    Although the WC and several major GPs have been cancelled, it seems the smaller GPs are still going to proceed?
    This week the Spanish Open is being held in Madrid and there are several big names participating in MS, notably Peter Gade, Anders Bosen and Peter Rasmussen. The other 4 events also feature a few well-known names.
    I wonder if these players will benefit toward the to-be-held WC from all the tournament-playing they are getting as compared to the Asian players such as Chinese who are currently in isolated training?

    The Spanish Open section can be found at World Badminton Net:

    Notice that Eva is playing in the mixed, but not the women's doubles. With the travelling involved, isn't it logical to play in two events, particularly doubles players?

    No, I have never had the opportunity to train in HK before. Did I remind you of somebody you knew?:)

    A couple of possibilities based on who I know from postings.

    Wildstyler or Reaper.
