I thought the BWF has accepted Saina's plea for injury as the reason for skipping the skipping the 2010 SS Masters Finals.

absolutely agree with twobeer
we all love the backhand king, taufik hidayat
but..fact is fact.. and the fact is LD's career achievement is just too good to be true.. and still as a fan of the backhand king, I must say Taufik's career is "great but still not even close to LD's"

It would be more interesting and good for the game and the fan if LYB ask Lindan not to retire and walk over and fake in the game. Why is he so good to stage the exhibition? We as a fan always want a good fighting spirit, sportmanship, not exhibition or fixing the game and so on. Simply make the competions in the open series and bwf matches clean and play with heart and fighting to entertain and respect the opponent and the fan and the sport world, that is good enough. We do not want a exibition match anymore, it is too much already in the world tour in which the CHN team participate.

I think PG LCW and TH should all WO at last minute before their matches. This will give LYB biggest present
And give CHN fans a bit of dose, how it feels buying a ticket and see nothing LOL

Finally, finally, badminton can offer tenth the prize money of a grand slam tournament. And I've heard they want to make this yearly.

@Ludida...is there any advertisement there for this exhibition? It seems it is quiet...from the beginning I got this news from the player..so far no media has reported even Badzine has no clue...

Guys..regardless what LYB does on WO..we should applaud this event at least Badminton can offer big money.....remember our goal is to make Badminton as big as Tennis....we should appreciate Chinese sponsors.

This edition of exhibition match is used as a celebration for the opening of Li Yongbo Badminton School in Dongguan. Because the matches will take place on the school courts, there are not many seats(less than 2000). Most of the tickets will be complimented away.
Here are some pictures:

Wow!!! That's massive!!! Is it part of a larger sports complex?
Nice pics of TXH; looks very statesmanlike!
Thanks for the pics, Lucida!
Do you know who the guy is, with the black shirt in pic 4?

This also raises some interesting questions, which I'm sure many people will be asking sooner or later.
Will LYB be stepping down from the CBA to take up full-time duties here?
Will TXH be involved full-time at the school?
Will this school be open to international students? (I think it would, given the publicity and PR they are investing in...)
Will they have an English website available?
