All England Badminton – PV Sindhus best Chance to Win: This year’s edition of All England can provide a great chance for PV Sindhu to win the most prestigious tournament for the first time. In last 8 attempts, Sindhu has never ever tasted success. But in her 9th attempt she can change the record in her favor. Reason, their will be no Carolina Marin, no Tai Tzu Ying and not even a single Chinese player to stop Sindhu in her pursuit to win the All England Badminton Championship title for the 1st time.

 All England Badminton: No Marin, No Tai Tzu, Can Sindhu win All England Title?
 
Olympic champion Carolina Marin pulled out of the All England scheduled to begin on Wednesday in Birmingham. “Unfortunately I won’t be able to play next week at the All England because of the injury I suffered during the Swiss Open. I’ll be back soon!,” Marin said.
 
Even world No.1 Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei is not participating in the All England Championships. The Chinese too are not competing in this event.
 
Marin was given the top seeding at this prestigious championship. “Me and my team thought that it would be better to take care of the injury that I suffered during the Swiss Open,” she said. 
 
Marin thrashed PV Sindhu in the Swiss Open final last week. The Spaniard was in the same half as Sindhu and was drawn to meet her in the Semi-finals. 
 
PV Sindhu’s draw at All England looks cakewalk now – 
 
With Marin withdrawing from the event Sindhu has a good chance of winning her first All England title. Now, if Sindhu gets past Akane Yamaguchi of Japan in the quarterfinals, she can easily reach the final where she may face either Ratchanok Intanon, Saina Nehwal or Nozomi Okhura
