    In the Badminton Queens list, Saina's the only player without alliteration.

    Professional Badminton players are very hard-working indeed. They are willing to play in end of year till January. When are these guys having a break? It better be a big payday for the champion.
    No wonder Saina is critical of BWF new rule instructing top players to enter 12 events in 2018.

    Well playing in this League might earn you more money than you make by winning SSP... So, of course the interest is high...

    If you include Thomas Cup/Uber Cup, Asian Games, Common Wealth Games, World Championships, Senior National Badminton Championships
    and PBL it becomes 18 tournaments for 2018! Indian players will either have to pay the fine or pull out on below par fitness levels. :)
