    Denmark Open SS 2008: Seedings not based on latest rankings

    .
    yannie ... It's great that a few top players will be participating in this Denmark Open SS 2008.

    I am surprised to find XXF is seeded above LL, and TR above ZM : click here

    Bus:

    Taxi:

    ..one more query: are you going to help out as a Liaison Officer during this DO, miss yanyan??..if so, for which team(s)??:confused:


    ..ooh, ooh, and one more thing to ask, is this "Handsome" fellar (see below) going to be the mascot again, this yr?? Or the organizer found another "Handsome" fellar to replace him??
    Mascot
    Denmark Open has a mascot in Odense. His name is "Handsome". He will bring joy, happiness and attention to badminton.

    So, i take it..

    ...you and Anne will be skipping classes the entire week (don't worry, i won't tell the professors/instructors) and you'll be squad-less this yr (not assigned to help any squad??):confused:..If so, that'll be groovy, as you'll get a chance to watch the actions and probably mingle with the players then..;)
