Tuesday, January 17 marks the beginning of the Yonex-Sunrise India Open 2023, which will be held for the first time in the nation’s capital city of New Delhi. The tournament’s official name is the 2023 India Open. Up until the 22nd of January in 2023, the competition will take place in the KD Jadhav Indoor Hall. Since 2008, players have been able to compete in this tournament in India, but this year will mark the very first time that the India Open competes in the category reserved for players with a super 750 rank.
The BWF World Tour is broken up into a total of six different levels, and one of those levels is called the Super 750. The World Tour Finals, Super 500, Super 1000, Super 300, and Super 100 are the competitions that take place in the remaining five categories. The second stop on the 2023 BWF World Tour will be the India Open, which will also count toward the India Open championships. This tournament will take place in India.
The 19th iteration of the prestigious India Open badminton tournament will take place in New Delhi from the 17th through the 22nd of January. This tournament features some of the best players in the world. The India Open, which is being played for a total prize pool of $900,000, has drawn the best badminton players in the world as a result of the tournament being given Super 750 classification for the very first time.
A large number of the world’s best shuttlers, including former and current Olympic and world champions, are expected to compete in this tournament. Viktor Axelsen, the defending world and Olympic champion in the men’s singles event, is competing again with the goal of winning a third title.
Akane Yamaguchi, the reigning world champion, is the top seed in the women’s singles competition. Chen Yufei, who won the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics, is the third seed. Both Nozomi Okuhara and Carolina Marin are former world champions, and they faced each other in the first round of competition.
PV Sindhu, a fan favourite at home who won this tournament in 2017, is the fifth seed and will start her campaign against Supanida Katethong, who is ranked thirty in the world. In light of the fact that Sindhu lost to Marin in the first round of the Malaysia Open just a week ago, she will be extremely motivated to get her first win of the year at her home tournament.
Both HS Prannoy and Lakshya Sen, who are considered to be the best men’s singles shuttlers in India, have been given the same opponent in the first round. Prannoy prevailed over Sen in three exhausting games in Kuala Lumpur last week. The matches took place last week. It is not yet certain whether or if Sen, the reigning champion, will be able to get his revenge on that loss.
The men’s doubles champions from the French Open, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty, will be the focus of everyone’s attention after they advanced to the semifinals of the Malaysia Open last week.
