    2010 Australian Badminton Open GP: Players participating

    .
    Just found mail about some info of players participating (released on 23-Jun-2010);


    Total number of Countries participating: 17 as follows:
    Australia, England, France, Ghana, Indonesia, Iraq, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mauritius, New
    Zealand, Pakistan, Scotland, Singapore, USA, Vietnam and Wales.


    The men’s singles is the strongest event with 59 entries. Tien Minh Nguyen from Vietnam
    heads the field, currently ranked at No.7 in the world. Tien Minh will be competing in the
    Singapore and Indonesia Super Series before heading to Melbourne for the Australian Open
    GP. In 2009 he was the winner of the Thailand GP Gold and Chinese Taipei GP Gold events.


    Also in the MS will be the newly crowned winner of the Indian GP Gold played last week in
    Chennai, India. The winner Yunus Alamsyah, from Indonesia, had to beat a number of top
    players to win his first GP event. Alamsyah will certainly be aiming to win the Australian Open
    title having tasted defeat by his fellow countryman Dionysius Rumbaka at last year’s Australian
    Open.


    Other notable entries in the MS includes Malaysian Lee Tsuen Seng former winner of the NZ
    Open and other Grand Prix events, Yogendran Krishnan who won the Altona Future Series
    back in April, Malaysian top junior Zulfadi Zulkiffli, Raj Popat from Wales, Alistair Casey from
    Scotland, Harry Wright from England and a host of top international players. Heading the
    Australian contingent are Commonwealth Games aspirants Nick Kidd (WA) and Jeff Tho (Vic).


    In the women’s singles the stars are Megumi Taruno (Japan), Hye Youn Hwang (Korea),
    Sashina Waran (France), Anita Kaur (Malaysia), Karyn Velez (USA), Le Ngoc (Vietnam),
    Karen Foo (Mauritius) and Chia Chi Huang (Australia). In total there are over 40 entrants in the
    women’s singles resulting in qualifying rounds being required.


    In the men’s doubles there are 27 pairs entered including the 2009 Australian Open defending
    champions and highest ranked pair Gan Tek Chai and Tan Bin Shen from Malaysia ranked
    No.15 in the world. They will have to reproduce their magnificent effort of last year against
    some of the Korea and Japanese top pairs and our own Glenn Warfe(Vic) and Ross Smith
    (Vic) who are making an impact on the world scene.


    The women’s doubles has 23 pairs entered including Misaki Matsutomo and Ayaka Takahashi
    ranked No.20 in the world, together with players from Korea’s winning Uber Cup team Min Seo
    Kim and Kyung Won Lee (one half of world No.10) competing in the field. New Zealand’s
    Danielle Barry and Donna Haliday are the highest Oceania ranked pairs at No.39 in the world.
    With Australia’s Chia Chi Huang now concentrating on her singles, He Tian Tang will be
    partnering Renuga Veeran in Australian defense of the WD title won last year and a strong
    showing is expected.


    The mixed doubles has 39 pairs competing. Qualifying rounds again will be required to get to
    the main draw. New Zealand’s Henry Tam and Donna Haliday ranked at No.27 in the world
    head the field. Strong competition is expected from Japan’s Shintaro Ikeda and Reiko Shiota,
    Korea’s Tae Sang Park and Hyun Jung Ko and our own brother and sister combination of Raj
    and Renuga Veeran and our other pair of Glenn Warfe and Kate Wilson-Smith.

    It will be interesting to see how Zul plays. :) Good prospect for Malaysia's MS future, but don't know for sure yet.

    2010 Australian Badminton Open: Tien Minh Nguyen (Vietnam) to win the Mens Singles

    .
    It will be indeed interesting to watch Malaysian top junior, Zulfadi Zulkiffli, participating.

    On paper, it could be Tien Minh Nguyen, from Vietnam, who could win the 2010 Australian Mens Singles Badminton Open title.

    Has anyone else heard that the players who have entred the tournament can not use their players pass to gain access to the semi finals and finals? They must also buy tickets if they want to watch? I have never heard of this happening at any other tournament anywhere in the wolrd! You would think that a $90 entry fee would be enough to allow you entry to the whole tournament.

    I hope i have heard wrong.

    Need to buy tickets for the Semi-Finals and Finals to support/cheer for teammates?

    .
    Agree with you that tournament players should be allowed to watch the whole tournament.

    From where did you obtain the info? :confused::confused::confused:

    It would be unfriendly to players, especially from overseas, to need to buy tickets for the Semi-Finals and Finals to support/cheer for their teammates.

    With luck, Zulfadli Zuklifi can make round 3. Fair enough draw.
    Not sure if Gan Teik Chai/Tan Bin Shen are fit to play after retiring in the MAS Open.

    I'm not sure, I didn't see the match but Gan/Tan retired in the second game, after losing the first game 6-21

    This pair is quite good, shouldn't lose 6-21 to Alvent/Hendra if they are playing normally.

    Have spoke to the organisers and they have said that players will be allowed access to all days of the tournament with their player passes. They too had heard the rumour regarding players not being granted entry on SF/Final say but weren't sure where it had come from
