    Japan has killer doubles? Indonesia and Denmark has better chance imo.
    Besides I don't see no point for the second lineup. If they have "killer doubles" aka "lack killer singles" the tie will never reach MS3, hence LD doesn't have to play at all. I am also assuming SYQ to handle the "not killer" MS2.
    A few skips for LD should be great, considering the "age sutra".

    Are they really going for JOJ? And not HKV? Antonsen is way too unpredictable and unreliable, yet. And imo that's the match it all boils down to in this tie. DEN's only chance is a 3-0. If any of them fails to capitalise it'll be 2-3 or even 1-3 for CHN

    PS: My ever so strong affinity towards CL, bends me towards a 3-0

    Kamura/Sonada have shown they can easily keep up with Zhang/Liu and Endo/ Watanabe will probably exploit Li/Liu's lack of experience..

    If an Inspired Momota shows up, Chen Long can easily fluff his lines. Hence, Lin Dan as a stabiliser being MS2 is must.

    At the end of the day, It's all about How much China rates the Mental Strength and Badminton Capability of Shi Yuqi under tons of pressure
    that decides the lineup.

    Shows, it can easily end up 3-1 for Denmark.

    Hmm.. I am not so sure Kamura/Sonoda can easily keep up with Liu/Zhang though. I know they won the SF BAC but it wasn't an easy win. Not to mention Zhang Nan would be much more in 'battle mode' when it comes to bigger or group tournaments.

    Haven't seen much of Endo/Wata to really sum up their recent performances. CHN would probably send Zheng/Wang instead of Li/Liu to play against them because Zheng is a more speedy and also an (excellent?) XD player. Too bad we couldn't really weigh all the players performance in BAC last month. But I still rate Li/Liu slightly above any Japanese pair.

    Uh oh.. that doesn't sound good. I hope Mogensen is alright.
    That means Denmark MD1 and MD2 are out..?

    Uh ohh there goes DEN's hope of retaining the title. Wish speedy recovery to Mogensen.
    CP/KRJ didn't play WD in European championship either right?

    In that case that lineup is even more likely to fail. There's no way they trust Qiao Bin enough to handle Kazumasa Sakai/Richie Takeshita/Takuma Ueda as MS3. If the match goes all the way to the wire.

    That's bad news for title-holder DEN, Boe/Mogensen combination is the main pillars for Danish squad to gain point, they will serve as first MD.
    Speedy recovery for Carsten Mogensen!

    Not very sure
    They actually also used scratch pair the last time they won the Cup, as Mogensen was not playing as well

    But indeed, it is some big blow in the Danish camp

    They didn’t play. Kamilla didn’t make the travel to Huelva at all citing personal reasons for staying home.
    Same goes for Mogensen.
