    No, nothing's made public yet.

    Let's look at last year's tournament:

    MS:
    Wong Choong Hann
    Lee Hyun Il
    Peter Gade
    Peter Rasmussen
    Sony Dwi Kuncoro
    Chen Jin

    WS:
    Camilla Martin
    Judith Meulendijks
    Pi Hong Yan
    Zhang Ning
    Mia Audina
    Jun Jae Youn

    MD:
    Jens Eriksen/Martin Lundgaard
    Chan Chong Ming/Chew Choon Eng
    Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng
    Lee Dong Soo/Yoo Yang Sung
    Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen
    Sigit Budiarto/Candra Wijaya

    Finals:
    Peter Gade, DEN - Peter Rasmussen, DEN 15/10, 15/5
    Zhang Ning, CHN - Camilla Martin, DEN 11/4, 11/5
    Sigit Budiarto/Candra Wijaya, INA - Jens Eriksen/Martin Lundgaard, DEN 15/9, 15/8

    ---

    Since it's an invitational tournament, the Danish participants ought to be:
    Gade, Jonassen, Camilla, JR/Lars, Eriksen/Lundgaard.

    Then they basically try to attract some "interesting" or "hot" players, rather than just go by world ranking. It's been a tough season, as everybody's been gearing up for the Olympics. The Masters don't give any ranking or qualification points, so I suspect the field could be weaker than normal this year. The organizers will see a lot of invited players declining, and they'll be forced to go for second or even third choices.

    In any case, I'm going to be there this year. :D
    Does anybody want to meet up?

    The field so far...

    MS:
    Peter Gade
    Kenneth Jonassen
    Wong Choong Hann
    M. Roslin Hashim
    Taufik Hidayat

    LS:
    Camilla Martin
    Tine Rasmussen
    Mia Audina
    Pi Hongyan
    Seo Yoon Hee

    MD:
    Lars Paaske/Jonas Rasmussen
    Martin Lundgaard/Jens Eriksen
    Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah
    Halim Hadyanto/Candra Wijaya
    Yim Bang Eun/Kim Yong Hyun
    Nathan Robertson/Anthony Clark

    Sorry if some of the names are misspelled, I took the information directly from a Danish newspaper.
    Here's the link: In danish

    As you can see, they still have to find one MS player and one LS player. The LS player will be from China, don't know about the MS player, but if they can get one of the strong Chinese players, I am sure that's what they will do.

    Wonder why Chinese chose not to participate, I think Chen Hong or Chen Yu should be a good candidates for this event. Why Roslin Hashim? I rather pick Lee Chong Wei or Hafiz or even Boonsak P.
    I guess it's just not up to us, the real fan. IBF should consider the All-Star for badminton, East vs West like baseball, basketball...
    May be in my dream ...

    ah.... Gade will be in home ground, and also without the darn wind in the stadium. this will be a more accurate gauge of how well he has recovered.

    good choice for Chen Yu and Xie. both needs more experience.

    Sigit and Trikus are probably not chosen since the Copenhagen Masters is an invitational tournament. Sigit is a pretty decent doubles player but his partner is still a bit below him and they aren't consider one of the elite doubles pair so they are probably not chosen.
