At the 2013 BAC we have a very colourful mosaic....
Mongolia and Jordan have 4 players each. So do Afghanistan and Cambodia. And Bangladesh.
Uzbekistan has 5 players! So does beautiful Maldives. However, Bahrain and Kazakhstan each have only 2 players. Ethereal Nepal has 2 players, Tamang Ratnajit and Tamang Sara Devi. Are they siblings?
Philippines have a strong contingent of 15 players. I'd like to think Rexy Mainaky had a hand to play in their present condition. The amazing siblings Malvinne and Mark Alcala are very much present!
Sri Lanka is another land of skilful and exciting players who have never quite made the impact they look like they're always about to make. Who knows, maybe it will be this time around, with the 4 players they have sent...
Apart from all these, are a few players from lesser-known countries such as China, Indonesia, Malaysia, S Korea, Japan, Thailand, Chinese Taipei, Singapore, India, Vietnam....
This promises to be a fun week. I think they should rename this event the "Badminton Asia Festival."

Starting from R1, every player who has the good fortune to meet Lin Dan will also have a realistic chance of beating him as well. As Tey Seu Bok said Lin Dan will probably be at 80% of his best, so all the best to his opponents, make the most of it.

I am able to see another japanese teenanger here, Aya Ohori. Its very interesting. She is just 16. Definitely she should be something, otherwise, japan would not send teenagers continuously. In the NewZealand open last week, we were able to find one more teenager who is just 15. My goodness. Like Thailand, japan has started to produce many youngsters .. Tomorrow, Aya is going to meet her compatriot and tough nut Eriko hirose in the first round. If she clears her, definitely, she should be fantastic.. Lets see how she does tomorrow.

Chen Long is super strong right now, it may not be enough a 100% Lin Dan to win him.

INA will be represented by junior players in MS, one of which (Ihsan) will probably be also selected for AJC & WJC this year:
Panji Akbar Sudrajat
Thomi Azizan Mahbub - he has the best draw and will possibly progress to R16!
Shesar Hiren Rhustavito
Ihsan Maulana Mustofa
As for WS, MD and WD, INA representatives will have tough draws and it's possible they will all lose today.
In XD, 1 top pair is sent by PBSI: Fran Kurniawan/Shendy Puspa Irawati , while Markis Kido/Pia Zebadiah Bernadeth  will have tough matches tomorrow (esp for Kido/Pia possibly against another scratch pairing from CHN). The other 2 pairs sent by PBSI are Lukhi Apri Nugroho/Annisa Saufika (winner of Osaka IC 2013) and the newly formed Edi Subaktiar/Gloria Emanuelle Widjaja (both were WJC winners in XD)
I heard that Annisa Saufika is a good player and she might play in both WD and XD. Lukhi/Annisa are expected to reach R16.
