    Six CHN WD pairs...I don't really understand what the purpose of HYQ/TJH scratch pair is.

    Eagerly anticipating Denmark though, definitely my favorite tournament on the circuit.

    The most important in a tournament is the camera work and the broadcast of early rounds. The Den open excel in both most of the time

    A Good draw is key to a successful & exciting tournament.A poor and unbalanced draw can lead to a FLOP tournament like the recently concluded KOREA OPEN.Here is the draw for Denmark Open SSP.Make your mind and tell us what you think of this draw(Lmao):

    MS defending champion Chen Long is grouped with Lee Chong Wei, Lin Dan also Viktor Axelsen and P. Kashyap as well at top half of draw. Local hopeful Jan O Jorgensen alongside with Srikanth, Momota and Chou TC occupy lower-half of draw.

    WS, second seed Carolina Marin will get tricky opening round opponent, Sun Yu. Okuhara, Wang YH and Tai TY will join the Spaniard at bottom half. Top-seed Saina Nehwal is drawn with Sung JH, Li XR and Wang SX at upper half of draw.

    Kashyap has none other than LeeChongWei as his first round opponent. Very unfortunate.

    Korea open runner up Ajay Jayaram plays as first seed in the qualifiers. If he enters main draw , he will face none other than Lindan.

    Srikanth if passes the first round, he will meet Tommy Sugiarto.
    Prannoy has Kento momota as his second round opponent.

    Once again the trio : Chen Long, Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei unfortunately have same half draw after Japan Open SS so we'll see their premature clash before finale.

    Wang Zhengming has an unfortunate draw to face the host hopeful, seeded #2, Jan O Jorgensen in the first round, a replay of the 2015 Australian Open's QF.

    Tian Houwei will face the qualifier #4, most likely Lee Dong Keun, in the 1st round; if he passes then he may have chance for a revanche against Chou Tien Chen in the 2nd round, a replay of the recent Korea Open's QF.

    Lin Dan will face the qualifier #1, most likely the recent runner-up of Korea Open, Ajay Jayaram; and if he passes his first two rounds, may face again another host hopeful, Viktor Axelsen in the QF, a replay of Japan Open's finals.

    Chen Long has relatively easy draws in the first two rounds, but may have to face another king, Lee Chong Wei, in the QF, a replay of the 2015 World Championships' finals.

    The four Chinese WS: Li Xuerui - Wang Shixian and Wang Yihan - Sun Yu now have better draws, avoiding their compatriots in the very early rounds, and they are split evenly into the upper and lower half respectively.

    Li Xuerui will have chance for a revanche against Akane Yamaguchi in the 2nd round, replays of the 2015 Japan Open's QF and the 2015 Indonesia Open SSP's R16.

    Wang Shixian has relatively easy matches in the first two rounds, then a QF facing either Li Xuerui/Akane Yamaguchi.

    Wang Yihan will face Bae Yeon Ju in the 1st round; if she passes then she will have chance for a revanche against Yui Hashimoto in the 2nd round, a replay of the 2015 Indonesia Open SSP's semifinals.

    Sun Yu is eventually taking her chance to face a formidable opponent, two times WC, the WR#2, seeded #2 and the world's brightest ascending star, Carolina Marin in the first round... will be interesting to watch their current updates after their last encounter in the 2014 Bitburger Open in Nov 2014, will she be able to extend her lead here or it's Carolina Marin who narrows her H2H gap.

    Team China despatch Six WD Pairs incl. Zhao Yunlei

    .
    China are fielding overwhelming six WD pairs here:

    - Tian Qing [5]/Zhao Yunlei

    - Bao Yixin/Zhong Qianxin
    will face Chae Yoo Jung/Kim So Yeong in R1, an opportunity for revanche on the recent lost in Korea Open, lets see how good this Korean WD pair and other ones perform outside their home soil; if pass then they may face the recent Korea Open winner, INA WD #1, Nitya/Greysia in R2


    - Ma Jin [8]/Tang Yuanting

    - Huang Yaqiong/Tang Jinhua
    will face severe test in the first round vs the host hopeful: Christinna Pedersen [3]/Kamilla Rytter Juhl

    - Wang Xiaoli [4]/Yu Yang
    - Luo Ying [2]/Luo Yu

    Since the very reliable Zhao Yunlei is also playing WD here, just very slim chance that the WD title will slip away from Team China like in the recent Korea Open (SS) and the lesser Yonex Open Chinese Taipei (GPG).

    How is Lin Dan in the same half of the draw as Chen Long again?

    I think it is about time Lin Dan complains. It is straight three tournaments of them being together.

    All the more, doesn't it sound a tad convenient that the local favorite has none of the three legendary players- Chen Long (who of course couldn't have been with JOJ anyway), Lin Dan, and Lee Chong Wei.

    Are you suggesting that Den open organisers cheated on the draw?

    How is the actual drawing process being done?

    .
    I really wonder how are the so-called draws being done actually in each [major] tournaments [such as SS or SSP level]?

    Of course the applicable world rankings will affect the seeded positions and ensure such as seeded #1 and #2 will be placed in different half.

    But aside from this, are they pure luck that player X vs Z etc? Because many times we see players from the same NOC are packed in the same half, and they will have to face each other in the very early rounds: R1 or R2 and so on, eventually just one player from that NOC survives at the end of quarterfinals.

    Are they pure luck by draws being exercised transparently / openly / appropriately to ensure untampered outcomes, or is there anything else?

    Please someone in knowing tell us the general drawing process :p

    It has been quite a question for me since some time...

    This draw thing is fully scripted and well calculated within rules to provide Local players the most easy path to the business end of the tournament..You will see in China Open,both Chen Long and Lin D will be separated no matter what their respective rankings will be at that point of time....Ofcourse,99% people will say I am wrong but the remaining 1% like me speaks what the poor heart says.....

    Okay, it is not difficult to imagine any general arrangement like that. And I have no problem at all that ANY host will arrange as such to separate its top players into different half!

    But how about to put ALL the players from the SAME NOC in the same half AT SUCH that eventually just one player comes out "alive" at the end of quarterfinals?

    Can such arrangement be premeditated as well?

    You guys cansearch in previous thread, this topic had been discuss in great details, with people knowing how concretely it is made. The first 8 seeds are split in the draw, and the process is open and made with BWF officials if I remember correctly.

    Kento Momota has better draw this time after back to back JPN & KOR SS were drawn with Chen Long and Lin Dan.

    @ renbo, thx for your hint, may try to dig out the said archives at will the other time.

    I notice that they split the pairs of first eight seeded positions: #1-2, #3-4, #5-6 and #7-8 into different half, but this can be the only fixed part of the designation...
