    Another learning experience for Srikanth after last week challenged Lee CW.

    Agree, WS discipline is still competitive in the absence of last year champion and runner-up.

    Big question why INA squad misses BAC :confused:

    Don't you read the news that they are having a training camp to prepare TUC in Kudus?

    Well, but still, I guess sending out those youngster in XD like Gloria, Edi, Alfian, or even Jordan/Debby or Widianto/Dili wouldn't hurt because they are mixed specialist and is not needed much in TUC.

    I don't get why China withdraw Chen Long, Wang Zhengming, and Du Pengyu.

    If CBA wanted to get Lin Dan into the draw, why not just withdraw the lower ranked players that are still higher than Lin Dan?

    I think it's clear from the draw that, in the case of China as well, none of the players who are bound for the TUC are going to Gimcheon. The only exception is perhaps Wang Shixian. The reason for not sending Chen, Wang, and Du is thus clear. What is less clear is the reason for pulling Wang Shixian away from Uber Cup training. I wonder if the Chinese are intent on pulling off a sweep with their B team. With all those talented youngsters and Lin Dan, they have a very good chance and the only exception is in WS, where Wang Shixian is perhaps the best single-threat chance in that department. Perhaps they didn't expect Sindhu, Tai, and the top Thais and Japanese to show up or that just wasn't a good enough reason to interfere with Uber Cup training.

    Yes, I read that news but none of INA player to participate BAC, it's just a surprise. I know winning Thomas Cup is PBSI big target this year and Asian Games Gold as well beside World Champonships.

    well, they have to. BAC has changed its rules this year. At least 4 CBA MS players ranked higher than LD must withdraw, then LD is able to get into the draw. Also, all first stringer players need to prepare for TUC. But WSX is an exception. Look at the draw, WSX will meet all her possible WS2 opponents in the UC. It's also good for WSX's preparation for the UC, plus that she never win this title and most of CHN top WS players, from the past to now, have got the title.

    It is not true...actually we were planning to send quite a lot but Korean visa takes 5 working days plus 18 TH is Good Friday so most players after singapore could not apply on time..some went home on Friday and submitted on Monday and been told visas are ready by Tuesday..before that we did write to Korean Badminton Association to write letter to Korean Embassy and the reply was not favorable.....then the players went to NZ could not apply also before as NZ took 10 working days and we wrote to NZ badminton which promised to fast track the visas so we could apply Korean but again no reply at all...

    CBA did withdraw his players, basically if you rank 1-26, you must attend or pay $2000 fine if no medical certificate is given

    The problem with BaC that they should have planned at least 2 months ahead but been told nothing is sure especially after LYD case so we could not apply visa and tournaments on time..been told exactly after 1 month ...and we had players competing at Vietnam, Malaysia GPG then India visa,etc

    Thanks for sharing. Just curious, aren't all these professional players (not just from INA) carry long term visa (eg: yearly, may be?) for these countries (eg: China, Korea, etc...)? It doesn't make sense (to me) that these professional players have to apply for visa on per entry basis.

    i wonder how the fines of $2000 define for doubles players?

    $2000 x 2 players ?

    if one of the two players attend, still need to pay fines ?

    What's your source?

    LYB is looking forward to seeing LD's performance at BAC to decide whether to bring him to TC. He may also want to know why LD would withdraw.

    It's unfortunate that srikanth has to meet the badminton star in the first round itself.. Very very unlucky..

    Srikanth said in an interview about his first match against LinDan..

    “I played him two years back in Thailand. So I would be playing him for the second time. I am excited. We all know what a fantastic player he is. He just won the China Masters last week,”


    “I am just looking to enjoy the match. I will just go there and give my 100 per cent. The last match against Lee Chong Wei in Singapore boosted my confidence. I am playing well. In that match, I made a few mistakes only in the end so I ll try not to repeat those,”
