Anyone know when and where you can find the new draw for the womens single?
i believe it's not done yet
that looks exactly like the original draw...
Here are some interesting matches for the 1st round of Women Singles. These are from the new drawing.
Wong Mew Choo (MAS) vs Chien Yu-chin (TPE)
Yao Jie (NED) vs Yu Hirayama (JAP)
Kaori Mori (JAP) vs Anu Nieminen (FIN)
Jiang Yanjiao (CHN) vs Saina Nehwal (IND)
Cheng Shao-chieh (TPE) vs Tine Rasmussen (DEN)
Salakjit Ponsana (THA) vs Eriko Hirose (JAP)
where did you find these? you have a link to the full draw?
this will be a good one, though i can't see the indian girl winning ... she's still got a bright future though.
Indeed, Jiang Yanjiao vs Saina Nehwal will be an interesting one. Bad draw for the Indian player.
Tsang, you can go to this website :
and you can find a re-draw of WS there in the website..
can someone tell me why there is a redraw for WS?
coz rachel van custen was not put into the draw, when she was suppose to be in it. But i have also read that the Danish team made a complaint.
Hmmm...Fransisca Ratnasari has a winnable first tie before she faces the winner between Wong Meow Choo and Chien Yu-Chin. On paper, looks better than the previous draw. At least, she has the chance to progress beyond the first rond
A Round 1/16 appearance will be a bonus for her as Zhang Ning probably awaits at that stage!
WS is so harsh.
you can roughly tell when your competition ends just by checking when you'll meet ZN or XXF.
Analysis of the re-drawn WS:
Zhang Ning (1)
Wong Meow Choo (9/16)
Yao Jie (5/8)
Tracey Hallam (9/16)
-- As mentioned above, Nana is in this quarter and she should win her first match, before facing the winner of the match between Wong Meow Choo vs Chien Yu-Chin. Xing Aiying also has a tough draw with a match against Zhang Ning if she can beat Rachel Hindley. Meanwhile, Yao Jie has a tricky first tie against Hirayama Yu. She is likely to face Monthila Meemek and Tracey Hallam before another meeting with Zhang Ning beckons.
Zhang to qualify from this quarter!
Wang Chen (3/4)
Petra Overzier (9/16)
Kaori Mori (9/16)
Jiang Yanjiao (5/8)
-- the young Chinese player faces a tricky tie against Saina Nehwal and she should meet Kaori Mori in the round of 16. Meanwhile, Wang Chen has a pretty smooth route to the quarter-final, with possible matches against Anna Rice and Petra Overzier. If things go according to seedings, the QF match between Wang and Jiang should be pretty interesting. Jiang to qualify from this quarter!
Yip Pui Yin (9/16)
Pi Hongyan (5/8)
Tine Rasmussen (9/16)
Xie Xingfang (3/4)
-- Tine Rasmussen vs Cheng Shao-Chieh is probably the pick of the tie for the first round. It's a 50-50 match and I do hope Cheng can win. The winner of that tie should progress to the round of 16 with a possible match against Xie Xingfang. The other quarter-finalist is probably Pi Hongyan, although she has to beat Yip Pui Yin in the round of 16. Xie to qualify from this quarter!
Hwang Hye Youn (9/16)
Petya Nedeltcheva (5/8)
Eriko Hirose (9/16)
Xu Huaiwen (2)
-- This is the only quarter without a Chinese player and it should be pretty open! Eriko Hirose faces a tricky tie against Salakjit Ponsana, but she should win that and meet Xu in the round of 16. The Singaporean player Li Li has a good chance to reach the quarter-final, if she can beat both Petya Nedeltcheva and Hwang Hye Youn. Xu Huaiwen to qualify from this quarter!
The title is probably going to be contested (yet again) between Zhang Ning and Xie Xingfang
Wong MC has a much tougher draw than before. First Chien, then Fransisca before Zhang. Before this, she would have breezed to the 3rd round to face Xie.
I think it is quite unfortunate that this draw had to be redone because of an error by the IBF. During 2005 Worlds also they had to do a redraw because of an error by the IBF; I believe it was the MXD. Thought they would be more careful this time!
Way to go IBF...
Go to the IBF website,
There is an explanation for why the redraw was done under the latest news.
Off topic-If not mistaken...
If i'm not mistaken(correct me if i'm wrong), it was probably due to the very late and sudden change of travel itinerary for the England team. Remember last yr, British Airways' employees had stopped working and were in full-picketing mode, as it went on for a few days, halting and disturbing all flights. I was there at the hotel where most teams were staying, and we were waiting for the England's team to arrive for 2-3 full days. Miraculously, the team arrived just in time, before the 1st day of competition, and that was after stopping and transiting in numerous U.S. cities before landing in L.A. But after an initial practice session, Nathan Robertson suffered a horrific ankle injury...which basically dealt a major blow to his pursuit in the XD field...and put a damper to the whole England's team..
Hope Nana can meet Zhang Ning, it will be a great experience for her.
omg....Mew Choo`s draw is tougher then the previous one...round of 16 she will meet Zhang Ning...
