Finnish Open 2012
The 2012 Finnish open will feature a number of Malaysian Youngsters, therefore I'm surprised there is no thread for it. Let's see how they get on.
Draws are below:

Probably the finals will be shown on Astro so looking forward to the usual vids Thx!! ...
One hour will also be shown on Finnish tv so I can probably ask someone to record but conversion and upload can take a while (so I might not bother to ask since the match will probably not interest me and BE.tv will also show it)

Most of the Malaysian Back Up players withdrew because of the Axiata Cup, people like Misbun and Iskandar no longer in the draw (despite a decent chance of doing well) only Loh and Goh remain. And Goh had a tough start tomorrow.

After Robertson/Wallwork triumphant in Polish IC last week, WC silver medalist Adcock/Bankier also has bright chance to win here

Malaysian Juniors again proving they have the talent to cause trouble, but as usual absolutely no stamina again to get over the finish line.
Rajiv Ouseph vs Goh Soon Huat 17-21 21-18 21-4

The draws are not really full, just counted: Today there are 18 walkovers...

Olympic Qualifying chances for Nathan/Jenny go to 0% after their withdrawal from the draw. It is impossible for Chris/Imogen not to pick up the 4000 points here, as all pairs left rarely make it past the 1st round of a IC event...

Interesting MD to follow in the race to London with two direct competitors from ENG and RUS; ENG pair with much more room for improvement in ranking points left ...
And the 3rd horse in the race has pulled out at SF stage, POL md. But only the title would improve their and RUS' points total.
According to renzo.ch's page both POL and RUS are in qualifying position atm ...

Considering the problems that Michelle Li faces with Badminton, you have to admit she has improved a lot, and has the potential to cause problems for the top players.
