    Hmm... Chen Jin pulled out of Swiss Open and Indian Open sighting injuries...
    Bao Chunlai and Xie Xinfang pulled out of Indian Open sighting injuries...

    If both Bao and Chen are still significantly injured in May... then CHN have to rely on Chen Yu and Lu Yi... Provided that INA's MS trio are all healthy and fit... I can start seeing INA winning 2 of the MS matches against CHN...

    Injuries and ranking changes are affecting some teams. Opens a lot of avenues for upsets.

    CJ was beaten in early round of Indian Open by MAS junior, no injury withdrawal there. As it is he already took a big hit on his Olympic chances.

    Yup, technically he didn't pull out... I should have said: Chen Jin was disrupted by injuries at the Swiss Open and at the Indian Open... :p

    If Cai-Fu and Xie-Guo were also injured, then I want to know who China can send to play against Rian-Yoke, Joko-Hendra, and we still have Candra Wijaya, Flandy Limpele who can be partnered with the others. For example, Candra Wijaya-Hendra Setiawan combo is really awesome! [I saw them play in the INA Superliga]

    INA's MD pool is deeper than CHN's MD pool... ;) INA will destroy CHN for sure!

    Candra - Hendra will make much more sense, considering their normal position. Any idea why Candra was paired with Markis back in Sudirman Cup 2007?

    That's because Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan have a dismal record against Anthony Clark/Robert Blair, losing twice in 2006 (All-England and WC). So, the INA coaches were not too confident of MD winning a pt in the Sudirman Cup if Kido/Hendra were fielded. Given Candra Wijaya's vast experience, it will increase their chance of winning that all-important pt. And indeed, what a pt it turned out to be!

    You are probably right with that statement if we are sending an inexperienced team but guys like LCW, WCH, CTF-LWW, KKK-TBH were 2 years less experienced in the last Cup appearance when they lost. If you were betting on Malaysia being its worst enemy, then I think chances are not stacked too high for you.

    This time round, I hate to say, LCW will win 1st singles against INA and possibly one other singles and one doubles, or one singles and two doubles. I am there for the 1st time because I expect a win.:D
