    Players or fans don't need two super series tournaments in a single month (like January), with only a few days apart.

    why can't they move Malaysia Open to February!

    Move Korea Open to middle of January and Malaysia Open to the middle of February. Please!!!

    Players don't need to rest already?
    Thomas & Uber Cup no need any qualifying tourney already?

    Don't be selfish just because you're bored for a month.

    well, players who play in Korea need rest, too...

    why can't they have two or three weeks between Korea, Malaysia and TUC Preliminaries?? For example, the following would be good:


    SSF: mid to late December
    Korea: Mid January
    Malaysia: Early February
    TUC: mid to late February
    England: mid March

    SS tourneys are usually held two weeks in a row, ease the traveling time. Players from Europe more tiring if fly Korea, then fly back. After that fly to Msia again, fly back. If like that why not ask Denmark & France SS play Sept or Oct one & Nov another one(before other events like CWG, Asian Games, SEA Games, East Asian Games)? Then see the coaches & players complain

    There's also the German GP Gold end Feb/early March. Players need rest between TUC & German, which some of the top playes participate every year like Korea doubles, this year more

    The calendar is already packed with tourneys from end of last year (Oct-Jan) with virtually no rest period. So, Feb is generally a time for these players to take a break (with only the TUC qualifying campaign to play for).
