IMO Malaysia may not do too well in this Thomas Cup campaign.
Why? Malaysia has only one "very strong" single player in Dato LCW. Liew Daren & Hafiz - one is still new and raw and the other is too unpredictable. My take is Malaysia will win one single and lost the other two singles if encounter teams like SKorea, Indonesia or Denmark. Of course, if versus South Africa, it will be a breeze for Malaysia.

As for the doubles - one is in the decline and the other has not shown maturity as yet. So, my take is that it will be a fifty-fifty affair in the first doubles, while the other one is not a sure win.

Ya, saw the match where Dato LCW was leading 2-0 when he fell akwardly and was out for a month or two.
I was wrong in my assessment about the 2 singles when Malaysia got 2 points against Denmark. Anything can happen, right?

look like Malaysia cant get the Thomas again. Hopefully Dato can recover soon and fight for our 1st gold medal in London.
Dato, add oil..

Without lcw... Playing china is like using the dragonfly arm to block a car

So loosing is expected
Our double is no longer as good is also expected

Only consolation is Darren Liew performance in single giv us little hope

Our double over confident. They always think they very good. Not like last time in Doha 2006. Maybe that time no pressure..
