    This website says that they are still looking for volunteers .https://www.usopens300.com

    Looks like a decent draw. The crowd are no doubt awaiting a Lin Dan - Alex Roovers Quarterfinal. ;)

    That LD caricature kind of killed the mood. :p

    And wasn't that Merlion (Singapore) in the second picture? :D:D:D Merlion and part of Singapore has immigrated to US?

    @Nine Tailed Fox, where did you get that pictures?

    Fox's enigmatic way of bizarre understanding far exceeds the mortal realm brother.

    still trying to decide if we should drive 7 hours to attend this for a weekend.

    pros:
    LD/LXR/etc.
    meet up with local friends again
    opportunity to take badminton photos again

    cons:
    not many stars in the tournament
    already packed and exhausted with summer travel
    have a overseas friend in town that weekend that we will miss

    50/50 at this point.

    Pros far outweigh the cons in my humble perspective.

    I agree tbh. Lee Dong Keun stretched LCW in the 2nd round of the All England; it's possible Lin Dan crashes out in the first round

    LOL. Didn't know Singapore is part of US now. But better than mistaking us for China, which most do.

    You mean Singapore would rather be a vassal state or tributary state of the USA ?!:eek::( I very much doubt so. Singapore is an independent sovereign state. Period.

    Eh. No. I like Singapore as it is now, an independent, sovereign state. Not a state of US or China. However, it's quite flattering of Nine Tailed Fox to put us as part of US. Most people who don't know, erroneously thought we are part of China.

    Yonex US Open Draw Released: Mens Singles Breakdown

    Lin Dan is coming to America

    For the first time since the 2005 World Championships – lost in the finals to arch rival Taufik Hidayat – Lin Dan will be coming stateside. The two-time Olympic and five-time World Champion will be looking to add the US Open to his 65 other professional event championships. Super Dan faces world No. 42 Lee Dong Keun in the first round – an opponent he is 9-0 all-time against. Lin Dan is the top-ranked Men's Singles player in the tournament.

    Brice Leverdez vs. Jan O Jorgensen
    1. With a combined 709 victories between the two of them, European powers, Jan O Jorgensen (Denmark) and Brice Leverdez (France) face off in the first round. Jorgensen, the previous No. 2 player in the world (2015), is returning from a heel injury in 2017, which made him miss more than eight months. The five-time BWF Superseries Premier winner recently helped Denmark beat Malaysia in the Thomas Cup Opening Round and is undefeated in his first three overall matches.
    2. Brice, the top ranked player from France and third overall rank in the US Open, has had success at the US Open as the runner up in 2010. Jorgensen is 6-1 all-time, but don’t the record fool you, Brice plays well against top-level competition defeating Lee Chong Wei in two of their past four match-ups.
    Dark Horse Players
    1. Nguyen Tien Minh (Vietnam)– two-time winner (2013-14); One of the most decorated Vietnamese players of all time
    2. Lu Guangzu (China) – Next in a long line of Chinese star badminton players; Australian Open Champion (in qualifying)
    3. Ygor Coehlo (Brazil) – top-ranked PanAm MS; 21 years old;
    4. Mark Caljouw (Netherlands) – No. 3 MS seed in the tournament; Won Orleans Masters 2018; made R16 last year before three-set loss to eventual champion, HS Prannoy; 1-1 against Jan O Jorgensen all-time
    5. Sameer Verma (India)– Won 2018 Swiss Open, current world No. 21; Will be looking to continue the Indian Federation's success at the US Open (H.S. Prannoy 2017 winner)
