The 2016 edition of the Indonesia Superseries gets underway in the capital city of Jakarta from Monday. It is perhaps one of the two events in the next fortnight or so that participants will look to gain valuble preparations ahead of Rio Olympics, the second event being the Australian open, that begins in early June.

Here’s a look at 5 Men’s Singles contenders for the competition:

1.Chen Long

He might not have had the greatest year so far, having made numerous semifinal appearances, but in the final stretch for his Olympic preparations, Chen Long will hope to clinch the Indonesian Super Series crown to get back to winning ways.

The 28-year-old, who was part of the Thomas Cup team that reached the semifinals of the competition, has been consistent this year but what will disappoint him will be his failure to win trophies and he will look to set that record straight when he takes to the courts of Jakrata from Monday.
