BWF has been conducting trials about a possible switch to 11x5 from the present 21x3 format for quite some time. I remember there were a number of events in the past two years also which were played using 11x5 format. But, as of today, 21x3 is the main format which will be used in all the major tournaments.

It is somehow a big controversy in Indonesia, many citing lack of excitement in the 5x11 format. It is also not uncommon for Indonesian fans to say that this is Poul Erik Hoyer's agenda to make Europeans gain more advantage in badminton. :facepalm:

So today there is a big incident in China Open:

During the WD match between Japan's Matsutomo/Takahashi and China's Huang/Li, the umpire (which was also Chinese) denied a challenge even after the Japanese raised their hands immediately after it landed (and called "out"; which means Chinese players tied the match after winning 22-20 in the 2nd game). It sparked out complaints from Japanese players and coaches but the umpire ignored them, citing it is too late to use the Instant Review.

 

Umpire from the same country with players, BWF certainly needs to fix this issue...

 

Not long after that, another Chinese umpire also created problem because she couldn't communicate well with the English pairs (who complained a few times during the match). Man, this is a Superseries Premier !! :facepalm:

 

Btw, Denamrk's TV2 wrote this in their page " Det behøver ikke at være sværere at stoppe en brokr** " -> What does this mean @Agger :d

It would be something like:"it doesn't have to be harder than this to stop a loudmoutth (or a complaining person)
