    Yeah I had read that as well. Surprisingly hard to find that info on when the "open era" began but I'm sure someone around here should now (for tennis it seems to be 1968)

    Another reason it may be due to the age of the reporter - probably born in 1970.

    A 30 year old reporter might think 1970 and before was prehistoric.....

    I consider the "open era" began when China was accepted/included to participate by the International Badminton Federation.

    It was in 1982 (CMIIW).

    If I'm not wrong the Open era started when the Olympics was opened to professionals, it was sometime in the past when Martina Natratilova reigned.She made a remark "amateur,shmateur" when the OIC denied pros to participate in the Olympics.
    The first badminton pro was either Frost or Misbun sometime in the 80s.

    Seems to me it isn't strictly defined as it is in tennis.

    The term Open era is classified in most sports as a "C" change in the make up of the sport. In tennis for example it was when Professionals & amatuers could play together. In some sports it is post war.

    For badminton - not formally defined (Altough Chris maybe right in the context the commentator on MS was talking about).

    It could have sth to do with admitting badminton into the Olympics, the AE was always an amateur event until it was opened to

    pros,then it was changed to the Yonex AE Open.

    Gill Clark commented that if LD had won this edn of AE he would be the first in the AE Open era to win 5 titles , as it is he won 4 out of 8 finals

    tying Frost's record.To LD it was sth worth pursuing.

    But the 2006 AE title won by Lungaard and Eriksen was achieved with some subtle (but easily analysed) help from AE officials.

    AE2006 moreso a factor of capitulation by LWW/CTF

    LWW and CTF themselves are masters of mind games on court.

    but who`s the current number 1 now?
    they might not be the most powerful, skillful or anything, but their combination and their dynamicism is top class. they work best as partner compared to other pairs based on current form.

    How come you left KKK/TBH out? You mean the MAS MD s neither lethal nor skillful? How did they take out FHF/CY and MK/HS? Planets properly aligned two days in a row but misaligned on Finals day?
