Thomas Cup 2018

The Thomas Cup is a part of the BWF Thomas & Uber Cup held every two years. The Thomas Cup is the World Men’s Team Championship while the Uber Cup is World Women’s Team Championship. This year will mark the 30th edition of the Thomas Cup, while the Uber Cup will be in its 27th edition.

Background

The first ever Thomas Cup was held in 1949, which was hosted by England and won by Malaysia. Back then, the competition was held every three years until 1982, when it was amended into a biennial tournament.

Of the 29 editions held so far, only five nations have been able to lay their hands on the Thomas Cup. Indonesia is the most successful nation in the tournament’s history with 13 titles. It is followed by China with nine titles. Malaysia has five titles while both Japan and Denmark have one each. The last Thomas Cup, in 2016, was the first time a nation outside Asia lifted the trophy as Denmark beat Indonesia 3-2.

Format

In its current format, there are 16 teams in the tournament divided into four groups of four teams each. The top two teams from each group advance to the knockout stages.

Preview

This year’s Thomas Cup is scheduled to be held from May 20 to May 27 and will be hosted by Thailand at Impact Arena. It is the first time that Thailand will host the tournament as the championship returns to Southeast Asia for the first time since 2010.

Group A consists of nine time winners China, who will compete against the likes of India, France and Australia as they look to reclaim the trophy they last won in 2012. China and India seem like the favourites to advance to the knockouts from this group.

The hosts Thailand are seeded in a delicate Group B alongside tournament favourites Indonesia and Korea and Canada.

Group C is termed as the ‘Group of Death’ as 2014 champions Japan look to advance against potentially difficult opponents in the form of Hong Kong, Chinese Taipei and Germany. It must be said that all the teams have an almost equal chance of progressing through the knockouts in this tightly contested group.

Meanwhile, defending champions Denmark will have to face five time winners Malaysia alongside Russia and Algeria in Group D.

Although Denmark won the trophy in the previous editions, many pundits are betting on China as the firm favourite for this year’s competition, followed by Indonesia and then the defending champions. Japan are the dark horses of the cup as they look to make their way through the Group of Death. South Korea meanwhile have an ‘outside chance’ of winning the cup.

While Denmark’s charge at the cup will be led by current world no. 1 Viktor Axelsen, China will be spearheaded by Chen Long, Shi Yuqi and Lin Dan. Indonesia’s Anthony Ginting, Jonatan Christie and Ihsan Maulana Mustofa will look to continue their fine form well into the tournament. India would have been another formidable team in the cup had they not missed the likes of Kidambi Srikanth and the duo of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty .
