For those eager to see who plays who during this week’s Djarum Indonesia Super Series 2009, here are the draws:
Definitely some interesting match ups, ripe with potential upsets in my opinion. The most notable are:
-Simon Santoso vs Jan O Jorgensen
-Bao Chunlai vs Park Sung Hwan
-Dicky Palyama vs Rajiv Ouseph
-Sony Dwi Kuncoro vs Qualifier #3 (this will most likely be Gong Weijie, unless his default from last week is an issue)
-Eric Pang vs Boonsak Ponsana
-Taufik Hidayat vs Andrew Smith
Okay, so I know I just listed off pretty much half of the men’s singles draw, but that just goes to show how much depth the mens singles draw has. I honestly believe that these could all go either way. Obviously there are some strong favourites in there, like Taufik for example, but I really do think that Andrew Smith is just on the verge of breaking through to the next level.
Unfortunately, as per usual I don’t have much to say about the other events, but I promise you that I am working on finding some people to help me write about and comment on the other events, I swear! If you think that could be something you could help me with please check out our jobs page.
