Sometimes, it's not for LCW to choose, his coach, BAM, decides the tourneys he goes to. Haha, it's not blaming lack of training, he's just playing safe, smart way of answering the media, esp unforgiving Msia media. If not, lose that time, kena teruk2, must answer to Sports Minister lah,NSC DIrector lah etc,etc. He has contractual obligations. One is to Yonex, the other Proton. I think all Yonex sponsored events they must appear. Example : one time LCW wanted to skip one of the local circuits to prepare for Japan SS or sthing like that but had to go as it's Proton sponsored (unless have good reason like sick, injured, family emergency). Anyway, for International tourneys, PG also go for many tourneys & he's 33. The rest of the Msia gang also going for 3 or 4 tourneys in a row this round, nothing unusual.
