Home shuttlers certain to win MxD - I will place a bet on it.
Surprised not many other countries enter. After all, it is still in Asia - ....

What's the greatest tournament!
Came one and a half japanese, zero and a half chinese, and even Misha Zilberman seeded second!
First two seeds even didnt get any opponent.
Single japanese man, probably coming to the tournament swimming daily from the home and back, won at the very first round at the very strong Russian man.
What's going on. I said Vladivostok is too-who-knows-where's-this

Is this really an international tournament?
All I see the Russian players haha... I don't think even the GP status will stay for long... So less players and merely 10 different nations participating...

Possible all JPN final for WS category, home shuttlers stay on course to sweep all 3 doubles titles.

pity that this tournament is facing the perfect storm.
isolated somewhere geographically due to transportation and unknown land.
only GP status
just a month before olympics
the location is indeed interesting because it is right between N. Korea and Japan.
i do wonder how many flights there are to that location each day?

It has been held in Vladivostok for the last couple of years already and never attracted many players. Probably they have a 3 or more year deal to hold it there? Last year Ikeda/Shiota were there and more JPN but not much else ... They might have thought it would attract more Asian players on that side of Russia but the scheduling is not the best on the calendar, particularly this year the qualifying period has already finished so no desperados attending.

Well, for the Final, only the MS is assured of different nation contesting.
1) WS: Japan vs Japan
2) MD, WD & XD: Russia vs Russia.
Not very interesting for badminton fans . . . .

Japan scoops 2 titles in singles discipline through Kazumasa Sakai and Hashimoto Yui. As predicted home players rule MD, WD and XD.
