    The 24th South-East Asian (SEA) Games 2007 will be held at Korat (Thailand) from 6th to 15th December 2007. The badminton competition will be held at the Gymnasium of Vongchavalitkul University, Nakhon Ratchasima Province from 7th to 14th December.

    I hope to catch some of the badminton action there. Would appreciate if the Thais could advise me how long it would take to drive from Bangkok to Korat/Nakhon Ratchasima Province. Thanks!

    It was in the newspapers but I didnt keep it. Seniors : MD only Gan/Lin. MS only Kuan Beng Hong. WS : WOng MC. WD :Wong PT/ChinEH

    The rest are from Project 2010-12 and BJSS squad.
    Tan CS, Chan KB are sure to be in for MS.
    XD : Tan WK/WoonKE
    MD juniors : Mohd Razif/Khoo- the one who beat Luluk/Alvent in Macau Open
    THe above are those I'm sure are in.

    Possibility :
    WD juniors : Goh HL/Ng
    MD Juniors : Lim/Mak

    The rest of senior squad are competing in SS. KKK/TBH, CTF/LWW, LCW need to compete in SS Finals too.

    Rashid Sidek will lead the squad. NSC wanted Wong Tat Meng and Cheah SK to accompany the WS, WD but not confirmed yet, too near to Hong Kong Open.

    Badminton: Tough for shuttlers
    By RAJES PAUL


    PETALING JAYA: Indonesia will be at full strength for badminton in the SEA Games. And the draw is unfavourable to the Malaysians.

    With the odds stacked against them, Malaysia can only expect one gold medal from their top women's singles player Wong Mew Choo in the Korat Games next month.

    From the draw released by the Badminton Asia Confederation (BAC) in Bangkok on Wednesday, only Mew Choo has reason to smile.

    The 2003 gold medallist at the Games in Hanoi is the top seed and she is drawn to meet Singaporean Li Li in the semi-finals. The other half of the draw has second seed Maria Kristin Yulianti of Indonesia, Singaporean Xing Aiying and Malaysian Julia Wong.

    It will be tough for Chin Eei Hui-Wong Pei Tty to retain the women's doubles title. How the pair would fare would very much depend on the condition of Eei Hui, who is carrying back and knee injuries.

    They are seeded second behind China-born Singaporeans Li Yujia-Jiang Yanmei and the biggest threat in their path to the final are Indonesians Polii Greysia-Jo Novita, who have been drawn in their quarter.

    The men's singles and doubles gold medals are as good in Indonesia's bag.

    The top two seeds – Olympic champion Taufik Hidayat and World Championships runner-up Sony Dwi Kuncoro – are expected to make it a 1-2 finish in the men's singles.

    Malaysia's Yeoh Kay Bin is expected to meet Taufik in the quarter-finals while top back-up shuttler Tan Chun Seang is likely to meet Sony at the same stage.

    In the men's doubles, world champions Markis Kido-Hendra Setiawan are expected to live up to their top billings in the biennial Games. Malaysia's best bets – Gan Teik Chai-Lin Woon Fui – are expected to meet them in the semi-finals.

    In the lower half of the draw, Mohd Razif Abdul Latif-Khoo Chung Chiat will have to overcome two pairs – Singaporeans Hendra Wijaya-Hendri Kurniawan Saputra and second seeds Joko Riyadi-Hendra Gunawan of Indonesia – to make it to the final.

    In the team events, Malaysia are the third and top seeds in the men's and women's competitions respectively and Indonesia are the favourites to take both the titles.

    The team competitions are scheduled for Dec 8-10 and the individual events will be held from Dec 11-14.
    At the last Games in Manila in 2005, a stronger Malaysian team, led by Lee Chong Wei, won three of the seven gold medals at stake.

    The seeds for the individual events:

    MEN'S SINGLES
    Taufik Hidayat (1) -- drawn to meet a Laos player and then Kuan Beng Hong in QF. Ronald Susilo should await him in the SF.

