    .
    It should be the same as for all other Super Series tournaments held worldwide (I believe).

    BWF dictates the requirements required to hold these Super Series tournaments; and the tournament hosts are required to meet their BWF's standards.

    .
    Thanks CLELY. :):):)

    I have been rather busy lately. Thank you for posting to continue giving info about our BWF tournaments over the many months/years for our BC members.

    What I have a missed is our BC PAW Games organised by Sandy. I wonder when Sandy will be back.

    Me too, big possible our PAW organizer is very busy.

    It's understandable, really hard to play three weeks in a row for singles players.

    In main draw, some players get free R/16 ticket due to withdrawals and no reserve player to replace that vacant position.

    Qualification round will be started tomorrow (10.00am local time) => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...76F387-F73A-4B14-BDEB-D5D59D6CB275&d=20140624

    Yes, indeed, it's difficult to play back-to-back tournaments and certainly gets tiring and stressful. With the latest withdrawals, the MS category is an open field now. We'll also see a repeat of the 'Thomas Cup final deciding match' when Daren Liew takes on Takuma Ueda in the first round.

    Pictures update through AUS Badminton Open facebook : https://www.facebook.com/AusBadOpen

    Four MS qualifiers : Oon Hoe Keat (AUS), Mohamad Arif Abdul Latif (MAS), Riichi Takeshita (JPN), Chiang Jiann Shiarng (MAS). INA back up player Wisnu Yuli who reached R/16 last week failed to enter main draw here, lost tamely to Takeshita, 11-21 / 6-21.

    Saina vs Sun Yu - eager to watch this match but will have to stick to live score due to not being scheduled on either of the TV courts.
