    he did indeed,

    he has been having good results in the european circuit. a little unlucky not to be part of the indian team at the thomas/uber cup but am sure more top performances are coming up for him this year.

    he along with anup and kashyap will be the indian singles players to keep an eye for this year

    Hmm...what will be the next event for them (and perhaps for Rian/Yoke after the European GPs)?

    My guess:
    01-06 Apr India Open GP Gold 2008 *provided they are not cancelled again
    15-20 Apr Asian Continential Championships 2008

    Thomas Cup in May, so, very likely no tourneys for them.

    A host of Asian International Series events (used to be Satellite events), but, I suppose both pairs are past International Series levels.

    June will be a busy month!
    03-06 Jun Philippines Open GP Gold 2008 *provided they are also not cancelled
    10-15 Jun Singapore Open SS 2008 (Rian/Yoke only)
    17-22 Jun Indonesia Open SS 2008 -- home event, can't miss for both pairs!
    24-29 Jun Thailand Open GP Gold 2008 (Fran/Rendra only)

    01-06 Jul Vietnam International Challenge 2008 (Fran/Rendra only if necessary)
    15-20 Jul New Zealand Open 2008 (both pairs)

    26-30 Aug Indonesia Challenge 2008 (Fran/Rendra only again, if necessary)

    I know you would be awake :D

    Look's like Djarum's effort is not wasted after all. 1 pair sent and they went home with a title :D
