If there's a chance that you would avoid playing  your compatriots, would you take the chance and play to lose?
Do you think that the group system doesn’t work?

Two of of Chinese badminton players were accused of playing to lose.
The farcical scenes came in a women’s doubles match between Chinese top seeds Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang and South Korean pair Jung Kyung-eun and Kim Ha-na.
All four players were booed off after consistently appearing to deliberately serve into the net or hit wide.
The longest rally in the first game was just four strokes, and match referee Thorsten Berg came on to court at one point to warn the players.

Booed off: Ha Na Kim (L) and Kyung Eun Jung (R) of South Korea
Michael Regan
  

Both pairs had already qualified for the last 16 from their group – and their actions are sure to spark debate about the decision to introduce a group stage rather than straight knockout format.
The Korean pair won the match 21-14 21-11.
By losing the match the Chinese pair now cannot play their compatriots and second seeds Tian Qing and Zhao Yunlei.
