Sindhu and Saina's history
Fifth seed Sindhu will open her campaign against Japan's Aya Ohori, whom she beat last week in the Malaysia Masters second round, while Saina faces another Japanese Sayaka Takahashi in her opening match.
Both the Indian shuttlers are expected to overcome their respective first-round opponents and cross swords in what would be their fifth encounter at the international stage.
Sindhu, considered a revered opponent in world badminton, has a 1-3 record against Saina, who always had the upper hand over her younger compatriot.
All the four matches between the duo have ended in straight games. While Sindhu has beaten Saina a few times in the Premier Badminton League, she has inexplicably suffered a melt down against her senior opponent at the international stage, where her last loss was at 2018 Commonwealth Games final.
