    The 2012 Korea Open SSP Round 1 matches.

    I was quite happy that many TPE and HKG players have qualified from the Qualification Rounds. Unfortunately, none of the INA qualifiers could make it into the Main Draws.

    To follow the players in the Main Draw, we have;

    Greysia's injure still not 100% yet. But i still hope they can progress to QF. They really need more points now as Greysia's injure really affecting their perfomance!

    Some matches to look forward to:
    • MD - CB/GZD v Markis/Hendra. Oh, how the mighty once INA pair has regressed.
    • WD - Jwala/Ashwini v Hoo/Woon. Two evenly matched pairs with the former more established and the latter knocking hard at the door
    • WS - Schenk v LX. Intriguing. Can the hardworking German blunt the CHN youngster?
    • MS - NTM v Tago. Should be a close, lung-bursting, drawn-out encounter.

    To be continued

    More matches to look forward to:
    • WD - Mel/Greys v Ng sisters. INA v MAS has always been fun to watch. The off-form but higher ranked INA pair will have all they can handle with the independent MAS duo.
    • MS - Boonsak v WZM. Both have been off colour of late. An excellent for one of them to get their motor running.
    • XD - Chan/Goh v Diju/Jwala. Inconsistent but evenly matched pairs will fancy the opportunity to pick up valuable ranking points.
    • WS - Michelle Li v Tine. Will the up and coming Michelle learn from their last encounter when Tine taught her a good lesson?
    • WS - BYJ v WX. As good a time as any for them patriotic line judges to make an appearance.
    • WS - TTY v SJH. The return of the Tai-phoon will be eagerly anticipated.

    I had a great sleep last night after HY dispatched of Firda and Sindhu in the qualifiers.

    She has a winnable match against the powerful Petya to have the pleasure of facing WYH in R2. I'll be happy enough if this happens.

    Adcock/Bankier getting everything back. Zhang/Zhao seem a little lackadaisical in their play so far.

    Bad draws for INA players/pairs will mean most will be eliminated today. INA might only have 2 representatives in MS, 3 in MD, 1 in WD, and 1 in XD by tomorrow.

    MS R32
    Simon Santoso
    [8] vs Kazushi Yamada - despite his injury, I still expect Simon to progress.

    Taufik Hidayat vs Rajiv Ouseph - should be a manageable tie for Taufik. He has a chance to win 6050 pts here as Simon is still not fully fit yet.

    Tommy Sugiarto vs Sho Sasaki [6] - it will represent a progress if Tommy can beat the much-improved Sho.

    Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka vs Jan O Jorgensen - might be exit door yet again for Hayom against the recently crowned Copenhagen Masters champion.

    MD R32
    Chai Biao/Guo Zhendong
    [7] vs Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan - Kido/Hendra need to win this and progress to QF to salvage any remaining hopes of an Olympic qualification. Failure to secure 6,050 pts this week will seriously hamper their progress. But I still think they are not fit enough.

    Bona Septano/Mohd Ahsan [6] vs Naoki Kawamae/Shoji Sato - Bona/Ahsan should take this one.

    Liao Min Chun/Wu Chun Wei vs Angga Pratama/Rian Agung Saputro - high hope is placed on Rian/Angga to climb to the top 15 or even higher by this year.

    Chen Hung Ling/Lin Yu Lang vs Hendra A. Gunawan/Alvent Yulianto Chandra - AG/Alvent to take this.

    WD R32
    Meiliana Jauhari/Greysia Polii
    [8] vs Ng Hui Lin/Ng Hui Ern - Grace's injury has seriously affected this pair's performance over the past 4 months. The draw is reasonably kind to them and they need a QF finish this week.

    Vita Marissa/Nadya Melati vs Reika Kakiiwa/Mizuki Fujii [3] - I don't think Vita/Nadya can repeat their victory over the Japanese pair in the INA SSP last year.

    Nitya Krishinda Maheswari/Anneke Feinya Agustine vs Tian Qing/Zhao Yunlei [2] - tough luck for Nitya/Feinya. Any scores above 16 in both sets will be a good outcome for them.

    XD R32
    Mohd Rijal/Debby Susanto vs He Hanbin/Bao Yixin - it will be a nice surprise if Rijal/Debby can beat the CHN pair.

    Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir
    [4] vs Michael Fuchs/Birgit Michels - Towi/Butet will have another chance at Zhang/Zhao this week. Can they fulfill their seeding first? They better do!

    Nova Widianto/Vita Marissa vs Xu Chen/Ma Jin [2] - Xu/Ma to advance.

    Imogen Bankier outplayed ZYL in G1 to give her and Adcock a 21-19 win. She was extremely calm and alert and her defence was awesome. ZYL/ZN continue to sleepwalk.

    I can't watch HJE any more. It's pretty frustrating.

    CHN forcing errors from the GB pair as they surge to a 4-0 lead.

    CHN upping the pace and making this a runaway 8-1
