    BWF might have found the answer to grueling long matches that normally screw up the schedule.
    With this 5 x 11 points system, matches are relatively shorter.
    But are fans more excited and entertained?

    The last point was clearly out at the backline with the benefit of viewing TV replay but unfortunately the umpire, whether quite rightly or not,claimed it was too far for him to see it and make an overrule - unlike the umpire at the Incheon AG who actually overruled the linecall on the far side corner against Lin Dan who justifiably protested but in vain.

    I truly look forward to the day, the sooner the better, when Hawk-Eye challenge system is a standard feature in all badminton tournaments big or small owing to improved technology, wider availability and greater affordability.

    It could be that the INA MD pair just couldn't put the controversial linecall behind them soon enough and it affected their focus in the 4th set, perhaps aggravated by the shortness of the 11-pt system.

    Congrats to AJAY JAYARAM for winning a GP title. After his shoulder operation, he did not participate in the tournaments for nearly 1 year. Now he started to participate in tournaments in order to gain his ranking even though there are no other indian participation.

    Five titles by five different countries. One for host country.

    Truly not. The new 5x11 points scoring system is not entertaining. It is always like you sit for watching an interesting game but when you try to follow the match it is already over!!!.
    In this shorter version of the game, skills is subdued by luck factors. Just look at the MD match, one erroneous line call by the line judge have a greater impact in the new scoring system then 3X21 version. In each and every match there will be certainly erroneous line calls or service judge errors (some service faults might not be caught and some might be wrongly) as this is decided by human decision at the last minute. The players will be at disadvantage since there is little room to bounce back in this new scoring system.
    For so long, they have not changed the scoring system of Tennis and everyone knows that the game is pretty long.... I wonder why BWF would want to shorten the game when it is already short compared to 3X14 point system......!!!

    The 5x11 scoring system proves that you need to be mentally tougher than the 21-point system as each game is now shortened.

    You either regain your composure ASAP or lose it in the 5x11 system. In the 21-point system, you have time to regain your composure and close the gap.

    The new scoring system also allows for less catching up, points wise. Previously, if you were, say, 6 points behind, it's possible to close up the gap and even it out and possibly taking the lead. In the new scoring system, such a wide gap is disastrous. The odds of losing the game is higher. When the next game starts, your opponent would probably have changed tactics on advice of his coach and you need to readjust, giving more room for errors.

    Badminton will not only be physically tougher (I think we are going to look at quicker games looking at the duration of the matches), but also mentally tougher. If this scoring system is going to be permanent, guess we will be looking at upsets for quite some time while the players adjust to the new scoring system.

    Yup, they're expected to catch up his seniors soon.

    Absolutely not, too short to finish.

    Indeed, one title each for five nations. INA suffered big losing, only nailed 1 of 4 finals through Widianto/Dili.

    I think jonathan is over rated . Just for me, he looks like an average player when compared to all other indonesian juniors especially firman, anthony and ishan. I bet that these 3 players can beat jonathan at any point of time
    .

    I expected vita to get a title. But she did lose in the finals. No idea why?.
