Swedish Open from 20-23 Jan

The Swedish International Stockholm -2011 is being scheduled to take place from 20-23 Jan. The lone Indian entrant for this tournament is Aditi Mutatkar, the newly crowned National Womens' Badminton champion of India.
(update added later to this article: Arundhati Pantawane of India also qualified at the very last moment for this tournament)
23-year old Aditi, who hails from Pune, and is currently ranked no.81 in the world, will be facing Kaori Imabeppu of Japan ( in the first round.

Aditi, earlier had quite consistently been ranked in the 30s and 40s in the world rankings, before an injury that caused her to take some time off, and her ranking slipped to 81. Nevertheless she has bounced back strongly and recently won the Senior National badminton championship at Rohtak in Haryana.

The competition would be stiffer here.
Lets see how she progresses. All the best to her.
