I don't think interests on this tourney will be high. At least I would have 1 week of rest Next week's NZ Open is quite relaxing as well since only a few INA players are involved.

The Asians want to save their money for tournaments within the Asian continent this time... The US$ exchange rate is killing most of our Asian currencies... Ticket prices to Moscow are just too high for a single GP level tournament...

Today's qualification will stage MS, WS, XD matches between local players and small number of Ukrainian shuttlers. This GP tourney is full of lesser known names with Dicky Palyama and Pi Hongyan as MS and WS top-seed respectively.
