Still searching for a title this year, India's top shuttler P V Sindhu opens her campaign in the China Open women's singles against Evgeniya Kosetskaya of Russia here today.

Olympic silver medallist Sindhu, who has finished second best on five occasions this year, has been seeded third in this BWF World Tour Super 750 and she is unlikely to face much challenge from the unseeded world number 30 in the first round.

World No. 3 Sindhu has been clubbed along with Nozomi Okuhara of Japan in one half of the draw and both can meet in the semi-finals if they reach that stage. Olympic and world champion Carolina Marin of Spain and World No. 2 Akane Yamaguchi of Japan have been clubbed in the other half of the draw.
