Finnish International Challenge 2008
2 heavy-weight pairs in MD have withdrawn: Matthias Boe/Carsten Mogensen and Jens Eriksen/Martin Lundgaard Hansen.
That will pave the way for Fran Kurniawan/Rendra Wijaya (ranked 48) for another successful European tourney perhaps? They only have Tim Dettmann/Johannes Schoettler (ranked 30, beaten before), Wouter Claes/Frederic Mawet (ranked 37, beaten before) and Jacob Chemnitz/Mikkel Delbo Larsen (ranked 39, beaten before) ranked above them.
Men's Singles: Ari Yuli Wahyu Hartanto, Dynonisius Hayom Rumbaka (Q), Wisnu Haryo Putro (Q)
Men's Doubles: Fran Kurniawan/Rendra Wijaya
Women's Singles: Maria Elfira Christina, Sylvinna Kurniawan, Rosaria Yusfin Pungkasari
Women's Doubles: Meiliana Jauhari/Shendy Puspa Irawati
Mixed Doubles: Fran Kurniawan/Shendy Puspa Irawati

Yup, badMania... Fran-Rendra should now be seeded #4 and can very well become the Finnish Challenge champion!
In the WS draw, looks like it is an open field for Li Wenyan, Jang Soo Young, and the 3 INA WS [Pipin, Sylvi, Fira] to dominate this tournament...
The MS draw also looks pretty open for Wahyu, Hayom, Wisnu... But I think Wahyu will perform best... [unless he runs out of steam from playing many matches in Poland]... Hayom and Wisnu gets a lot of rest and practice time in Poland while preparing themselves for a good performance in Finland...

SF: vs possibly Tim Dettmann/Johannes Schoettler  or the pair who beat them yesterday Adam Cwalina/Wojciech Szkudlardcyzk
F: vs possibly Wouter Claes/Frederic Mawet  or Jacob Chemnitz/Mikkel Delbo Larsen

A bad draw for the WS players (except for Maria Elfira)
Anna Rice  vs Rosaria Yusfin Pungkasari
Jang Soo Young  vs Slyvinna Kurniawan
Kristina Ludikova vs Maria Elfira Christina
Ari Yuli Wahyu Hartanto vs Jurgen Koch -- a relatively tough draw too.
Wisnu Haryo Putro might face Taufiq Akbar Hidayat for a place in the main draw.
Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka has a chance to progress to main draw if he can beat Kristian Nielsen in the second round and possibly an English player in the last round.

Sylvinna beat Jang Soo Young twice in Malaysia & Macau

- Anna Rice is quite beatable by Pipin... We shall see...
- I'm not worried about our MS. They should do fine in Finland, actually...
- XD draw is good for Fran-Shendy. WD draw is good for Mel-Shendy...
