PV Sindhu seeks title defence at the World Championships

P V Sindhu, a two-time Olympic medalist from India, will seek to defend her title at the BWF World Championships, which begin on Sunday.

Sindhu has been in excellent form this season, winning her second silver medal at the World Tour Finals after finishing in the semifinals of the French Open, Indonesia Masters, and Indonesia Open. Sindhu will now attempt to finish the season by successfully defending her maiden World championship title, which she won in Basel, Switzerland two years ago.

With the withdrawals of the whole Indonesian contingent as well as other strong players such as two-time winner Kento Momota, the tournament has lost a lot of lustre. Carolina Marin, the three-time champion, and Nozomi Okuhara, the 2017 winner, have both withdrawn from the women's singles event.

Saina Nehwal, the London Olympics bronze medalist and 2015 silver medalist, will also miss the World Championships due to multiple ailments for the first time in her career. While Sindhu is confident in her prospects, regaining the championship will be far more difficult, as she still has to contend with Thai Pornpawee Chochuwong, first seed Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei, and Korea's teen star An Seyoung.
