    well, as mentioned before in the forum, some of the older generation pros have been very sporting before when it came to line calls. han jian is a prime example.

    Looking at Thomas cup draw, it might be better for Korea or Malaysia team to become third in the group, so that they will have easier route to final compare to becoming 1st or 2nd in the group!
    To win the group, they will face China in the semi; alternatively, the winner of B group will face Indo in Quarter final.
    Who's know, may be Korea/Malaysia deliberately loss all their matches to make this happens....

    coming to a court near you...
    I have a suggestion that might take away the need to position the team not to meet China. Firstly, eliminate the 3rd place team in the group. If you win the group, you're seeded #1 for the QF. Likewise, the 2nd place finisher gets the #2 seed. There is no predetermined passage for any team prior to the competition (ie, if MAS or KOR finishes 2nd, they avoid China through knowledge of the draw).

    All the #1 seeded teams go in one hat, all the #2 seeded teams go in another. Then they are drawn so that all #1 seeds play #2 seeds. All winners then drawn again for the SF. By that time all teams should be about equal (bar China), so it'd turn out quite fair. This way, no one knows who they will be facing ahead of time plus it makes them want to win the group to be a #1 seed (hence not facing CHN in the QF).

    Madbad, agree your view. Flaw of the system really. It is absolutely pointless to let all three teams in the group qualify into next round & creat chances for the team to choice who they want to play in the subsequent rounds. My suggestion would be winner of each group will be seeded together with defending champion, then these 4 seeded countries will only play against 2nd runner up of other group in the quarter final.

    As much as I'm hoping M'sia will end China streak, but I just got to say that their too strong. Their singles are so so strong. Nevertheless, lets hope that the doubles will pull victories for M'sia.

    I put all my bets on CHN to grab both T&U titles.

    As for runner ups, Thomas should go to INA and Uber should go to...I dont really care.

    Against all odds, I think Korea & Msia will meet in final.

    Reason: nobody can predict a quake will happen in Sichuan, China.
