China Open 2019: PV Sindhu spearheads Indian challenge 

The World No 5 Sindhu ended India’s long wait for a world championship gold at Basel, Switzerland last month.

Sindhu will begin her campaign against China’s Li Xue Rui, a former Olympic gold medalist and World No 1.

World No 8 Saina Nehwal, who had won the Indonesia Masters this year, will also look to put up a good show following her recovery from injuries which bogged her down this season.

The former World No 1 looked good at the world championships before a few controversial umpiring decisions ended her run when she lost to Mia Blichfeldt of Denmark in the second round.
