French Open Badminton live streaming is available this week with all of the action from Paris being covered live by bet365.
The Pierre de Coubertin Stadium is the venue for the annual French Open and starting from Tuesday October 25 the French public will be able to feast their eyes on the world’s top players as they glide about the Paris courts.
Men’s reigning champion Taufix Hidayat has arrived in Paris looking to keep hold of the title he won in 2010, while Yihan Wang is confident she can retain her championship in the women’s half of the draw.
To see if Hidayat and Wang can retain their respective titles go to Bet365 from Tuesday until Sunday October 30 to see who will be crowned the 2011 Yonex Badminton French Open champion via their live streaming service.
As well as Hidayat, last year’s losing finalist Joachim Persson from Denmark is expected to be in Paris and will be looking to go one better than in 2010, while English duo Carl Baxter and Rajiv Ouseph will be looking to cause a few upsets on the opening couple of days.
The French crowd are very passionate and with 15 home-grown talent taking to the court for the men expect the likes of Brice Leverdez, Mathieu Lo Ying Ping, Thomas Rouxel and Maxim Michel to have strong tournaments.
In the women’s section last year’s runner-up Xuerui Li will be looking for revenge on Wang following her defeat in the Final, while Frenchwomen Hongyan Pi, Perrine Lebuhanic, Marie Maunoury and Lauren Meheust will also be hoping the partisan home crowd will spur them on to victory.
