    The problem here is because Uncle LD is still playing and inadvertently depriving others to progress or a slot in some of the tournament that sets quotas but that's not Uncle LD's problem.

    Btw, is CL agreeable to the wild card or is it just his fans asking for it. It's interesting to hear CL's opinion.

    Xue Song retired? He is only 23, born in January 1994. Isn't he still recuperating from the meniscus injury sustained when he was playing against Momota in India last year?

    It's illogical to say the PSS/SS titles are more difficult to win than the WC/OG when the same top best players, the main contenders, are competing.

    We can only say the WC/OG - owing to its structure to include a wider range of players from various geographical areas for the sake of better representation and participation as befitting its title and purpose - makes it easier for the top contenders to get pass the early rounds where the weakest opponents are usually drawn to meet them. The final outcome is almost always the same handful of top players to emerge champions, with few exceptions.

    Since 2007, the WC/OG is either captured by Lin Dan or Chen Long, with LCW a multiple finalist, the only exception was Paris 2010 won by Chen Jin against Taufik Hidayat.

    A similar pattern emerges if you analyze the PSS/SS where more or less the handful of usual suspects, namely,LCW, Lin Dan, Chen Long, and a couple other near the top contenders, such as Kento Momota, J O Jorgensen, Viktor Axelsen. The rest can only hope to take the odd tournament when none of the Super Trio are participating.

    The most sought-after trophies, the most-coveted titles and prizes are always the ones for which all the best of the best aim for and prepare the most for as they aspire to mount the winners podium and wear the crown. The logic is simple: first, what is the tournament for as the title suggests ? Second, equally important, is its rarity or frequency. Third, I'd say, are the stakes involved, prize, reward, increase in status, sponsorship deal, and suchlike.

    For example, why is the WC worth more than any of the PSS/SS? Obviously, the World Champion status and its rarity, only once a year as compared with 12 PSS/SS of which 5 are premier and 7 normal.

    However, beginning next year, BWF is unveiling a new tournament structure where the highest Level 1 events will comprise the World Championships, the Olympics, and one signature season finale with the highest prize money of USD1.5 million up for grabs. Expect every player to go all out for these three events of the highest status and, as a result, making them the toughest tournaments to win.

    Shi Yuqi is 21, born 28 Feb 1996. Xue Song is 23, born 22 Jan 1994. Seriously, I don't think these two will retire anytime soon, definitely not SYQ who is one of the most promising next generation CHN MS.

    SYQ, Huang YX and QB are all very promising young men.

    It would be unfortunate if they have to retire this year or next, if they haven't in fact decided to retire already.

    Best of luck to them.

    Keep on topic please. Further off topic posts will be at risk of being 'retired'.

    Lol, I just have to post the last off-topic post at the risk of getting deleted. I love your puns on deleting off-topic posts. First "killing" posts in the TTY thread and here they are getting "retired". :D

    Well, it looks like Scotland has an eligible player of her own. Therefore, the wildcard can only come from BWF. BWF has until Friday, May 5 to decide whether to use it.

    BA's have until May 11 to inform BWF whether their eligible players will enter. May 18 is the official day for BWF to release the reserve list.

    Obviously, Chen Long will not Number 1 on the reserve list if not already in by then. Wonder which of Chen Long and Lee ChongWei is more anxious about the outcome.

    CL doesn't need a wildcard. He will go to Glasgow, someone will sacrifice for him.

    i believe you are referring to [3.2.4] regarding having 4 in the top 8.
    1. first you need to apply [2.1]: the maximum number...shall be four entries in each of the five events...
    2. next apply [3.1]: 64 ms players are eligible...
    3. the application of [3.2.4] means: if you happen to have more than 4 ranked in the top 8 (say 5 or 6 or 7 or even 8 players) you can choose any of the 4. you do not have to choose the top 4 of the 5/6/7 or 8 players you have in the top 8.
    if he drops below qiao bin (according to my calculations he will not) and china sends the 4 above him, he cannot receive a bwf wildcard because 4 is the limit. see [3.2.17]. china can decide not to send two or more above chen long, therefore making him automatically eligible because all federations can send up to 4 within the top 64, see [3.1].

    basically it's up to cba whether he plays or not.

    the ever changing regulations can be confusing.

    Lee Chong Wei because Chen Long already has a WC Title. The pressure is on LCW again.

    It's not as difficult as you make it out to be. Even if the opponents are the same in the latter stages of the tournament, the opponents in the first rounds at the WC and Olympics are easier making it overall easier to win (not much easier, but still, easier!). On route to the final every match makes a difference and if you play number 200 or something in the first round instead of some TOP 20 guy you will be fresher.
