    ^^You're excited, aren't you??..^^

    ;)..as far as i know and checked, there is no registration form yet for the 2010 U.S. Open; at least from the OCBC website. Which means, no one knows who will participate..

    who woulda thunk??..

    ..roughly 2 yrs removed and your wish has come to fruition for the U.S. Open becoming a GP Gold tourney..;)

    btw, can kwun/mods switch the dates of the Canada Open and U.S. Open around for this sub-forum header (Canada Open goes first and U.S. Open follows)-thx..

    I want to come too. But from what I heard you need to buy tickets at the door, so there is no advance ticket sale or online sale. Is that true? It may be difficult to buy tickets for semis or finals.

    ^^don't worry about tickets availability..^^

    ..as far as i recall, the last 8 U.S. Open tourneys have never had any sold out days (even Semis or Finals and yes, even last yr when Taufik came; well, it was close to a full house). Unless they invite Lin Dan, LCW and all the top players/pairs to come..
    So, you'll have a chance to buy your Semis and Finals (or any other days' actions) tix right at the spot (yes, unfortunately no online or advance purchases)..
    IMO, getting the season's pass is quite worth it (if one can make it the whole week or even the last 3 days), esp. if they have pretty good competition/players..

    ^^he's still a go..^^

    ..no words of him cancelling despite him welcoming another baby; plus he's also playing in the Canada Open, a week before the U.S. Open..if he doesn't train up, he might be rusty and if there are some decent MS players coming to the U.S. Open, who knows, Taufik might lose his title..

    Too bad that Kido/hendra, Vita are not coming..they will go to Macau instead..
    Been told that most players participate in Canada and US Open will skip Macau but will attend Taipeh like TH and its Taiwanese players
