    i heard japan is entering 5 players. which ones? i do not know. i can only assume it would be lower b team players...?

    i believe this is the 1st bwf tournament to ever take place in northern california.
    that alone leaves me no excuse to not attend.

    Just three players are being entered; the other two members of the delegation are coaches.

    WS: Nidaira Natsuki (Tonami); Sogo Mayu (Hitachi Chemical); Ebisawa Hana (Hitachi Chemical)

    The B Team will be returning to Japan after having participated in the Canada and US Open; and some of the other aspiring national team players will probably be eyeing the Russia Open, held at the same time, which is worth a few more points.

    No, they are not. Nidaira used to be, until she injured herself; the other two are principally corporate team players. They are ranked 17, 35, and 51, respectively, in the domestic WS ranking table.
