    I'm personally kinda glad Gade isn't at the top anymore. He was up there too long

    Howe is it then possible that Gong Zhichao is nr.5???????????

    This is what I don't really understand the way China selects and sends their players to international competition. Gong Zichao has a very high capability to beat Camilla Martin for #1 if she was sent to international circuits more often. I'm personally sad that her ranking drops to #5.

    but that doesn't matter at all,
    cause most of the chinese girls are that outstanding
    (especially gong zichao),
    that they don't need to be seeded.
    As long as they don't have to play eachother too early,
    they'll all rush to the semifinals anyway.

    Seeded 5 means she's expected to reach at least the quarters.4 Chinese women are expected to reach the last 8.Just nice for them. Each will take on another from another country.
    Draw will be out any moment now & they shdn't pit players of the same country together if they can help it.
    So no prob. for Gong ZC .She'll have excellent chance of winning the title.

    The ranking system of IBF is so bizarre that nobody can really understand. I don't know, for example, why Marleve Manaky of INA (MS) is always in the top 10 though he has not played a good game for ages.

    I just take it as a matter of course.Didn't bother to find out how they derive the rankings weekly.
    Anyway they don't really reflect the relative playing strengths of the players.... but only a rough guide.

    i do wonder if gong zhichao and the rest of the chinese women's rankings weren't "fixed".

    is it coincidence that camilla martin - the only threat to china's dominance in womens singles - has been lined up for the championship draw to meet: dai yun in round 3, gong zhichao in q/f, gong ruina in s/f, zhou mi in finals?

    it's doubtful martin will even get past q/f

    i do not think they can totally' fix' it.
    maybe to some extent it is theoretically possible.
    so it is more a coincidence than anything else.
    the draw was done by the ibf which is an impartial body & the seeding is in accordance with the current world rankings .
    martin is ranked no. 1 in the world, so theoretically she could beat anyone.
    so the draw is in theory fair.

    theoretically. but we know the chinese can be no.1 if they wanted to... or whatever ranking they prefer. the ibf ranking system is so flawed that with a bit of maths and knowledge of the points setup, you can work out how many matches/tournaments to win to achieve a certain amount of points and hence a certain ranking.

    i was just curious, cos i wondered why gong zhichao and dai yun was hardly allowed to play any tournaments this year, when zhou mi seemed to play everything and got her ranking up to no2. there would be other factors of course, but this funny idea came to me. i didn't think much of it until i saw the w/c draw. "how convenient" i thought.

    not implying the chinese would go that far in planning. just saying it's not beyond them, with all the talent they got. and if they *did* aim for something like this, they seem to have got their wish. i'm not complaining. ;)
