    I notice from the draw that the juniors from China were included but they are not in the qualification rounds. Does anyone know the reason they are not participating? I was so looking forward to it.

    Who are you referring to? Many chinese players, like Si Wei Zheng and Kaixiang Huang, are already in the main draw

    all matches with chinese players

    I'm disappointed that YOG Champion He Bingjiao who was in the reserve list didn't get a chance to compete.

    Zhang Beiwen and Michelle Li are slated to meet in the semifinals, should be a much-awaited matchup for many of us.

    The other one for me, even more so, is the possible face-off between Sun Yu and Carolina Marin.

    ...yes indeed.

    Nice to see Olga Konon's name on the schedule again. Interesting field for WS - Kirsty, Beatriz, Lindaweni, Chloe (Magee, IRE) and Karin (Schnaase) will all fancy their chances. Might be worth keeping and eye on Ksenia Polikarpova (RUS), and Tee Jing Yee (MAS) will want to join the party too.

    And let's offer a welcome to Kate Foo Kune (Mauritius) and Eli Mambwe (Zambia).

    2013 WINNERS => http://bwf.tournamentsoftware.com/s...DC042F-89A4-4C82-ADB7-F7F06FE97613&d=20131103

    WS - Nichaon Jindapon (THA)
    MD - Mads Conrad Petersen/Mads Pieler Kolding (DEN)
    WD - Eefje Muskens/Selena Piek (NED)
    XD - Michael Fuchs/Birgit Michels (GER)


    Saarbrucken time : http://www.worldtimezone.com/time/wtzresult.php?CiID=3742&forma=Find Time

    The tournament will kick off today, started from qualifying round (11.00am local time, 4 courts) and MS R/64 (04.00pm) : https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/sport/matches.aspx?id=6C6A8325-63B2-45E6-AB03-D92A5B77B300

    All defending champions take part here except Nichaon Jindapon, we'll looking forward first appearance of Carolina Marin after her sensational winning in Copenhagen WC. Newly French SS champion, Chou Tien Chen is main contender to retain his title along with home fave Marc Zwiebler and Tian Houwei.

    MS first round highlight, Gao Huan v Eric Pang should be interesting to follow.

    Not very nice! :(

    Incidentally, Kate is the stunningly lovely Karen's younger sister.

    Some people can get themselves childishly riled by very trivial matters like the names of their favorites not being mentioned.
    To be frank I think one of them is quite good.
    I think Kate Foo Kune must be of Chinese Hakka descent.

    If it is your joke then it is not a very nice one as Cobalt put it. Enough said.
