Vietnam’s best badminton player Nguyen Tien Minh is unseeded at the Indonesia Open Super Series from June 12 to 17 in Jakarta.
Minh, 29, is unseeded because he has dropped out of the world’s top 10. In the first round, the 11th ranked player will face Indonesian Tommy Sugiarto, ranked 18th in the world.
If he beats Sugiarto, Minh is likely to meet China’s Chen Jin, ranked fourth in the world, in the second round.
After poor performances in the last few months, Minh, once ranked sixth worldwide, is now doing his best to improve his ranking and prepare for the London Olympics in July.
