    Ok so we agree that limiting participation is unproductive and punishing fraud imperative.
    The only place where I disagree with you is your assertion that there is wide spread cheating. But I apologize again, if I have done injustice to your interpretation.

    as i have written already that i am not here to justify my post and i am not at all interested in arguing which i have seen many people doing here before. .i stand by whatever i wrote, may be you people couldn't understand the point made by me or maybe i couldn't wrote it in a more understanding language. i never judge players by the country for which they are playing. .i like them because of how they play, be it saina nehwal, pv sindhu, wang shixian or whoever it is. .i support the decision of the chair umpire when she gives warning to sindhu for delaying tactics in the second round match of the world championships and vice versa. Enough said.

    I´m exactly your opinion. When I saw the Court 1 schedule I was like "omg what the hell". You already explained it perfectly imho. Way more interesting matches could have been shown!

    The host need to show WD,XD, MD, MS Denmark players on Court 1. It is understandable.

    Ha ha. If you close your eyes, world wont become dark. Organisers did what they are needed to do to please sponsors especially li ning . There are so many reasons why they are selected something like that.

    Even I dont like to watch any german players at all, but what to do? Organisers did this time. So I had to move on..:)

    I would rather watch exciting Angga/Ryan vs. the Korean MD Kim/Kim on court #2 than Boe/Mathias vs. LXL/QZH on court #1.

    Yup, he's the dangerous dark horse who could surprise top two seeds here, Tommy has extra motivation to follow his father success to crown WC title in 1983 Copenhagen WC.

    Many upsets happened in R/16, the highlight should be WS category that defending champion Intanon and former WC Wang YH were sent packing, eliminated by Mitani and Marin respectively.

    Another big guns losing, second seed Juhl/Pedersen also XD 4th seed The Adcocks. Disastrous result for Japan camp as they only have two representatives at final eight. Their leading pairs Endo/Hayakawa, Matsutomo/Takahashi WC journey ended yesterday.

    There is no way Tommy can beat LCW if they meet.
    I'm certain of it, LCW is way too good for anyone in the competition at this WC.

    We Malaysians always have hopes of a World Championship LCW victory. But decades of disappointments after disappointments (not just from LCW) have made us jaded and detached. Even if it looked like its a sure thing, we believe it only when we see it.

    I agree Devendra has been fair and non-biased.

    Without sounding racist or anything like that, but I realised from experience that only an Indian can have any hope of speaking sense into another Indian. So, thank you Devandra, for your impressive post.

    and who will decide that what is sensible and what is not, if you don't understand what others are trying to say than sorry its your own problem. .talking philosophy is such an easy job to do for people here.
