    does anyone know where to check the draw for the 2006 US Open? I believe it is supposed to start in 10 days .... so i guess the draw should be out by now.

    Talking about US Open. There was a blooper when some of the Pros were asked by the Media People weather they are joining the US OPEN.. guess what was the players answer? What US Open? Is there US Open?
    The media men were shocked. They were thinking weather they got their info wrong ( No Such Open ) or the players blur. It was really funny looking at the reaction from both sides.

    The 2006 U.S. Open Draw is up..

    ..here is the draw, i guess it just came out....
    Not much big names, but it has some pretty interesting participants..Among the well known players, the Asuncions siblings are here...Along with MS top seed Yousuke Nakanishi..Hmm, the duo of Mona Santoso and Angeline de Pauw(bottom half) are participating- personally, i'm looking fw to both of them cranking it out..And on the top half, the local duo of Grace and Johanna are playing as well..I'm looking for a rematch between those 4..:cool:
    And as usual Tony, and now Halim partnering is joining the festivities:cool:...With Howard Bach and Bob M. pairing in the upper half, i wouldn't be surprise to see those 4 in the Finals..it should be a fun one to follow..;) :cool:
    BTW, i noticed the name Chandra(from INA), who will be playing MS, MD and XD..does anyone know who he is??harimau, do you know??..:rolleyes:

    Just real quickly reviewed the draw and as usual, I question some of the seedings, or there lackof:

    Grace Peng and Johannah Lee are not seeded in WD.

    Lili Zhou is not seeded in WS. Mona Santoso is not seeded either and COINCIDENTALLY, Mona is playing Lili in the 1st Round. :rolleyes:

    Howard Bach and Bob Malaythong are not seeded, yet Dean Schoppe and Matt Fogarty are seeded 3/4 (no offense to them, nice guys :)).

    Nick Jinadasa plays the # 1 seed in the 1st Round in the MS. :rolleyes:

    XD field

    ..Whoah, the XD field looks like the most fun and entertaining. Check this out:
    Halim H. & Angeline De Pauw
    Tony G. & Minarti Timur :eek: ...:cool: Too bad though, as they will most likely meet each other at the SF, if they get that far..If they meet, wow, it's gonna be almost like the Final..But i will make an early prediction that Tony & Minarti will be the winner, but who knows;):p
    Plus a lot of other very good combination pairs...surprised not to see Grace playing XD..oh my, this looks like a pretty nice treat..;) :cool:

    !!!! ARE you serious!!! Maybe he will come to the exhibition in Calgary in september too1! :D:D

    Rofl - Kyle is playing Chandra... ouch! Could Kyle pull the win out?! I sure hope so! I train with Kyle during the Canadian season! Hes in ridiculously good shape haha, but very unflexible so I think it takes him more effort to move

    BTW how old is Bob Malyathong?

    I guess Chandra is Djarum and former Pelatnas Player who retired this year. He partnered with Frans Kurniawan were recruited in Pelatnas early 2005, Frans still in Pelatnas and paired with Rendra Wijaya now.

    He is not the Chandra Wijaya. His name is only CHandra; yup he was an ex pelatnas who resigned or dismissed from there last year. I saw him played against Ety and some older guys at OCBC on SAT; it was a good for fun only. But later on that same day, he also picked up some double game with TONY G, HALIM H, and HOWARD BACH and they also switched around pairing with different player among them all. But he does nt look too sharp among the four he might be the weakest one. I hope he does nt still have jet lag or what ever.

    How abt the 2 INA gals, Mona and Angie?? are they there already??..
    oh, btw, i saw another player named Li Li Wang, playing under the INA flag??..do you know who she might be?? cos i've never heard of her before, at least playing for INA??..:rolleyes:

    Jet lag or nervousness??..

    ..could be true...but, could be a case of nervous jitters also; you know, playing against the current MD World Champions..hehe:p;)...besides, i think other than Chandra, those other 3 players are a bit older than him..:rolleyes:

    I just saw Minarti Timur and the other Indonesians at the Asuncion Badminton Center yesterday. No idea why their still here in the Philippines. :confused: Are they joining or not?

    Lili Wang is a Chinese player who married an Indonesian player, Tek Ming. They're currently based in the Philippines. :)
