    Anup Sridhar Out

    India's highest ranked player has pulled out.
    Apparently, his injured ankle has not healed fully.

    There's more here
    The India Open is surely poorer by his absence.

    I agree that as badminton fans we would like to see the game being popularized elsewhere, especially in the bigger countries where we hope the participation rate will increase and the game become more popular and not perceived as a backyard sport. This will encourage the sponsors to put in more money to develop the game much further.

    I'm sure this has been one of the major goals of the former IBF and the current BWF and membership to the world badminton body must have increased during all these years.

    Yet, some of the older and supposedly economically more powerful members have not been able to help BWF achieve its goals. Instead they sort of become a burden as they were unable to come up with the required prize monies to stage more attractive tournaments like the SS. These are the members that should have a management overhaul and a leadership shakeup to bring their own National Badminton Associations up to par with their more successful counterparts, many of which are located in Asia.

    To penalize countries who have contributed to the success of IBF/BWF activities in the past and the present SS, just because of their "perceived" smaller market size because of a smaller population, etc, without taking into consideration other positive factors like location, management ability, good media and TV coverage and facilities, the usage of modern technolgy including scoring softwares and live scores, transparency, unbiased officiating, ability to secure good sponsorship, ability to attract good attendance, etc, etc, is myopic, shortsighted and does not bode well for the future.

    Instead, the BWF should concentrate on expanding the SS and giving deserving badminton professionals more opportunities to display their skills and to earn more prize money.

    Small countries like Singapore may be perceived as having a small market but one should not forget that the disposable income of Singapore is higher than many of its neighbours.
