    From the IBF's official website we can see that China Open 2003 is one of just two 6* tournaments this year with the total of prize US$ 250,000. The top players in the world can also get a number of points for Olympics from it more than before. Good news!

    Yup! That's good news for the Chinese players (as long as the pressure doesnt get to them) and for China as well:)

    Denmark Open is 5* tournament now, and then China Open will be only one 6* tournament this year.
