    USA v Scotland. Tough game for USA as Scotland has the home support

    wait. correction again.

    CAN <-> UKR has a two way tie. since CAN beat UKR in the group match, CAN will ranked higher.

    so:

    FRA
    USA
    CAN
    UKR

    USA vs Scottland...hopefully it will be a close one.
    Like to see all 5 matches played, not a quick 3-0.

    Some Malaysian fans' excuses/grouches/reasonings for Malaysia failing to enter semifinals:
    1. Not taking tournament seriously, which leads to
    2. Not ambitious - sent small team
    3. Not fielding best side - Anita instead of WMC; and inexperienced XD

    I beg to differ:
    1. Our XD are below standard in Div1 (only HKG is worse, IMO). Fielding our top XD pair (who BTW?) is almost as bad as fielding Tan/Woon. However,
    2. Tan/Woon, for me, has proven to be a revelation. I believe the Sudirman Cup experience enriched them more than it would have enriched any other XD pair.
    3. Small team? I think Choong/Lee should be included, but who else besides Choong/Lee can add to the strength of the team? When Anita was fielded against China, many complained about easily giving up. But if you don't want to field Anita, why send her there at all? Why send WCH?

    We failed to advance due to the combination of 2 results.
    1. KKK/TBH lost to Clark/Blair. KKK/TBH are supposedly our best pair, or at least a close second to Choong/Lee at the moment. We fielded KKK/TBH because we think (most of us anyway) they give us the best chance to win.
    2. CEH/WPT lost to Emms/Kellogg. CEH/WPY is our undisputed best bet to win the WD point.
    Now, would you say that fielding KKK/TBH and CEH/WPT in a Sudirman Cup tie constitutes a lack of ambition (not taking tournament seriously)?

    In the last edition, we only just managed to gain promotion. In the current edition, yeah, I am disappointed because we could do better, but I am also delighted that we are discussing about a semifinal place and not a relegation fight. Hopefully, in the next edition, we can finally land a semifinal slot.

    hcyong..Well said,i am fully agree with what you says.When Mas lost to England,i knew the chance for them to get in to semis is almost zere.So,this is the first time Mas managed to stay in division one and this is definetely a good lesson for the entire Malaysia team and the players.Hopefully Mas team will be stronger in 2009.KKK/TBH should really forgot all the past victory and start all over again.Actually they are really gifted with badminton talent and i really hope they will have more achievement in their journey.What they need to do now is think seriously what problems occurs in them and solve it together.I hope the coming WC will be more beautiful for both of them.

    That was what everybody was saying about LCW and he showed them he could make a return. KKK-TBH are going thorugh a rough patch trying to reconcile their mistakes and errors -- like all things, it cannot be all good all the time.

    Time and effort will change everything....I expect them to bounce back better than before coz if they work out why they lost, then they would have worked out how they are going to win. Look at LCW to prove my case....he got it worked out and look at how he is flying these days.
