    [font=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][font=Helvetica, Arial]Asian Badminton Championships to begin from Sept 6[/font][/font]

    Sunday, August 28, 2005 (Hyderabad):

    It will be a new role for former All England Champion Pullela Gopichand who dons the mantle of Tournament Director for the Asian Badminton Championships 2005 beginning next month.

    It has been almost an year since Gopichand competed in a professional singles event, and although he has yet to officially announce his retirement, his new avatar is a pointer to the direction he might be taking soon.

    "I will be involved in promoting the game and in organisational matters," Gopichand told reporters today at the Gachibowli Stadium, the venue of the ,000 (approx Rs. 53.75 lakh) prize money event from September 6 to 11.

    Top players

    It must be a big disappointment for the local crowd that Gopichand did not qualify for an event happening is his own backyard.

    In fact, Gopichand has in recent times been spending more time in setting up an academy at Gachibwoli than honing his skills on the court.

    Prominent among the top players to take part in the event are former All England champion Hashim Muhdii of Malyasia, twice Asian champion Sony Dwi Kuncora of Indonesia and Athens Olympics semi-finalist Boonsak Pnsana besides Lee Hyin Il of Korea and Ng Wei of Hong Kong, president of AP Badminton Association K Durga Prasad said.

    The Chinese team is yet to be confirmed and the event begins after formal inauguration the previous day.

    Among the Indians taking part the prominent are-Abhinn Shyam Gupta,Arvind bhat,Chetan Anand -all MS and Aparna Popat,Trupti Murgunde-WS.

    Among India's doubles hopes are Sanave Thomas and Rupesh kumar who stetched the WC runners-up Candra-Wijaya 15-11,15-11 in the WC


    Youngsters[Prodigies!] to watch out for are Saina Nehwal and P.Kashyap.Saina has made it a habit to do well even in the senior circuit[she' s just around 16,took part in the Indian team for Uber Cup last year].P.Kashyap on the other hand[18 yrs or so]has a senior title to boast about which he won only 3 weeks ago beating none other than the likes of Chetan Anand,Abhinn Shyam gupta etc.on the way.[Both trainees of the new Pullela Gopichand academy-and results are aldready obvious]

    Hope Indians do well on their homeground.

    Not much hope for the Indian squad



    V.V. Subrahmanyam







    HYDERABAD: : The main draw of the Indian Oil senior Asian badminton championship for men and women commencing at the Gachibowli indoor stadium here on Wednesday wears a depleted look as most of the Asian giants have preferred to send the second string players.

    The most notable absentee is reigning World and Olympic champion Taufik Hidayat.

    The fact that even in this weak field there are only two Indians who have been seeded — Arvind Bhat and Abhinn Shyam Gupta — in men's section and Aparna Popat in women's category — may well be an indication of where the Indian shuttlers stand in the international circuit.

    Hyderabad's Chetan Anand, fresh from his Sri Lanka Satellite championship victory, and Abhinn Shyam Gupta continue to be the main hopes.

    The focus will certainly be on the young Indian talent like Saina Nehawal, Krishna Deka Raja, Aparna Balan, Trupti Murgunde in girls' section and Sagar Chopra, Aditi Pawar, in boys' category.

    Aparna cautious



    Aparna Popat, the world No.34, sounded cautious saying her first target was to improve her previous best pre-quarterfinal appearance in the last ABC championship.

    "I am confident. The draw looks pretty okay. Let us see how things shape up," she said.

    Vimal Kumar, the Indian coach feels that Thai Boonsak Ponsana, Athens Olympics silver medallist, could well be the dark horse given his rich repertoire of strokes and great retrieving ability. The championship with a prize money of $1,25,000 includes singles and doubles in men's and women's section besides mixed doubles.

    The seedings (world rankings in brackets):

    Men: 1. Ng Wei (Hong Kong, No. 9), 2. Kuan Beng Hong (Malaysia, No. 11), 3.Lee Hyun II (Korea, No.12), 4. Boonsak Ponsana (Thai, No.14) and Ayob Sairul Amar (Malaysia, No.16). Women: 1.Wang Chen (Hong Kong, No.4), 2. Hirose Eriko (Japan, No.8), 3. Mori Kaori (Japan, No.9), 4. Yonekura Kanako (Japan, No.10), 5.Salakjit Ponsana (Thailand, No.13).

