Chart Analysis

Point Ratios look slightly favorable slightly for HYD.

  1. Strategy 1 : AW9 / HH5  (AWD 3 – HYD 4) (Possible Strategy)


Men’s SinglesStacking will possibly decide the margin by which Hyderabad might win. If Lee Chong Wei plays Tanonsak, and we assume he wins (although he is yet to any point for Hyd) then Hyd can win 5-2. The alternative will be as shown above.

Men’s Doubles : Should be a lesson in attitude and good game play for the young Nandagopal and 15 year old Satwik Raj. Looking out for some crazy smashes from the young fellow.

Women’s Singles : Saina all the way. If she doesnt play, Awadh will at best pick up 2 points.

Mixed Doubles : Kido and Gutta hold the edge, but should be tight.
