    MS, 2011 WJ Champ Zulfadli Zulkiffli and 2012 WJ runner up Xue Song should be the major foreign challenge for local hope to shine here.

    WS, will Saina finally end her title drought in her homeground GP Gold?

    Main draw will kick off tomorrow, 09.00am, using 6 courts. MS will play twice, R/64 and R/32.

    For INA viewers STAR Sports will telecast LIVE on Saturday (semifinal) and Sunday (final) as it advertised.

    A whole bunch of youngsters from Malaysia are attending this GPG event. Wish them all the best.
    Quite a few from Indonesia and Thailand as well.
    And a few from India as well.

    I'll be rooting for H.S. Prannoy to break through and win the MS title.
    And Bella to do likewise and win the WS.
    And Pia to take home 2 titles in WD and XD
    The MD is anybody's guess. I think it will boil down to who plays with less mistakes on the day.

    Saina and sindhu , both were in terrible form last week. I am rooting for ruthvika to upset the chinese girl as well as saina to reach finals.
    Aswini/jwala for women's double crown. Will they be able to do it?.
    Manu attri/sumeet reddy for men's doubles.
    XD is anybody's game.

    PETALING JAYA: SEA Games women’s doubles champions Vivian Hoo-Woon Khe Wei had an underwhelming start to the year, losing in the first round of the Malaysian Open last week.

    Hopes were high on Vivian-Khe Wei to step up their performances after winning Malaysia’s first gold in badminton at the SEA Games since 2009 when they defeated the higher ranked Nitya Krishinda Maheshwari-Greysia Polii of Indonesia in Myanmar.

    But their deficiencies were severely exposed by a new combination from China – Ma Jin-Tang Yuanting.

    Now, the world No. 20 Malaysian pair are seeking to make amends when they compete in the India Open GP Gold, which starts on Wednesday at Lucknow.

    “I have to admit that we really didn’t play well during the Malaysian Open,” said the 23-year-old Vivian.
    “Because of that we are extra motivated to have a better outing in India and perform to our standards. After all, nobody likes to win only once.

    “The draw here is pretty decent for us as we do not meet any seeded combinations in the early rounds. We’re definitely hoping to go far.”
    The pair are seeded second in India and receive a first-round bye before facing local pair Jagriti Nashier-Jyoti Nashier in the second round.

    They should enjoy an easy run into the semi-finals, where they are tipped to meet fourth seeds Yu Xiaohan-Huang Yaqiong of China.
    “That young Chinese pair will definitely be our main threat right now. We’ve already lost to them once ... during the Macau Open last year,” said Vivian.

    “But they are not unbeatable and I believe we can definitely overcome them if we remain focused and stick to our game plan.”
    Besides Vivian-Khe Wei, two other pairs – Amelia Alicia Anscelly-Soong Fie Cho and Lee Meng Yean-Lim Yin Loo – are also in the fray.

    The India Open, which lacks several top names, will be the best venue for the budding men’s singles shuttlers to show what they are made of ... especially with world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei already hinting of retiring soon.

    Among the lot, reigning Asian Junior champion Soo Teck Zhi, who showed lots of potential en route to a gritty loss to compatriot Iskandar Zulkarnian Zainuddin in the Malaysian Open, will be expected to rise to the occasion.

    The lanky 18-year-old will face India’s Deepak Khatri in the first round. A win will pit him against second seed Ajay Jayaram, also of India.

    The others hoping to make their mark will be Iskandar, Goh Soon Huat, Soong Joo Ven, Chong Yee Han, Tan Kian Meng, Nur Mohd Azriyn Ayub and former world junior champion Zulfadli Zulkiffli.

    In MD I'm rooting Frans Kurniawan/Bona Septano. Their partnering has potential, I think. They played quite well in the Malaysia Open last week. They unfortunately lost to LYD/YYS in the second round. I think the main threat will be coming from the reigning world junior gold and silver medallists from China.

    Some potential candidates of bottom half draw are his compatriots, Jayaram, Varma, Pawar plus China youngster Xue Song.

    In the MS section, most of the matches promise to be thrillers:
    Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin vs Anand Pawer
    HS Prannoy vs Chetan Anand
    P Kashyap vs Zulfadi Zukiffli
    K Srikanth vs Arvind Bhat
    Song Xue vs Sourabh Varma
    Gurusaidutt vs Sai Praneeth

    In the XD:
    Tan Aik Quan & Lai Pei Jing (Malaysia) beat K Nandagopal & Siki Reddy N
    21-17 21-14

    That's a good result for the Malaysian pair.
    Btw, K Nandagopal is K Srikanth's brother.

    On paper, the Indian lad is better than the Malaysian lad.
    Aditya Prakash is from Padukone's Academy but is not yet frontline material.
    And he is also fresh from a ranking tournament that finished around 10 days ago (he reached the semifinals).

    For this match, I'd put my money on him.
