Day one is complete at the Aviva Singapore Super Series and nothing too surprising so far. The only seed to fall that is noteworthy is Denmark’s Joachim Persson who lost to the Dutch player Eric Pang. This isn’t too big a surprise, but certainly a performance that Pang should be happy with.
In the upcoming round I’m curious about a couple of matches in particular, Chen Jin vs Rajiv Ouseph, and Wong Choong Han vs Bao Chunlai. I love to see new talent thriving, and while it’s very unlikely that Ouseph will beat Chen Jin, it will still be interesting to watch. As for Wong Choong Han and Bao Chunlai, this interests me because Wong has definitely appeared to be on his way out over the last couple of years, but he still has moments of brilliance here and there. He could pose trouble for Bao, but we’ll see what happens.
