    ‘KL RACKET CLUB’ NEW ZEALAND OPEN (Grand Prix)
    Auckland, New Zealand (obviously)
    $US 50000 (how many stars is this again?)

    Tue 15 May - Sun 20 May


    Have you guys heard about this? I was checking the events calendar at Badminton New Zealand, and it does not look like Equinox is there :confused:

    Oh cool sponsored by KLRC? If that's what it says on the events calendar (and it does), then I'd say that's what's happening. I think it was US$50000 last year as well so must be 2* again.

    Also seems that the World Junior Champs are in NZ :). I emailed Badminton NZ to be sure and they said it was.

    World juniors are being held in the Waitakeres (that's in Auckland fyi)... fortunately, it's at the end of the year so I should be free to take a look. Unfortunately, I'll have to find directions :rolleyes:.

    Looks like 4/5 Malaysian mens singles players are through to round 3, with Lee Tsuen Seng to play tonight. Good luck to him.

    Didnt look like John Moody was much of a match for Wong Choon Hann (21-13 21-13) and looks like he'll be up against Jeff Tho, the number one junior from australia. It will be interesting to see how Jeff goes but to be honest, I think wch is gonna be in a league of his own.

    As for Roslin, he is yet to play a single point because of a first round bye and then a walkover in the 2nd round.

    I hope to see ccm/hth win this tournament since they are the only malaysian representitives and need to improve on their world ranking. They blew away a nz pair 21-5 21-5 and are in the same half of the draw as the 2nd seeds from Australia, Ashley Brehaut/Aji Basuki Sindoro, who are up against an unknown Indonesian pair tomorrow.

    Roslin ... denied entry to Singapore and Indonesia Opens, and now even denied the first two rounds. He is itching to play.

    I think Chan/Hoon's biggest obstacle to the title is the top seed Njoto/Wiratama.

    hmmm, we might see an all MAS semifinal for the MS, that would be quite a sight, don't think that's happened for a while, if ever.

    Njoto/Wiratama is a bigger obstacle than them.

    Andre Kurniawan Tedjono did it again!
    He defeated Ng Wei in straight sets 21-15, 21-4 :eek:
    He definitely has a good chance against Mohd Roslin Hashim for a place in the last 4.

    At this rate, PBSI will probably have to "beg" him to rejoin Pelatnas :cool:
