The list of entries for the 2024 Total Energy Thomas Cup and Uber Cup finals was recently announced. The Chinese badminton team will send its strongest lineup to compete, led by Shi Yuqi and Chen Yufei.

This year’s Thomas and Uber Cup will be held in Chengdu from April 27 to May 5. Guoyu has just achieved 3 gold medals and 3 silver medals at the Asian Championships. The team has arrived in Chengdu to make final preparations for the Thomas and Uber Cup.

In the Thomas Cup, Shi Yuqi, ranked second in the world, leads the Chinese team’s singles lineup. Also playing are Hangzhou Asian Games champion Li Shifeng, who has recently recovered, as well as Lu Guangzu and Weng Hongyang. The three pairs competing in the men’s doubles are Liang Weikeng/Wang Chang, Liu Yuchen/Ou Xuanyi and He Jiting/Ren Xiangyu.

In the You Cup, Chen Yufei, He Bingjiao, Han Yue, and Wang Zhiyi, who won the semi-finals at the Asian Championships, competed in the women’s singles, while Chen Qingchen/Jia Yifan, Liu Shengshu/Tan Ning, and Zhang Shuxian/Zheng Yu participated in the women’s doubles competition.

Most of the other teams are sending their main players. The defending Thomas Cup champion India’s lineup is almost the same as two years ago. The Indonesian team includes the in-form Jonatan, who has recently won gold medals at the All England and Asian Championships, as well as strong men’s doubles pairs such as Alfian/Ardianto. Kento Momota, whose world ranking has dropped to outside 50, will appear in the Japanese team’s lineup this time. He will play in the men’s singles together with Kodai Naraoka, Kenta Nishimoto and Kouki Watanabe.

The U Cup stadium is also star-studded. The defending champion South Korean team is led by Ahn Se-young, the world’s number one in women’s singles. Kim Ga-eun, the second-highest ranked women’s singles player in the team, did not register. The Japanese team roster includes many famous players such as Yamaguchi Akane, Ohori Aya, Okuhara Nozomi, Matsuyama Naomi/Shida Chihiro, as well as the “genius girl” Miyazaki Yuka.

The Thomas and Uber Cup is one of the most important team events in the badminton world and is held every two years. The Chinese team is one of the most successful teams in the history of the Thomas Cup and Uber Cup. It has won 10 Thomas Cup championships and 15 Uber Cup championships. However, the results in the last edition were unsatisfactory. The men’s team missed the semi-finals and the women’s team Finished second.
