Overview of PV Sindhu

Since Sindhu’s ankle injury in August of last year, things have not been the same for her. Her finest performance this season has been placing in the final and semifinals of the Malaysia Masters and Madrid Spain Masters, respectively. She is gradually regaining her best form. But it’s not the correct way to enter a tournament to lose in the first round of the Thailand Open after a close match with Michell Li of Canada, who holds her only BWF world tour title.

Furthermore, Sindhu will be competing against Akane Yamaguchi, the No. 1 player in Japan, who the Indian faced some of her toughest matches throughout her career.

On paper, Sindhu has a 14-9 advantage in their head-to-head meetings, but since they last squared off in Thailand the previous year, a lot has changed, and the Indian player will need to really rely on her reserves if she wants to win this match.

Prannoy, on the other hand, enters the competition fresh off a Malaysia Masters victory that ended a six-year title drought and gave him his first BWF triumph.
He is India’s current most reliable singles player. His opening matchup is with Japan’s third-seeded Kodai Naraoka, one of the circuit’s most entertaining players, so things won’t be any simpler for him.

Lakshya Sen will also be looking to go far in the draw following his first-ever semifinal performance at Thailand, but ‘Mr Consistent’ Chou Tien Chen, seeded fifth from Chinese Taipei, will stand in his way.

In his opening round, 2021 world championships silver medalist Kidambi Srikanth will play Thailand’s Kantaphon Wangcharoen, while Orleans Masters champion Priyanshu Rajawat will take on Japan’s Kanta Tsuneyama.
