Notional Rankings = Present Rankings taking into account the last 52 weeks performance. 

Race to Tokyo Rankings = Rankings taking into account only the tournaments which will be part of Rankings at end of qualification procedure. 

 

On April 30 2020, both rankings will be same.

I have seen many players complain about the compulsory participation rule in couple of years.

The World Tour is a mess because BWF is neglecting players more in order to please the sponsors

Yeah they just want to maximize their income through sponsorship. They are not worried about players.

The Badminton World Federation (BWF) can confirm men’s singles world No.1 Kento Momota was involved in a motor vehicle accident in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Monday morning. 

Momota sustained multiple laceration wounds to the face plus right maxillary sinus and nasal bone fracture and was taken to Putrajaya Hospital for treatment. He is in a stable condition.

The driver of the vehicle was killed. 

Three others were involved – Japan team assistant coach, Hirayama Yu; team physiotherapist Morimoto Akifumi; and Hawkeye system operator, William Thomas.

All three are in a stable condition. A BWF manager has been at the hospital throughout the morning to provide assistance to all parties involved.
