The US open was a prestigious Grand Prix Gold badminton event, which is just one level below the Superseries level of badminton tournaments.

For the USA, Howard Bach and Tony Gunawan's finished with the silver medal at the US Open, ahead of opponents from several Asian countries who have traditionally dominated the sport of badminton. Their victory can possibly turn out to be helpful for the development of the badminton in USA and the American subcontinent, by attracting more people to this beautiful sport.

For India, the challenge ended in the 3rd round, when Chetan Anand and Kashyap lost their matches, with Chetan going down to world no.4 Taufik Hidayat, and Kashyap losing to the eventual runner-up Tien Minh Nguyen of Vietnam. RMV Guru Sai Dutt had lost earlier in the 2nd round against 6th seed Marc Zwiebler of Germany in 3 tough sets. Marc eventually finished as the losing semi-finalist at the US open.
