    Thanks for the list. Sad there are not many Asians this year...
    It seems like the Danes should take a few titles!

    there are 3 back to back opens, Dutch, Denmark and German. most players who goes during that time always plays Denmark Open as it is the one with the highest rating. and then they pick one of Dutch/German. different countries have different priorities and scheduling as to which one they choose..

    Link has changed!!

    Toastie, you're right the link has changed since demolidor posted it!!! :eek: (it was correct in the first place)

    They're trying to get us mixed up!! :rolleyes:

    The new link for the 2004 list of players is : http://www.toernooi.nl/sport/players.asp?id=6091

    According to worldbadminton.net the Dutch Open draw should have been done more than one hour ago... they seem to be doing it just now as I'm writing this post! :)

    She is probably having a rest after the Olympics(?).

    It sure looks surprising that she isn't even competing in her home Open...

    it's likely also that she's looking forward to real challenges and is gathering herself for them..

    It could also be that league matches are scheduled this weekend as normal and it's the clash of the titans this saturday between Amersfoort(Dicky, Yao Jie, Lotte Bruil) and Velo(Mia).
    Then again Dicky is playing the Open and comparing rosters I don't think Velo has a chance so why not play in the Open :confused:
