Lakshya Sen vs Hans Kristian Vittinghus

Lakshya Sen will begin his World Championship campaign carrying the entire hope of the nation. He had a terrific World Championship debut last year by finishing at the podium winning the bronze medal and since then the 20-year old has made the world take notice of him with consistent performances that made him break into the Top 10 in the World rankings. He enters the tourament as one of the favourites for a podium finish and takes on Denmark’s Hans Kristian Vittinghus.

36-year old Vittinghus is ranked 19th in the world and haven’t had much success in 2022 as his best so far is a quarterfinal appearance at 2022 European Championships. Both the players have met thrice so far in their career with Vittinghus leading the head-to-head record 2-1. However Lakshya enters the contest as the favourite. They last met at the Indonesia Masters with Lakshya winning the match in straight games.

Kidambi Srikanth vs Nhat Nguyen

Kidambi Srikanth has’t enjoyed much success this season and the 27-year old, who won the historic silver medal in the last edition of the Championships will look to get back to his best in the tournament. He recently won the bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games and looks to continue the momentum. He faces Ireland’s Nhat Nguyen in the first round on Monday. Though a lesser ranked opponent, the Irish beat Srikanth in their last meeting last year at the All England Championships. They have met three times in the past with Srikanth leading the head-to-head record 2-1.

HS Prannoy vs Luka Wraber

In-form HS Prannoy has  been consistently making his way into the quarterfinals and beyond, challenging some of the top shuttlers in the world this season. His best performance so far this year is a runner-up finish at Swiss Open. He has reached a ranking of World No.18 currently. He begins his World Championship campaign by facing Luka Wraber in the first round. Wraber is ranked 94th in the World and Prannoy enters the contest as the overwhelming favourite. Both the players faced each other once in the past at US Open way back in 2017 with Prannoy winning it in straight games.

Saina Nehwal vs Cheung Ngan Yi 

Saina Nehwal is the most experienced Indian currently in the World Championship and she eyes a turnaround of her fortunes as so far she has struggled with her form this season. She failed to go past the second round in any tournament in the first half of the year. Her best performance so far is a quarterfinal appearance at the Singapore Open much recently. The World No.33 takes on 50th ranked Cheung Ngan Yi in the first round. This will be the fifth meeting between both the players and Sina Nehwal leads the head-to-head record 3-1. Nehwal will enter the tournament as the favourite.
