Super Series Finals '13. Draw

Now after the draw yesterday, for the places in the poules, I can be playing around with the former results of players and pairs, the standings in the world rankings, the remembrance of their play, the estimation of their willing and being able to play full out.
It is interesting later on to see if ideas come true.
It's tricky, looking at rankings and earlier confrontations. Tiredness, personal plans, injuries, price-money, all are influencing the outcomes.
I think, this tournament is going to be a badminton feast. With unexpected wins and losses, and some beautiful matches. Some will be trying to finish first all out, others will play loose and therefore extra nice because their plans go not entirely together with those of the BWF, but they must play.

Here under possibilities of the progresses.
