    Viktor Axelsen (The World Badminton Champion)

    Livescore and Daily Match Schedule available at :

    One of the most popular events in the Badminton Calendar year, Japan Open enjoys a plethora of stars fighting for ultimate glory.

    In the Men's Singles, Viktor Axelsen is the Biggest star of the event having recently captured the World Badminton Championships title defeating Lin Dan of China. He will open his campaign against Thailand's southpaw Tanongsak Saensoomboonsuk before a potential meeting with Korea Open runner up Jonathan Christie

    Defending Champion, LEE Chong Wei will aim for record 7th Japan Open title. He opens his account against Vincent Wong Wing Ki of HKG before an interesting clash with Qiao Bin or Tommy Sugiarto.

    India's Srikanth Kidambi will face Tian Houwei of PRC to revive this old rivalry. South Korea's Number One seed Son Wan Ho could face the Qualifier Parupalli Kashyap and China's Lin Dan to cross path with Sourabh Verma of India in the opening round.


    Match of The Day could be Wang Tzu Wei of Chinese Taipei vs Lee Hyun Il, the 38 year old Korean Footwork Master.

    Who will want to miss India's Prannoy HS play against Antonsen Anders of Denmark nicknamed 'The Next Axelsen'. Number two seed, Shi Yuqi of China takes on France's la creme de la creme - Brice Leverdez.

    Will Zhao Junpeng irritate Chou Tien Chen or Will Huang Yuxiang show his mental strength to Hans Kristian Solberg Vittinghus?

    Hu Yun vs Anthony Sinsiuka Ginting will be for those who associate themselves with the word 'elegance'.



    In the WS, PV Sindhu of India vs Minatsu Mitani of Japan followed by Carolina Marin vs Chen Xiaoxin and He Bingjiao vs Sayaka Sato may impress your soul on the first day of the competition.


    Men's Doubles addict will attach glue to their seats when on the screen will appear Kamura/Sonada the home favourites taking on Ricky/Pratama. Goh V Shem and Tan Wee Kiong will have to sideline their differences if they want to better Astrup/Rasmussen.

    Okay then.
    Amazing post, Fox. You have written well to increase excitement surrounding the tournament.
    :D

    The draw has ensured that PV Sindhu or Nozomi Okuhara are sent home before QF! They might face off in R16.

    Modesty is certainly not one of your virtues but I like your sense of humour.

    Good job, err...haven't you usurped CLELY's prerogative ? :):p:D

    Looks like LCW has a theoretically easier path to the final.

    Chen Xiaoxin is thrown to the deep end from the get-go...but,wait, didn't she upset the Spanish in their only previous encounter ?

    Chen Yufei will take on the most improved player atm, Kirsty Gilmour, in the opening round before another clash with Intanon R since the WC, and if she get over that hurdle awaiting her will be none other than Tai TY, a draw for us fans to relish while anxious times ahead for her ? This is what she has to go through and emerge unscathed if she is to start ascending the heights.

    He Bingjiao has Sayaka Sato to manoeuvre past in R1 , followed by possibly the successful qualifier Michelle Li before a slated face-off with Sung Ji Hyun in the QFs.

    Incidentally, both CXX and HBJ are playing their 5th consecutive weeks of tournaments since the Glasgow WC while CYF who skipped the KOR Open is doing duty in her 4th tournament, enjoying a week's rest after the previous three back-to-back events.

    The JPN Open features a more star-studded cast than the just-concluded KOR Open and we should be in for a number of treats, not least is the repeat match-up of Nozomi - Sindhu but in the QFs this time.

    Happily, the blue ribbon MS event promises to be even more exciting and thrilling as virtually all the big names are in attendance with the sole exception of Chen Long who is on medical leave for his thigh muscle therapy.

    The only downside is the smaller prize money here, US$325K, as opposed to the US$600K of the KOR Open. The timing of the latter BWF World Superseries tournament, just two weeks after the WC, is probably the cause of the less than stellar turnout.

    He is listed as reserved list on that deep below the possibility to play (11th Reserved List). We could say it's almost impossible for him to play in qualification round.

    You could find the latest updates on him here

    I think the success of Korea winning the SudirmanCup just masking the deep troubles that they have and validate what i feel before SC and shown to bare last week.

    They have always have top players in single like Son&Sung (despite having only one and not multiples great players) but how many SS titles combined these two they have? ... is not more than what Japan have won this year.

    and they are doing the mistakes again like MenDouble eventually no proper replacement for MS and WS.

    I thought Bao Yixin retired after the WC? She's in the WD qualifying draw with Tang Jinhua.
