Lin Dan could still make it for SS Final?
Apparently, it said Lin Dan could still make it without having to play a minimum of 8 SS...

..according to BWF's rules, there is no rule which says a player/pair must compete in **a minimum** of 8 SS to qualify..see:http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...t=61269&page=6 (post #91)

Ya... the first time I saw that news article I thought the same thing, must compete in 8. Turns out no rules like that =)
Glad that they didn't put that in or most people wouldn't be competing in the Finals~

LD can make it if he gets another title or runner up and it depends on Tago'sperformance as well...if Tago decides not to come to HKG then LD's chance is much bigger...

this SS rule is self defeating, shutting out top players for missing out some tournaments. Top players bring in the crowd and sponsorship $$$. This SS rule only hurt bwf and badminton in general. If TH, LD and lcw stop playing for 6 months, would us fan be piss off if they can't compete in SS next summer?

Tago did not come to HKG so door is wide open for LD.....

Even if he doesn't qualify, LD should be awarded a wild card or something like that.

What's my choice???...
a. sad - not to see him play for the last time this yr with the best MS players..
b. mad - for having this last minute scrambled announcement by the BWF to hold the event..if they'd told us earlier, most likely LD would've participated in more tourneys..
c. don't really care - because i'm not the one sponsoring the event; will just enjoy it..
d. happy - because other players will have an opportunity to participate and get a piece of the US$500k prize money...
Btw, i wonder if kwun or mods will make a poll for this, to see what everyone's choice will be about LD participating/not participating in the SS Finale.

maybe u should send a pm to kwun or other moderator to create a poll about this
11-28-2008, 01:18 AM #12
Of course. Who is he? He is Lin Dan.

LD is @ #9 (1160 pts behind #8 TH) in SS standing after China Open. Since there are 3 Danes in the Top 8, LD has guaranteed his place in the SS Finale.

seems that Huangkwokhau knows everything,,,,,,, but it's just false...
Huangkwokhau should worry about Taufik Hidayat position since Lin Dan has a huge chance to kick Taufik from top 8 rank....... but since there was 3 Denmark players and 3 Chinese player there,,,, than Taufik Hidayat still can go to the super series final as LUCKY LOOSER or WILD CARD...
What a rules set by BWF.....
