India’s challenge at Australian Open was expected to be led by Sameer Verma, who was coming back from a long injury lay-off. He was about to begin his campaign against Australia’s Nathan Tang. However Sameer decided to pull out from the tournament at the last moment. Sameer who is a former world no. 11, had won three BWF tournaments — Swiss Open, Hyderabad Open and Syed Modi International in 2018 to qualify for the World Tour Final but he lost his rhythm after that, followed by COVID-induced break.

Mithun Manjunath, who had reached the finals at Orleans Masters Super 100 event and two international challenge in Nagpur and Bengaluru was set to begin his Australian Open campaign against second seed Loh Kean Yew of Singapore. However he also decided to withdraw from the tournament.

Earkier, Srikanth, joined Lakshya Sen and doubles duo Satwiksairaj Rankreddy and Chirag Shetty in withdrawing from the USD 180,000 tournament. Placed at number 10 in the Race to Guanzhou rankings, Srikanth needed to win the tournament to have any hopes of qualifying for the season-ending World Tour Final in December.

But the 29-year-old from Guntur, who had claimed the bronze medal at Commonwealth Games and also played a heroic role in India’s epic Thomas Cup win this year, decided to give it a miss.

Srikanth had reached the semifinals in his last tournament at Hylo Open in Saarbrucken, Germany. The Indian had finished at the last four at Korea Open and Swiss Open as well. His withdrawl means HS Prannoy will India’s only representation at the World Tour Finals, especially after the double Olympic medallist PV Sindhu too pulled out of the Guangzhou event on Sunday.
