    Default Lee and world’s top shuttlers to play at OUE S’pore Open

    By Dan Guen Chin

    Published: February 28, 9:20 PM


    SINGAPORE - The OUE Singapore Open 2014, which will be held from April 8-13 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, is expected to feature most of the world’s top players in action at the US$300,000 championship, incuding men’s world No 1 Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia.

    As the two-time All-England champion and double Olympic silver medallist confirmed his decision to play in Singapore today after a three-year absence (Lee, the 2008 champion, lost in the quarter-finals in 2010), so have the badminton bodies of South Korea, Japan and Indonesia sent their full squads at this year’s US$300,000 tournament.

    The latest development has buoyed the Singapore Badminton Association’s confidence that thsi year’s Singapore Open will be filled with top-ranked stars.

    “Of course we cannot attract all the very best to the meet but I am confident that we can have 70 per cent of the world’s top ranked players in Singapore. And that’s good enough to add glamour and competitiveness to the championship,” said organising chairman Lee Yoke Weng.

    Reigning men’s singles champion and world No 3 Tommy Sugiarto of Indonesia, will return to defend his crown. Current world No. 5 Kenichi Tago of Japan, and compatriot Kento Momota, the 2012 world junior champion are also in the fray. Likewise Thailand’s Boonsak Polsana (No 6) and China’s Du Pengyu (No. 7).

    The only notable absentee is China’s Chen Long.

    The world No 2 and heir apparent to Lin Dan, the two-time Olympic gold medallist, is not in the list submmited by the Chinese Badminton Association. Chen, 25, is the reigning All-England champion and the winner of the Korean Open in January where he beat Malaysia’s Lee in the final.

    World No 3 men’s doubles pair Kenichi Hayakawa and Hiroyuki Endo and the top Korean partnership of Ko Sung Hyun and Shin Baek Choei have signed up too to do battle with the world’s No 1 men’s doubles pair of Hendra Setiawan and Mohammad Ahsan of Indonesia.

    In the women’s singles, the world’s top two of Wang Yihan and Li Xuerui of China will face competition from South Korea’s Sung Ji Hyun and Bae Yeon Ju, who are currently ranked World No. 5 and 6 respectively.

    “It is going to be exciting to see so many top players confirming their participation and I am sure the competition will be keen,” said SBA’s Lee.

    He added that the SBA is also looking forward to the participation of top shuttlers from Denmark.

    “Traditionally Denmark has always been here and supportive of the Singapore Open and I hope it will be the same this year,” he said.

    Top Danish players include men’s world No 4 Jan Jorgensen, Casten Mogensen and Mathias Boe, who are also ranked fourth in the men’s doubles, and Kamila Juhl and Christina Pedersen who are No 2 in the women’s doubles behind China’s Wang Xioli and Yu Yang.

    Especially for seniors like me.
    But booking fee of $7.50 is hefty.

    Online booking seems rather busy at the moment and I still can't confirm my booking.

    Very short time to March 7 for early birds! Better hurry up to enjoy discounts

    I almost bought the Premier Season tickets.
    Well, almost.

    A buddy called to warn me that, unlike in previous years, the seat numbers are fixed.
    This means that even if the seats facing an ongoing match are empty, you won't be able to sit there.
    You would have to remain in your fixed seat number and watch the match from there!

    Since that is not a very encouraging prospect, I've decided to settle for the free seats on my TV couch

    I think your last option is the best. However I'm not sure whether it also applies to Cat B. But the hefty booking fee is a big 41% slice of my season ticket price! Doesn't make much sense to charge so much more than before just for booking.

    I'm 'moved' to stay fixed on my TV couch and forget all the hassle!

    Unfortunately no chance to meet up with Bobby again.

    I have to confirm whether they are really charging $7.50 booking fee for the Early Bird Season Ticket but still can't get through to them by phone.

    I bought my early bird Cat B season ticket last Sat. The seats are fixed throughout the tournament. Price is reasonable esepcially for kids ticket but $7.50 booking fee is a big rip off. Imagine booking fee is more expensive than early bird Ct B kid ticket of $3!

    I totally agree and that's why some senior citizens like me are not too happy having to pay up to about 40% more just for booking. It was much more reasonable the last time by SISTIC.

    Unfortunately with the new Sports Hub Tix setup, it is a monopoly and they can charge unreasonable fees such as this. There is no competition and it is no good for badminton fans like us!

    I may have to give this Open a miss and watch on TV like some BCers here do.

    This SG open , has 90% of the top players. Consider a very rare occasion. Quite lucky that SG OPEN were to bring forward, if it was on june back to back with indo open. I don't think the attendance will be as good as now.

    Agree but this is not the time to cut people's throat with exhorbitant booking fee for the early bird.

    120 compared v 200 is a lot diff. So I don't really care about the booking fee. Since im going for the premium. Hope to see lcw in action LIVE before he retires. Not much chances to see him in live action ><
