If PBSI reason not to send the women players is efficiency and the women will not play for Uber final, its like very unbelievable reason. They send 4 XD and 4 MD pairs. Why? There would be no XD in THomas Cup and we only need maximum 3 MD in Thomas Cup. What they should do is send 3 XD and 3 MD. So the extra 4 people , they can send 2 WS and 1 WD. Or maybe 2 XD and 3 MD, 2 ws and 2 WD and save the cost of 2 extra people. It will be equal and efficient in my opinion.
