    Marin, Nehwal are absent as badminton stars return to Seoul action

    [FONT=&quot]BWF has shifted Korea Open SS to autumn this year, since 2007 this event always be opening tournament of 12 Superseries installments in January. The 24[SUP]th[/SUP] edition of Victor Korea Open officially will kick off on tomorrow, started from qualifying round, the spectacular final with thrilling atmosphere in Japan may repeat to its neighbour, Korea. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]
    The stunning MS line-up towards Rio Olympic, we’ll see after team manager’s meeting this evening whether second seed Jan O Jorgensen will also skip this Superseries as well after Japan Open last week due to stomach infection. Defending champion Chen Long along with former winners Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei are pre tournament favourites but string of potential names may steal the show in Seoul, two fast rising youngsters Kento Momota and Viktor Axelsen, home hopeful Son Wan Ho plus the other seeded players, Chou Tien Chen and Kidambi Srikanth, both of them are trying to bounce back after pretty uninspiring performance lately. Two Chinese leading men are drawn at same quarter, barring any upsets Chen Long will challenge his illustrious senior Lin Dan at last eight. The Malaysian star Lee CW will start his campaign from qualification, his first opponent is Heo Kwang Hee whom had beaten by Lee last week. In the main draw, Lee will take on German resilient MS, Marc Zwiebler at R/32.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Round of 32 highlights[/FONT][FONT=&quot] : Chen Long (CHN) v Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk (THA), Tian Houwei (CHN) v Kidambi Srikanth (IND), Lee Chong Wei (MAS) v Marc Zwiebler (GER), H.S. Prannoy (IND) v Chou Tien Chen (TPE)[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]In the absence of two high profile WS, Carolina Marin and Saina Nehwal, the Chinese trio of Li Xuerui, Wang Shixian, Wang Yihan will capitalize the opportunity to end their title drought here after Sun Yu won SIN Open last April. At the top-half draw, Tai Tzu Ying, Ratchanok Intanon, local favourite Sung Ji Hyun who grabbed bronze medal at Jakarta World Championships and Akane Yamaguchi are favourites to go further while newly-crowned Japan Open winner Nozomi Okuhara joins the Chinese at lower half of draw as potential player to make a cut at last round. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]R/32 highlights[/FONT][FONT=&quot] : Ratchanok Intanon (THA) v Pusarla Venkata Sindhu (IND), Porntip Buranaprasertsuk (THA) v Nozomi Okuhara (JPN), Yui Hashimoto (JPN) v Wang Shixian (CHN)[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT] [FONT=&quot]Korean darling Lee Yong Dae is expected to regain his 2013 title at homesoil, this time with Yoo Yeon Seong and the duo begin the mission against Indonesian promising pair Gideon/Sukamuljo at first round. Last year winner Boe/Mogensen, Endo/Hayakawa, former world champion Ko SH/Shin BC have same half with top-seed. Their closest rivals are grouped at bottom half, Ahsan/Setiawan and Japan Open beaten finalist Fu HF/Zhang N together with two unstable Chinese combinations, Liu XL/Qiu ZH and Chai B/Hong W, three underdogs that projected to stun their higher rank opponent such as Kamura/Sonoda, Kim GJ/Kim SR and Pratama/Suwardi.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]R/32 highlights[/FONT][FONT=&quot] : Ko SH/Shin BC (KOR) v Ivanov/Sozonov (RUS), Astrup/Rasmussen (DEN) v Chai/Hong (CHN), Pratama/Suwardi (INA) v Liu XL/Qiu ZH (CHN)[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT] [FONT=&quot]China WD is unbeatable in Korea Open since 2010 edition and the trend most likely will continue with their powerful squad, former winner Wang XL/Yu Y, Tang JH/Tian Q, Ma J/Tang YT, the twin sisters Luo Y/Luo Y and reunion partnership Bao YX/Zhong QX. We’ll wait the last updated whether top-seed Matsutomo/Takahashi comes to Seoul after retired at last week JPN Open. Four home scratch pairs may hope to gain better result here, Chae YJ/Kim SY, Chang YN/Lee SH, Eom HW/Kim HN, Jung KE/Shin SC. Another title contenders, Pedersen/Juhl and Maheswari/Polii are predicted to progress into quarter before start to set up clash with the Chinese pair.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]R/32 highlights[/FONT][FONT=&quot] : Ma J/Tang YT (CHN) v Eom HW/Kim HN (KOR), Bao YX/Zhong QX (CHN) v Chae YJ/Kim SY (KOR)[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot][/FONT][FONT=&quot]Defending champion Zhang N/Zhao YL will set their mind to redeem JPN Open final losing last Sunday and repeat last year successful. One of their arch-rival, Fischer/Pedersen misses this event while their biggest stumbling block here Ahmad/Natsir, Xu C/Ma J are drawn at lower half. Home XD who shocked two favourites last week, Ko SH/Kim HN and Kim GJ/Shin SC will be fully supported by home crowd to seek glory as their predecessors did at previous editions, named Lee Yong Dae/Lee Hyo Jung (2007, 2008) and the famous golden couple, Kim Dong Moon/Ra Kyung Min (1999-2004).[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]R/32 highlights[/FONT][FONT=&quot] : Liu C/Bao YX (CHN) v Kim GJ/Shin SC (KOR), Ko SH/Kim HN (KOR) v Reginald Lee CH/Chau HW (HKG), Chan PS/Goh Liu Y (MAS) v Lu K/Huang YQ (CHN), Lee YD/Lee SH (DEN) v Jordan/Susanto (INA)[/FONT]

    Tks for always being so fast and comprehensive to create these tournament threads! :)

    May I please suggest you also add in the future this BWF court 2 livestream and archive link for most all BWF SS events... seems to start in early rounds. And because sometimes court 2 has some very interesting matches.

    Right out of the bat, all 3 INA XD pairs will either lose or 1 will survive:

    Widianto/Dili and Ronald/Melati vs CHN's Wang Yilv/Luo Yu and XuChen/MaJin and Edi/Gloria vs. Taipei's Alan/Tse and they have lost thrice 0-3 in H2H.

    I notice since JPN Open that I see MS, WS and XD players with last name Mainaky. They are nephews of the head coach's famous family Mainaky brothers? They are not in pelatnas right? Are they independent players? What are their rankings? How can they participate in SS?

    Ahh.... I looked up my question and Lyanny Mainaky is the daughter of Reoni Mainaky, the JPN MD coach. So I guess she and her brother, Yehezkiel Fritz Mainaky are in a JPN badminton club and enter as JPN players.

    They enter as INA players, but maybe they train in JPN as they are independent players. Somehow I don't think they have potential.

    Glad that Ihsan won over Tago 21-19, 21-17. However it's kind of sad seeing that poor results recently coming from such a talent like Tago. Hope he will soon bounce back to his top form.
