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

Taufik era may past, but then he is considered a good player in his age. If u doubt me, let's see what Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei can do 2-3 years from now.
    It given that LD has achived more than ANY other badmintonplayer in history, So he will no doubt go down in history as the greatest, If not Axelsen or someone in the future can surpass his achievments .-) Dont get me wrong.. I love Taufik, but you cannot even with the best will say that his career are even close to as succcesul as Lin Dans.

    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

    They are not there for fun, they are there for the prize money. Although it is called an exhibition match, participants will try to win nontheless.
    Finally, finally, badminton can offer tenth the prize money of a grand slam tournament. And I've heard they want to make this yearly.

    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?

    Looks like a direct, no-nonsense kind of man.
    The Badminton School appears to be part of a larger sports complex. Is that correct? Or are the other facilities just ancillary to the badminton school?

    Thanks for pointing that out. And congratulations to all involved in this project!

    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?
