I still think that at this moment, Fu/Cai are the strongest pair in the world. Based on their performance in the All-England, I cannot think of a single pair that will be favourites coming up against them. Sure, they can be beaten but before the match itself, they will be the favourites in every one's mind. I stress that this is the case at the moment, not next year, not last year. (Of course, if there is a sudden drop of performance level, then I have to eat my words.) If Lin Dan matches up with Ronald again, who will be the favourite? I am not saying anyone is invincible but we have to look at the current form. Lin and Chen came up tops in the recent major tournaments. Matching up against any non-Chinese (Taufik, Gade, Ken, Lee CW or Hafiz), the Chinese will be at least equal to the task. Of course, given the right equation and right environment, right etc. etc., they can both be beaten. In reverse, given the right condition, both Lin and Chen can win also. In fact, it is harder to imagine both of them losing than both of them winning. But to be fair, we have to imagine it in a fair environment for both sides. I think the most probable outcome is a 1-1, followed by 2-0 for China, and lastly 0-2. Remember that whoever is chosen from the ROW has to face his Chinese opponent individually. It's not as if we can assemble all the best aspects from different players into one super player (although it will be interesting if we can do that). Mia is losing the fight to even have the right to challenge the Chinese.
