    Wow, in June 2017, the BCA INA Open SSP and the Aussie Open SS back-to-back, offer the most money, USD1 mn and USD 750K respectively. I should expect a full turnout for these two tournaments, if only for the prize money and make the trip worthwhile from Indonesia to Australia, esp for those players in faraway countries.

    The problem is the IOSSP starts one week after the Sudirman Cup, I wonder if the winning team players and others are in the right frame of mind to compete in both or either one of the high prized superseries events.

    No, after Sudirman Cup, all the participant have 2 weeks off to comeback joining INA SSP and then AUS SS.

    Sudirman Cup 2017: Week 20
    INA SSP 2017: Week 24
    AUS SS 2017: Week 25

    The break time is 1 week longer compared to 2016 Season which give only 1 week off

    T&U Cup 2016: Week 19
    INA SSP 2016: Week 22
    AUS SS 2016: Week 23

    I believe the reason the Sudirman Cup says 'Week 20' is that it begins at the end of Week 20. You can see from the BWF calendar, that the final day, May 28th, is the same as the final day of the Week 21 Romanian International. The same trick happened this year but you are correct that the break in 2017 will be a week longer. For top players, who can skip qualifying day in Indonesia, they will have 17 days between finals day at the Sudirman, and first round matches in Indonesia. Mind you, many SS events have been playing XD or other first rounds on Tuesday to relieve the load for the Wednesday schedule.

    Still, you are correct that this year, it was tighter. The Thomas Cup still finished at the end of Week 20, but qualifying day in Indonesia was Monday, and 33 first round matches were held on the Tuesday, just 9 days after finals day at the Thomas Cup.

    Yeah, my point is 1 week longer than 2016 season.

    I believe that Superseries level should not be compromised with Grand Prix level. In onder to have better schedule and breaks in between Superseries/BWF Major Event, I support BWF to let GP/GPG in the same week with SS/SSP/Major Events. This way works better than separate GP/GPG against SS/SSP/Major Event. Let the players choose directly to join GP or to choose higher level.

    Olympics as major events need longer breaks before and after, so does SS/SSP/Other Major Events.

    Two BWF major events, 15th Sudirman Cup and 23rd World Championships are the highest profile tournament next year. It's challenging task for title-holder China to defend the prestigious mixed-team trophy, they will rely on new generation on May 2017.

    All England 2017 : Watch the next generation. Will they shine in Birmingham?
