And with that, our liveblog of the French Open Superseries 2017 first round wraps up!

It's been a good day for the top trio of Indian badminton. Srikanth surely wouldn't have liked to progress into the Round of 16 via his opponent's retirement but that's how it was. His opponent, Fabian Roth unfortunately lasted just three points and retired, trailing 0-3.
