    Two days before the Sudirman Cup starts. :)

    Not only will it be interesting to see whether China will regain the title, but also
    on the scoring debate it is interesting to see the results of saturday morning's meeting. I think the International Badminton Federation are likely to revert back to the old scoring format for the doubles events - both mixed and women.

    On the first day we see the matches
    Denmark - England and Korea - Sweden. Should be easy victories for Denmark & Korea, normally.

    Who of you will also be present at the Sudirman Cup?

    - Mark.

    Anywhere in the world televising the matches? I think Star Sports have given priority to Rugby:(

    I'm hoping Supersports may at least give a delayed telecast, since it

    is being recorded for Daniash TV.

    I think it will clash with Formula 1 and also the usual Football

    which here is a multi-million industry in betting stakes.

    Saad news. For first time in many years no live telecast of

    Sudirman Cup.By Supersports or Starsports.

    Maybe only highlights a week later if at all.

    Recession must really be biting hard.

    Except for Denmark, all of us might end up

    buying the IBF highlight videos.

    Right, this is what the average person in Msia looks forward to every

    weekend and puts his money where his mouth is.

    Lack of TV coverage is now worldwide except for Europe.
