    Yes. SDK should be slightly better than Vittinghus.

    At last some nation outside the Asian continent does break the ice, winning the Thomas Cup for the very first time.

    Now the number of countries winning the Thomas Cup equalizes the Uber Cup, both have five members.

    Still a very exclusive club, as limited as the number of nations having the true aerospace industries!

    The Kunshun Sports Complex is not windy enough for SDK to gain a significant advantage against Vittinghus, who also happens to be younger.

    Yeah. That's my point. I understand that they would like to give more exposure to youngsters but for crucial match like this, experienced players shall be fielded I believe.

    This strategy is used by Denmark to field all the three main players (as opposed to field Emil Holst).

    Folks, if you like volleyball, don't miss the FIVB Women's Volleyball World Grand Prix 2016 tournament, it kicks off on 09 June 2016 for nearly one month! One of greatest treats for volleyball fans.

    Can also thank LCW, who recommended that CWF re-join the national team--CWF totally give away the deciding semi-final match to Emil Holst, totally wasting the window of opportunity an injured JOJ gave Malaysia.

    In relatively close tournaments like this year's, there was no ONE turning point for any of the teams, but many...

    How can you be sure-- unless you also know that Li Yongbo wont be head coach of team China by the next Thomas cup?

    Chen Long is a pretty much a pushover character-wise and can/will be cajoled to play again as long as Li Yongbo is in charge-- when interviewed, even LCW and LD half-jokingly said, "maybe next time...", and these are players who see the Thomas Cup as a point of personal/national pride; someone like Chen Long who doesn't take things to heart won't really mind either way.

    They might not even think they would have the chance to play that far ... had the winning chance in the final, yet faced a situation like this, lacked of the powerful 3rd single!

    it's possible also, they will make you pay with blood if you make the boss lose face. But I think he will redeem himself in Rio Olympic.

    Do you realize that your posts are probably more annoying? Mostly trying to sound clever, to ridicule and to belittle. This kind of behavior reflects immaturity, Also, when a person makes ridicule his main occupation, it means he is a non- achiever. Because people who have really achieved are really humble and they do not ridicule or canvas for support to ridicule or use name calling as part of an argument .

    Ok, thanks for your advice ;)

    Denmark did it to be 5th country to win Thomas Cup, what a touchy moment when their players cried to celebrate big victory and create new history for Danish badminton. Congratulations for the champion also runner-up Indonesia and bronze medalists, Malaysia and Korea as well!

    Viktor Axelsen paved the way to Danish team triumphant to overcome Tommy Sugiarto. The Indonesian had chance to force rubber games when Sugiarto led 18-15 but the tall Dane enhanced the tempo suddenly to attack and Sugiarto made an error at critical situation.

    Two doubles point were owned by Indonesian pairs as Conrad/Kolding and Astrup/Rasmussen couldn't do too much to thwart Ahsan/Setiawan and Pratama/Suwardi fast and furious style also excellent blocking at front area.

    Jorgensen outmaneuvered the less experienced Ginting and the man who played important role against Malaysia, Hans Kristian Vittinghus once again showed his calm and maturity to keep focus in deciding match, he totally controlled the second game to down the nervous and frustrated Mustofa.

    The final outcome is going to world ranking, Denmark has three singles player where their WR are higher than Indonesia and INA failed to steal one point from their singles.

    And also China for not keeping her side of the bargain. With home ground advantage and a strong team, she should have easily won all her ties 3-0. It's good we have a new winner and a deserving one after so many tries. Thomas Cup has left Asia. Will Uber Cup be next? Spain comes to mind but unlikely.

    Thomas Cup 2016 was probably one of the most exciting Thomas Cup ever!
    Denmark Indonesia Korea Malaysia and China had almost the same chance to be the champion!

    Congratulation Denmark!
    and now, only Korea, badminton powerhouse country that have not won Thomas Cup.

    Final Thomas 2012: China vs Korea
    Final Thomas 2014 : Japan vs Malaysia
    Final Thomas 2016: Denmark vs Indonesia
    All different countries be the finalist in the last 3 Thomas Cup. Nice!

    Too bad. I really liked them. Hmm what's about China team? If they're still good I might change my mind.
