Published

The new feeling of india doubles, Chirag Shetty and Satwiksairaj Rankireddy, retired on Thursday of the next World Badminton Championship due to injuries.

The Indian duo became the first pair of men’s doubles in the country to win a BWF Super 500 title last Sunday, helping them to enter the top 10 ranking.

However, the injuries vanished their hopes for a good performance in the next prestigious tournament, scheduled to start on August 19 in Basel, Switzerland.

“The Satwik shoulder injury he suffered at the Thai Open did not heal as fast as we expected, and he had also lifted my abs during the semifinals, so we decided to skip the World Championship,” Chirag told PTI.

“We talked to the coaches and the physio and they said that if we play, it can get worse and we could miss a month or two. Being the pre-Olympic year, we decided not to take any risks, ”Chirag additionally told PTI. “We are going to play the Chinese Open and the Korean Open in September.”

In the Thai Open, Chirag and Satwik were victorious in a raffle that included nine of the 10 best ranked couples in the world.

Also a pair of mixed doubles of Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy retired from the tournament, as the former is struggling with a leg injury.

These retreats mean that India will not have any representation in mixed doubles with Satwiksairaj and Ashwini Ponnappa who will not be able to compete as a couple.

Elsewhere, India’s highest medal hopes have received a fairly easy initial draw. PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal have a first-round goodbye. It is likely that the fifth seeded Sindhu in front of the second seeded Tai Tzu Ying in the quarterfinals, while Saina, who planted the eighth place, could face the Chinese Chen Yu Fei in the last eighth leg. The two could face each other in the semifinals after a new draw placed them in the same half.
