Continue to examine the impacts of the Malaysian Open to the Olympics qualifications. It’s needless to say that Chen Jin blown a golden chance big time to grab some points last week at Korea, the only good news is likewise for P. Gade thus the gap between the two remains unchanged.

My gut feeling is we wouldn’t be seeing another LCW vs LD match until the London OLY, if at all. Both players should and will cut down their commitments and focus on the big one in August. For the top half of the draw LCW should meet CL at the SF, I say 65/35 to LCW with the home advantage. On paper CJ should finish ahead of PG, Gade again has a group of youngsters in his quarter thus a SF place is not so certain. The only threat in CJ’s quarter is Jorgensen, first I don’t believe CJ will lose to him twice in a row and Jorgensen has Du PY and that other guy in the way before he meet CJ. It’s also quite interesting at the lower end of the top 16 as well. There is about 1000 points between the two Danish guys chasing for the second OLY place and although T. Sugiarto at No 18 looks like that he is out of it but he should try to get in the top 16 just in case one of his team mate drop out for whatever reason.

As for the WS the top 4 seeds for London are more or less confirmed. A. Goto at 18 is 1500 points behind L. Xin at 16 but with 1 game in hand LX can widen that gap by at least 3600 points. It’s unlikely that she can earn enough points to get into top 16 for qualification.

Again, similar to WS the MD top 4 seeds are almost there. The battle will be the second spot for the INA team. With many top teams missing Kido/Setiawan has a very good chance to grab that place with this tournament. The only threat in their half is Chia/Guo, a repeat performance of last week will put them in a very good position. Of course they have to beat their younger team mates if they are to meet in the SF, and with only Korea’s second pair at the other half they do have a good chance to win it. If so, their points will move up to No 8 and ahead of Chandra/Gunawan.

WD’s top 4 seeds are also almost confirmed. Korea’s Jung/Kim at No 9 is 600 points behind the Danish pair, if they finish in front of the Dan they will be qualify as well. Another battle is between the 2 Malaysian pairs with 1400 points between them for the solitary place. Can Iris Wang of USA catch up the 1500 points deficit to their Canadian Neighbour and join her sister to London? Unlikely after this week but we still got 4 months to go.

As for the MD, unfortunately Kido/Setiawan didn’t took advantage of the weaken field can only managed a QF place thus still are 2000 points behinds their younger team mates. Really love to see Kido/Setiawan have a chance to defense their title. And the XD, The British pair Robertson/Wallwork again failed to capitalise their first round victory over Adcock/Bankier and still 5000 points behind. Their chance for qualification is rapidly fading away.

thank you! with May 3rd quickly approaching, i think PG may have successfully prevented CJ from going to the Olympics. too bad for CJ as he didn't capitalize on the big opening PG gave him during KO. however, if CJ is desperate, maybe he will pull a Taufik and shows up in Australia.

but peter gade is aware of chen jin situation peter say he will decide his participation on tournament depend on chen jin ranking point

there are still lots of opportunities for CJ to catch up. Since he didn't played in last year's Thomas Cup, the TC prelim next month will be an easy 7000 points for him if he play. The German Open just before the AE, and the AE itself are all possibilities. After that, Swiss Open and as you said Auss Open and the India SS.

Basically he has to play all tournaments consecutively with the exception of Asian Badminton Championship until the Singapore Open 2012, Indonesia Open will not count towards the qualification so He has quite a lot of tournaments to play to squeeze the gap between him and Gade. As i see it, Gade is beginning to lose steam and fitness now, his game in Korea and Malaysia clearly said it all. Chen Jin was a retard for wasting the best chance to narrow it greatly should he made to the semis of the Korea Open (Lin Dan would have given him the walkover like I said). Well let's see how Chen Jin performs against the dangerous Tago-san tomorrow.

But it's not wise for PG to push himself to more tournaments just to hack CJ out of OG. That may make himself tired prior to OG. I think he should now plan for building up his form to the best towards OG disregard how CJ does. Given the inconsistent form of CJ, there is still lot of struggle in his quest. Guess LD's loss to JOJ is a message fr CH team the CJ must also insert more effort from his own part rather than just spoon feeding fr team mates. Let's see how CJ perform today.
