    Well, looks NO team is going to the superseries if you believe the rumours of cancellation.

    As a badminton fan, it matters less. In terms of skills, CHN team still has slightly edge against the rest of the world. Did u "wow" when u saw LD played against LCW?
    With no CHN participating, it is like a B rated movie (minus the major stars)being played, far less exciting to watch especially if fans are paying to watch. The game now needs TH, LCW and PG, and all the CHN stars.
    As for CHN team still has slight edge over the rest of the world, on MS, XD and MD I might agree with you. In WS, WD, CHN still dominates.

    Unhappy Now...its Koreaan Team!!!

    After last week's announcement that China would not participate in the Super Series finals, Korea, too, showed signs of wear from the recent heavy schedule in the badminton tour.

    First, Korea's nine-member contingent that was registered for the Russian Open withdrew en masse. Then this week, the Badminton Korea Association announced the cancellation of the Korean Nationals, which were to have been held from December 12th to 15th. In addition, two other domestic tournaments were re-scheduled from January to August 2008.

    Among the reasons cited for the changes were the hosting of two international tournaments in the space of two months. The Suwon International Challenge just finished on Sunday and the Korea Open Super Series event kicks off on January 22nd, 2008.

    What's the source of this report?
    Anyway, it doesn't say that Korea will not be participating in the SS Finals

    I wonder if China's position will trigger a similar response from all the major badminton nations ... that will be quite unfortunate, to say the least.

    It carries medals and financial rewards as well as bragging rights?

    Without CHN participation we all can expect fair game play with no nonsense bad line calls or stupid umpire. Hooray!

    And no stupid comments by their stupid coach as well. but not so lucky in OG so all better watch out. I expect it to be full of dirt from him. Judging from their preparations, I will not discount the coach from his usual filthy tricks just to win in OG.

    Sigh. What's the point of the above post if the superseries final is not even taking place?

    Question SS Finals to be held after the Beijing Olympics 2008 ?

    .
    I assume that China will participate in the Super Series Finals if this event could be held after the Beijing Olympics 2008.

    Does anybody know when and where the SS Finals will be rescheduled to ?

    according to the BWF website, the SS final will be postponed to a date and venue to be determined later in 2008....

    Exclamation Too many SS events, IMHO, for BWF's first SS year of 2007

    Disagree here... BWF tried hard, in fact organised too many SS events, IMHO, for their first SS year of 2007.

    It is the sponsorships and venues that are lacking, not that BWF wasn't trying.

    Always ready for any challenge, Saina Nehwal's entry into a Super Series final on Saturday is not a surprise at all. Badminton world's most promising player last season had remarked prior to the Asian leg of events that there was still time before she consistently made finals of Super Series events. "There's a long way to go before I win a Super Series," the World No. 8 had said, clearly not fancying her chances in the final.
