    It is funded by 世纪城(Century City), a big real estate company in Dongguan. It's true non-Chinese players can be trained there.
    There are enough media coverage in China. Foreign media don't cover this probably because: First, it's an exhibition match, the four kings are invited as individual players and associations are not involved, which means national glory is not involved. (You can say it's a "mere" commercial activity.) Second, the organizers somehow want to "lay low" about this. They seems have changed the origianl plan to show it on national TV. The reason is unknown, while I think if they give this tournament too much publicity and one of the "kings" can't make it, it will be a great shame, so perhaps they thought about it too.

    TXH is not a consultant, he is the principal.

    Or maybe as TXH said, there is no space to put on cameras.

    Is more like an friendly match so just take it as what it offer as face value, no need to read too deep and ask so many why not? I actually enjoy watching the match between Lee Chong Wei vs Taufik in the tsunami victim exhibition game(I forgot the exact name for that exhibition), I must admit, that was the first time I truly didn't care who win between my two idols.
    As long as these players make the game close and show their trick shot and entertain us is good enough. Good for players to gain extra incomes and good for fan to get entertain.
    Is the matches going to be shown on TV or live on internet?

    Agree... Same here; I want to be entertained. I want to watch good matches between good players.

    Luckily, there is only ONE Chinese player, Lin Dan, in this tournament. Therefore, we don't expect that walkover will be staged (which is the most disappointing thing that we Badminton fans can be presented with, when we are following a tournament).

    On the positive note, yes it is admirable that CHN can stage this event with the promised price money. It is something that BWF or other country indeed need to look at and study. How they can promote and bring in big sponsor and market the event to the general public. Cos at the end of the day, these sponsors want something (sometimes not monetarily) in return, namely publicity, marketing, or simply pleasing the audience.

    Peace; brotherhood; love.
    A chance to smuggle TXH out of there.
    Promotion of badminton through such endorsements.
    More ideas for the THA.
    Meet LYB face to face privately, take his money and tell him exactly what they think of his ways!
    Discuss reciprocal "guest teacher" arrangements.

    LCW still eager to defeat LD. That might be one of the reasons LCW come to China, he might also learn a new tactic from a player who face LD before facing LCW. However there is a possibility that LD might lose to his opponent before facing LCW. Again, this chance is quite low as LD is the only CBA representative.

    Actually this year (2011) could be the last year for all these 4 top players to appear at this event.

    Next year, if still done under the same format, I think LCW could be the only one left (best from Malaysia) to appear; for I could see that the best players coming from China, Denmark and Indonesia could be different players.

    For PG and LCW, it's a stepping stone to HK Open. For all, appearance money is important for their occupation as professionals.

    I think LCW should be more aware that its not a one way traffic, as much as he wants to make more good records againt LD, its also LD and the rest of CHN MS team will get another chance to study and learn how to anticipate LCW in the future. SO its really depend how LCW looking at his own position currently, if he really confidence he's on top of his game, then no need to come. In fact by coming it gives LD some upper hand in the mental department.
