    Oppurtunity for young Chinese Players to impress and make their way to the National Team. A tournament full of young talents and exciting matches. And the last chance for some to win a ticket for Glasgow World Badminton Championships. We will see who will come out on top in the next 6 days.

    Will LD make it to Glasgow? If he wins here, will his points/ranking be enough for selection?

    He will definitely try his best. As of now, he is the 4th ranked CHN MS in the Race to Glasgow Standing at No.10 behind, Shi Yuqi at 6, Chen Long at 7 and Tian Houwei at 8.

    I think by doing well or winning at the CHN Masters , he will improve his standing to within the top 8, and therefore qualify as one of the max 4 players allowed within the top 8 for each category. All the ranking points he can earn at the CHN Masters count into his total as he only has 8 tournaments tallied currently.

    Incidentally, at the CHN Masters, only Tian Houwei and Lin Dan are competing among the WC CHN MS candidates, both Shi Yuqi and Chen Long skipped the event,so Tian Houwei can improve his standing at No.8 if he performs well and be assured of grabbing a WC spot.

    Nine-Tailed Fox, you're fast, thanks for opening the tournament thread. I'm sure, CLELY, whom you beat to it, will contribute her write-up here, always appreciated.

    At least, you didn't call yours the official thread as that'll be presumptuous of you. Well done. Keep it up.:)

    Likely will play Qiao Bin in R3. Can't wait to see QB dealing with another IND :)

    Qiao Bin will be upset that in home GPG he has been given an Indian MS player! Hope he doesn't get nightmares about Indian MS players! :)

    Haha perhaps already cursing the gods and heavens :x
    If he loses for the 4th time to IND MS, I suggest him to take 'kari' as his main menu :D

    The Chinese Badminton Association announced that ChangZhou will host China Masters (Level 2) and FuZhou will host China Open (Level 3) from 2018 to 2021.

    If the bureaucrats did not make a mistake, that would mean that China Masters will elevate from a GPG to a Level 2 (SSP) while China Open will downgrade from a SSP to a Level 3 (SS).

    Not sure if these two tournaments will switch time slots also.

    @Justin L, Your favourite player Jimmy Yu Lun Tay suffered an explosive defeat to Qin Zheng of Chile. He was far from his best today and his footwork looked shaky on the match point.

    Note: Link: http://bwfbadminton.com/2017/03/19/bwf-launches-new-event-structure/

    Level 2 tournaments are a level above SSP (Premier of Premier, Name branding to be decided by BWF)
    Level 3 tournaments are SSP
    Level 4 tournaments are SS
    Level 5 tournaments are GPG

    I wonder how far can Sun Feixiang go in this tourney.
    He is definitely the best of CHN juniors right now.

    That's strange. Perhaps, Changzhou has bigger sponsor than Fuzhou for the bids.

    Just realized the Changzhou stadium's outer structure is shaped like a lotus flower on water, beautiful, and it's called an Olympic Sport Centre.

    Fox always takes fast initiative when his idol Lin Dan is taking part ;) Any BCers can open tournament thread :)

    China Masters as usual lack of partcipant, most likely because it's unfavourable schedule after three consecutive Superseries, the A-listers should skip this event.

    Almost all local notable MS players show up here, Chen Long and Shi Yuqi are absent. Defending champion Lin Dan and 2016 Dubai Finals runner-up Tian Houwei come to Changzhou with one specific target, Glasgow WC ticket. Who will be axed at the end? It's interesting to wait, title-holder Chen Long has risky position but hardly to see China team will drop him. The first round of this category has been completed, tight contest involved INA back-ups M. Bayu Pangisthu and Zhou Zeqi, the latter prevaied narrowly, 21-19 at deciding game. Also another INA youngster Firman A. Kholik edged out homester Ren Pengbo, 13-21 / 21-13 / 21-18.

    Chen Yufei leads home WS squad in the absence of Sun Yu and He Bingjiao, their major stumbling block will coming from Japanese players, Aya Ohori, Ayumi Mine, Sayaka Takahashi, Saena Kawakami. Last year winner, Li Xuerui was registered initially but too bad had withdrawn, suspected her injury isn't fully recovered yet.
