    Thumbs up 2009 Australian Open Grand Prix at MSAC: 22-26 July 2009

    .
    This is highest prize money offered in a Badminton tournament held in Australia.
    Let's hope it would attract more international players to participate.

    You are right. It is attractive. Because it also can be played back to back with the New Zealand Open GP... With 2 GPs in a row, the trip to this part of the world will become more worth it (a possibility to collect a total of 10000 ranking pts and around US$8000 for a MS winner)...

    Yes, I was in Sydney before I came to Melbourne.

    and also increase the exposure and popularity of badminton in these two countries! take over AFL (and rugby, as is in NZ) as the #1 sport

    I have not seen a single publication that describe this 2009 Australian Open GP as a KLRC sponsored tournament... so, my best guess is: no.

    I would devide the INA players to 'those who can win a GP' and 'those who should win an International Challenge first'...

    'Those who can win a GP' should go to Australia Open GP and NZ Open GP:
    Andre Kurniawan Tedjono
    Tommy Sugiarto
    Maria Febe
    Rizal-Debby
    Tantowi-Richi
    Fran-Pia
    Greysia-Nintya
    Edo-Lingga
    Wifqi-Alfiat (in the borderline)
    These players have won [at worst... one] BWF level 4 tournaments in the past, so it is time they win many BWF level 3 tournaments...

    'Those who should win an International Challenge first' should go to Laos International Challenge and Indonesia International Challenge :
    Nugroho Andi Saputro
    Yoga
    Hayom
    Bandar Sigit
    Andreas Adityawarman
    Lindaweni
    Aprillia
    Fransisca Ratnasari
    Rizky-Albert
    Etc.

    Well, this is my logic...

    Nothing much on the official site as yet (or rather I presume that this IS the official site, if there is any).

    http://www.badminton.org.au/index.php?id=79

    Would it be a good idea to get together Melbourne-based BCers to go watch the event together? Suppose it'd be easier to convince people once the draw is out.

    hi george, nice to see you here. actually, it's more like the other way round... using badminton to get used to melbourne

    let me know if you have any info of entries to this tournament. my guess is that there shall be some KLRC players coming over.

    entries close tomorrow for the Aus Open Grand Prix, so you won't be seeing the draw for a while yet. i hear that the organisers are expecting a decent amount of good (well, better than the usual bunch we see in international tournaments here) players considering that this is the first time a Grand-Prix-level event has been held in Australia. Yonex has been confirmed as the official sponsor of the $US50,000 event, you can read more about it here at the Badminton Australia website: www.badminton.org.au
