    LOL, then there'll be a lot of upset people.:p:p We follow World Ranking to avoid arguements (as has already happened many times). As re-stated by Robin7 ( we already covered this in every tournament), the 3 criteria.

    I've added WR difference of 5 & above whenever i do it AND as far as i recall, the those listed so far for this CO2 is WR difference of minimum 5.

    Other than that, you all debate to your heart's content, hopefully not until thread close.:D:D

    Hiyaaa, Robin7, you dunno our Limsy kah, talk about baddy he can stay awake whole nite, LOL.

    Errrrr, Zhang Yawen/ZTT lower ranked than WPT/CEH cos new partnership.

    First, let me just say I have high regards for hcyong and ye333's inputs.They always add value and substance to the discussion.Suggestions should be welcome although there's no need to take them up.
    I do realise it's a lot of work scouring the WR data esp when BWF is not the most user-friendly.
    Here's an idea to get the list done without BWF and with less work:
    Just use the PAW data.
    Anytime the bigger PAW win would be considered an upset.So today, LD's win over LCW is an upset.

    agree, they have become consistent after OG defeat.is like they come out of nowhere after OG to reach their 1st SS final in JO n then win d DO title.haha.hmm i x not consider their defeat as an upset cos chn pair is actually not lowly ranked.only that they are newly paired.haha.btw, ceh/wpt no3 nx week. i tot they will be no 2

    1) Then how about earlier rounds when MD, WD, XD are not played in PAW?? or Same points. Still need to search, so might as well search all.

    2) LOL, they dont realise the efforts that has gone out to make it the list acceptable (but didnt work). LD (WR#2) beating LCW(WR#1) is minor upset, just 1 WR, may or may not be considered (hehe, up to robin, his turn this time). To be consistent, have to use same principle .

    3) We still have to search & put in the WR as part of the data (limsy & I would but no obligations of course ;):p:p). Paw doesnt state the WR, it is not clear . Then there'll be questions of "DOnt think this is an upset, so & so is lower ranked" - just happened in this thread.

    It may also be lower seed beat higher seed but in WR it's the other way around, so not upset (example : PG vs Taufik, France 2008)

    Good points. Really, since you all are doing the work unpaid, then you be the boss.
