    Ok so Both best Buddies PVS and CM get ousted by SJH..hmm Guess SJH has figured out that these two will play agressive and in their haste they will make errors..and thats probably what casted these two Champs their matches against her

    Keep in mind that PBL is more or less an exhibition level tournament. None of the top players are going to prepare or exert as much as they would for WC, OG, or any other major.

    But I wonder why does it seem to be the same sort of EXERTION by OG Gold And Silver Medalists in this EXHIBITION tournaments.For the best players in the planet to not give their Hundered percent when they are on court is just no apt..I think they are doing what they can to win these games.

    Besides I highly doubt the Richest WS player in the Planet and World tour Champ would participate just to Exhibit her shots and same for 3× W Champ ..Remember CM didnt participate in WTF yet the PBL is important for her thats why she has been playing in all 4 seasons.

    So PBL is more than an Exhibit series its about their teams and I see on court that they are giving their best that they can but may be with a different mindset

    Ofc they are putting in effort...it’s just commensurate to the significance of the tournament, which as mentioned, is not that high.

    An important element in war (or any competitive situation) is the element of surprise. How many tournaments did CM crash out of last year before showing up at WC and steamrolling everyone unexpectedly.

    I dont think anyone could be SUPRISED to see an Olympic Medalist winning WC..its anything but natural so She didnt streamrolled any of the true badminton fans who follow badminton.

    Cause an Olympic Medalist can never be Ruled out same for LXR she is a former OG gold medalist and if she wins another OG medal it wouldnt surprise anyone because her record speaks better for herself.

    So Top Players in the world winnin biggest tittles of the World is nothing but NORMAL.
