    I think these guys are pretty decent for Osaka International Challenge. This kinds of tournaments are meant for up & coming youngsters like the ones in the lineup...

    Really?!? Adnan Fauzi, Trikus-Bambang, etc. eh? For PON seedings, I assume... :cool: That's cool. For now, the more active INA professionals, the better...

    Hwang should play at Finnish instead of Osaka...trvalling back and forth is not easy....7 weeks in a row...I think she may crash despite of being top seed in WS

    Read somewhere (Jawa Pos perhaps) that they WILL NOT come for Osaka International. SNGG officials thought that those senior players were not ready for an Int Challenge event :eek::eek:
