The Korean Open promises to be a tournament worth watching because whoever wins will gain a lot of respect for the coming World Championship. It should be star-studded because I cannot imagine any country not sending their top players to this tournament to be ready for the World Championship the following month. As such, everyone who is anyone will be there. The likes of LD, LCW, CJ, CY, CH, PG, TH, Boonsak, LYI, and more will fight for the title prior to becoming World Champion. The style of play would be fast, hard running, and lots of smashes. No one would give this game away -- they would want to prime themselves up. Players like Chen Jin, Chen Yu are all peaking at the right time --- they are the players to reckon with in Badminton. These players showed us that they can mix it with LD and LCW in terms of speed and footwork, besides skills in power smashing and neat dropshots. LD obviously took a rest to be prepared for this, and many thought LCW should have too (but maybe he did by his fast exit). And did PG also read the game plan and decided for a fast exit ? Will Chen Jin continue with his winning way against these top players at the Korean Open ? One thing is very clear : you need to play at your top in the KO. If not, don't bother to turn up or your reputation will be tarnished !
