India's formidable duo of PV Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth will have no dearth of motivation as they aim to win the coveted All England Championships starting today.
The All England Championship is considered to be the ultimate glory for any shuttler and in India only Prakash Padukone (1980) and P Gopichand (2001) earned their rights to stand on the victory podium.
Sindhu and Srikanth are expected to have easy first round outings against, but the road is tricky for former finalist Saina Nehwal, who will face World No. 1 and defending champion Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei in the lung opener. Fourth seed Sindhu, on the other hand, would open her campaign against a relatively unknown Thail shuttler Pornpawee Chochuwong in the opening round but could face her India Open conqueror Beiwen Zhang in the next.
Srikanth, meanwhile, seems to have an easy opening round against Frenchman Brice Leverdez.
