Indonesian women dominated the sixteen starters in the qualifying round, however, the seven locals were joined by six Europeans, from among whom only Ireland’s Chloe Magee advanced.
Kaori Imabeppu, the sole representative from Japan made a notable start and advanced through the qualifying round by defeating China’s youngest entrant, Macau Open champion Sun Yu, in three games.
Host junior Hanna Ramadhini – one of three Indonesian entries who had just made it back from a runner-up performance at the Maldives International Challenge on Sunday, gave another impressive appearance. Hanna was able to resist her opponent from Russia, Natalia Perminova, fighting back from a game down to win 11-21, 25-23, 21-7.
China’s new men’s doubles pairing, Chai Biao and Hong Wei began by successfully stopping teenaged host representatives Hafiz Faisal / Putra Eka Rhoma in three games which was expected. Unfortunately, the Chinese lost to the Japanese pair of Takeshi Kamura / Keigo Sonoda in their second qualification match 13-21, 21-10, 21-15 to advance to the first round.
Reika Kakiiwa / Miyuki Maeda got their expected ticket to the next round after beating two host representatives Nadya Melati/Natalia Christine with utmost ease. Ririn Amelia / Anggia Shitta Awanda became the only local women’s doubles pairs to advance, after they shut down World Championship semi-finalist Jwala Gutta’s first overseas campaign with her new partner Prajakta Sawant.
On the other hand, Korea’s new pair and India Open semi-finalists Jang Ye Na / Kim So Young, found it somewhat difficult to ensure their entry into the next round. Maldives International Challenger runners-up Melati Daeva Oktaviani / Rosyita Eka Putri Sari tried hard to duplicate compatriot Ramadhini’s feat and almost beat the Koreans but they finally fell in three games.
