This is a nice review of the singles events -

World Preview singles
ndia’s Saina Nehwal is the women’s seed for whom the draw has done the most favours because ahead are adversaries she has a good record over, beginning with second-seeded Korean Sung Ji Hyun (pictured). If good records prevail as the order of the week in the bottom draw, all the stylistically troublesome opponents for Nehwal are removed by opponents she finds manageable. On the other hand, reigning World and Olympic champion Carolina Marin receives the opposite luck and gets to be tired out by Sayaka Sato and no matter which lady becomes the victor it only helps Nozomi Okuhara’s cause in their tussle at the quarters. Going through, Okuhara has lesser odds against Nehwal for a possible semi.

Due to rejuvenation post-surgery, 27-year-old Nehwal, runner-up at the previous World Championship, is currently neither at her fullest nor worst form. Yet, she undoubtedly harbours a more intense offensive, greater reach on shuttles, and no reduction in strong will on court than during her early twenties when she was more feted and earned Olympic bronze in Beijing. In short, she would beat her younger optimum self and this accumulated wisdom, combined with an ideal draw, may well usher her all the way in the tournament despite lack of fanfare lately.
Srikanth Kidambi (pictured), the hottest player of 2017 (as well as 2014) with the luckiest seed number, 8 (luckiest in Chinese culture at least), could be the alternative facing Lin at the semis. This scenario is less preferable for Lin’s fortunes but makes for gripping drama as Srikanth proceeding further and further offers intriguing contrasts at each turn.

Will twenty-year-old Anders Antonsen do Lin and Son a favour and take care of Srikanth? Denmark’s third highest ranked has the toughest draw for a top half seed. It’s possible. 2017’s upstart is due to collide with 2014’s upstart in Round 3 for a first time encounter. Srikanth facing Son, in another exhibition of polar opposite attacking styles, would make it their third high profile encounter this year and the outcome is not a given despite the Indian having won on both previous occasions. Not only has it required securing the rubbers but necessarily warming to full heat on the day for Srikanth to beat a standard Son.

Depending on what you appreciate from following badminton, a step beyond pits together men with a nine-year age gap and gets the older superhero to either reprove his contemporary relevance or there’s witnessing the wonderment and nitty-gritty of how the technique of a legend must continually mature to get the job done.
Interestingly, it talks a lot about Saina and Srikanth but not much about Sindhu who 2 time medialist at WC as well as olympic medalist.

Our 100% record in singles is still intact with Sindhu and Ajay winning their matches in straight games.

[R1] (13) Ajay Jayaram (IND,17) d. Luka Wraber (AUT,114) 21-14 21-12

[R2] (4) PV Sindhu (IND,5) d. Kim Hyo Min (KOR,42) 21-16 21-14

Good start by Sindhu in a match which was expected to be tough for her .

One big upset in first round was Malysian second seed Lee Chong Wei getting beaten in 3 games by 31st ranked Frenchman Brice Leverdez.

Unfortunately our current #2 Prannoy is not there as his ranking shot up after the entries for WC were closed. Sameer Verma played instead and was disappointing in his loss against Rajiv Ouseph.
