    so who do you think will come 2nd in the Sudirman Cup final?

    NOTE: as China is pretty much poised to win the Sudirman Cup again this year. it will be uninteresting to poll for who will win. instead, the 2nd place is more interesting.

    however, i will left the choice for China to be number 2. if you choose China, let us know who you think will win the Sudirman Cup.

    I will go for Korea as runner-up.

    I think Korea will top Group 1B by beating Indonesia in WS, WD and XD.
    They will then beat Malaysia in the Semi by taking again the WS, WD and XD.
    But it would be a white wash when they play China in the final.

    China is way too balance in all disciplines to lose in this competition format.

    if they perform as usual..
    then malaysia will be in final..
    tat mean..
    LCW must be atleast as gud as the 07 IO..
    KOO/TAN muz keep a clean sweep on MD point..
    WMC is juz like the normal 1 , can beat a better player anytime..
    the WD & XD i think there will be no differences..
    if they wan to win the cup..
    then these should be the key..
    KOO/TAN really take a clean sweep..
    LCW is in his top form..
    WMC still need to be as usual or better..
    here is the important key..
    our XD, maybe rexy got some surprise for us with his choices..
    if TAN/WOON really tat potential as rexy said..
    then the Sudirman Cup may come back with them..
    anyway they muz get pass the group challange 1st..
    if they can get a easy semis entry with 3-0 or 3-1 win in the group match..
    ofcourse not china lar..
    they muz be putting WCH when group match vs CHN..
    hahaha..
    i think MAS really got a better chances to be in final..
    MALAYSIA BOLEH!

    I vote for Malaysia.

    Not because Malaysia is better, but because they have the perfect draw.

    Assume China beats every country, and Malaysia, Korea, Denmark, and Indonesia are at the same level, which means it's simply 50%-50% between any two of Malaysia, Korea, Denmark, and Indonesia, then Malaysia only needs one win to claim the runner up position. So the chances for each are:

    Malaysia: 50%
    Indonesia: 16%
    Korea: 16%
    Denmark: 16%

    Being grouped with China, Malaysia successfully avoid China in the elimination round which equivalent to the winner position of the other group, which Indonesia, Korea and Denmark have 1/3 chance to get it. That's the simple reason Malaysia's chance equals 3 times of the other teams.

    I thought MAS lost to DEN in TC06 SF...partly because WCH was injured...but beat KOR in QF.
    I surmise MAS will be 2nd but then again anything can happen and MAS can lose too but also can beat CHN if MAS take MS and MD, and if Miss Wong can stand on her head and create an upset. Still CHN #1 and MAS #2 hoping for a small miracle to beat CHN...that is my take.

    hahaha, i voted with my heart and not my head again. oh well, how surprising! it'll be quite a feat to get to the final, LCW and WMC have to do well ....

    and yeah, MAS lost to DEN in the TC, not KOR. and yeah, i blame KBH for the loss!

    coming to a court near you...
    Per my earlier predictions:
    SF:CHN over INA and MAS over KOR
    FINAL: CHN over MAS

    Runner-up = MAS

    I added one vote for Korea simply because they always thrive at 7-stars tournaments, especially when its team-oriented.
