    Hi all,

    Just watching the presentation on worldbadminton.net for the pairings and it appears Sigit is to play with Tri Kush. He isn't the best of players and i kind of feel sorry for Sigit actually. However, they are seeded? What's other peoples views on this pairing?

    Yoo has an elbow injury. that's why he didn't play at the world championship.
    i'm surprise that they split the pair candra/sigit
    is it the indonesian coach who decides this? or both player don't want to play together after they have lost wc finale?

    I have some definate views on the seedings in the men's doubles.

    Like what is going on!!???????????

    you got sigit/Tri kus seeded - where's their world ranking?
    Fu/Cai seeded - they are below Chan/Chew and a HK pair.

    :confused: :confused:

    That is very odd indeed. If the IBF "notional ranking" had been used for Sigit/Tri Kus, they would get a world ranking of about 30... Way below other unseeded pairs.

    I wonder what the explanation is for this.

    Yeah. And Chen Qiqiu and Cheng Rui are seeded too. Their rankings are below Njoto/Liu of HK.

    Seeding ranking is used to decide the seeds, not World Ranking!!

    This explains why the seeds aren't ranked in the same order as the world ranking...

    For new pairs, notional ranking is used for the seeds...

    All the explanations are in the IBF's PDF document about the world ranking's system!

    The whole Danish team, including their newly crowned men's doubles world champion Lars Paaske-Jonas Rasmussen, are the notable absentees in the competition, which will be held from Aug 25-31 in Batam Island.

    In the wake of the terrorist bombing incident in Jakarta, most foreign government have issued travel warnings against going to the country. And the Danish badminton body have decided to heed their government's advice and stopped their shuttlers from heading to Indonesia after competing in the Singapore Open from Aug 18 to 24.

    The Indonesia Open is the second of the back-to-back South-East Asian meets to offer ranking points for Olympic qualification. Besides Paaske-Rasmussen, Denmark have three other doubles pairs in world number one Jens Eriksen-Martin Lundgaard, Mathias Boe-Michael Lamp, Michael Sogaard and Jim Laugesen.

    Their absence will be a boost to the top Malaysian doubles pairs of Chong Ming-Choon Eng and Tan Fook-Wan Wah's hopes of making amends for their below par performance in the World Championships in Birmingham last month.

    Aha, they still use the time reduction principle for tournament seedings... That would explain a lot!

    Thanks for clearing that out, Seven.
