So you are saying Chinese players are not "good soldiers"? Seriously, if team China is "exhausted" due to OG, who is not? if TH came because of sponsor pressure, why did MK/HS come? Why did JJS/LYD come? Why did PG come? They all attended OG, didn't they? The key is still that this SSF is a meaningless tournament. It's meaningful at the individual level, thanks to the big money, but it's meaningless at the country/team level, and country/team is the boss in China. Say it this way. Teams chose to do their "winter training" instead of attending SSF shows exactly that this SSF is not important to them. Otherwise they would change their training schedule. Do you ever see a European soccer club skip UEFA Champion League because its players are too tired to perform at their best?
