What? They are making India play Mongolia? .. And Kyrgsztan is in the final eight straight?.. Man, this is an insult to Nirupama and company .. Mongolia?! .. MONGOLIA???? .. Do they have a tennis team?
.. Well, hope India pulls through against the Mongol ladies..
I was trying to find the draw and found it yesterday. (for Mi-ra Jeon ) I guess it was released yesterday as well. My reference is from www.tennis.co.kr which has only Korean version not the official Asian game site. So, you may check out official one for English version.
As for men's draw,... I'm not that interested in that. But anyway, I managed to find that too. Please don't be offended if I spell some countries' name wrong,... cause I made the spell by myself according to the pronunciation.

Thanks a lot Eric. I was desperately looking for the men's draw ..
I have no idea who made the seedings here. Are they taking into consideration who is playing for each country at all ? .. Uzbekistan and India are the strongest two teams (India's doubles team gives them a big edge, though Leander Paes' low ATP singles ranking probably caused India to be seeded low - but the guy can still beat players below top-100). Sad that UZB and IND will meet in the QFs itself ..
Pakistan has to play an extra round and the East Timors and Mangolias makes the final-16 straight? .. On what criterion could that be justified? .. Isn't Aisam Qureshi playing at all?
Thank you. I didn't know that so many people are interested in men's draw. LOL Anyway, it's ATPworld not WTAworld. ,caugh,
I don't know what kind of standard they used for the draw,... but they just mentioned 19 countries entered the men's team competition so, 3 pairs should have additional round,... so maybe top 8 seed can be exempted from the pair,.. and the rest would be just luck, I guess.
