pre-match prediction

MF Predictions for the match

Men’s Singles :Prannoy HS plays first Men’s Singles against the Thai Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk.  This will be a tight match with Prannoy holding a slight advantage.

Men’s Doubles :Vladimir Ivanov,Mathias Boe against Cai Yun,Hendra Gunawan. The numbers are heavily in favor of Mumbai,  but the fleet footed Chinese Cai Yun can always throw a surprise.This will be a our suggested TRUMP game for Mumbai.

Women’s Singles : The most anticipated match – only because everyone loves watching Saina on court. Should be a boring, one sided match. Obvious TRUMP for Awadhe.  All other matches are way too close.

Mixed Doubles :Mathias Boe, Kamilla Juhl against Bodin Issara, Christinna Pedersen. Tight match, but difficult to predict.

Repeat Men’s Singles :Gurusaidutt against SaiPraneet. In their previous international head to head, SaiPraneet got better of Gurusaidutt in a 3-setter.

Strategy Scenario 2 :MR1/ AW1(Mumbai 3– Awadhe 4)

(only differences from above strategy shown)

Men’s Singles :Prannoy HS plays first Men’s Singles against SaiPraneet.  This will be a tight  match.

Repeat Men’s Singles :Gurusaidutt against Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk. Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk holds the edge.