    Sony Dwi Kuncoro (2) -- tough roads to SF, with Kendrick Lee Yen Hui in R16 and then possibly Tan Chun Seang in QF

    Boonsak Ponsana (3) -- easiest draw to SF among the 4 seeds, guaranteed a bronze medal.

    -- no Simon Santoso in the individual event :mad:

    MEN'S DOUBLES
    Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan (1) -- bye in R16 and then possibly a tricky opponent Sudket Prapakamol/Phattapol Ngensrisuk in QF. Gan Teik Chai/Lin Woon Fui should await them in SF.

    Hendra A. Gunawan/Joko Riyadi (2) -- an easy first round and then possibly Songphon Anugritayawon/Tesana Panvisvas in the QF. Hendri/Hendra will be a tough SF opponent.

    Hendri Kurniawan Saputra/Hendra Wijaya (3) -- an easy first round followed by Chang Hun Pin/Chan Peng Soon in the QF.

    Gan Teik Chai/Lin Woon Fui (4) -- easy opponents to SF.

    WOMEN'S SINGLES
    Wong Mew Choo (1) -- bye in R16, then followed by a match against Soratja Chansrisukot in the QF. Either Adriyanti Firdasari or Li Li will be waiting in the SF.

    Maria Kristin Yulianti (2) -- bye in R16, then a tough match against Xing Aiying in the QF. Julia Wong should be waiting in SF.

    Li Li (3) -- bye in R16, followed by a tough match against Adriyanti Firdasari in the QF. The top seed MAS player will be waiting in the SF.

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES
    Jiang Yanmei/Li Yujia (1) -- bye in R16, then either a MAS or THAI pair in QF. Vita Marissa/Lilyana Natsir should provide the opposition in SF.

    Wong Pei Tty/Chin Ee Hui (2) -- bye in R16, followed by possibly Jo Novita/Greysia Polii in the QF. If they can beat Jo/Greysia, the 3h seeded Thai pair will be their opponent in SF.

    Duang-Anong Arunkesorn/Kunchala Voravichitchaikul (3) -- easy road to SF.

    Vita Marissa/Lilyana Natsir (4) -- easy road to SF.

    MIXED DOUBLES
    Nova Widianto/Lilyana Natsir (1) -- bye followed by possibly a match against Hendra Wijaya/Jiang Yanmei. Sudket/Saralee will be their opponent in the SF.

    Flandy Limpele/Vita Marissa (2) -- bye followed by possibly a match against the Asuncion siblings in the QF. The 4th seeded Singaporean pair should be their opponent in the SF.

    Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam (3) -- smooth road to SF

    Hendri Kurniawan Saputra/Li Yujia (4) -- a Laos pair in R16 followed by possibly Tan Wee Kiong/Woon Khe Wei in the QF.

    Not really. They are giving youngsters more exposure while the seniors will concentrate more on OG'08. See the following discussion thread,

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=47161

    I remember INA used to do this some time in 1990s?

    My info is from the media. The media states them as "last minute entries to SEA Games" - I'm not sure if they are approved by BWF. Rashid Sidek entered them in last minute after they did well in Macau Open.

    If you have reading the Msian news, you will know that it is to give exposure to the
    1) juniors (for the men). Always they are in the background, senior squad 1st, when is their chance, that sort of feeling.

    2) Seniors like KBH, Gan/Lin - to boost their morale and to lead the juniors. KBH as you know, not much in terms of performance.
    Gan/Lin supposed to be the weakest senior MD pair(this was before CCM announce retirement). With selection trials for SS, being the weakest pair, when will they ever get to go, with 4 pairs better than them. At least they have a role to play, they're not that bad actually.

    At least they can feel proud to represent the country - they are very excited and grateful for their 1st call to play such a role, especially the juniors. Both BAM and NSC are not putting high hopes in the men's department.

    The medals are supposed to come from the women this time, i.e. WMC, WongPT/ChinEH. They are supposed to lead the way for Malaysia to win the Women's team event.