    Is the Draw online?

    Is the draw published online?

    How come Rupesh Kumar and Sanave Thomas don't seem to be playing?
    I saw their match against Candra and Sigit at the World Championships. They were very impressive -- Candra and Sigit won in 2 straight, but they had to work for it, and the play was amazingly entertaining. Hadi Sugiyanto's coaching seems to have really helped.

    Taufik and the other top players are rested for the upcoming Indonesian Open 2005. Sony will the the only player competing after Simon also was withdrawn (injured). Sony is expected to play Boonsak in the quarter-final, which is an interesting matchup.

    Markis/Hendra are second-seeded. I hope they can go all the way to the final as expected. The only tough match will come in the semi from the young Malaysians Tan/Ong. Hendra/Joko are eight-seeded and will play Njoto/Liu (which they have beaten) in the quarter-final.

    Ah, Lee Hyun Il is facing Poompat Sapkulchananart in the first round! Poompat pushed Lin Dan to 3 games in their 3rd round match at WC05.

    All fans of Cheng Shiao-Chieh, note: she is seeded 5/8 and is due to play B.R.Meenakshi first up.

    And I wonder -- is Hendra Gunawan related to Tony? Or is that a common surname?

    The XD field seems more heavily depleted than the others.

    Badminton: China pulls out of Asian Badminton Championship
    [​IMG] Wednesday, September 7, 2005 (Hyderabad):

    The Asian Badminton championship was robbed of its sheen after powerhouse China pulled out of the event as its team could not board the flight on time.

    "The 17-member Chinese team expressed its inability to participate in the event as it could not board the flight at Beijing on time," Asian Badminton Confederation general secretary B K Varma told reporters.

    Varma was speaking on the sidelines of the event at the Gachibowli indoor stadium, where the event began in a depleted strength with majority of the nations sending second rung teams.

    When asked what action would be taken against China, Varma cautiously replied "we will study the detailed letter the Chinese team will be sending us with full explanation and take a decision based on the reasons mentioned in the letter".

    The tournament, which was scheduled to start yesterday, was postponed by a day on the request of China and Malaysia as they have to return from the satellite championship.

    Abhin loses in first round

    September 07, 2005 21:33 IST



    Hosts India suffered a setback on the opening day, with Abhin Shyam Gupta crashing out in the men's singles first round of the Asian Badminton Championships at the Gachibowli stadium in Hyderabad on Wednesday.

    Other Indians, Chetan Anand, P Kasyap and Arvind Bhat entered the second round by virtue of walk-overs, as their respective opponents did not show up in the much-touted event, which turned out to be a lacklustre affair with China pulling out at the last moment and other nations sending second string teams.

    Gupta lost to Chen Shih Hao of Chinese Taipei, who came from behind to romp home with a determined pace and grit at 15-11, 9-15, 8-15.

    The Indian clinched a hard-fought first game but his play receded and the quality came down in the subsequent games and the visitor had little difficulty in winning the match.

    It was a different tale in the women's section, Trupti Murgunde and Saina Nehwal entering the second round with easy wins.

    Trupti smashed Puja Shrestha 11-3, 11-0 as the Nepali girl could not withstand her aggression. Saina also did likewise against Sahar Zamanian of Iran, winning 11-1, 11-0.

    Top seed Ng Wei (Hong Kong) had a walk-over while second seed Kuan Beng Hong (Malaysia) defeated Balram Thapa 15-6, 15-9 in the first round.

    Pakistan’s Wajid Ali advances as Omer and Waqas lose: Kuan and Lee in 2nd round of Asian Badminton C’ship

    HYDERABAD (India): Second-seeded Kuan Beng Hong of Malaysia breezed past Nepal’s Balram Thapa 15-6, 15-9 and third-ranked South Korean Lee Hyun-il defeated Thai player Poompat Sapkulchananart 15-13, 15-6 on Wednesday in the men’s singles opening round of the Asian Badminton Championship.

    Top-seeded Wei Ng of Hong Kong was not required to step on to the court as his Afghan opponent, Arash Gherman, failed to turn up. Wei’s match was among several walkovers on the opening day as four nations China, Afghanistan, Mongolia and Iraq dropped out of the championship.
