Indian players flock to Indonesia Open 2022 –

Beita Badminton: The shock came after most of India’s players pulled out of this week’s prestigious Indonesia Open World Tour Super 1000, including the world number 8 in men’s doubles who just led India to the crown of the Thomas Cup last month, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy / Chirag Shetty.

Apart from Satwik/Chirag, the Indian men’s doubles players who withdrew from the Indonesia Open 2022 are the pair Krishna Prasad Garaga/Vishnuvardhan Goud Panjala. The withdrawal of these two pairs blessed the other substitutes, namely Christopher Grimley/Matthew Grimley from Scotland and the pair Liu Yuchen/Ou Xuanyi from China.

In the men’s singles sector, world number 3 player Anders Antonsen of Denmark also decided to withdraw from the tournament with a total prize pool of USD 1,200,000 or approximately Rs 18 billion due to fitness reasons, while former Commonwealth Games champion Parupallu Kashyap of India also withdrew from the joint championship along with Taiwan baseliner Wang Tzu Wei.

Former Indonesian Masters champion and London Olympic bronze medalist from India, Saina Nehwal has also withdrawn from the tournament and will be replaced by Denmark’s Julie Dawall Jakobsen.

In the women’s doubles sector, the forfeit of All England 2022 semi-finalists, Treesa Jolly/Gayatri Gopichand Pullela is a blessing for the host pair, Amalia Cahya Pertiwi/Febriana Dwi Puji Kusuma as they will enter the main round of the Indonesia Open for the first time.

Moreover, the South Korean third seed, Kim So Yeong / Kong Hee Yong has also decided to withdraw from the Indonesia Open 2022, along with the Spanish couple, Beattriz Corrales / Clara Azuramendi.

While in the mixed doubles sector, Red and White pair Adnan Maulana/Mychelle Chyristine Bandaso also forfeited sixth-seeded Hong Kong representatives Tang Chung Man/Tse Ying Tsuet.
