    Imaginable but I would predict a 2nd place.

    Why? Who is likely to be the weak link?

    I expect MAS to lose in WS, but should have a chance in WD and XD.

    Assuming LCW and the MD will have a fair chance in winning!

    Well, I suppose. I don't have much faith when it really matters.

    So I hope it turns out well.

    Too bad CAN & SCO got drawn against ENG & MAS respectively, either of them they would have taken down SGP -- AUS still has a chance to do that though...,

    Chance for Australia to go through. They have the women's doubles. Ladies singles for Singapore is not that strong.

    Our young team sailed through with a 3-0 win.

    However our most experienced XD pair of Terry Hee and Tan Wei Han gave us a scare when they lost G2 but recovered to win the decider, 21-17, 18-21, 21-16.

    Our MS and MD appear dominant, with LKY overwhelming Anthony Joe 21-8, 21-6 in MS. Terry Hee recovered well from his XD encounter to combine with Danny Chrisnanta in MD, edging over Robin Middleton and Ross Smith 21-16, 21-14.

    There is still a chance for Singapore to win a team bronze medal.

    I wouldn't say that. Singapore has as good a chance against the two. :p

    India beat Mauritius 3-0, In Semis!
    Srikanth Kidambi
    was below par in game 2, all upcoming players will like playing Srikanth as he likes to boost their confidence!

    I think the result will be the same. Singapore will most probably lost the Woman Single, that is the only gun power in Canada and Scotland.

    SGP, CAN & SCO all play the same "main" guy in XD & MD -- so it's no sure thing as their performances start "wobbling" all over the place.

    Anyway, I still see ENG (& in an ENG vs MAS upset, MAS) taking the bronze over SGP in mixed team -- my bet is on Chris Adcock (Chan Peng Soon) & Marcus Ellis (Goh/Tan) beating a tired Terry Hee in XD & MD in the bronze medal play-offs...

    Should go to England but Singapore still has a little chance and need to olay the game of their life for that bronze.

    IND, MAS, ENG and SGP march on to last four, blank their respective opponent with 3-0.
    Team India outclassed Mauritius while second seed Malaysia had difficult opening match, Rio silver medalists Chan PS/Goh LY dropped first game then they're back to business to defeat Hall/MacPherson. England WS Chloe Birch stunned her more fancied rival, Canadian Michelle Li in rubber games.

    Srikanth and compatriots are highly favourite to beat SGP tomorrow, more interesting semifinal tie will see MAS v ENG, particularly in doubles category.

    The audio in the courts are pretty sweet as well... Those awesome sounds of high tension string net plays and smashing...

    SGP's veteran doubles player Danny Chrisnanta has still got it -- gave IND Shetty/Rankireddy a lesson on how tactical awareness and shot selection/placement is much more important than speed and power... he probably has the best chance medalling in badminton for SGP.

    Shetty as the front court player really needs to learn read the game so that he knows where to place himself and his shots -- half his errors are from not getting into position ahead of time and relying on his "speed/reaction"...

    A tough ask -- Terry Hee needs to play at 200% while everyone else needs to play at 100%

    Indeed on paper, Singapore with a relatively young team will be the underdogs. But surprises do happen and I hope Singapore can create some upsets. :D
