    They will not win, but I think you should keep an eye out for Russia at the Thomas Cup this year. They have 2 strong MD pairs, and their singles players are also very good (Ivanov in particular)

    They should do well, obviously China will win though :)

    There should be a poll for who will be the runner-up in the TC this year

    I don't think at current stage malaysia can even get past denmark...LCW will win first singles...second and third will most probably go to denmark...MD? If KKK/TBH on form...maybe...if BoMo on form...no chance...

    i find it hard to believe that almost 1 in 4 think (hope) the KOR can win.
    on average the korean can probably secure one point from the 2 double matches thus require to win 2 out of the 3 singles.

    where on earth that 2 single points come from?

    hard to say.

    Lee/Jung vs. Fu/Cai is almost 50/50. Fu/Cai can be rather shaky as we saw from the AE final.

    Ko/Yoo vs. Chai/Guo is almost 50/50. head to head is 2-1 for the Chinese. with Ko/Yoo winning the most recent encounter in December.

    CHN do have upper hand on LD vs. LHI.
    SWH is actually not bad on #2. CL can lose to the strangest of players. head-to-head CL leads 2-1.
    and then PSH vs. CJ. well, CJ is CJ. head-to-head is 3-3

    as a whole, surely not a 50/50, but certainly not a complete loss either. KOR can be a dangerous dark horse in team matches. as we have seen in 2003 SC and 2010 UC.

    ^Kwun I don't think Park is playing, he's still injured. I believe that they are fielding Hong Ji Hoon as MS3...

    This match depends on SWH vs CL, LYD/JJS vs Cai/Fu and Ko/Yo vs Chai/Guo

    Edit: Korea could field Kim/Kim va Chai/Guo also.

    I think DEN has a better chance of upsetting CHN. KOR MS won't stand a chance against CHN.

    MAS should bring in ZZ to satisfy the "opposition" and to inject a surprise to confound the opponents. He may be the savior, provided KKK/TBH performed their best act.

    KOR seems good enough as runner-up.

    impossible, ZZ recently not in good form and his attack seems not so good enough, this proved during axiata cup...

    Since MAS is unlikely to win the TC according to the poll, might as well give ZZ the exposure since so many pro-independent KLRC supporters have been clamoring for his inclusion. Then "taxpayers' money" will be better spent to prepare MAS' future star.
