who's to blame if your house got burglarized? the burglar or the one who leaves the front door wide open? i wonder if others have noticed it. but some of us who has reviewed each days' proceeding might have noticed the way BWF scheduled the matches. in each group, consistently, the matches between the top players has been schedule to the last day, 7/31. what that means is that by 7/31. the top 2 pairs have played the lesser pairs and therefore by that time, they already qualified for the knockout round. the match between them is meaningless in terms of qualification but hold great weight when it comes to placement for the knockout. by scheduling it this way BWF leave the door wide open for the players/coaches to manipulate their placement, thus creating such a fiasco. if they had scheduled the top 2 pairs to play earlier in the tournament, this may have been prevented. yes, the burglars are wrong, but so is the one leaving the door open.
