    I think its a gamble. If they win MD they will have good chance. If they lost, XD probably wont be played anyway but its better than KamuraSonoda

    Actually, Endo and Watanabe did score a victory against Li/Liu recently, at the BAC. So they are a better choice than Kam/Son, who has lost to Li/Liu time and again.

    Wait, didn't they beat Li/Liu before? The H2H actually favors them and they won the last meeting.

    Lineup:

    Li / Liu vs. Endo / Watanabe - h2h: 1-3
    Chen YF vs. Akane - h2h: 5-9
    Shi Yuqi vs. Momota - h2h: 1-4
    Chen QC / Jia YF vs. Mayu / Wakana - h2h: 4-2
    Zheng SW / Huang YQ vs. Yuta / Arisa - h2h: 5-1

    H2H definitely favors Japan here.

    taking the past 12 months' encounters only... h2h is:

    1-2
    4-3
    1-3
    3-2
    4-0

    much closer!

    Definitely, best possible one for JPN I think. The ones where CHN have an advantage are played last

    Huge pressure for Li/Liu. If they lost and China lost, they will be scapegoated. They are expected to get point in the 1st 3 matches.

    Yeah Chen/Jia is a pair you really do not wanna play against unless you have a very good smasher.

    I think Polii/Rahayu would stand a better chance against them. Although I do not know the previous encounters.

    @Head Heavy Hell even TakaMatsu lost to them right? In a very bad way too :( But what about FukuHiro?


    EDIT: OH NO NO NO NO NO! I've mixed up Chen/Jia with Du/Li. It's okay then ... MatsuNaga can do it. Du/Li is worse.

    I hope Yamaguchi can do it. But I bet CYF will exploit that forehand corner. If CYF sees the light it is soooo over!

    They say JPN has the loudest cheers but I barely hear them. I wish they'd be louder ... they need someone like me who'd deliver cheers Haikyuu style (for those who know).

    China: We have an Army
    Japan: We have a Kent ... sorry Hulk as from yesterday.

    Conclusion after the scientific analysis above, all depends on Watanabe

    THE DREAM FINAL
    As scripted and predicted by most of badminton enthusiats, these top two seeds will facing off in grand final. China will try to recapture Sudirman Cup while Japan aims to create new history. Both teams have depth in all five categories but based to head to head stats Japan is slightly favourite to overcome China at home soil. A rematch of 2015 final in Dongguan where China blanked Japan, 3-0 but it will be different story this time as Japan has more formidable squad to rely on. Looking at order of play, Yuta Watanabe will play twice considering Endo/Watanabe have positive 3-1 head to head stats against towering duo Li/Liu, Japan is favoured in first three matches while China has advantage in women's doubles and mixed doubles.

    Japan lost opening match against Indonesia in semifinal last night, Kamura/Sonoda looked slower than usual and couldn't balance the Minions speed and fast interception. But the next three encounters shift to Japan side, Gregoria Mariska is no match to Akane Yamaguchi. Anthony Ginting had chance to steal point but commited errors in critical moment in first and second game to stong-determined Kento Momota. Leading 2-1, the defeat was looming when Matsumoto/Nagahara meet Polii/Rahayu, the Indonesians pushed their effort to level the scoreline but must admit their opponent forte at the end.

    Can't see Endo/Wata winning unless Liu/Lu completely fails.
    Their game against the Russians :confused:
    Unless they are playing mind games on Liu/Lu?:cool:

    MD / WS is effectively even chances, while MS is heavily favored towards Momota.

    Japan will have to defend all 3. if they lose any of them, then the table flips and China will have to defend WD/XD where they have a theoretical advantage.

    the pressure will be high either way.

    I would like to believe the Russian uncles are Endo's kryptonite. Hahaha. Lost AE to them, and lost a couple more with Watanabe to them.

    Endo/watanabe definitely has better chance against li/liu compared to kamura/sonoda, but honestly I don't think they'll beat the twin towers today unless li junhui get super nervous.

    Well, dont let it be AntiClimaxtixx. My prediction is CHN 0-3 JPN / CHN 3-1 JPN is unlikely it goes to 5th match.

    1st match will be key
