LD will take on world junior champ Kento Momota in first match here.
Then, barring any upsets TH and LCW will be his opponent in preliminaries round, R/32 and R/16 respectively.

Tommy once again will face Chen Long at R/32.
TH won INA Open 6 times (1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006).

This is interesting, see if TH will like to have LD or LCW (if he fight hard to get pass LD) as his last opponent in a formal tournament of his badminton career.
Or is LD keen to be TH's last opponent or not (if he could not even pass the qualification rounds )?

What a draw, TH's farewell tournament,his swan song, and he has to face Lin Dan in R1. Sigh for both of them.

if this is Lin Dan to face P Gade's last match at the Danish Open I'm fairly confident that he will "let it go" as a gift to Peter.
Since this will be TH's last t'ment at home as well, will LD also "let it go"?
I'll say 50/50 chance he will.
First, I'm sure they both respect each other as the best of their time so why not let TH has his last glory at home, and with possible LCW waiting at the second round it wouldn't be that appetising for LD either.

I also think LD will give the match to TH. Probably LCW will do the same. People come to say farewell to TH, and they don't want to ruin the party.
