    Thanks for the info. The number of MS rank is slightly wrong, but the sequence of the names is correct.

    The WS #5, Pi Hongyan, should be listed as France instead of Chn.

    Yes, but I guess that since the list is obviously typed up by a Chinese person, he/she must have considered her as Chinese.. well she is, but her nationality is.. French.

    or he/she is just a typist and knows nothing about badminton then assumed that a female player with the surname Pi must be a Chinese national.

    well, to be fair, pi and xu were former CHN nationals, and now that HK is part of CHN as well, that makes it 8 out of 10!

    Yeah. Also consider many young players still don't have enough chances to perform (i.e Wang Lin, Wang Yihan and many others), they should be able to take 18 out of 20, if allowed. :p

    all they need to do is leave the mainland, offer their services to other countries in desperate need of good WS players, and then dominate the world of badminton.

    similar to what's been going on before, except on a larger scale.
