    most of the teams have arrived.

    the french, chinese, indonesian squad was spotted lounging at the official team hotel. pi hongyan & taufik were most hounded for interviews.

    did not notice any HK players though.

    the japanese had an afternoon training session and were joined by the malaysian singles players. MAS split their training sessions for the singles players and later in the day for the dbls players - infact they were still practising when i left the stadium

    the indian squad had a long training session at the gopichand academy which just a couple of km's from the venue.

    Cool, single seat venue instead of long benches. Pretty good.

    Too bad there are only about 10 rows of seats, no wonder total capacity is so low .....

    thanx kwun,

    actually am at the stadium right now watching the malaysians sweat it out, they have been here for the last hour and half as most of them are in action tomorrow.

    the japanese male players are practising with them.

    the chinese squad finished their session mid afternoon after the qualifying matches...

    BTW, Avataar, how are tickets selling at the India Open? Good reception?

    Hi avataar,

    I am thinking of coming to watch the matches after work at around 5 PM. When are the matches ending? It would be great if you could give me this info. Thanks!
