    Check it out on worldbadminton.net

    Maybe some surprises in store. Playing in the Sudirman cup and then the next week flying to Japan...difficult to remain at peak condition.

    from what i can see, it looks just a preview of the world championships. almost all the best players in the world are there.

    i didn't remmber seeing Peter Gade's name. the Malaysians were stressed too much during the SC, also Xia will be well rested as all he did was cheering really loud during the SC.

    I think Peter Gade has to go through qualifying round

    From what I've seen in the main draw...this tournament will test the true potential of Lee Hyun II...he will most likely go through the first 2 rounds; however, he'll face Peter Gade (assuming Peter will beat Dicky Palyama) in the 3rd round. The winner of that match will either face Xia Xuanze or Lee Tsuen Seng...
