    Japan dropped Reiko Shiota from WD2, so, it's increasingly likely they will avoid CHN in the QF.

    So means they will lost to MAS tonite?? Will it be risky if they will rank last 4th in the group?

    Ogura is also still in the team?
    (guess she's waitinf for the next match..)

    And... I think JPN has to lose the last match without getting no more game.

    Again, u got everything jumbled up:
    1. One group has 3 Teams....no one will finish 4th.
    2. On second thought, they might try to sneak a win against MAS and still ensure they ended up 3rd, while feeding MAS to CHN and ENG to INA.

    Actually, it would be better for KOR to lose 0-5 to ENG just now. That would make their life easier by playing a full team against MAS, beat them, and they would still ended up 3rd.

    Because MAS doesn't want to risk losing to DEN in QF.
    Each team has their own strengths and weaknesses. KOR prefers to play it this way, but, it doesn't mean that MAS or ENG has to follow suit.

    PLS help to clarify..

    Too complicated... To me, a team CANNOT lost twice in a group.. If u lost twice u will rank last (3rd) in a group. And in each group (A,B,C,D), only 2 team will be qualify to Quoter final. Means, total of of 8 teams in Quoter final..

    IF Korea LOST to MAS, they are LAST rank.. How can them qualify to Quoter final as well.. Someone pls clear my doubt.. tq

    Well, if they deliberately lost to NED to avoid CHN in the QF, these cuties can all claim themselve an OSCAR awards;)

    Those who finish 2nd & 3rd go into a playoff. The winners (4 of them) then meet the group winners in the QF. Hope that's clear enough.

    As always dude...read the previous posts.....
    The rule doesn't say only the top 2 will qualify for the next round :cool:

    The rule says:
    Each qualified team for the Final will be guaranteed at least 3 matches.
    The top team in each group is through to the QF.
    The second and third team in each group will play again tomorrow in a playoff, determining the 4 teams to play each group winners.

    They just did....Netherlands just beat Japan 3-2 in the Uber Cup which means Japan will finish last. Congrats.

    Now, Indonesia has to beat Netherlands to emerge as group winners....
