My favorite is England.
If England meets Denmark in final, England will beat Denmark by 3:2.
denmark should sweep the mens events, and could sneak in a win in either WS, or less likely XD.
I think it could be 3:2 to Denmark of to England, England'll lose all men's and win all ladies and it could be close in the Mxd.
My bet is on Denmark. They have almost overwhelming advantage over England in MD, MS and WS
Top four are England, Denmark, Holland and Germany.
Most probably England vs Denmark in final.
XD and WS to England
MS and MD to Denmark
WD will be the key?
Tine Rasmussen is back so the WS might very well go the other way Agree that the WD is key. I'm going with denmark. Men's events are in the pocket and all the others are close calls.
That's true for MS and MD but not WS. England's Tracey Hallam is regularly top 10 in the world and I think that she has the advantage over Denmark's WS players.
I think that the result could be 3:2 to England as their WS WD and XD are stronger than the Danes
My money's on the Danes as well. I think they'll definitely be able to pick up one of WS, WD or XD. When you definitely have to win all 3 to win the match, it's never a good situation. Also, I'm not too impressed with the GE/DK WD combination, if that's who they'll be playing. They were troubled too much by the Malaysians and Indians in the CG.
Anyone know if they'll be showing the competition in the UK?
I can't see the Danes winning WS with Hallam around. Also, Robertson/Emms are pretty solid although we cannot dismiss Eriksen/Schjoldager. I also can't see GE/DK losing to a Danish pair. I still put my money on England.
looks like it's gonna be interesting then. nothing better than a close tie. let the games begin!
I agree that England should be favourites if they meet denamrk. Key area XD IMHO. MS+MD to Denmark, but WS/WD to Eng (Denmark seem poor at present in these discipline, although they could bring a win.) Jens/Mette could beat Eng pair if hit form and luck at the right times.
More of a worry to Eng for me would be reaching the final if they have to play Holland. WS and WD could go to Holland as Mia should play and her WD partner is back (Lotte bruil?) and Dicky palyama i would bet to beat any eng MS 9 times out of ten.
Denmark however could beat Holland due to the strength of men and XD.
I would still be surprised if ENG didn't win however.
I don't think she's playing (she pregnant)
This changes things a lot as Netherlands won't have a so strong WD in the end.
Final should quite clearly be England vs Denmark in that case!
I echo Seven, Pregnant again?! she only just came back.
And also I agree that Should definitely be eng Vs Denmark, although Germany should not be discounted, especially as They have WS, MS, WD to challenge england on good day if get lucky.
hey, there's more to life than badminton you know!
besides, where are the next generation of quality, DNA-infused badminton players gonna come from if the national team's men and women don't reproduce?
England had the best chances to win.
Nathan/Gail will win against all nation XD.
Tracey had an adavantage about 55:45 against Denmark WS.
Yes, she will lost if she play Mia or Xu but Germany and Netherland MD are weak.
WD: Probably only Netherland WD had a chance to beat England WD.
You guys are talking out of your hats.
If Tine is back from her injury, Donna doesn't stand a chance.
And regarding MX, Nathan/Gail against Jens/Mette is a tough call looking at previous matches. I would change "Nathan/Gail will win..." to "Nathan/Gail MIGHT win"...
Also, dont forget there are still a few experienced women's doubles players on the roster for Denmark. Pernille Harder and Mette Schjoldager could get back together, and Kamilla Juhl has showed her class in the past Sudirman Cup. I say, Denmark to win. Though it could really go either way. Maybe another country will pull a hat trick and neither Denmark or England will win. Can't really see that though
Hey Mag, don't you mean "...if Tine is back from her injury, *Tracey* doesn't stand a chance".
Well that might be possible but at the moment I think Tracey is the best non-asian (origin) in the world. But I agree with you about MX, never been impressed by the english pair.
