    Latest news...

    ..(as per the tourney's organizer):

    Other big names/teams are scared off by Swine flu fears.

    Taufik is planning to make an appearance at SGVBC the Monday of US Open week. Arrangement is through Yonex. He may also make appearance at Bay Badminton Club during their $25K tournament (->->for all of you NorCal baddy followers).

    Yonex is also promoting tickets to be purchased at other badminton clubs. They are giving away a t-shirt (limited supply) with US Open ticket purchase..Clubs need to preorder their tickets soon to get this deal.

    ..stay tuned for the list of participating players..

    Update..

    ..i can't confirm & there's no confirmation she's not coming either; as i was going by what's shown on the poster.;)
    ..from what i received as of today (from the organizer), the list of players shown @ tournamentsoftware.com is a partial list/not complete. Currently it's showing 97 players, but there should be around 150 players registered.
    As for Lauren Todt participating, the last time i got in touch with her she mentioned that she's going to play (before heading back to Denmark, after the U.S. Open, to continue her Danish League action).:cool:
    Also, hopefully Holvy DePauw will come and participate.:cool:

    Stay tuned til Friday/Saturday for another update...and cross your fingers there won't be any further withdrawals..:cool:

    U.S. Open tourney info is up @ tournamentsoftware:

    After absent in last three SS tourneys, Tine will participate this GP. Absolutely she's overwhelming favourite to win WS title.
