    But the draw was already made:

    I just hope it doesn't become an English National's situation, where scores were updated rather slowly (and no live score)! I think that was due to a technical problem.

    I guess it will go up soon, as the All England site links to Tournament Software to display the latest scores.

    There is no redraw.
    Give Saina relatively easier path to final in WS.


    Thomas/Kamilla withdrew. Seems Thomas Laybourn is still injured. Poor him.
    Nice for Nova/Vita, but harder path for them. In first round, should meet Polish XD

    Commentators for the AE

    It is hoped that the commentators for the 101 edition of the AE tournament are Gill Clark and Iain Wright.
    They were former players and they know the history of badminton and its technical aspects.
    They also know about the players, their winnings and losses and they are armed with lots of statistics. Their pronunciation is exceptional, even with Chinese, Indonesian and Thai names.
    I agree with what was said about the quality of the commentary of the 2011 German Open.

    That is a first I believe ...

    But since this is a Super Series, unlike German, she will probably be one.

    I am so happy that Nova/Vita got promoted to the qualification list... It is such a pity that Nova/Vita will likely to meet the fourth seed.
    Also for Kido/Lita should advance to the main draw and meet the Dane#2.
    I hope they can fight in the early rounds as their paths are relatively easier compare with those in the other draw.

    Harder than not playing at all? Harder for their russian opponents you mean! Imagine originally drawn against the very much beatable japanese pair of Hashimoto/Fujii and now facing them instead!? :eek:
    Polish pair also not on form it seems ...

    Bad draw.. If Firda and April can beat their opponents respectively,they should fight each other to book one ticket to main draw.. Good luck for all INA players!
