This tournament marks the return of Miyu Nagasaki following her championship performance in Rio de Janeiro. We also get double Miyu in WD (no Miwa/Miu doubles in this tournament). Miyu will also be with her compatriots for Contender Tunis and Star Contender Bangkok.

Japan and France stole the show at Zagreb, but the top German men, Patrick, Qiu Dang, and Dima are here. But they will have to contend with Felix as top seed along with his brother and Zagreb Champion, Alexis. With no Chinese, the Japanese women should be dominant again, but matches are best of 5 until the finals so anything can happen.

I'm sure it'll be tough, but Kanak beat Hiroto Shinozuka, Feng Yi-Hsin, and An Jaehyun to take the 2024 Feeder Dusseldorf title.
If Kanak can just play on par, he should be able to make it into the main draw.

this is where WR is so important, to avoid qualifications.

all those that travel who are not top 30 or top 50, are aiming to get there to avoid qualifications.
else it is all based on luck of draw.

Very good draw for Hirano to at make the Finals(420 pts) or become Champion(600 pts). Hayata and Miwa are in the top half. She's in the bottom half. SYB's potential lineup of Japanese women looks like this: Nagasaki in R16, Kihara in QF, Hirano (or possibly Ito) in SF, and Hayata/Miwa in the Finals. Nagasaki vs. SYB is 5-4, but SYB has won their last 3 meetings. Hopefully, Nagasaki can show the form she showed at Contender Rio.
