    Generally, most BWF tournaments will last between 5-6 days (start on Tuesday). If there are many entries, usually they will have 1 full day of Qualification Rd. The QF Rds. themselves will have different number of entries. And because of this variance, it's hard to say how many matches, in a QF Rd., a player or pair will play from one tourney to another. So, it's not so much because the system has changed.
    As for matches starting on Monday and last for 7 days, the only other exception where this would occur is usually during World Championships and Olympics. But those tourneys don't have any QF Rd as they start with R32 (in all 5 events).
    Are you sure they didn't change the system? Take Djarum Indonesia Super Series for example. In 2008, there were 55 entrants for MS, so 27 qualifiers (max is 32) played 3 matches in a single day for 4 places to join the other 28. In 2009, there were 66 entrants, but only 16 of them played 2 matches during the qualifications to reach the round of 32. It was likewise for the tournament in 2010, and all others that I've seen recently. Which means that they had reduced the field from 60 to only 44. They probably use the current rankings to determine who are eligible to participate. Pushing the qualifiers to Monday with 2 matches a day will increase the number of participants to 4 x 4 x 4 + 28 = 92. That will be good if the number of professional players increase with the influx of so much new money. The Yonex-Sunrise Hong Kong Open seeems to be slightly different in its scheduling of matches. The BWF website indicated this year's tournament as lasting 7 days. For an SS tournament. Perhaps they are trying something new.
    Anyway, thanks for all the photo and video uploads, especially the World Juniors this year. You popped by at Guadalajara? Off topic. Not really, actually. Misaki was in them .

    off topic:
    - I am looking at the 2008 INA Open draw and from the MS Qualification Rd., not all 27 players played in 3 matches. Actually only 21 players participated in that Qualif. Rd. Some did play 3 matches, but some others only played 2 matches.
    http://tournamentsoftware.com/sport/...C30369&draw=11
    The one in 2008 had more participants playing in the Qualif. Rd. than in 2009 thus probably why some players played 3 matches.
    - Yes, i missed the HK Open SS. For the HK Open SS, depending on the number of entries, they've been playing from Monday because of the number of available courts (smaller stadium).
    - A bit of correction. For the Olympics, usually they'll start on Sunday, not Monday. But yes, it will last for 8 days with different Finals ending on different days.
    - Yes, i was in Guadalajara, Mexico, this past April for the WJC. Hot and muggy place, but lots of cheap, good food (if you like mexican foods) and lots of good looking chicas.....Btw, i don't quite get why you brought up Misaki??..

    The system in 2008 was to play the qualifications based on a maximum of 32 players, so to end with 4, it required 3 matches on the qualification day. If there are less than 32 but more than 16, then some byes were awarded. There were 21 in the 2008 tournament probably because 6 of them withdrew. Nowadays, even if there are more than 16 players for qualification, only 16 are eligible, I think. So there are only 2 knockout rounds. They did away with the first round. But I'm not sure. I still remember the poor players slogging out with 3 matches per category in a single day.
    Ha ha, didn't know that the Queen Elizabeth Stadium was so small. I suppose floor space is a luxury there.
    Oh, because I mentioned all the photos and videos you uploaded. Misaki is in a number of them, so I guess it's appropriate to thank you in this thread. Didn't you know the players you were photographing ? Or is someone impersonating your namesake at webshots and youtube ?

    off topic:
    - Okay, i think i know where you're going. Yes, for the Qualif. Rd., perhaps BWF has changed the ruling/regulation for the number of players participating in the Qualif. Rd. since 2008. But perhaps it only applies for the SS tourneys. For GP/GPG level tourneys, i think they still allow more than 16 players in the Qualif. Rd. (and more than 4 qualifiers)
    (an example, this yr's U.S. Open GPG:http://tournamentsoftware.com/sport/...B19CB5&event=1)
    I've to do a bit of research abt that ruling change from BWF..or maybe you can help me spot the change(s).
    - You can check out past HK Open SS tourneys & QES photos from the Tournaments section. Or ask master kwun or Hau-ge about the stadium and how confine it is..
    - I didn't know/haven't heard abt Misaki (and a bunch of other junior players) prior to this yr's WJC. But i've heard of that Baddy Princess from Thailand. Lucky me as both were a delight to watch.

    LOL, I think you're really good at checking the BWF rules. I don't even know where to look. I was amazed at how fast you came back with BWF rulings the last time. But I'm sure they must have changed it, since I haven't seen 3 qualification rounds in a very long time. I had thought that the number of entrants had been dwindling. Only just a while ago did I realise that it was not the case.
    Since you're already here, let me borrow your photos with your kind permission. I think there will be much viewership in this thread.

    Thumbs up Thanks to all who have posted photos of Misaki for us at BC

    .
    It makes me wonder; sometimes I find Misaki's eyes so BIG, and sometimes her eyes appear to be so small.

    Anyway, thanks to all who have posted photos of Misaki.

    Thanks. Goodness, are they standing on the same level?
    Or is it a two-tier platform?

    Yup, that is a fact. Unless you use eyelid glue, then you can smile and have big eyes without trying.
    Misaki's eyes seem to be really big when she's playing badminton. Probably concentrating really hard on the shuttle, LOL. And her hair gets wet and pasted flat down like seaweed in a rice burger (below). She is like a character from an anime film. So cute.

    I think same level. Ratchanok's height is around 165cm to 167cm. But Misaki is only 159cm tall.

    yes. She and Matsudaira Kenta have a character from an anime film. They can film a real version of anime (Kenta be the leading man whilst Misaki be the leading lady).
