    Chen Jin can request for a month holiday now that he has his slot confirmed in London....what a joker..immediately rush back to China after Peter Gade had lost.

    However, on the side note Chen Jin's withdrawal has removed Ajay Jayaram from the qualifying list, who actually has the potential to cause upset in the Olympics. So it's clever move by China once again, they now must gather all the list of players who have unofficially qualified and studied their games to be upset-resistant.

    Though CJ journey to Olympic help by his teammates. (Specially when LD retired so many times against him) but his win in Australia GP and Swiss Open are all by his effort alone. he did not play against any of his team mates in those events and had to win by his own efforts alone.

    Meanwhile Peter gade did not had good results in 2012. Lose to lots of players he should not lost. sadly to say, his age really is catching up to him now. . The worst had to lost to Sweden player in European championship recently.

    LOL, indeed. CBA really does not know how to conceal their actions. Like seriously... Just play the match out. Do they really think BWF is that stupid to believe he gave walkover to kashyap because he was ACTUALLY INJURED ??

    It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out what they are doing... atleast make it look like you are interested in winning the tournament... OMG. One word ... "CHEN JIN"

    What does CHEN JIN like to do so much during his free time that he needs to skip the quarters of a Super Series tournament ???? It must be either VIDEO GAMES or GAMBLING from his childish behavior, LOL

    You do not get it do you....the walkover has also changed the ranking table a little bit and also eliminated Ajay Jayaram from the Olympics. It's very ingenius move from China to do it, Ajay is a far more dangerous player who could actually cause upset. Meanwhile, Kashyap...welll needless to comment any further.

    In short, smart move by China for eliminating loose ends.

    I see what your saying... but Kashyap did well in semis , losing by a whisker to Shon Wan Ho who beat LCW by a similar scoreline. This means that Kashyap is capable of performing to the same level of LCW, since they both lost to Shon Wan Ho by a similar scoreline in the same tournament.

    the latest qualification list shown that India has 9 MS eligible for London.
    Its up to their selection committee to pick whoever they wanted to represent them

    Anybody who plays sport sees the inherent flaw in this kind of thinking.

    I dont think CBA thought about IND MS in their thinking of Walk Over.

    CJ is fragile, once they knew PG had lost he had qualified and no point wasting energy to play any more. He can rest for TC/OG now.

    That logic is slightly flawed....by that you would say SWH is better than LCW, so every player who ever beat him would also be better than LCW....just face it, Kashyap Parupalli is no danger to anyone in the top 4, and probably no one in the top 8. He performed well in his home tournament, but when it counts (in the OG), everyone is going to bring their A game and then SWH won't be able to get a game off LCW, just like Kashyap won't be able to get to the Semis.

    Concerning CJ's hasty departure - it was mentioned earlier that the India Open were interrupting China's Olympic preparation, so he didn't want to waste any more time and get back to it. Playing a show match would have cost him another day and maybe risked upsetting his injury. The qualifying for the Olympics was all he wanted to achieve in India, and with Peter's loss, that was done.

    I'm not saying I like what he/China did, though. I hate the obvious match fixing and that CJ seemingly didn't deem KP and the crowd worthy of another match, if he didn't want to risk injury he could've played cautiously. Gifting the match away would still show a lack of sportsmanship, but would be better than skipping it alltogether in my eyes.
