Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the men's singles first round of the All England Open where B Sai Praneeth takes on World No 5 Son Wan Ho.

The Indian, who has been struggling since the World Championships last year, has been handed a pretty difficult draw and it will be tough for him to cross the first hurdle. However, as he told Sportskeeda last month, at the All England, no opponent is easy. Sai Praneeth will be looking to overcome So Wan Ho, a nemesis he has not managed to beat in three previous meetings.

Even if he does cross the first hurdle, the path only gets more difficult for him as he could meet Jonatan Christie in the second round. But first, he has to beat Son. Stay tuned for all live updates.
