The main draw for the China Super Series was announced today. Most of the top ranked players in the world are participating in this tournament, as it is the last Super Series Premiere of this year, which each of the players want to make the most of.
A lot of eyeballs will be on the women’s singles competition, as all three Olympics medalists, Wang Yihan, Li Xuerui and Saina Nehwal, will be participating in the same event for the first time since the Olympics. Each of these players have had a great year, and would want to continue their success. The ranking point difference between Li and Saina is very small, while Wang Yihan is the defending champion.
Ajay Jayaram is at the 9th spot in the BWF Super Series standings, and a good performance here will definitely secure his position in the top eight.
Young Sourabh Varma created a major upset in the Denmark Open by beating Peter Gade, and hopefully he can repeat the same here.
Parupalli Kashyap is appearing in the Super Series after a long time.
Saina Nehwal has a chance to improve her ranking, but it will be a tough tournament for her. Saina will face Wang Yihan in the semifinals if both of them reach the last four.
