Lee: BWF shouldn’t force top players to play more tourneys

Up in arms: Lee Chong Wei is against BWF

KUALA LUMPUR: The World Badminton Federation (BWF) have made it compulsory for the top 15 singles players to play in 12 Open tournaments in a year – but it doesn’t sound like a smashing idea for the top players.

World No. 2 men’s singles shuttler Lee Chong Wei said the world body should not force the top players to bite off more than they can chew.
