A new kind of tournament has been founded : Continental Championship.
According to Indo's paper Jawapos, for the first time, it will be crashed between Europa and Asia.
If this event success, later on all continents will have its representative.
The event will take place in Manila, Philipine on 12-14 July 2005, 2 days after Malaysia Open.
For this year (first time) the players will be choosen by the organizer. Later will be choosen by the regional organization (ABC, EBU, etc.....).
Each continent send 9 players. There are 7 matches : 2 MS, 2 WS, 1 MD, 1 WD and 1 XD.
From Indonesia : Taufik Hidayat and Luluk/Alven.
The organizer will give a money price for the winners.
The winner get 50.000 US$, the runner up get 20.000 US$.
The organizer will take the players from KL on 11 or 12 July and back to KL on 15 July. This is for the players who attend to Malaysia Open.
Friends from Philipine, can you confirm this news ?

asia vs europe?
just read in badminton-indonesia.com that there will be somekind of inter-continent badminton match in manila(i dont know about it, so if u do, please explain), it says that it will be held by both abc and ebu, that there will be 2 ms, 2 ws, and on md, wd, and xd
it also says that taufik and alven/luluk are 'invited' i wonder what that is

I thought the prize money was only 5,000 and 2,000?

the idea looks interesting, but at the moment, i think every1 will agree that it will be a very one sided matchup. We heard about China vs ROTW. now with the addition of Indonesia and Korea, Asia will most likely be unbeatable

(world ranking under brackets)
MS1 Lin Dan (1) vs Kenneth Jonassen (2)
MS2 Lee Chong Wei (4) vs Peter Gade (3)
WS1 Xie Xingfang (1) vs Pi Hongyan (3)
WS2 Zhang Ning (2) vs Yao Jie (4)
MD Luluk/Alven (2) vs Eriksen/Lundgaard (1)
WD Yang/Zhang (1) vs Tripp/Wright (8)
MX Zhang/Gao (2) vs Robertson/Emms (1)
When looking at world ranking, only WD seems an obvious match.
Europe is better ranked in three matches and Asia in four matches.
So nothing so obvious just like that... it will all depend whether both sides have their best players fielded or not!

I just hope taufik plays instead of lee chong wei.

Obviously Taufik would have a good chance of playing second MS.
Also Mia Audina could be playing in WS for Europe.
Not sure Asia would field all Chinese WS and WD (not needed anyway) so there could be some tighter matches there too...
Just wait and see!

The cogs are in motion...nice to know all hard work by the relevant people are not being wasted
05-27-2005, 04:37 AM #16
Fu/Cai would have a brighter chance than Luluk/Alven, but there are too many Chinese already.
