    this is the Grand Finale, so hopefully the rules will be bent a little to allow enough top players to qualify!

    Malaysia to host prestigious event — but there’s no Lin Dan

    By RAJES PAUL

    KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia has been given the honour of hosting the long-awaited inaugural Super Series Masters Finals from Dec 18-21 in Kota Kinabalu.
    But there’s one setback. Olympic Games men’s singles champion Lin Dan of China will not grace the presitigous US$500,000 tournament after failing to meet the qualification requirement.
    Only the top eight singles players and top eight doubles players after 12 legs of the Super Series will feature in the lucrative Masters Finals.
    And even if a shuttler is ranked in the top eight, the player must have competed in eight Super Series events to be eligible for the Masters Finals.
    Lin Dan, who is currently ranked in the top eight, has only competed in three legs of the Super Series — South Korea (runner-up), All-England (runner-up) and Swiss Open (champion).
    All the qualifiers will be finalised after the last two legs in China (Nov 18-23) and Hong Kong (Nov 25-30).
    In fact, even Malaysia’s top players have yet to qualify although all of them are in the top eight bracket.
    National No. 1 men’s singles ace Lee Chong Wei has competed in only seven Super Series so far, including the on-going French Open while top women’s singles player Wong Mew Choo and top men’s doubles pair Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong have taken part in seven and six respectively.
    That means all of them can’t afford to skip the last two Super Series in China and Hong Kong.
    Badminton fans can now expect all the players to make a last-ditch effort to feature in the last two Opens to qualify for the Masters Finals.
    Yesterday, the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) and Badminton World Federation (BWF) announced the appointment of Malaysia as the host at a joint press conference at Stadium Juara in Bukit Kiara.
    The BWF said they were happy to finally be able to host the Masters Finals after having to scrap last year’s Super Series season finale due to financial difficulties.
    “We were disappointed last year. But we have some good partners to make it happen this year,” said BWF secretary general Stuart Borrie, who added that BAM, Yonex Sunrise and international television broadcast rights holder ISC were their key partners.
    I just revisited the BWF Statutes on SS Finals:
    9. SUPERSERIES MASTERS FINAL
    Each year after the Super Series tournaments have ended, there will be a final tournament to be
    known as the Super Series Masters Finals. This tournament will be held subject to suitable
    sponsorship arrangements being made.
    9.1. The venue
    The BWF will fix a venue for this event and notify all players and Member Associations.
    9.2. Invitations to the Super Series Masters Final
    9.2.1. The highest ranked 8 players/pairs in the Super Series Standing list, will subject to
    what follows, receive invitations to compete in the Super Series Masters Finals.
    9.2.2. Players/pairs will qualify unless a total of two players/pairs from any one Member
    Association would thereby be exceeded in that event.
    Deleted:
    competition

    Deleted:
    fourteen

    10. EVENTS PLAYED UNDER THE POOL SYSTEM OR IN GROUPS


    So, I didn't find anywhere in the rulebook that a player/pair have to compete in at least 8 SS... I wonder how that Malaysian reporter can come up with his version of the rules...

    Default ^^Good cross checking..^^

    ..appreciate for checking the ruling on this; seems there's no criteria which demands players(s) to participate in 8 SS.
    Although, looking at the list below, 1 or 2 of the players could be booted from the top 8 ranking. And we all know, in the MS event, Taufik is trying hard to get in or secure his spot.

    4. CJ
    5. KJ
    6. PG

    It's great to see that SDK is now only a few points just below LCW.

    Perhaps after the next 2 SS tournaments, SDK could overtake LCW.

    Lin Dan can qualify to play in SS Finals afterall, the reporter looked up the rules or this thread, hehe

    Badminton: Lin Dan could qualify for Sabah

    By : K.M. Boopathy


    lLin Dan needs to win the China Open which begins tomorrow, and Hong Kong Open (Nov 25-29) to play in the Super Series Masters Finals in Kota Kinabalu.
    THE Super Series Masters Finals could see Olympic champion Lin Dan of China getting a chance to compete in Kota Kinabalu on Dec 18-21 although the World No 2 has only competed in three events so far.

    There was confusion in the qualifying process initially as most players were under the impression that they must play a minimum of eight Super Series events to be eligible but the tournament regulations issued by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) has made it clear such a clause does not exist.


    In order to qualify, the players must be ranked in the top eight of the Super Series standings and in cases where there are more than three players from one country in the top eight, only the top two make the cut.

    Lin Dan is only ranked 16th with 24,800 points but if he can win the China Open which begins tomorrow, and Hong Kong Open (Nov 25-29), he has a good chance of making the cut.

    Currently, Chen Jin is China's highest ranked player at No 4 with 37,940 points while Bao Chunlai is sixth with 35,760. Chen Yu, inactive on the international scene any longer, is ranked 15th with 25,260 points.
    Chunlai, should he falter before the semi-finals in China and Hong Kong, will have to concede his place to Lin Dan if the latter secures both titles.

    Indonesian Taufik Hidayat's job will be tougher if Lin Dan qualifies as the former is in eighth position and will have to look for at least semi-final berths in China and Hong Kong.

    Malaysia will not affected by the ruling as Lee Chong Wei, ranked first in the Super Series, has already confirmed his place while Zakry Latif-Fairuzizuan Tazari, ranked second, should also make the cut.

    Women's doubles Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui are virtually assured of their place as they occupy top spot.

    Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong will also be in a race to qualify as they are in 15th position but semi-finals spot in China and Hong Kong will earn them a place as the gap between the Malaysian pair and the world's top eight pairs are not that vast.

    I suppose robin7 is right, that is a tactical withdrawal on BCL's part.

    Well, although it benefits LD, it would be nice to see him do battle at Likas next month. If he qualifies, of course.

    The reporter Rajes Paul who wrote about the minimum 8 SS played in one year... is not very familiar with World Badminton rules, but somehow dare to write such an elaborate analysis... Many BC Members can write better [more accurate] articles than him...

    i think that if the worlds top players don't compete then this tourney isn't going to be that prestigious. especially for the mens singles. if the current world and olympic champion cannot qualify, then something if flawed.
