After the 3rd phase of invitation
All 63 entries (plus 1 more wild card by the host) have been confirmed. The lowest-ranked entry (62nd entry) by merit is ranked 124. The lowest entry (63rd entry), being the top representative from Africa, is ranked 130.
No one significant turned down his invitation.
This means no invitation for Kuan BH and Xia XZ.

5 entries yet to be filled. Lowest-ranked invitee is ranked 131. Lowest-ranked entry is the African representative, ranked 160.
Significant invitations turned down are Tine Rasmussen (injured), Jun Jae Youn (unknown reason) and Seo Yoon Hee (unknown reason). Korean places taken up by Lee Yun Hwa and Hwang Hye Youn. There seems to be no Danish representatives as all invitations to them are turned down.
For Gong Ruina to be invited, 7 out of the next 11 invitations have to be turned down.

10 entries yet to be filled.
Invitations have gone back up to the top of the ranking list. New invitations at the top of the ranking are:
Laybourn/Steffensen (as 4th Danish pair)
Limpele/Hian (as 4th Indon pair)
Chew/Choong (as 4th Malaysian pair)
Sato/Sasaki (as 3rd Japanese pair)
Archer/Clark (as 3rd English pair)
Trueman/Palethorpe (as 4th English pair) - never heard of them
Ha TK/Yim BE (as 3rd Korean pair)
If any of the 10 invitations are turned down, the next in turn to be invited are:
Guo Zhendong/Xie Zhongbo
Choong/Lee (if Chew/Choong decline)
Interestingly, Chew/Choong can decline their invitation and hope that one other pair do the same (which is quite likely). Then, Choong/Lee (the supposedly stronger combination) will get the invitation. Of course, Guo/Xie will also be invited.

11 entries yet to be filled. Apparently, Olsen/Schjoldager have decided to accept the invitation after initially refusing it.
Invitations have gone back to the top of the rankings, but Du/Yu still cannot be invited as the China already has the maximum of 4 entries. Amazingly, Japan, Malaysia and England will have 4 entries as well if those invited in this phase accept the offer.

11 entries yet to be filled.
Invitations have gone back to the top of the rankings, so England and Denmark looks likely to have 4 entries each. There is a danger of not having the full draw here.

It is not possible to change partners per se. But you can decline an invitation and let another pair down the ranking list get invited. But I don't know what happens when you withdraw after you have accepted.

<QUOTE>The website also says that there are no more additions to the mens Single's event, as all the entries are finalized.
Which means no chance for Xia
oops...sorry...just saw that, you already posted the info on the post.
