Qualifying Rounds I believe no qualifying rounds are being played due to lack of player interest -- They did not get 32 players to fill the main draw ! What's up with Indian players ? Darnit, this is at least a Rs 2 lakh domestic tournament! -- Indian players should be ashamed of not making use of the opportunities provided.
