    TH got his visa already last year ( after US Open), Hendra Ag and Alvent, Vita marissa are applying visa also...
    Bao Chun Lai told me that he might go depends on the scheduel as he will play SIN Open and INA Open ...not sure after one week, he will fly again to US Open.

    The reason TH did not get US Visa last year as there was a terrorist named Taufik Hidayat and his age is around TH as well..even TH always gets questioned from Singapore Immigration eventhough they knew he is not but they had to check him and questioned him every time...good news that that Terrorist had died....

    Li Ning is very ambitious businessman. You think just the Chinese team is enough for him? :)

    I thought Boonsak was sponsored by Kumpoo? And Yes, Li Ning sponsors non-Chinese national team members too. They sponsor a few US players as well, such as Nicholas Jiandasa.

    The Chinese-Taipei team is showing up because they have to defend the huge pts they won last year.

    It's a pity INA officials are still outdated in their mindset.

    Big names coming??..

    Okay, this is the latest which i got from a very reliable source, barring any last minute withdrawals..

    "40 countries, 330 players, Chen Jin, Bao Chunlai and at least 10 other very strong Chinese players.
    Taufik also coming. It'll be the strongest US Open since 1997 Hong Ta Shan US Open"...yes, i remember that tourney..

    Stay tuned for the M&Q draws which should be done next week..

    A few other names are already published in the Canada Open thread.
