    From the badmintondenmark website:

    "History of CM

    Copenhagen Masters - A time of expectations, comfort, tradition and good experiences

    This international badminton tournament at the Falconer Hall sees the world's finest players doing battle in four categories: ladies singles, men's singles, men's doubles and mixdoubles. The action takes place on just one court and the spectators are seated on three sides, just two metres from the action, so they are guaranteed a lively show.

    Copenhagen Masters started in 1982, it was then named Scandinavian Masters and was held in the Circus Building in Copenhagen. Later the tournament was named Copenhagen Masters. The tournament has since 2004 been held in the Falconer Hall in Frederiksberg.

    The concept behind Copenhagen Masters was developed after a visit to London where a similar tournament were played in Albert Hall.

    Copenhagen Masters has always been held during the last days of Christmas. The tournament has always been very popular and attracted, the first year around 2200 people visited.

    Through all the years there has only been played on one court, wich gives an intimate atmosphere where the audience sit very close to the matches and players.

    The idea behind the Copenhagen Masters has always been to gather some of the world's best players and give the audience a fantastic experience with world-class badminton"

    Normally they choose to but put away the womens' doubles because itÝs not very amusing to watch (some say). It's not the countries that compete against each other. It's every players vs. every players. The system is groups.
    all players are picked and invited, you don't have to have special points or something.
    so itÝs not team vs. team. nonono...it's everybody against everybody in Mens singles, and eveyrbody against everybody in womens' singles etc etc."

    So, the priority seems to be to invite players from the Scandinavian/Europe-based region, first. And then, from other non-Scandinavian/Europe-based players.
    I see...thx for your info
    In WS, I believe Tine Ramussen is overwhelming fave to win, no major threat for her.

    IMHO, for this Copenhagen Masters, the players/organisers are not thinking of winning for their countries. It's far from it.

    It's a tournament created to display top Badminton matches without having to make it as an international challenge/battle.

    This is a 'friendly tournament'. It's how Badminton Denmark wishes to organise it.
    Country pride is never an issue in this tournament.
    Just ask the players/National Associations involved in it.

    I doubt it will be the matches as they will be broadcast by TV2 Sport and WOB.tv online which are both payed subscriptions. WOB.tv will only show the evening sessions and the finals evenhough the afternoon session will be recorded and shown on TV2 Sport. Probably has to do with the commentary .
