    But even higher ranked players like Boe and Mogensen, with good chance of at least getting into the finals... I'm sure they would contest

    It's just they don't believe, even if they won, that they get alot out of the tournament... the prize money, points and glory just isn't enough

    Hopefully next year's SS will encourage more European participation

    I just saw Xue Song's name among the MS qualifiers. Woo-hoo, I look forward to see him play. And Qiao Bin too.

    Xue Song is finally coming out to the world tour!

    Would like to see how he fairs against his Chinese veterans

    I guess Australia still not an important enough country to other nations
    I believe the players from these 2 nations are doing their obligation. Doesn't sound like Lee Chong Wei is happy being there.

    “Chong Wei’s next tournament is the Australian Open (April 2-7). He has to play because of sponsorship obligation. He is not playing the Axiata Cup. His wife is expecting and may deliver at the end of April or early May and he may skip the India Open (April 23-28). It all depends. Being a father will give him another new responsibility. But I believe he knows how to handle it.”

    With Lee Chong Wei and Taufik attending, our Australian/Oceania organisers and spectators are happy.

    But I have coaching sessions to conduct in Melbourne, therefore I need to stay back in Melbourne.

    I always give preference to my trainees first. I can catch up with Lee Chong Wei and Taufik Hidayat later.

    Yeah, anybody who can, tell us more about Xue Song. If I'm not wrong, he's still only 18 years old and yet CHN is introducing him to the regular (adult) international circuit which I thought it's a bit unusual.

    I happened to watch the replay of his game with Lin Dan in the CBSL in which he showed potential, played with verve and boldly attacking Lin Dan, sometimes giving as good as he gets, before going down fighting.

    The rest I read that he lost a close match to Kento Momota in the WJC final. Then in the Olympic Youth Festival held in Australia, I read that he won it by displaying explosive attacking badminton, literally smashing his way through his opponents one by one to the title.

    Not too sure about his defensive capabilities which is essential when his attacks peter out and his opponent goes on the counter-attack forcing him on the defensive. That one video of his game with Lin Dan may not be representative of his strengths and weaknesses.

    I am more excited to see many junior players from china taking part...especially Ou dong ni and Suo Di..they deserve more international exposures...
    I also love to see Chen QingChen/huang DongPing...this pair catch my attention since the first time I saw them last year...So Young and powerful

    Lightbulb 2013 Australian Open (Sydney BCers to give us reports/info)

    John, Catch up with me again on your next visit in Melbourne, and show me your photos. Better still, post some photos here (in this thread).

    BTW, I found an Illawarra Mercury newspaper report/result of the IBA Open Championships when you and Giona Sheare finished R/up to Weng and R.Robin in the Mixed Doubles event. I shall show you the newspaper clipping when I see you next.

    Remember that I am in Melbourne. It's better to leave it to Sydney BCers to give us reports/info; They are closer to the event.
