    Unless something major changes, he will not play in the Superseries. He made it clear last fall that he would only be entering events where the BKA was not sending players. Canada was not an exception because that was a contingent made up of one men's university and one women's pro team. The fact that a few of them were national team players was incidental. Of course, since the Thomas Cup, the BKA has changed its tune somewhat and talked about having him play at the Asian Games but the issue has not been inviting him back to the national team, as far as I know, and so he will likely continue to avoid entering the same events.

    I don't think points are the issue. The BKA has already said publicly that they want him to play in Incheon and he told the press a few days later that he had yet to discuss it with the BKA. My guess is that if they ask him to play, it will be for the team event. He already has three silvers, one gold, and one bronze from the last three Games. I doubt they'd put him in the individual competition. No one thinks he can beat Lee, Lin, or Chen without a lot of luck. It's not possible for Lee to pass Lee Dong Keun so he can only play third singles. Simon will be up to second singles by the Asian Games but Lin Dan will still be third, unless he plays Brazil or Palembang.

    I understand the logic for the team event. To have him third is a real asset for the team, though to be second would be even better.
    But why not also in the individual competition? Can't Korea register three players? He is certainly a chance for Korea to grab a medal, and at Games the total number of medals by Nation is what is important for those organizations.
    I myself doubt he can grab a bronze, but it is not impossible.

    I don't believe so. Every team has been limited to two entries, in the past. China was in Guangzhou, too, even as the host team. Only Chen Jin and Lin Dan in MS, Zhang/Zhao and He/Ma in XD, Wang/Yu and Tian/Zhao in WD, etc.

    I see. Quite unfortunate!
