    I foresee Korea having the best ever chance to win.
    Mixed feeling, China has been dominating the sports, hope another team to win it, but Korea is not my favourite.

    Anywa, lets see:-


    China vs Korea

    Lin Dan - Park Sung Hwan, 55-45.
    Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng - Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae, 40-60
    Bao Chunlai - Lee Hyun Il, 43-57
    Guo Zhendong/Xie Zhongbo - Lee Jae Jin/Hwang Ji Man, 30-70
    Chen Jin - Shon Seung Mo, 60-40


    I'd say that, whoever won the 2nd singles, will win the Thomas Cup. In this case, Korea stands a better chance, because Korea's MD2 and China's MS3 almost certainly to win.

    Either Korea win it 3-0, or 3-1, they can never go to 3rd Singles

    Guys... LYB already mentioned that Chen Jin injured his back during his match against Hafiz, and probably won't play in the final.:crying:

    Chen Yu will probably be the 3rd MS.

    Korea will win 3-2 with both MD and MS3 considering how poorly Chen Yu has been performing this entire year.

    No way... Chen Yu beat LHI in All-Englands. He's the type of player that if you give only one game instead of like 3 consecutive games, he'll come out with the goods as he can go all out just that one time, no need to conserve energy needed for his smash based game.

    LYB predicted that CHN will win 3-0

    LYB predicted that CHN will win 3-0....

    记者:您希望决赛上中国队对阵韩国还是印尼男队?
    李永波:如果是我想谁就是谁的话,那我希望是越南、柬埔寨进决赛,呵呵。想没有用还是要看最后的结果。
    记者:那您预测一下中国队在决赛上的比分吧。
    李永波:当然希望是3比0(用英语回答国外媒体的问题)。

    But I say CHN will be humiliated in 0-3.... ROFL

    It was waist injury

    It was waist injury instead of back injury.

    李永波总教练对后天的决赛充满了信心,表示决赛中林丹的表现一定不会让大家失望,并且也透露了陈金在比赛中腰部受伤仍打赢了比赛,这种拼搏精神值得表扬。

    Anyway, I agreed with u that KOR will win over CHN 3-1 or 3-2.

    Waist, back.. whatever... bottom line is Chen Jin is injured, and don't worry I will never be your doctor, so my knowledge of medical terms or Chinese translation is not important.

    Is the order going to be: MS1, MD1, MS2, MD2, MS3 again? Or can they make the order something odd?

    It should be an interesting day/night...

    ...come Sunday, as we shall see which team the crowd will lend its support to. The Koreans or.................the Chinese....;)

    *Since most of the predictions now indicate the KOR will take down the mighty CHN, i still don't understand the thinking behind the KOR's squad approach in their group play: simply just to avoid CHN until the Final round. Win or lose, it's inevitable they will have to meet CHN?!?!?!.........Anyway...

    China will win, I have no respect for Korea using their strategy to get to the finals, China's singles players have the edge and FHF/CY seem to be playing better as of late....
