Superseries event possible for Rian-Yoke... BWF still uses notional ranking to determine the order of pairs who wishes to participate in a particular Superseries. Thus, since both Rian and Yoke have always been active in the past 12 months, their individual records should be good enough to allow them to directly participate in the China Superseries in Guangzhou and Hong Kong Superseries maindraw... Now for some serious simulation..., if you were Rian-Yoke badminton managers, which tournaments will you participate in? The actual events are as follows: Week Event 35. Indonesia Challenge 36. ..."blank" means: no viable tournament options 37. 38. Chinese Taipei Open GP Gold 39. 40. Macau Open GP Gold 41. 42. Dutch Open GP 43. Denmark Superseries 44. France Superseries 45. Vietnam Open GP 46. Indonesian National Championship 47. China Superseries in Guangzhou 48. Hong Kong Superseries 49. Russian Open GP Gold 50. Italy Challenge Note 1: most badminton pros will say that they prefer a maximum of 2 tournaments in succession and then practice for 2 weeks to regain their form... 3 tournaments in succession are too tough. Especially far away from the home-base... Note 2: economics is always on everybody's mind... spending money for plane tickets just to loose in the 1st round is painful. Thus, people tend to choose tournaments in which they can most probably perform well in [reach the quarterfinals, semifinals, etc.]. Also, for Rian-Yoke's rankings, it is better to win an International Challenge event like this week compared to loosing in the 2nd round of a Superseries... badMania, yannie, anybody, care to give your opinion?
