    For CHN players I dunno why they withdrawn but for MAS players I know why they withdrawn, it's because MAS general election is coming and they decided to stay put in their country to make sure they able to vote in their homesoil...

    just want to ask the same question about the article.

    Chen Long isn't there yet, but don't know if the author has sixth sense and can see what will happen in the future.

    CHN top players pass on a SS, but play in the not-so-important Asian Champ. They really give a lot of faces to Taiwan.

    Ahh...didn't see this coming. I am sorry, limsy:p.

    Tian is a very fit player no doubt but I dont think he is good enough to be world no 1 anytime soon;). Just my honest opinion, we shall see :D.

    There is a japanese player entered in WD called "Ayaka Takahashi" (just now i am seeing it).. And wondered, whether she is a distant relative (may be sister) to "Sayaka Takahashi" or just name resemblance:confused:??

    Oh nothing serious; just the creative minds at the Times of India at work. Makes the news so much more interesting ;)

    *Groan!* Limsy! Grow up! :p

    Nope... not the Indian sports journalists. :(
    Especially, the articles on 'the times of india' are the least reliable.

    'The Hindu' and 'Indian Express' are better sources of information for sports but sometimes even they make some blunders though:rolleyes:

    Ayaka Takahashi is Sayaka Takahashi's older sister. Sayaka Takahashi was with Panasonic previously. Starting January 2013, she is no longer with Panasonic, but Unisys (same with her sister Ayaka Takahashi).
