Top seeds Chen Yufei, Shi Yuqi pull out of India Open

Chinese top seeds Chen Yufei and Shi Yuqi Sunday pulled out of the India Open on medical grounds, taking some sheen off the USD 350,000 World Tour Super 500 tournament beginning Tuesday. Chen recently broke a five-year title draught for China at the All England Championship and Shi Yuqi is the defending champion. With the top seeds withdrawing, India s P V Sindhu will receive the top billing and is firm favourite to lift the trophy for the second time after claiming the crown in 2017 and reaching the finals in the last edition. China will be fielding its biggest contingent at the India Open this season with as many as 25 shuttlers competing in the tournament, which concludes on March 31. World No 7 He Bingjiao will now lead the Chinese challenge in women s singles and she is looking forward to some exciting duel with Olympic silver medallist Sindhu. A lot of elite Indian players are playing around the world and they got good results. The likes of Saina and Sindhu are quality players.
