    It is official, at least from BWF that Philippines Open will start from June 30 to July 5...I wish they scheduled before or after Thai Open..on 2nd thought....Thai Open can be cancelled due to unrest........

    Basically there is 4 tournaments in June>:
    1. Singapore Open SS ( June 9 -14)
    2. Indonesia Djarum Open SS ( June 16-21)
    3. Malaysia Open GP ( June 23-28)
    4.Philippines Open GP ( June 30 -July 5)

    I can see Elit chinese team to Sin and INA Open then their 2nd tier to Malaysia and Phillippines Open..

    2nd tier players will most likely to play in Phil Open. Only few top ranked players will make it. I'm sure TH will go for sure. LCW, KKK/TBH may make it as they are the defending champ.

    yup, i really doubt any of the top players would skip the SS for the GP events.
    at least it's good news that they rescheduling it rather than cancelling it altogether.

    well..this event is not sponsored by Yonex Sunrise...I think TH will not go..he will play Singapore, INA and may be MAS Open...unless Bingo Bonanza will fly him , etc........tough for top players to play 4 tournaments in a row.......
