vs England -- could be another nail-biter here. Wacha and Logosz/Mateusiak to contribute the first 2 points, but, England has the edge in the other 2 singles and the second doubles. England to win this one, but, Poland has another chance to qualify for the Thomas Cup.

    WOMEN'S TEAM
    Germany vs Denmark -- it will be close with Xu Huaiwen and the second WD for Germany able to win the points. Nevertheless, Germany should qualify by beating Scotland in the playoff.

    Scotland vs Netherlands -- no question, Netherlands to win.

    With England I am not that surprised cos Holland is a decent team...especially in the singles department...But France got knocked out is a dissappoinment considering they have Pi Hong Yuan who are ranked top 10 in the world...
