    Default Dutch Open

    Nice thing about the Dutch Open is that we can see a few different countries on the seeding list. I see Italy, Spain and Poland.

    Can only be good for our sport.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: the Dutch Open also has the best web solution of all tournaments...

    Or have I just missed it somewhere?

    Why can I see a.. Hendrawan AND Taufik Hidayat in the Qualificationtournament???

    Are they just name-look-a-likes or were they late with application or something like that???

    And for live-scoring :

    Eva, i was surprised as well about the participation of both players.
    It seems they are really playing.
    Maybe Hedrawan without the proper worldranking was late with the application and Taufik decided to join him on the trip ?

    HIDAYAT Taufiq Akbar

    Might have got the name wrong.

    Hendrawan was ranked somewhere around 60 at the moment

    The 2nd Taufiq is ranked much lower. Proabably got the spelling wrong.

    A club member who is also one of the officials at the tournament confirmed to me that it is indeed not THE Taufik Hidayat

    Does anyone know why Camilla Martin didn't play in this tournament considering that it's pretty close to home?

    I know that she's in for the upcoming Denmark Open right after this tourney.

    without the help from the linesmen, Lee HI lost to Yong Hock Kin. in 3 sets. (oh. that was mean.....)

    intereting line up for the quarter final.

    two danes, one german, two malaysians, one indian, one japanese and one dutch.

    and no indonesians!

    The #1 seed Ong lost in three sets to German Bjorn Joppien and similarily for #2 seed.

    Looking at the Qtr-finals, it might be possible for Malaysia to obtain an all Malaysian final but who knows.

    I wondered if Hendrawan will retire as he hasn't been doing too well lately.

    WS
    Looks like Mia Audina might be able to retain her title again.

    MD
    No big surprises in this event

    WD
    Wonder how Audina/Jonathans will do against the #1 seed as Audina is a singles specialist but has shown that she can play doubles as well (evident from her performance at the Uber Cup)

    XD
    Again no surprises here as most of the seeded teams are through.


    BTW, Kwun, wondered if Lee HI is going to wonder if he can ever win on his own without help from the line judges (okay, okay, that's really mean).

    It's indeed a poor result for Malaysia especially since they stand a very good chance of having a least 4 quarter-finalists, but ended up with only 2.
    Ok, Yong Hock Kin's loss may be acceptable as he's no longer a full time player...

    But Ong Ewe Hock's exit is an embarassing one, especially since he bow out to an unknown German.

    Lee Tsuen Seng does not appear to be in good form as he struggle to book his last 8 ticket.

    The best hope that all Malaysians can rely on is Wong Choong Hann.

    Lee TS might have a few problems against Joppien. Joppien has quite a crafty game taking all the pace off the shuttle and is quite tall as well.

    I'd give it 50-50 to either. Basically because Lee has to be well in form to win.

    Mxd - Hmm, I think Jonas and Rikke are going to win. (Hope that doesn't put any pressure on them!)

    I am prepared to give more confidence to Lee TS than just 50-50. Ong Ewe Hock can be a clown sometimes and that should not be used as a yardstick to determine Lee's chances. Anyhow, all the best to Lee, I am sure he will prevail if he play to his standard.
