    Now, at year's end, with SSF, a high prized, ranking point rich tournament. we have 5, possibly 6 withdrawal in first round of group matches. it's not inconceivable to assume that after a year of highly packed schedule and emotional draining OG, fatigue and injuries are catching up to the world's best players.

    This from LCW : “ I think the schedule of BWF is too dense, we have to play so many tournaments every year, thus it’s difficult for player to play very well and be at his at his best in every match. In order to avoid punishment, we have to play which may lead to injuries.” My condition is different from Lin Dan. I’m much more hard working than him as my pressure is bigger in Malaysia. Now I drafted a plan for myself to play until Asia Games, then I’ll check my status and consider if I will continue and Play until Olympic Gamed held in Rio.”
    http://www.badzine.net/news/ss-final...”/22640/

    It does sounded like LCW wishes he can pick and choose events to play so that it matches best with his condition. But fans and sponsor pressure made it impossible to do so. Year in year out, he's been playing in almost all SS events and some even lesser tournaments. Somehow he becomes the most hardworking man in the business, the king of SS events without a world title. People expect to see him in every event and perform well, as GC commented in every LCW match "27 SS titles" "the great supporter of SS, comparing to LD ..."
    Don't you think playing like this is also diminishing his chance at world title? Playing all year long non-stop and going after every title, don't you think he'd rather aiming for one major title only in a year, and schedule his time accordingly? But, no, he couldn't. the pressure seems from everywhere: the fans, home country, bwf rules ..., everything seems to be against that.

    I'm not saying LCW could have won a world title for sure if he focused his schedule in peaking his condition at such event rather than going after every tournament non-stop, but don't you agree his chance would go up by a lot if he could've done so? Only now, near end of his career, with the hope of a world title slowly slipping, he mustered the courage to speak up.

    Of course, LYB didn't complain on BWF schedule for the good of the world badminton. He's Chinese national head coach, he's speaking for his players. However, the point still stands, the packed event schedule from BWF plus various national leagues is a factor in player fatigue and injuries. And I believe, if speaking freely, many top player would like a less packed BWF SS schedule, and rid of the monetary penalty.

    My point is, current BWF Schedule and SS rules is good for the sports spreading, but not good for its top players, potentially shorten their playing life. And i do not believe cross sports comparison to tennis is valid, different income level, different national system, different stamina usage during a game, different probability of sustain an injury during a match when player are not in top conditions... Simply too many difference to compare an single aspect, schedule between 2 sports.

    Don't discount everything coming out of CBA camp. Many issues they raised do have merits. In this case, CBA has done very good job of shielding its players somewhat from schedule issue, and peak them for major events. I think many players from other countries would love such support.
    Well said. I strongly feel LCW should take a break, have a really good rest, go for his honeymoon, enjoy marital bliss. But not too long, say two months should be enough;otherwise it might take quite a bit of effort and time to regain his form and condition. I believe, LCW will come back as strong as before,he's good for a couple of years,hope to see him in Rio'16.

    Saina's chance to progress into semifinal is very slim now, after suffered losing twice. Ratchanok def. last year SS Finals runner-up Saina Nehwal, 21-13 / 21-16.

    Is that Intanon yelling after winning a point, seldom hear her doing that? And She beats Saina convincingly in straight sets,21-13,21-16. I think Saina may be out of the running with two losses. See how the other two performs.

    A tight first game won by LXR,25-23. LXR not as sharp and aggressive as she can be, Eriko put up stiff resistance to stretch her.

    LXR surged towards the end of G2 with six consecutive points to win 21-15 and take the match. But I feel she is a bit too inconsistent, somewhat erratic, impatient with long rallies - still room for improvement.

    He did it to eliminate Kenichi Tago, last match for HKV tomorrow will face Daren Liew, he has good prospect to manage semifinal slot.

    Vittinghus is the surprise package in the MS category here, roundly dispatching K Tago, 21-18,21-13. I'd expect him to be the 2nd-placed finisher in his group.
