Lin Dan seems to gain some weight...
There is no choice. There are just too many Indonesian entries. It is a rule of the draw that countrymen would not meet each other in the opening round. If you look at http://www.worldbadminton.net/ibf/testdraw3static.asp?eventcode=4313&chosenclass=MD&main_or_qual=M you can see "It has been necessary to have players/pairs from the same Member Association playing each other in the first round" at the top. However, at the second round, there are no such rules. Even in Europe or anywhere else, countrymen can meet each other. So, you should not be fed up.
The last time I saw WCH pictures, he was holding a lack racket and didn't know what it is, but in the picture posted in this thread i saw him with cab 21, is it possible that he switch back to it?
Men's singles seeds result
Simon Santoso starts his killing saga again. The 19 year old beat 7th seed NG Wei of Hong Kong in a very convincing two-set match at the first round of Indonesia Open.
In 40 minutes, Simon push the bird all over the corner with different speed and pace that makes NG Wei run around the court. It's all ended with a fierce smash from Simon. Simon ended the first set 15-5 without giving NG any chance to develop his game. The second set was even more tragic with NG only managed to gain 2 point at 1-13 before Simon wrapped up the match.
Said to be the next Indonesian star, Simon has become a giant killer defeating big names like Peter Gade, Muhd. Roslin Hashim and Shon Sheung Mo. Simon will have to face Taufik Hidayat Akbar--a former national trainee that was ousted recently--in the second round.
Hidetaka Yamada suffered the seed syndrome being ousted by a junior and rising star CHEN Jin. CHEN wins 15-11 15-5.
