In their quest for Great Britain as a whole, Indian shuttlers face challenging challenges

Before the All England Championships, Indian shuttlers Lakshya Sen and Saina Nehwal will want to follow in the footsteps of Pullela Gopichand and Prakash Padukone.

As they recover from injuries and struggle with inconsistent form, Indian shuttlers will need to play their hearts out at the All England Championships, which begin on Tuesday, in order to end the country’s agonizing title drought. India hadn’t won the coveted title since 1980 until Pullela Gopichand beat Prakash Padukone in 2001.

Despite Saina Nehwal finishing in second place in the 2015 edition and Lakshya Sen coming very close to winning when he reached the final of the previous edition, other Indians, including two-time Olympic medalist PV Sindhu, were unable to advance beyond the fourth round of the prestigious competition.

Since coming back from major main problem decreases, Sindhu and Sen have both had a slow start to the new season. Both players showed up on time for the India Open and the Malaysia Open. This time, the problems will only get worse.

Following a shocking defeat to the No. 12, no. 12 Sen participates in the contest. A few weeks prior to the German Open, when he faced the 41-year-old Christo Popov of France in the first round, Sindhu tried unsuccessfully to end his relationship with Park Tae-sang of Korea.

The tough Chinese Zhang Yi Man, who has previously defeated Sindhu, will challenge Sen. Sindhu. In Chinese Taipei, Chou Tien Chen, also known as “Mr. Obvious,” is fifth. Chou Tien Chen was born in Chinese Taipei. The rival and third seed Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei, who is ranked fifth in China, could be her likely opponent in the quarterfinals if the former world champion overcomes the initial obstacle.

The No. Indians are likely to be less generous. HS Prannoy, who has won numerous matches and consistently defeated top players, defeated Malaysia’s actual situation 9. 4 Lee Zii Jia competed in the Badminton Asia Mixed team championship (BATC) in February. Kidambi Srikanth, who has also been struggling for some time, will face the French candidate Toma Junior Popov at the beginning of Prannoy’s campaign.

Despite the fact that no singles players are seeded this time, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty will hope to live up to their sixth seeding. This becomes even more evident when you take into consideration that their Indonesian rivals, Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo and Marcus Fernaldi Gideon, withdrew from their matchup in the first round with only a fraction of a second remaining.

The majority of “no” Six pairs went on to compete in the season’s first competition, the Malaysia Open semifinals. MR Arjun and his partner in the men’s doubles, Dhruv Kapila, will compete against China’s Ren Xiang Yu and Tan Qiang after recovering from an injury.

The 2022 semifinalists Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand will face the seventh-seeded Thai team of Jongkolphan Kititharakul and Rawinda Prajongjai in the opening match. After a successful performance at BATC, they will also want to impress. Before that, no. 1 Due to their similar results, Chinese competitors Saina Nehwal and Han Yue will compete against each other at the India Open.

Both Shikha Gautam and Ashwini Bhat K’s women’s team and Tanisha Crasto and Ishaan Bhatnagar’s mixed team are up for grabs.
