Yeah that's not true. CHN is still the undesired opponent. Last meeting of FukuHiro with Kititharakul/Prajongjai was 21-19 21-13 so that's not really close. To be sure JPN can put TakaMatsu up first and Tanaka/Yonemoto as WD2 so I don't really see THA beating JPN. Only AY looks shaky but NO is in finer form so far.
