    DRAW date : 18th August 2015

    Impressive entries as usual for SS level to collect ranking points toward Rio 2016. MS defending champion Lee CW must crawling from qualification due to his low WR.

    WD Olympic Champion has been separated, Tian Qing/Tang Jinhua who succeeded to bag INA Premier title last June while Zhao Yunlei will try new partnership with Zhong Qianxin.

    The Korean girls are switched around once more... I thought Jang Ye Na/Jung Kyun Eun could click, but got seperated now. Looking forward to see Eom regularly!
    All Korean men are now playing MX again.

    Chinese girls are also used in new combinations.
    The Lu/Liu combination in MD does not continue as Cai plays with Lu again (as well as in the WC).

    I really wonder when the head coaches make their final decisions towards the qualification period... Well, China has the luxury that most pairs can reacht top 10 within 5-7 tournaments :p

    I don't really watch WD and MX much but Eom is one of the most fun to watch women players I have seen. Especially in the MX 2014 China Open with YYS.

    Draw is released.

    1)Prannoy may meet JOJ in the second round. He has 3-0 h2h with joj.

    2)LCW has to come from qualifiers. Unfortunate for Sai Praneeth. Has to meet LCW in the qualifiers. Last time he took one game from LCW. Hope he plays well.

    Even if he qualifies, LCW has to meet Lindan in 2nd round and Chen Long in quarterfinals and probably Kento momoto in the semis.

    3)Srikanth has to meet Kashyap in the second round and probably CTC/ Tanongsak in the quarters.

    4) Similarly all the Denmark players are slotted to meet before quarters.

    Srikanth vs scott evans not jonathan cristie. Jonathan has to battle out in qualifiers first. He has kenta nishimoto in the first round. Not an easy opponent and later ginting anthony in the second round . If he comes out successfully, he has to meet hans kritien vittinghus not srikanth.

    Easy MS draw for India. We should have received this for the WC :-(
    Toughie for WS/WD.
    Sad that MD pairs are skipping this one.

    KS, if he plays to potential is a shoo in for the final. Good that all the big three are bunched up together in the same quarter.

    looks like LCW's low ranking made him hard to win further in this tournament as he will start from qualifying round till R16 where he gonna meet none other than super god Lin Dan, even LCW beat LD, he will face CL in QF, so for LCW is gonna gg liao...

    Not an easy one. All the Denmark players are in the bottom half. All of them are in top 10. Including CTC and Tanongsak etc. Prannoy should meet JOJ in the 2nd round. Tough luck. He is just now recovering from injury. Again he was slotted to meet JOJ. Prannoy got injured when he played JOJ and won him.

    Better JOJ/VA/HKV/Tanongsak/CTC than any of the big three+Momo.

    Fairly even draw; Top Half should be fine for Chen Long. Lin Dan the only real yellow flag. Maybe Son Wan Ho if this was 2013-2014 but he's out of form so shouldn't be a problem. Pre-WC I would say KM could be dangerous but he was dismantled pretty easily in Semi finals.

    Bottom half less balanced, JOJ and VA may meet in SF; that will be an interesting part of the draw. SK has the easiest, should reach the SF easily.

    JOJ and VA , if proceeded without problem, they are slotted to meet in QF. Not semis.

    The forthcoming super series will be a herculean task and tough competition among players from China itself to qualify for the Olympics to represent China. I think rest of the world can focus on the tournament :D

    Esp. WS, which is the biggest problem. LXR, WSX and SY will meet very early.

    XD - will be very tough to choose the second pair.
    MD - will be very tough to choose two teams. I think Fu Haifeng/Nan Zhang will be through.
    WD - I think this will be somewhat easy compared to the above two.
    MS - Hopefully, Lindan will make it as the second qualifier from China.

    and the toughest of all is

    WS - China might be very much concerned and confused as whom to send :D. The forthcoming superseries ( including this one ) will be the decider.

    Will LCW vs LD encounter happen atleast in this tournament ? Why LCW need to qualify ? His ranking must been improved post World championships. Is he still seeded 44 ?
