The number 2 player in BWF rankings is still recovering from the muscle strain and has been advised rest for a week by the doctors,

“Srikanth is much better. The injury has almost healed. But we wanted to ensure that he is 100 per cent before he plays a tournament, not even 90 per cent, so we decided to give him another week’s time rest. We want him to be very good in the tournament he plays,” India physio C Kiran said.

Kidambi has been in red-hot form this year as he has won four titles viz French Oen, Denmark Open, Australian Open and Indonesia Open. He finished as the runner-up in the Singapore Open, where he was stunned by another Indian shuttler B Sai Praneeth.

Apart from Kidambi, the other Indian shuttlers who will miss Hong Kong open are Sameer Verma and Ajay Jayaram.

Meanwhile, PV Sindhu loss to Gao Fangjie of China a couple of days back marked an end to India’s competition in the China Open. It was a surprising loss as the competition was a one-sided affair where Sindhu’s opponent defeated her by 21-11 and 21-10.

Saina Nehwal, who defeated Sindhu to clinch the National Championship a few days ago, was ruled out of the tournament in the second round after losing out to Akane Yamaguchi of Japan.
