    Now, 6 SS, out of 12 in total, have past,

    If no injuries to any body, then

    Chen Jin, Lin Dan, Bao CL, Chen Yu will be sure to be able to play the SS final. I give them all 100%.

    Gade and Lee CW should have no problem, should have 90% at least.

    Sony have some advantage, but only 60% chance.

    Jonassen: 55%

    Ponsana: 50%

    Simon: 20%

    Chen Hong: 20%

    Sato: 10%

    Hafiz: 5%

    all the other players (including Taufik): 0% (Theorectial impossible already)

    On the WS:

    Zhu Lin, Xu HW, Zhang N, Xie XF, Wang Chen: 100%

    Pi HY, Lu Lan: 90%

    Petya N: 50%

    Hirose: 40%

    Wong MC: 17%

    Yao Jie: 13%

    Zhou Mi (probably still one of the best) and all the others: 0%

    You were pretty harsh on Chen Hong. He's currently the world number #2, I think he will make it to the super series final. But heh you're such a China fan :cool:.

    I haven't done the maths, but if you look at the current Super Series rankings (http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/ranking/ranking.aspx?rid=32) then Chen Hong isn't even in the top 10 so maybe that's why 2cents only gave him 20%. Also only two representatives from each country are allowed to qualify for the final and 4 of his countrymen are ahead of him this will further reduce his chances. In fact it's therefore not really possible to give Lin Dan, Chen Jin, Chen Yu and Bao Chunlai all 100% as 2cents said, similarly for the women's singles

    All my calculations were based on the current points plus player's potential in the rest of the year. I didn't know there were quotas for each country. I thought super series would treat all players equally.

    To make into the final 8 by the end of the year, a total points of 50,000-52,000 are needed. Chen Hong still has some chances if he can repeat what he did last year won back to back 6 star tournaments (China open and Denmark open). But for Taufik, since he needs almost 40,000 points, which means he needs to be in all the semifinals and even more in the rest 6 SS. It is obviously impossible for him.

    My calculations are purely based on facts and I'm transparent to their nationality. The reason why I put 4 Chinese players as 100%, because they are the top 4 in the ranking list and far better than all the others, while Chen Hong is now ranked 15th, far below other top 4 Chinese MS. Besides, 3 of the rest SS will be in China, which are used to be dominated by Chinese players. Therefore, it is hard to believe those top 4 will not be qualified.

    But since China politics is always unstable, so does their national team, if Li YB or management level decide to disallow someone playing anymore, then that player's career could be ended at any minute.

    About Super Series​


    Badminton World Federation​


    Over the last decade or so, the Badminton World Federation (formerly known as the International Badminton Federation) has embarked on a series of changes that is slowly but surely giving the sport the recognition it truly deserves.

    The introduction of the Super Series is just one of the major steps that the BWF hopes would generate more interest around the world.

    The Super Series will consist of twelve Open events, which will each offer a minimum of US$ 200,000 in prize money. These will serve as the qualifiers for the season ending Super Series Finals.

    The Finals itself will be the richest ever badminton tournament to be staged, offering a staggering US$ 500,000 in prize money for the first year.

    The Proton Malaysian Open will be opening leg of the Super Series. Korea, England, Switzerland, Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, Denmark, France and Hong Kong will each host one leg of the Super Series with China being given the right to host two legs.

    Only the top eight singles and top eight pairs in each category would qualify for the Finals. However, only a maximum of two players per country would qualify for the Finals.

    The BWF, in its effort to make the Series more exciting, has also restricted the number of entries for each category in the twelve events to just 32, of which only four will come from qualifiers.

    To further add to the excitement, BWF has also decided to do away with the national separation ruling in all the Super Series events. This means that two players from the same country can meet as early as the first round.

    There will also be an increased television coverage worldwide, with each host required to guarantee the live telecast of the semi-final and finals.

    In addition, Sports Media Promotions, who are the marketing agents for the Super Series, has made a deal with IEC in Sports to produce 36 episodes of the World of Badminton half hour programme that will be telecast in major markets throughout the world.

    The Super Series is certainly going to elevate the profile of badminton to a more deserving status.

    thank cxytdn for pointing that only 2 players per county. I haven't read the rules yet.

    But it is so unfair. WBF claims that county will not be an issue any more in super series, which means treat every player equally regardless their country. But in fact, what they want is just let Chinese fight Chinese in the first round, and in the SS final, even the top 3,4,5 cannot get qualified. Currently, there are 5 Chinese players in the top 8 world ranking. It is unfair for those Chinese players.

    I feel that WBF rules are almost trying to contain Chinese players. There is no such rule in snooker. There are all Brits in the snooker grand prix final except one Chinese and one Australian.

    That's the reason badminton can never got popular. People cannot trust the champions, there are more equally good players not in the tournaments.

    Total dominant of CHN Players in badminton is not healthy for this sports !!
    WBF is doing the right thing ! IF a singled country keeps on dominant .. The sports events are in dangered of excluded for a event to compete in OG !
    If badminton needs to be popular & displaced Tennis as no.1 racket sports in the world.. We needs to see more country to challenge CHN in the future.. As frm now only INA/MAS/KOR/DEN/ENG.. Less Than 10 countries are capable for doing that.. How this sports can become popular in the world??
