Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the men's singles draw of the All England Open. In the second round fixture, HS Prannoy takes on Tommy Sugiarto of Indonesia.

Prannoy started the season on a poor note as he was derailed in the first couple of months due to warts on his feet. He suffered a first round exit at the India Open in February. Although he is still not at his 100% fitness, Prannoy managed to bring his firepower to stun the eighth seed and last week’s German Open winner, Chou Tien Chen 9-21, 21-18, 21-18 in the first round. After being blanked in the first game, Prannoy gradually settled into the match and held his nerves, showing his mental fortitude. 

A win today can set him up against Kidambi Srikanth in the last-eight, provided the World No. 2 too wins his respective second round match later on. This match itself will be an exciting affair, stay tuned.
