Good morning and welcome to the Sportskeeda liveblog of the Korea Open 2017. PV Sindhu is the only Indian women's singles shuttler playing at this tournament.

It will be a great challenge for Sindhu to shake off the World Championships final setback and dive deep into the tournament right away. The focus for Sindhu will now be to finish her already memorable season on a high.

The World No. 4 is seeded fifth and faces the World No. 17 Cheung Ngan Yi in the first round. The Hong Kong ace did take her to the third game in their last meeting at the World Championships, so Sindhu needs to be on the alert right from the start.
