    axelsen is withdrawing. hs prannoy will be pfq (promoted from qualifying).

    if sakai decides to play i'll bet he doesn't get out of qualifying. he'll be too tired from the indonesian final to win 2 qualifying matches in 1 day.

    I think Victor Axelsen is going to skip this tournament. Not sure though. Steen was mentioning about that.
    @iLoveYongDae , Anders Antonsen is not European Champion but Rajiv Ouseph is.

    I don't understand, only 3 PFQs in the main draw, yet there's a PFR to replace #2 seed, how's that possible?

    Anyways LCW and VA withdrew relaxing a super packed Lower half a bit.
    The draw looks great for HSP who if maintained INA open's form can book yet another SF ticket.
    The bottom quarter only has the recently crowned European champion Rajiv O. and runner up Andres along with resilient THW and evergreen LHIl as the contenders.

    BSP vs Rajiv in first round. It is a very tough one. Rajiv with his height advantage, he will make your physical condition even worse.

    For srikanth, 1st round would be Emil holst and second round possibly with Son Won Ho. He would try to go all out for revenge.

    HSP * Yeah Rajiv is difficult but he is like AJ. You start attacking and scoring points he starts having second thoughts on his game plan and his natural game shakes, a good start and HSP should win

    I agree, and Rajiv also played quite well last well at Indonesia Open, I believe he can maintain his form

    Does everyone think Srikanth Kidambi can continue his performance from last week? Or who do you think will win it all?

    axelsen is withdrawing. hs prannoy will be pfq (promoted from qualifying). lin dan will play lee dong keun (kor).

    i wonder if sakai makes it out of qualifying. will he be too tired from the indonesian final to win 2 qualifying matches in 1 day?

    6 ms were pfr (promoted from reserve).

    Is that right? Do you know if he's nursing an injury? His recent performance at the INDO Open was rather concerning, but I suppose you could contribute that being in a new venue then previous years was a factor.

    I agree with you my friend. The bottom half is so heavy relative to the top half. I hope HSP continues to stay in good form. Great for the sport to see emerging players. The "evergreen" LHIL can be the dark horse.

    I agree with you @samkool , in addition, his style of paly is very much a rallier. I wouldn't be surprised if he runs out of gas. How much longer do you think the Hong Kong badminton program keeps sending Hu Yun to tournaments?

    i was wondering that myself so i checked the m&q report from may 30th. it's a typo. zulfadli zulkiffli was seeded #3 in qualifying so he naturally fills the #2 seed place, according to the draw formula laid out by bwf.

    Zulfadli Zulkiffli [PFR] is a mistyped since he was a qualifier before, not a reserved player. It should be PFQ. ;)

    It’s on in Sydney! This is the last time that Sydney will stage Superseries tournament as next year Australia Open is classified into level 5 of BWF new structure 2018-2021 tournament. After sensational INA Premier was concluded couple of days ago where the underdogs stole the limelight particularly in singles category now badminton fans will wondering whether those JCC shocking outcome would happen once again or the favourites will flying high at Sydney Olympic Park.

    Men’s singles draw will miss two Rio medalists, Lee Chong Wei and Viktor Axelsen who pulled out from this tournament. China twin stars, the Olympic Champion Chen Long and his more illustrious senior Lin Dan will be the frontrunners to book final ticket considering dazzling reputation despite they’re unseeded here. Chen is slated to meet either 5th seed Jan O Jorgensen or his conqueror last year Anthony Ginting at last sixteen. Two-time Olympic Champion Lin who initially must face Viktor Axelsen has more favourable opening round against familiar name Lee Dong Keun and possibly Jonatan Christie at next round. The giant-killer Prannoy has been promoted to main draw and will face Englishman Rajiv Ouseph tomorrow. Defending champion Hans Kristian Vittinghus occupies a lighter top-half of draw alongside with current world number one Son Wan Ho who has highly possibility to take on Kidambi Srikanth at second round, the man who denied final spot in Jakarta several days ago. Another seeded players will see Chou Tien Chen, Shi Yuqi and Angus Ng Ka Long.

    Women’s singles competition will present stiff rivalry since beginning of main draw, Taiwanese star Tai Tzu Ying has 2013 World Champion Ratchanok Intanon in her path en route to last eight. Rio silver medalist Pusarla Sindhu must meet newly-crowned INA Premier Champion Sayaka Sato while two other elite names, Sung Ji Hyun and two-time World Champion Carolina Marin also have premature hard test, title-holder Saina Nehwal and former All England Champion Nozomi Okuhara. Three Chinese players, last year beaten finalist Sun Yu is expected to pass first round while her younger compatriots, 7th seed He Bingjiao and reigning world junior champion Chen Yufei have tricky opponent to overcome.

    Top-seed and defending champion Gideon/Sukamuljo conceded to withdraw due to Kevin’s ligament injury, they’re better to focus for upcoming Glasgow World Championships. Also absent in Aussie meet this time, two high profile European pairs, Boe/Mogensen and Ivanov/Sozonov. Malaysian favourite Goh/Tan are back to action after skipped INA Open last week and will find Japan hurdle, Inoue/Kaneko at first round. World number two Li JH/Liu YC who enjoyed successful in Jakarta are drawn with Indonesians Pratama/Suwardi and Japanese leading duo Kamura/Sonoda.

    It’s lack of participant that awardswomen’s doubles top-four seededs get first round bye. Reigning Asian and Olympic Champion Matsutomo/Takahashi have meeting prospect with teammates Tanaka/Yonemoto at last eight. Chinese talented teens Chen/Jia are slated to face Rio bronze medalists Jung KE/Shin SC at quarterfinal if the Koreans could tame two reunion Chinese pairs in the row, Bao YX/Tang JH and Huang YQ/Yu XH. Second seed Juhl/Pedersen will be surrounded by Japanese and Korean combination at lower-half of draw, Chang YN/Lee SH, Fukuman/Yonao, Fukushima/Hirota.

    Two quarterfinal mixed doubles INA Premier rematches will be served on opening round here, world number one Zheng/Chen versus Christiansen/Thygesen and the Olympic Champion Ahmad/Natsir contra Malaysian number one Tan KM/Lai PJ. European established pairs, Fischer/Nielsen and English married couple The Adcocks have possible quarterfinal encounter. Indonesian inconsistent duo Jordan/Susanto who crashed out early at homesoil have chance to make amends here, a complicated task awaits them at first round, Japanese promising pair Watanabe/Higashino. Thai rapid rise combination Puavaranukroh/Taerattanachai are another seeded pair at bottom half of draw as two Chinese top-ranked Lu/Huang also Zhang/Li as well have withdrawn.
