    The qualification stage is over, with plenty of qualifiers I haven't heard of, and some I have.

    Today is the first-round of the main draw.

    MS (R64)
    The top 8 seeds have a first-round bye.
    Nothing interesting in the Round of 64. Don't think there will be a single upset.

    WS (R32)
    Nothing interesting here as well.

    MD (R32)
    Wijaya/Budiarto v Mainaky/Mainaky
    Chan/Koo v Archer/Clark

    WD (R32)
    Nothing interesting here (would you believe it?).

    XD (R32)
    Lee Yong Dae/Ha Jung Eun v Druzchenko/Nozdran
    Tan Bin Shen/Ooi Sock Ai v Bergstroem/Persson (seeded third)

    Nothing much to look forward to today.

    Actually, for me nothing to look forward to for the entire tournament with the exception of the men's doubles.

    That's surprising. There are some top-level players in the tournament. We just have to wait till the later stages.

    True, but I am comparing it with the recent AE and German Opens where everyone was there save for the 2 Indonesian MS favorites. This is more like the Korean Open when you look at the entry list. As an aside, I didn't see Kenneth Jonassen's name in the draw list. I thought he was joining this?

    Tan Bin Shen/Ooi Sock is too weak. Bergstroem/Persson have no any trouble to beat them. 15:2/15:10

    Lee Yong Dae/Ha Jung Eun beat Druzchenko/Nozdran 15:6/15:12

    TSAI Chia-Hsin/CHENG Wen-Hsing beat the 4th seed SHIRLEY Daniel/RUNESTEN PETERSEN Sara 15:10/15:12

    SPITKO Roman/METTE Carina beat LINDLEY D. /RAYAPPAN Suzanne in a rubber game 17:14/11:15/15:6

    some noticeable results in the 1st round of ms:

    AHN Hyun Suk beat KIDD Nicholas in a rubber game 15:5 4:15 15:11

    OEDUM Kasper beat ZWIEBLER Marc in a close game 15:9 17:14

    GHAFFAR Aamir lost to a qualifier YONG Yudianto 5:15 15:13 4:15

    I can't image how he can beat DICKY Palyama in AE a week ago!

    KUAN Beng Hong beat VONDRA Jan in a ruber game 15:6 7:15 15:11.

    So he can beat the 5th seed BOESEN Anders in the 2nd round again?
