Aviva wasted no time in advertising this year's Singapore Open in "Today" newspaper today in the form of a poster. As you can see from the poster, the message was that badminton being "The World's Fastest Racket Sport Is Here" in Singapore! The picture of a giant shuttle piercing through a thick badminton programme really emphasizes the speed and power behind the bird and it then discloses in BOLD lettering how fast the shuttle can go "Catch 320 km/hr of International BADMINTON ACTION". And very subtly, the names of the top shuttlers are revealed on the peels of the broken programme and can you guess who these 7 players are? Anti-clockwise, starting from 12 o'clock, they are Ronald Susilo (our local hero of course), Chen Hong (last year's winner), Peter Gade (European Champ), Mia Audina, Taufik Hidayat (Olympic Champ), Zhou Mi and Wong Choon Hann. And the message to badminton-loving fans: "Don't miss your chance to feel the badminton fever first hand! With over 300 international professional shuttlers, including the world's top 10 seeds, this will be an event of heated matches with high-powered shots of up to 320 km/hr! Expect thousands of spectoators rooting for their favourite players. So, let's come in full force to cheer for the Singapore team headed by our Olympics hero Ronald Susilo!" I have a feeling that this will be the best Singapore Open with a record crowd and attendance cheering for their favourite players. Singaporeans are expected to go all out to support their local heros and heroines! Welcome to the Singapore Open. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!
