World Championship silver medalist P V Sindhu will look to continue her rampaging run when she leads Indian challenge at Korea Super Series, starting today.
Olympic silver medalist Sindhu, who bettered her two World Championship bronze medals with a maiden silver at Glasgow last month, will be the cynosure of all eyes, especially in the absence of Saina and Srikanth, who decided to skip the event and prepare for next week’s Japan Open.
Sindhu will open her campaign against Hong Kong’s Cheung Ngan Yi in women’s singles competition in Seoul. In men’s singles, US Open Grand Prix Gold champion H S Prannoy, will face sixth seeded Ng Ka Long Angus of Hong Kong in the opening round.
Singapore Open champion B Sai Praneeth will face Hong Kong’s Hu Yun, an opponent against whom the Indian has a 2-2 head-to-head record. Commonwealth Games champion Parupalli Kashyap, will play Chinese Taipei’s Lin Yu Hsien in qualifiers today.
