PV Sindhu may run into Nozomi Okuhara again at Japan Open badminton

PV Sindhu may run into Nozomi Okuhara again at Japan Open badminton

Both the players have to win their opening matches of the Japan Open 2017.

Ergo, as per calculations, Sindhu, who is now at the fourth spot in the rankings chart is all set to reclaim her career-best World No. 2 rank.

The Hyderabadi shuttler then staged a brilliant fight back to take a big lead in the mid-break of the decider and finally win the trophy despite a late surge from Okuhara.

With the Korea Open title in her kitty, PV Sindhu will now shift her focus to the $325,000 Japan Open, the eighth Superseries tournament on the calendar that commences at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium on Tuesday.

Following her Korea Super Series triumph, PV Sindhu is set to return to her career-best ranking of World No 2.




If Sindhu moves ahead, she might run into another Japanese, the unseeded Nozomi Okuhara, for the third time in as many tournaments.

Replying to Modi's tweet, Sindhu dedicated her first Korea Open win to the Prime Minister. That she defeated the world champion Nozomi Okuhara enhances the victory.

US Open champion Prannoy will face Denmark's Anders Antonsen, while Praneeth and Sameer will square off against qualifiers but Sourabh will have the arduous task of getting across the legendary Lin Dan in the opening round. She is the first Indian to win the Korean Open.

If Srikanth manages to beat his Chinese opponent, he will be up against Anthony Sinisuka Ginting of Indonesia, who clinched the Korea Open crown on Sunday.

Mixed doubles pair of Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy will meet fifth seeded Thai pair of Dechapol Puavaranukroh and Sapsiree Taerattanachai in the opening round, while Ashwini Ponnappa and Sikki will try to overcome Korean third seeded combo of Chang Ye Na and Lee So Hee.
