    I searched on here and on google, but nothing came up.

    I was on bwf website, and I came across this:

    "It is now mandatory for the top 10 players to play in all five OSIM BWF World Superseries Premier events, and four of the seven Superseries events in a year...."etc

    Anyone else see this ? I certainly didint know this was the case, although I think if you were a top 10 player you would play as many events as possible.

    Rule is one thing, implementation is another.

    Quick question: Is there such exemption for illness?

    if you are only injured, you still have to show up. illness... depends on doctor's note.

    Mandatory??? Goodness me... I think it should be an option...Most players who wants to be in 10 top will play as many matches as possible.
