Having crossed swords at the BWF World Tour Finals in Bali just a few days ago, PV Sindhu and Pornpawee Chochuwong are all set for a rematch at the BWF World Championships 2021 in Huelva, Spain, on Thursday.

Chochuwong, the ninth seed from Thailand, has been a thorn for the Indian in recent times. Even though the defending world champion leads the 10th-ranked shuttler 4-3 in the head-to-head, Chochuwong has won their last two meetings.

After a straight-game hammering at the hands of the 23-year-old in the semi-finals of the All England Open in March, Sindhu put up a much better account of herself in their most recent face-off in Bali.

The two-time Olympic medalist was able to snatch a close second game before going down 12-21, 21-19, 14-21 to her younger rival.

Sindhu will hope to draw positives from that clash as she looks to halt her losing run against Chochuwong.

After a first-round bye, the sixth seed kickstarted her BWF World Championships 2021 campaign with a commanding 21-7, 21-9 over the unheralded Martina Repiska of Slovakia.

In contrast, the ninth-seeded Chochuwong had to work a little harder in her 21-13, 21-14 win over Belgium's Lianne Tan.

Sindhu is comparatively the fresher of the two and will hope to use it to her advantage should the match go the distance.
