Apart from PV Sindhu, several other Indians will be in action in the BWF world badminton championships. Ashwini Ponnappa and Sumeeth B Reddy will team up in the mixed doubles against a Chinese team, 13th seed Ajay Jayaram will face off with Luka Wraber of Austria (men’s singles first round) and 15th seed Sai Praneeth faces Wei Nan of Singapore (men’s singles first round).
But all eyes will on PV Sindhu, who won world badminton championships bronze medals in 2013 and 2014.
With World No. 1, Tai Tzu-ying missing in action, two-time champion Carolina Marin, seeded third, will be posing the biggest threat for Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu. Indians also have to be wary of the likes of world No. 2 and 3, Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi and South Korea’s Sung Ji Hyun.
Chief national coach Pullela Gopichand would hope his wards bring back more than a medal from the prestigious event.
“This is probably the strongest squad. The men have been doing well in recent times and the four Indian players in the fray are good and capable of beating the best. Nobody is a clear favourite these days and we can expect a strong performance from our players,” he said.
