Meanwhile, India’s ace shuttler and two-time Olympic medalist P V Sindhu will look to retain her title as the tournament advances. Being one of the seeded players, she has got a first-round bye and will kick-off her title defence in the next round. She will play Slovakia’s Martina Repiska in her first match.

A host of players including two-time winner Kento Momota, three-time champion Carolina Marin and 2017 winner Nozomi Okuhara will not take part in the tournament. The edition also marks the absence of London Olympics bronze medalist Saina Nehwal from the event for the first time in her career due to multiple injuries.
