Anyway its really tough when come to young players, have to deal with Parents, existing coaches etc..

    .
    ONE DAY, we hope that ONE DAY our Malaysian players would not be requiring Government affiliates to be involved in selecting players, but just for providing funds to promote Badminton.

    Many Government affiliates understand little about Badminton.

    Anyway like ants implied, Malaysian parents will take some convincing, 'cos they focus more on education rather than sports. There are those sports schools, supposedly where young talents are nurtured, but we've heard of many budding talents rejected entry for whatever reason (connections or, ahem, moolah). Each sports school is supposed to specialized in only a few sports, but we haven't hit paydirt yet ......

    Unless your kid is really talented (like our squash queen Nicol David) or you have the dictatorial mindset of the late Dato' Haji Sidek Kamar (father of the Sidek brothers), kids are not normally exposed to career in sports.

    Anyway, back to the BWF's handling of the SS Finals. It is actually all about having proper planning and backup plans. Granted that BWF is not a profit-oriented organization, but it has to do effective selling on badminton for it to catch interest.

    Default Provisional List of Qualifiers

    This is what I manually computed, based on latest ranking + estimated no of pts gained in the HK Open. They are not necessarily in right ranking order or 100% accurate.

    Qualifiers - MS

    1. Lee Chong Wei - Malaysia
    2. Sony Dwi Kuncoro - Indonesia
    3. Joachim Persson - Denmark
    4. Chen Jin - China
    5. Peter Hoeg Gade - Denmark
    6. Lin Dan - China
    7. Taufik Hidayat - Indonesia
    8. Chan Yan Kit - Hong Kong

    * Note: Kenneth Jonassen was among the top 8, but Denmark already has 2 higher ranked qualifiers.

    Qualifiers - WS

    1. Zhou Mi - Hong Kong
    2. Tine Rasmussen - Denmark
    3. Lu Lan - China
    4. Zhu Lin - China
    5. Wang Chen - Hong Kong
    6. Pi Hongyan - France
    7. Xu Huaiwen - Germany
    8. Hwang Hye Youn - Korea

    * Note: Wang Lin was among the top 8, but China already has 2 higher ranked qualifiers. I do not know whether China is allowed to select any 2 of its players from the list of top 8, or strictly go through rankings. I suspect it is possible for Wang Lin (ranked 6th) to replace either Lu Lan (ranked 3rd) or Zhu Lin (ranked 4th).

    Qualifiers - MD

    1. Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan - Indonesia
    2. Mohd Fairuzizuan Tazari/Mohd Zakry Abd Latif - Malaysia
    3. Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen - Denmark
    4. Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae - Korea
    5. Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen - Denmark
    6. Tony Gunawan/Candra Wijaya - US/Indonesia
    7. Koo Kien Kiat/Tan Boon Heong - Malaysia
    8. Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng - China

    Qualifiers - WD

    1. Wong Pei Tty/Chin Eei Hui - Malaysia
    2. Du Jing/Yu Yang - China
    3. Vita Marissa/Lilyana Natsir - Indonesia
    4. Ha Eun Jung/Kim Min Jun - Korea
    5. Cheng Shu/Zhao Yunlei - China
    6. Lena Frier Christiansen/Kamilla Rytter Juhl - Denmark
    7. Miyuki Maeda/Satoko Suetsuna - Japan
    8. Lee Kyung Won/Lee Hyo Jung - Korea

    * Note: If LKW/LHJ does not compete (due to LKW's retirement), their place will be taken up by the next highest active ranked pair from any other country other than China.

    Qualifiers - XD

    1. Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir - Indonesia
    2. He Hanbin/Yu Yang - China
    3. Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter Juhl - Denmark
    4. Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung - Korea
    5. Anthony Clark/Donna Kellogg - England
    6. Xie Zhongbo/Zhang Yawen - China
    7. Robert Blair/Imogen Bankier - England/Scotland
    8. Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thungthongkam - Thailand

    abedeng ... Thank you for taking time to compile your list of SS qualifiers.

    Some players who missed a few SS events to concentrate on the Olympic Games have now found themselves unable to qualify for this 2008 SS Finals.

    Badminton is so different from Tennis. Tennis players would have concentrated less on the Olympics, but more on their Series Tournaments.

    Lee Chong Wei will be participating the SS Final, however, he will skip the Malaysia national final. I recall reading few articles from Malaysia press last week.

    Question Will Lee Chong Wei be participating in the 2008 SS Final?

    I think Han is more correct.

    I thought LCW skipped the 2008 Hong Kong Open SS to nurse his injury in order for him to prepare for the 2008 SS Finals. And I hope that LCW will be ready by then.

    Should be expecting an All-Out 'LCW vs LD" match there.

    Unfortunately Park Sung Hwan is exluded of above list, looks like Chan Yan Kit is the weakest qualifier compared to others.
