Dutch and German Junior 2012
From this year onwards, the points from these junior tourneys will be considered for seedings for the AJC & WJC.
PB Djarum and Jaya Raya are sending players to both tourneys (and the Banuinvest International as well for PB Djarum's players).
Kho Henrikho Wibowo
Reksy Aureza Megananda
Thomi Azizan Mahbub
Tri Ria Maya
Edi Subaktiar/Arya Maulana Aldiartama
Felix Kinalsal/Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo
Hafiz Faisal/Putra Eka Rhoma
Melati Daeva Oktaviani/Rosyta Eka Putri Sari
Malaysia and Hong Kong are also sending a strong team. Hong Kong will be with it's new BD pair of Lee Chun Hei/Tam Chun Hei. Both players have been exposed to GP, GPG, and even SS tourneys.
I am not sure why HKG didn't send Angus Ng Ka Long. He's still eligible for the AJC & WJC this year as he was born in 1994.

I hope Kho Hendrikho Wibowo can shine here and challenge Soong Joo Ven, Lim Chi Wing and Tam Chun Hei and also some Indian and europe juniors.
He is still quite inconsistent. can not show his true ability and potential. it makes many people underrated him.

I heard Angus Ng Ka Long is skipping the tournaments because he has to study for his school exams.
really looking forward to see some great matches again!

I thought the Dutch Junior organizers already finished the draw by Feb 22nd (as declared on their official website)... Does anyone have it yet? I just checked the tournamentsoftware site... nothing there...

Matches involving INA players
Reksy Aureza Megananda vs Arun George - a first match against an Indian youngster is always tricky and tough. Remember our AJC players lost to Indian players last year?
Thomi Azizan Mahbub vs Baptiste Roy - if Thomi can beat his first-round opponent, a match against another Indian player (Aditya Joshi) possibly awaits him in the next round.
Kalle Koljonen  vs Kho Henrikho Wibowo - hmm.....can Kho overcome the top seed in his first match?
Emily Westwood vs Leonila Josephine - if the Jaya Raya girl wins, she will face Marsha Lursen for a
place in the last 32.
Edi Subaktiar/Arya Maulana Aldiartama vs Calvin Ong Jia Hong/Tan Wee Gieen - bang....first round and already an anticipated match against the Malaysian pair.
Soo Teck Zhi/Soong Joo Ven vs Hafiz Faisal/Putra Eka Rhoma - another bang....wow 2 INA pairs vs 2 MAS pairs already in the first round. So, it could be tragedy for either INA or MAS. If Hafiz/Eka can beat the MAS pair, a date with the 3/4th seed Vincent de Vries/Jim Middleburg (Lukhi/Kevin beat them at the WJC last year) awaits them in R32.
Felix Kinalsal/Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo vs Rodian Kargaev/Sergey Sirant - only Felix/Kevin (out of the 3 BD pairs) are spared a match against the MAS pairs in the early round. I am not really sure what's the quality of the European seeded pairs here. Realistically, I expect them to progress to at least R16 and face the 5/8th seed Matthias Almer/Dominik Stipsits. Another MAS pair Darren Isaac Devadas/Tai An Khang (the winner of the Selangor Open title) could await the INA pair in the QF.
Tri Ria Maya vs Cheung Ying Mei
Nadia Fankhauser/Michelle Schar or Lynlette Aung/Natalie Chan-Lam vs Tri Ria Maya/Leonila Josephine.

Oh...forgot about another pair in GD and XD just now.
Myke Halkema/Gayle Mahulette [3/4] vs Melati Daeva Oktaviani/Rosyta Eka Putri Sari
Edi Subaktiar/Melati Daeva Oktaviani vs Ryan McCarthy/Sophie Sankey [5/8]
02-26-2012, 11:43 PM #9
wow... Edi/Arya face the current best MAS pair...
02-27-2012, 05:58 AM #10
Personally interested to follow Melati/Rosyita, Arya/Edi, Edi/Melati, Felix/Kevin and Hafiz/Putra here. Go Go Go!

The seeds are a bit off, they use the world junior ranking i think, and some of the Europeans rank highly in that so are seeded.

As expected, the seedings here are not done according to the strength and quality of the players.
Two seeded ENG XD pairs got beaten today by MAS and INA pairs respectively.
Edi Subaktiar/Melati Daeva Oktaviani progress to R32 and will face Aleksandr Zinchenko/Olga Morozova. If they do win that one, a MAS pair in Tan Wee Gieen/Yap Cheng Wen is likely to be their obstacle for a place in the QF. Let's see if they can reach QF first.
The Djarum boys and girls are likely to play 2 XD matches on Friday and possibly another 1 in their respective BD and GD respectively (if they win their matches), with a maximum of 3 for Edi/Melati.
Another 3 matches to be played in the opening day: 2 BS (Reksy Aureza Megananda and Thomi Azizan Mahbub) and 1 GS (Leonila Josephine) match. I expect all 3 to progress to R64, which will be played tomorrow.
For tomorrow, the 3 BD pairs will start their campaign. The match of the day will undoubtedly be the 2 matches against MAS pairs! Felix Kinalsal/Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo should advance.
In addition, Kho Henrikho Wibowo will also start his match against the top seed from Finland and Tri Ria Maya face a tough test against Cheung Ying Mei.

Reksy is leading Arun George 15-21, 21-19, 16-11 in game 3... oooh, 18-12 now in game 3...
Lesson to Indonesians: do not watch soccer (where we are trailing Bahrain 0-9)... just watch Badminton where we can beat Bahrain 5-0 in men, women, or mixed teams...
Ok, Reksy just won 15-21, 21-19, 21-15 over Arun George.
