    MAS MD stands a better chance against DEN pair than CHN pair.

    As much as I would love that result, I'd be cautious until the final score is out.
    We didn't see/expect Minions losing to the malaysians either and they got disposed of in 2 quick sets.

    i doubt the current administration of PBSI dare to change MD head coach due to the simple fact as wade pointed out INA has many top MD pairs and world no 1 too and many tour tittles too

    if only they notice the lack of most important titles.....if only

    gah the current admjnistration quite a wimp anyway doubt anythung gonna change

    Tactically ahsan/hendra are much much superior compared to minions, they're much more discipline with their choice of shot

    At 19-9 in the 3rd, in favour to the Indonesians, I'd be confident that they'll get through.

    Say what you want. China has the best fighting spirit across the floor.

    Ohhhhh some cheers for Indonesia. How I miss this.

    Well match won by uncles. I'm ok with it. I like this pair. But for Japan to lose like this. Come on.

    AhsanHendra will have a double shot at winning a medal ( dont think they ll get past EndoW)

    on Other hand, cant believe Japan might lose 2 MD as well. and lose all its male players.

    Many upsets. Yesterday we lost MS 1st seed. Today MD 1st seed. Tomorrow, maybe WS 1st seed.

    I'm going for the Indonesians too, but in all honesty - Endo / Watanabe will be the challenge - moreso than any other pair in the top half.

    Chinese have one of the best mental strength. They always bring out the best when it matters not just in Badminton but also other sports. Crazy how much medals they won in OG after started participation again in 1984 .

    Well Watanabe for sure is knackered from covering Arisa. So i'm not expecting him to come in positive or with the necessary energy.
    Especially considering the weak mental of Japan team across the Board. If i'm going purely what it is being echoed on this forum, e.g. Momota's bad performance was purely because of mental

    It won't be easy for INA MD pair in the semis. Both JPN and TPE pairs formidable.

    Yeah, i dont think the coach will change.

    In my books, winning 2 out 4 majors is not bad. They lose 2017 18 WC, get gold in 19 WC and 18 AsianGames

    and now a medal shot, i think thats not bad.

    I think I wasn't clear. I meant the speculation that LeeWang were not going to win EndoW. Of course, the KamSon match was decided at 1-11. No question about that.
