    I told you so they will ATP1000 kind of points.

    The only different is they should make the points the same from 2019 onwards reflecting 1000 750 500.

    These are the main reasons why Kidambi is not even at first place. 1st and 2nd rank points should be further apart. 1800 or so dont do justice heck even prize money are double the difference.

    I like the website though. They kinda make it like Formula1. They should link the website with bwfbadminton.com though. and have more pictures of the Iconic arenas

    The names seem uninspired to be honest. Not that Superseries was more inspired.

    To be frank, "uninspired" doesn't even come close. It's god awful. To think that some advertising agency took months to come up with this nonsense and probably even made a sizeable buck from it, is infuriating. Super Series vs Super Series Premier also wasn't particularly ingenious, but at least there was a clear distinction between SS and GP level. 750 or 500? Who's going to care about that?

    Two spectators in the stands:

    Kid: "Dad, is this a Super 750 tournament or a Super 500 tournament?"
    Dad: I don't really know, son. Let me check. [Dad browses the tournament leaflet]
    Dad: "Ah, it says it's a Super 500."
    Kid [sulky]: Owww, shux. I wish it was a Super 750."
    Dad: Don't be so picky, son. At least it's not a Super 300. That doesn't really sound all that super to me."

    Anything with a number like 500/1000 makes it sound cheap.
    Honestly, World Tour is actually not bad.

    Yeah Maybe name is not good..

    But most important is can this name attract businesses to pour money in?

    As players, I wouldnt really care about 1000/500. I can always choose to see it as SSP or SS its up to me ( if i'm player) plus i only play for money.

    So most likely guangzhou it is?

    IMO, they can always change the name to SS(P) in 2019.

    Actually rather than renaming the level names like the ATP World Tour, for me they just need to name a new level for Level 2 then rename SS and SSP since the Superseries brand has been discontinued.

    Once, Lin Dan retires, I am quitting every connection with this sport. Terrible Terrible Terrible Organization , this BWF is.

    Has taken this sport to the absolutely rock bottom.

    Yesterday the new BWF website released the whole World Tour tournament locations map and the World Tour Finals' location is clearly located at Guangzhou there (near Macau and Hong Kong).

    BWF's plan is today to make an official announcement of the new names per level and the host for World Tour Finals. But somehow it's leaked to the public from the website http://bwfworldtour.com/ and now the website got locked by password.

    All good players retiring due to the wicked Olympic quota.

    Absolutely shameless Year end finale selection criteria.

    A Federation who looks forward to changing the scoring system at every possible opportunity.

    A Federation who tries it's hardest to become a cheap rip-off of tennis.

    HSBC became the main sponsor.

    The MOST irony thing is they want to change SS but why they still include 'SUPER (series??)' word? At worst they should just name it BWF1000, I dont need you to tell me its Super. It has been Super for the last 11 years.

    China Indonesia AllEngland should have been BWF Elite.. and the rest of the tours should just be BWF1000. Too bad there is too far prize money differenxe that they cant make the same name. In tennis there are 9 ATP1000 events, might as well follow the same number of tours since bwf already copied it anyway.

    Dubai is such good place.

    A pity and step backward it has to go to China.

    When i think of TianHe i think of Xu Chen with that smashing motion when they were 20-18 against AhmadNatsir. still laughing hard when i think of that these days.

    But yeah its scary stadium, its tiger den. not many can come out alive.
