    Bad figures overall.. Especially the prizemoney for MS is an embarrasment for our sport.. I think the MS tournaments should break away into a separate MS Super Series to relevate the prizemoney.

    I think they didn't include the pricemoney from the four-kings invitational tournament where LCW and LD played.. That was..157,000 USD for LD (1,000,000 RMB for winner) and 78,000 (500k RMB for runner up) extra for LCW...

    Huuh.. Yes, the World Ranking is the BWF-ranking and is based on BWF-sanctioned tournaments. So I think BWF recogizes its own ranking, anything else would be just a tad weird :D
