    TC : Japan already won 4-0.
    But Masuda/Othsuka & Sasaki were stretched to rubber set by India's MD & MS. Interesting, since I never heard of that India MD.

    When predicted TW doubles will steal a point or 2, instead they were well beaten by KOO/TAN & CHOONG/LEE respectively.:eek:
    The results shows that MAS MS are very fragile. Would be interesting affair to know who can win for MS2 & MS3 if MAS vs KOREA in the final.:cool:

    A very good sign is the 3rd set (for both WC and Hafiz) was won with ease. It means our boys are fit. Augurs well for the finals with Korea, if it happens.

    we should actually root for our boys to win in all the 5 ties but knowingly our team, erm its just to labile. they cannot be predicted with exception of lee chong wei. only he is dependable. however, the girls' team is doing not too bad, though WMC was stretched by saina nehwal. which is good coz least, it serves as a wake up call for WMC. she shld prevail against XAY, but as for the CEH/WPT, i have a bad feeling they will disappoint us yet again. the other ties shld go in our favor:) GO TIGERS!!!

    Malaysia mens seems to be to strong for the rest. Definitely a contender for the CUP. Second stringers seems to be more exciting.

    it is not going to be easy for Malaysia but Malaysia still have the edge if they can take the 1st and 2nd single. the singaporean young gals is going to make malaysia sweat for every single point

    You mean the gals beat India 4-1. Anita Kaur lost in 3rd WS.
    The guys beat Taiwan 5-0.

    TC : Korea vs Vietnam is with Korea leading 2-1. Surprise lost by PSH. Lee Hyun Il wasnt fielded. Maybe they thought could beat Vietnam 5-0.

    Boonsak Ponsana and Sudket Prapakamol/Phattapol Ngensrisuk make it 2-0 for Thailand now.

    Similarly, the Japanese cuties are leading Thailand 2-0.

    Wang Chen and Yip Pui Yin have expectedly won the points for Hong Kong as they cruise to a 2-0 lead. Yippy will have another match later on in the second women's doubles. That one could be the decider :cool:

    Hong Kong has topped the Group in the Uber Cup after beating Chinese-Taipei 3-0. Mong Kwan Yi is the hero as she defeated Chiu Yi-Ju in rubber sets 21-15, 17-21, 21-8.

    Japan also tops their Group as they beat Thailand 3-0 in the Uber Cup.

    So, the matchups in the Quarter-Final are:
    Japan vs Chinese-Taipei -- Japan's 3 singles players will guarantee their progress!
    India vs Korea -- a no-brainer....Korea to progress for sure!
    Thailand vs Hong Kong -- again, Wang Chen and Yip Pui Yin shoulder the responsibility of winning the first 2 points. The rest are up for grabs really, with the Thailand doubles having the edge over the Hong Kong pairs.
    Malaysia vs Singapore -- MATCH OF THE ROUND

    MAS vs SIN will be an interesting matchup.
    WS1 and WD1 will decide the outcome.
