this long team event is finally over. scientific speaking, Sudirman cup is more interesting than Thomas cup and Uber cup, because all 5 categories are equal. While in Thomas cup and Uber cup, the 1st single victory weights the same as the 3rd single, also the same as the 2nd double as well. That's totally unfair. But still, after all the dust down, we still don't know who's the best in the world? Team China? well badminton is not a team event. You can play yourself, or at most with just 1 partner. so we still don't know who's the best in the world? say, in women's singles. although WSX, WX WYH (3 Wangs) are occuping all top 3 in the ranking, also took away most titles in daily events. But this Sudirman cup did nothing, but confused us. Look at the facts: (< stands for lost to while > means won against) Wang SX < Schenk Wang X < Nehwal S Nehwal S < Inthanon R Inthanon > Cheng SC Schenk > Hirose E Hirose E > Firdassari A there we have these 3 lines: Inthanon > Nehwal > Wang X Schenk > Wang SX Schenk > Hirose > Firdassari ... wow! the WS performance is totally, exactly incoherent with the final standing for the Sudirman cup. The invincible Inthanon and Schenk, won directly or indirectly all the others, finally made their teams lost in the first round of the rubin round. while Hirose, she's better than Firdassari but inferior to Schenk, Hirose's team Japan, entered the elimination, but lost in the 1st round. exactly like Hirose, Newhal's team ended the same. The 2nd worst Firdassari's team got to the final 4 The worst Wangs' team was finally crowned as the champion.
