I'm glad to see many of the top Chinese players registered for this tournament! This will make the tournament very competitive.
Good to see that Guo Zhendong is back. But very disappointed that Hong Wei is playing with Shen Ye again, instead of his new parter Chai Biao. Also very disappointed that Zhang Nan is absent from the MD. Disappointed that Zhao Yunlei/Cheng Shu are absent from the WD.
Interested that Hong Wei is playing the XD event with Tang Jinhua.

Very, very nice line-up.
Last year Kim/Kim put up a superb performance to win the MD.
But this year almost all Asian superstars are going at it. I really like it.
Ofc the most interesting thing is that Mr. Lin Dan is registered. If he plays we will finally see how much work he has to do to get back to his form or did he already trained that hard, that he is almost back to a good form?!
For me it is also a good sign that KO Sung Hyun starts to play Mixed (with Kim Ha Na) again. He is also registered for the India SS with Kim. Maybe it helps him to be more "relaxed" in MD with Lee.
Not sure what CHN is doing in the MD with the continues switching between the dangerous Hong/Chiao combination and the average (ofc on world top niveau) pairings Hong/Shen and Chiao/Guo.
