    The Missing List

    Quite a few top players will skip this year's Singapore Open:
    (scann has helpfully posted the tournament draw here)

    Men's Singles

    China: Lin Dan, Bao Chunlai, Chen Jin, Chen Hong
    Indonesia: Sony Dwi Kuncoro
    South Korea: Lee Hyun-Il, Park Sung-Hwan, Shon Seung-Mo
    India: Chetan Anand

    Luck of the draw: Lee Chong Wei, Peter Gade, Ronald Susilo
    Curse of the draw: Wong Choong Hann, Kendrick Lee, Taufik Hidayat

    Men's Doubles

    South Korea: Lee Yong-Dae & Jung Jae-Sung
    China: Cai Yun & Fu Haifeng
    Indonesia/US: Candra Wijaya & Tony Gunawan

    Luck of the draw: Markis Kido & Hendra Setiawan, Koo Kien Keat & Tan Boon Heong
    Curse of the draw: Choong Tan Fook & Lee Wan Wah, Mohamed Zakry & Mohamed Fairuzizuan

    Women's Singles

    China: Xie Xingfang, Zhang Ning, Zhu Lin, Lu Lan

    Luck of the draw: Tine Rasmussen, Hwang Hye-Youn
    Curse of the draw: Eriko Hirose, Saina Nehwal

    Women's Doubles

    All the top teams are in.

    Luck of the draw: Kumiko Ogura & Reiko Shiota
    Curse of the draw: Vita Marissa & Liliyana Natsir

    Mixed Doubles

    China: Xie Zhongbo & Zhang Yawen, He Hanbin & Yu Yang
    South Korea: Lee Yong-Dae & Lee Hyo-Jung
    England: Robert Blair & Imogen Bankier

    Luck of the draw: Zheng Bo & Gao Ling
    Curse of the draw: Muhammad Rijal & Greysia Polii, Flandy Limpele & Vita Marissa

    And finally...

    Perhaps since the famed INA-US MD combo of Candra & Tony is missing, the girls have decided to have their own transnational WD combos ;)

    So, this tournament will see an India-Canada team (Saina Nehwal & Anna Rice) and a Germany-Canada team (Nicole Grether & Charmaine Reid).

    However, playing both singles and doubles might not be easy on the first combo.

    In singles, Saina Nehwal has Yao Jie and Yip Pui Yin in her path... and Anna Rice has the formidable Tine Rasmussen ahead. Stamina will be required in truckloads :rolleyes:

    i don't think TH's draw is too bad actually.
    he's got to play anup, then sairul, then simon, then kenneth to get into the final.
    that's a pretty good draw for a SS event.
    whether he performs as we know he can is a different issue.

    Apart from Zhang Yawen & Wei Yi Li, which top pair isn't playing?
    Anyway, Zhang Yawen is missing from the XD draw as well.

    Boonsak's current form (and physical fitness - or, rather, the lack of it) is unlikely to worry Susilo too much ;)
    Even against the relatively mild Chetan Anand (at the recent India Open), Boonsak had to work up quite a sweat. In contrast, (knowledgeable sources tell us that) Susilo has been training hard - eyeing a possible peak in August.

    Assuming he disposes off Boonsak, Susilo then has Roslin Hashim in his way - and Roslin is now, at best, pre-quarter tournament fodder.

    Further on, Susilo will run into one of these three: Lu Yi, Andrew Smith or Kenneth Jonassen.

    Of these, if the very very fast Lu Yi gets rid of Smith or Jonassen, Susilo could be in trouble.
    If, however, the unpredictable Andrew Smith gets rid of Jonassen and Lu Yi, Susilo can breathe easy.
    Lastly, should the mercurial Jonassen hold off Smith and Lu Yi, Susilo should still be good for a semi-final berth.

    Of course, if Susilo hasn't fully regained his fitness, it will be another story altogether. But the news is that he has :)

    Is just purely his opinion, luck can only take you that far and you have to be good to get deep into the round. Chong Wei seems to have good draw but if he doesn't play to his level then he will be history too.
    If Anup able to beat Taufik then is not because Taufik have a tough draw rather at this stage of their careers, Anup is a better player. Simply, if you don't come prepare then ready to accept the defeat!
