Read the news here :
Syed Modi Grand Prix badminton from Dec 20
Lucknow, Dec 18 : World top shuttlers would be seen in action during the Yonex Sunrise Syed Modi Memorial 3rd International Grand Prix Gold Badminton Championship to be held here from December 20 to 25.
While the Indian challenge would be spearheaded by World No-4 Saina Nehwal, who has seeded the top rank in this tournment in the women section, and in the Mensingles Simon Santosa and Taufik Hidayat, both of Indonesia, have been seeded on the top.
Indian pair of Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa have been seeded third in the Women's doubles while Jawla pairing with Diju V have been seeded fourth in the mixed doubles event.
This international tournament will be important for all the players as it would give them points to qualify for the next year's London Olympics. Doordarshan Sports channel would telecast live the entire tournament every day from 1400 hrs to 2000 hrs.
However the tournament would miss the shuttlers from China and Korea, as players from both the countries are pre-occupied with international tourney in their own countries.
UP Badminton Association(UPBA) president Kunwar Fateh Bahadur said here that this year the championship has been raised to the status of Grand Prix Gold with a prize money of USD 1,20,000.
UPBA vice-president T P S Puri said Lucknow is expected to be alloted World Super Series in 2014 whose prize money would be USD 2,00,000.
Around 275 players from 32 countries, representing all the five continents would participate in this six day championship which has 178 players in the main draw and 38 in the qualifying draw.
The tournament will have five events in Men's singles, Women's singles, Men's doubles, Women's doubles and mixed doubles. (UNI)

I usually watch it from my satelite TV not from livestream.
But, during India Challenge few days ago, they found the livestream for DD Sports channel : http://www.livetvchannelsfree.in/

I am not sure whether the streaming is working or not as i didn't watch from livestream, but look like it is OK as they can livestream during India IC

India Open GPG has LiveScore available even on Qualifying day.
At least in this respect, the India Open GPG is more well organised than the Korea Open GPG.

I see MAS is sending many national backup players and ZZ is also entered.
Now the backup players will have to prove themselves against ZZ if they should meet.

I think the MAS and INA players must have chartered a flight or two! There must be 500 of them at this tournament!!
Notable trivia: Simon Santoso is #1 seed, Taufik is #2 seed. Who would've ever thought....

Nights in Toronto nowadays go down to -5 or thereabouts, so it's not too bad. Just one solitary morning of snow, yet. The real heavy weather begins January, and I can tell you it will get uncomfortable! Nothing compared to the more northerly cities though...
I am indeed a night-bird. The solitary hours help with my work...
