    was there , working for the recently concluded asian games.

    if what ants says is true - its a most interesting choice. most likely the aspire sports city hall will again be the venue, not a regular badminton venue but from the reaction of few of the players who were there, they were pretty happy with the facilities.

    though one must remember that the schedule was affected due to a leaking roof due to rains in doha which caught us all by suprise.

    nice to badminton coming to the middle east........

    It is strange that now entering August, the final venue has yet to be made known officially. I mean this is the inaugural year of the Super Series, you would imagine BWF would to end the first year with a big bang with a good show in the SS Final. To do that you need promotion, marketing etc etc and you can't do that with too little time left, especially for the host and organising committee.

    Given the SS final is scheduled immediately after the SEA Game held in Bangkok, where the power house of Malaysia and Indonesia, and to some extent the Thailand and Singapore players, will be fighting for the regional glory, their top players will play for sure. If the SS Final venue is far off, it may be disadvantage to these players.

    The earlier BWF annouces the venue, the better the preparation will be for the organising committee as well as the players.

    Chinese players will not go to play because of the BWF's "only a maximum of two players per country would qualify for the Finals."

    Really? Chinese players will lose a lot of money..I am sure Chen Hong will go...Hope CHN will not do that....

    Honestly I do not like Dubai....too hot there...I have not been there in the last 5 yrs I have to admit....It is not exciting destination spot....just to go there to watch badminton.....
