    The first round will start tomorrow and here's a few interesting tie. As usual, predicted winners are in bold.

    MEN'S SINGLES
    Chetan Anand vs Kennevic Asuncion
    Ng Wei vs Hendra Wijaya
    Lee Tsuen Tseng vs Poompat Sapkulchananart (the Thai beat Sony in Jaipur)
    Alamsyah vs Kendrick Lee
    Arvind Bhat vs Sairul Amar Ayob
    Nguyen Tien Minh vs Shoji Sato (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- it will not be a shock if the upcoming Viet manages to beat the Japanese
    Anup Sridhar vs Boonsak Ponsana
    Lu Yi vs Simon Santoso -- a tough first test for Simon

    WOMEN'S SINGLES -- surprisingly, nearly all the matches are interesting
    Wang Chen vs Julia Wong
    Wang Yihan vs Soratja Chansrisukot
    Eriko Hirose vs Chien Yu-Chin (MATCH OF THE ROUND)
    Lydia Cheah vs Saina Nehwal
    Cheng Shao-Chieh vs Lee Yun Hwa
    Li Li vs Wong Sin Yee
    Jiang Yanjiao vs Yu Hirayama
    Trupti Murgunde vs Xing Aiying
    Meemek Monthila vs Kanako Yonekura
    Chen Li vs Wong Meow Choo
    Jun Jae Youn vs Yip Pui Yin -- Jun is a qualifier :eek:
    Lee Hyun Jin vs Seo Yeon Hee -- bad draw for Korea

    MEN'S DOUBLES
    Shen Ye/He Hanbin vs Sudket Prapakamol/Patapol Ngernsrisuk -- CCM/KKK withdraw from the tournament, making it easier for Candra/Sigit to cruise through to the final. Note that Shen/He is the World Junior runner-up 2 years ago.
    Hendra Gunawan/Joko Riyadi vs Choong Tan Fook/Lee Wan Wah (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- I am expecting an upset from Indonesia's no 4 pair
    Albertus Susanto Njoto/Yohan Hadikusumo Wiratama vs Gan Teik Chai/Abdul Latif Mohd Zakry
    Shuichi Sakamoto/Shintaro Ikeda vs Luluk Hadiyanto/Alvent Yulianto

    WOMEN'S DOUBLES -- most seeded pairs receive a bye to the second round...not much interesting match
    Chou Chia-Chi/Ku Pei-Ting vs Jiang Yanmei/Li Yujia -- the Singaporean pair shoud win and face the 2nd seeded Kumiko Ogura/Reiko Shiota in the second round.

    MIXED DOUBLES
    Songphol Anukritayawan/Kulchala Vorawichitchaikul vs Hoon Thien How/Ooi Sock Ai
    Tsai Chia-Hsin/Cheng Wen-Hsing vs He Hanbin/Zhao Yunlei
    Tan Bin Shen/Ooi Yu Hang vs Anggun Nugroho/Yunita Tetty
    Kennevic Asuncion/Kennie Asuncion vs Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thungthongkam (MATCH OF THE ROUND) -- can the Asuncion bro-sis combo beat the not-in-form Sudket/Saralee?

    Ageed with most except;
    Chong/Lee - I don't think they will lose at home. Too experienced.
    Chen Li to beat WMC

    Lydia Cheah v Saina Nehwal- My match of the round. I am fascinated by this young Indian lass. Beating Li Li and Tracey Hallam so easily in the CG. She is perhaps the most talented young non-chinese female single player to emerge in a long time.

    Any Chinese players cannot be overlooked. They are mysterious and often you don't know what to expect. So, I am not so confident of Wong MC winning, but I hope so.

    It am fairly confident that Jun Jae Youn would have no problems against Yippy.

    Choong/Lee would face some problems but I think they should prevail.

    Lydia lost. feel that she need more exposure. Saina Nehwal and Lydia is the same age but Saina Game hv matured. She need to be sent for more tournament like this for exposure.

    There is nothing to worry about really. It is very hard to tell with juniors. They can blossom at different times. Give it time. Don't pile pressure on the young ones.

    Quite a number of surprising results in the WS.
    http://bam.org.my:8080/abc2006/upload/results/ws.html

    Soratja bt Wang Yihan
    Lee Yun Hwa bt Cheng Shao-Chieh
    Pai Min Jie bt Salakjit Ponsana
    Trupti Murgunde bt Xing Aiying (Indian players on fire)
    Ng Ka Shun bt Huang Chia-Shin
    Chen Li bt Wong Mew Choo

    Hirose took some trouble beating Chien Yu Chin.

    At the time of writing, the last four matches have no results yet.

    Some WS results are out, with a few notable upsets.

    Soratja Chansrisukot bt Wang Yihan 17-21, 21-12, 21-19 :eek:
    -- when was the last time a Thai WS player beat a Chinese player?

    Lee Yun Hwa bt Cheng Shao-Chieh 21-4, 21-12
    -- surprisingly easy win for the Korean.

    Pai Min Jie bt Salakjit Ponsana 21-19, 16-21, 21-19 :eek:
    -- another upset win for the Taiwanese player...again a close shave in the third set

    Trupti Murgunde bt Xing Aiying 21-12, 23-21
    -- both players are in the CG and overall, the Indian players have caught my attention since their performance in Jaipur. Although India did not qualify for the Uber Cup, their singles have really improved a lot. Trupti and Saina won their matches today. Both face Japanese players tomorrow. Trupti will face Kanako Yonekura, while Saina will face Eriko Hirose

    Ng Ka Shun bt Huang Chia-Hsin 21-13, 13-21, 21-11

    Chen Li bt Wong Mew Choo 22-20, 21-11
    -- a tight first set and I think Wong must have been exhausted after the CG outing. Yes, I agree that any Chinese women player can't be underestimated.

    another suprise, Jun JY lost to Hkg player, Yip in 3 tight matches.

    Very interesting result from this ABC 2006 specially in women singles. All the best Asian female players except China participate in here.

    Shockingly, lots of seeded players lost.

    The Japanese trio who will be likely play the 3 singles all cruise to second round. (Kaori, Kanako and Hirose)

    Meanwhile Korea so far only had 2 singles after Jun shocking lost . So Korea will probably hesitated to place Jun as their third WS in Uber.

    Taiwan lost 2 of their top WS. Bad sign. Hkg only lost one from 3 WS. Singapore lost 1 win 1.

    So far Japan seems like top contenders beside Netherland to fight for runner up spot for Uber Cup. (if the Netherland pretend to loose in their group so they will not meet China in SF)

    In ABC 2006, most of Asia country sent their best players (specially the Thomas and Uber participants)

    Curiously, China only send all their junior or second class shuttlers. If their junior players can reach final or even won , (maybe in WS or WD) , their confidence will be soaring up.

    Another wrong and very dumb move from PBSI.

    Why they didn't send any WS and WD in ABC 2006?

    If the reason cause they lost in Uber Cup, what a pathetic reason. Thailand and India who fail in Uber Cup send their best shuttlers.

    ABC 2006 is 4 star events. And in women field, the competition is not very strong cause China didn't send their best shuttlers and all the European girls cannot compete here.

    So it is a perfect event for Indonesia women singles and doubles to play here , gain experience and some ranking pointscause the opponents are easier.

    If this still continued (and I strongly believe PBSI still will do it), our women players still cannot win Uber qualification for 2 or 4 years from now.

    What a waste, cause we Do have some potential women players.
