I think Maharu Yoshimura will win.

He is really young, and he did a very good job in the spanish open a few months ago!

However, there are other good players too: Yuto Muramatsu, LeeSangsu...

I think that we'll se an exciting Belarus Open!

Li Ping beats Ruwen Filus in the final! I was the only one who voted for him. :)
Also another great performance by Mima Ito. Wakamiya had no chance in the final.
