    Sadly not a first.
    If no Aussies win against overseas opponents this will make at least 2 years in a row. I would need to check to confirm if its in fact 3 years dating back to when the tournament was only a grand prix status.


    Big changes required to player pathways in Aust. There is some talent but there are very strange decisions made at the top of the sport in regards to nurturing it.

    In Badminton, rewards are only in US$hundreds or very low US$thousands a year.

    BTW, while our AUS seniors are at the Australian Open, our juniors are at the 2013 June Bevan Trophy (under 17 event).

    So far, Australia is doing well against New Zealand. Here are some results:

    .
    The coaching in Aus is also not up to standard hence why players go overseas to like Malaysia etc to get proper training so they become mildly successful.
    The work ethic of AUS players cannot compared to the more professional and focused ethics of other countries like e.g. Japan.

    The new Thai players are generally not to be under-estimated anymore. I think Jindapon will go far in this tournament, more than Sapsiree. Likewise for the JAP players; I'm watching how Sayaka Takahashi will fare here. Lindaweni of course is one of the faves but she is up against Yui Hashimoto afterwards, a tricky proposition. Pai Hsiao Ma can do well too.

    Xue Song did well to overcome Sakai in two sets and finds himself facing Taufik tomorrow,well. As expected, Qiao Bin had a close two-set win against Hsu Jen Hao. Guo Kai whom I don't fancy actually beat Park Sung Min by taking the next 9 pts from 12-19 down to take the match, incredible, but tomorrow he's up against Viet Warrior NTM, the second-worst opponent to have in this event. Tian Houwei knocking out Abdul Latif is a surprise for me;anyway, I'm quite sure Simon will stop him tomorrow.

    Deng Xuan seemed to have a hard time beating Lydia. For me, Sonia Chia is MAS best hope in WS.

    CHN WD Chen Qingchen/Huang Dongping beating the KOR Jang Ye Na/ Kim So Young, the 5th seed, is a big surprise to me.

    But for later events (Finals, Semi-Finals, etc,...), tickets could be sold out already.
    .
    YES you can buy at the venue there is tixtek booth just infront of main entrance hall 3.
    and as of yesterday, there are still tickets for final, i dont think they will be sold out. quite expensive and this is sydney not asian city where not so many people want to watch badminton.

    Not true. Mixed doubles pair Luke Chong and Talia Saunders beat their New Zealand opposition.

    A close shave for Lindaweni, what a scare from the unknown KOR Kang Hae Won.

    Still no livestream, anyone? TIA.

    Just being cheeky but a win is a win.
    Its obvious our local talent are just there to make up the numbers but its good for them to test themselves. I mean, who wouldn't jump at the chance to play some of the best in the world at home.

    No for sure I agree with you, I'd want the opportunity too!
