INDONESIAN world number one Heryanto Arbi heads the star-studded cast for the Nin Jiom Hong Kong Open, but attention will be on the local players bidding to consolidate their places for the Atlanta Olympics. Hong Kong have players within the Olympic cut-off mark in men's singles, doubles and mixed doubles, but their positions are far from secure. Tim He Yiming and Chan Oi-ni are 13th in mixed doubles in which the top 17-ranked pairs qualify while in men's doubles He and Chan Siu-kwong are in 22nd position, two places outside the cut-off mark. Tam Kai-chuen is 36th in men's singles in which 32 players go through to the Olympic Games. However, coach Chan Chi-choi said: 'Since each country can have only three entries in an event, Ah Chuen and Tim and Siu-kwong are thus ranked higher in the Olympic qualification list. There are 11 Indonesians ranked above Ah Chuen and also several Danes, Koreans and Chinese, so his corrected position is actually 24th. And that also applies to Tim and Siu-kwong in doubles. 'But there is no cause for celebrations yet because they must at least reach the third round in Hong Kong, and also at the China and Thailand Opens.' The Hong Kong Open, from October 31 to November 5, features a cast that includes four of the top 10 men players and seven of the top 10 shuttlers in women's singles. Top threats to Arbi for the men's crown are his compatriots Hermawan Susanto and Allan Budi Kusuma, and seventh-ranked Poul-Erik Hoyer-Larsen of Denmark. Heading the women's field are South Korea's Bang Soo-hyun and China's Ye Zhaoying.
