    Only Carolina Marin will defend her title in one of this Asia's popular tourist destination city, last chance for shuttlers to gain crucial point toward Dubai Superseries Finals in upcoming December.

    With two top-ranked Lee Chong Wei and Chen Long have withdrawn, newly-crowned China Open champion Jan O Jorgensen will be strong favorite to continue good run here, the remaining seeded players in the fray are Son Wan Ho, Tian Houwei, Chou Tien Chen, recent Denmark Premier winner Tanongsak and Englishman Rajiv Ouseph. Home players, Angus Ng Ka Long who cruised into semifinal last year, Wei Nan, Hu Yun and Vincent Wong Wing Ki will pose dangerous darkhorses that may derail the scenario also the evergreen Lee Hyun Il. China young guns will be represented by Shi Yuqi, Qiao Bin and Huang Yuxiang.

    The Olympic Champion Carolina Marin has Thailand rival at opening round, Busanan Ongbamrungphan also former champion Saina Nehwal who will take on once again Porntip Buranaprasertsuk after previous week China Open. Fourth seed Tai Tzu Ying has challenging opponent too at first round, Minatsu Mitani. No China representative in this category as Sun Yu and He Bingjiao pulled out. On quarterfinal scenario, Marin is slated to meet Akane Yamaguchi and Tai Tzu Ying has possible meeting with Aya Ohori. On lower-half of draw, an intriguing clash may happen in last sixteen, rematch of last week Fuzhou encounter between Sung Ji Hyun and P.V. Sindhu.

    Top seed Goh VS/Tan WK will take on European foe at opening round Astrup/Rasmussen also second seed as well Chai/Hong have Rio bronze medalists Ellis/Langridge, a repetition of Rio OG semifinal match. Other contenders, Boe/Mogensen, Li JH/Liu YC, Gideon/Sukamuljo, Ivanov/Sozonov should have no problem to clear first hurdle. Women's doubles will see competitive rivalry as almost all elite combinations taking part here, current best duo Matsutomo/Takahashi, Rio silver and bronze medalist, Juhl/Pedersen and Jung KE/Shin SC, last week China Open winner Chang YN/Lee SH. China new hopefuls Chen QC/Jia YF have chance to take revenge over Tanaka/Yonemoto tomorrow, the Japanese knocked out them at homeground Superseries.

    In mixed doubles category, Ko SH/Kim HN has complicated test to pass first round, local fresh pair Tang CM/Tse YS, current runner up of THA GP Gold and TPE Masters GP winner. Another seeded pair also have tough opponent at very early round, Chan PS/Goh LY will face Korean experienced Yoo YS/Chang YN. Misaki Matsutomo starts to play mixed doubles here with new partner Yugo Kobayashi, China also produces two experimenting pairs, Liu Cheng/Li Yinhui and Zhang Nan/Huang Dongping.

    Nozomi Okuhara and RI have withdrawn.. RI withdrawn from a 4th consecutive SS, and NO from her 3rd consecutive; having withdrawn from 6 SS tournaments this year :/ As a result she will most likely fail to qualify for the SS finals where she is the defending champion..

    WS definitely going through some kind of crisis. Let's hope we see a better turnout next year. Really missing watching LXR and top-shape SN, RI, NO.Although it's great to see some new faces /

    The ever enthusiatic Viktor Axelsen has also withdrawn. According to his instagram account he is taking a week's rest. Most likely we will see a new face as MS champion unless JOJ strikes gold twice.

    Axelsen had withdrawn on 28th October before BWF conducted the draw => http://system.bwfbadminton.com/uploads/2016/10/31/Hong Kong Open SS 2016 - MQ Ver 3.xlsx

    MS underdogs should capitalise this rare opportunity in the absence of current world's top 4. New Superseries champion emerged in Odense and Paris recently, it's interesting stuff whether we'll see the same outcome here.

    It's good to see new faces on the highest podium.
    It used to be always LCW.

    Should this tournament be degraded to a GPG level ?

    @Cheung......It suffers a lot from the CHN SSP.

    i really hope Ihsan can pass the 1st round vs. Huang Yuxiang and then face unfortunately to meet Anthony Ginting if he can beat Ajay Jayaram.
    Why did Jojo withdraw; He should have waited a bit because LCW also withdrew :(

    The doubles categories are still competitive, leaving MS in 'abnormal' situation here due to some top names withdrawals and I believe it will be back to normal in All England 2017. It's interesting to wait what will happen next, will the promising youngsters shine and steal the limelight in 2017?

    Jonatan suffered thigh injury from Europe tour last month according to PBSI official twitter, he also will pull out in Macau Open next week.

    it fulfils all tbe requirements of a Superseries :) They are very careful to fulfil the requirements that BWF demands and also have total prize money comfortably above the minimum amount needed for a Superseries.

    You will have to make a more convincing argument about degrading it. :)

    Just because some of the old guards and old faces withdrawn doesn't mean the new guards and newer faces aren't as good or not able to rise to the occasion.

    Post-Rio'16, I already see several of them taking up the mantle and even pushing out some of the old guards around, this is clearly happening in all the five disciplines, and, perhaps, in MS, LCW and Chen Long (when he returns to form) and in WS, LXR, can stave off the challenge.

    ROUND OF 32 (09.00am) => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...F3D6BB-D4E1-4185-840A-8619D6F86854&d=20161123

    Mixed doubles first round witnessed top-seed Ko SH/Kim HN and Rio silver medalist Chan PS/Goh LY ended their Hong Kong journey yesterday. Ko/Kim were shocked by potential local combination Tang CM/Tse YS while the Malaysian found Yoo YS/Chang YN were too hot to handle. Other top contenders, the Olympic Champion Ahmad/Natsir, second seed Jordan/Susanto, current world #2 Zheng SW/Chen QC cleared opening hurdle convincingly, the four remaining XD matches will be continued today.

    Two Japanese MS were qualified to main draw, Takuma Ueda and Riichi Takeshita also home player Lee Cheuk Yiu and Taiwanese Lin Yu Hsien. In WS category, two INA players Jesica Muljati, Vehrenica Debora Rumate alongside TPE Tang Wan Yi and home hopeful Yeung Sum Yee fill main draw slot.

    If Jan O Jorgensen manage to reach final stage at #HongkongSS, he will become BWF World No.2 and degrade Chen Long to 3rd place.

    Jan O Jorgensen
    73.662 QF
    75.042 SF
    76.422 RU
    77.822 Champ

    Chen Long
    76.144

    Lee Chong Wei
    79.563

    LCW still secure at No.1 and the race will continue at Dubai SSF to proof the one who deserve to be No.1
