The first thing that comes to mind when I’m looking at these draws is wow they have a lot of qualifying draws. However, most of them have been listed as no match, and most of the players have been promoted to the main draw, maybe a lot of people have pulled out?
There are not very many big names in this event, Bao Chunlai, Boonsak Ponsana, Hafiz Hashim, Kuan Beng Hong and Chetan Anand are the first big names that I’ve noticed so far. I don’t know who the first seed was, but it looks like they pulled out of the event. The international calendar is going to be quiet for a while now, which is a little disappointing after the excitement surrounding All Englands and Swiss Open, but when summer rolls around we’ll have a few more things to talk about.
