As I expected, they will straight away be sent to the SEA Games at Manila end of next month, which means no more overseas tournaments for the rest of the year. The bad news is....their rankings will plummet to where they originally were....the 60-70s. This is disappointing because if the draw is unfavorable to them, they will forever lose in the first round of every tournament. That is of course assuming they can make the main draw. No matter how hardworking they are in the training session, its not going to change the fact that ranking points and competing in tournaments are necessary. It was mentioned that their performance at the Indonesia Open were not satisfactory. Well, I personally thought the bad draw was one factor! They were even lucky to get one player in the quarter-final. Next year, they will only be involved in the German and Swiss Open (early January) but not the All-England and they have to do it the hard way....through qualifying to the main draw.
