Badminton News: Disappointing run for Indian shuttlers at Thailand Open

The results of the currently ongoing Thailand Open has so far not been what the Indian shuttlers wanted, especially after what happened with Rio Olympics silver medallist PV Sindhu, who was knocked out in the first round by losing to Mia Blenchfeldt 21-16, 24-26, 13-21. Later, men's World Championships bronze medallist Sai Praneeth, and women's doubles pair Ashwini Ponnappa and N Sikki Reddy lost their first-round matches and crashed out of the Thailand Open Super 1000 badminton tournament. The Indians now left in the men's singles draw are Kidambi Srikanth, who will face compatriot Sourabh Verma in the first round, and Sameer Verma. The good news for the Indian fans is that Saina Nehwal and HS Prannoy have been cleared to play Thailand Open by the BWF after their "antibody IgG" was found positive.
