#3 Max Lee

Hong Kong number one Max Lee will be paying a first to St George's for the Channel VAS champs, but he should be well acclimatised after playing the British Grand Prix in Manchester before heading to Surrey.

Max has been in good form this season, which started at home for the Hong Kong Open where he produced a series of upsets to reach his first World Series semi-final, giving eventual champion Ramy Ashour a good test too.

Since then he's appeard in the China Open, was runner-up (conceding the final to Daryl Selby) in Macau, and turned in creditable performances in the Netsuite and US Opens, reached the third round of the Wadi Degla worlds (where he faced Karim Abdel Gawad for the second event in a row), and lost a brutal Qatar Classic match against Ryan Cuskelly, cramping up in the last couple of points - as he did in his Macau semi.

Max faces a qualifier in the first round, and if he wins that he's likely to face Colombian cannonball Miguel Rodriguez in the quarter-finals.

"It's the last tournament for me in 2016," said Max.

"I've had lots of matches so far this year, and also have some good results, so I'm just looking for a last push in this year.

"I'll try my best as usual, but not to cramp this time I hope!!

"I'm excited to be coming back to England for a couple of weeks, I have lots of memories of training and playing matches there, and although I am new in this tournament, it just feels like a second home for me."
