Sindhu was last seen in action at the Commonwealth Games in August. The 27-year old won the gold medal in the multi-nation event. However it came at a cost. She suffered hamstring injury and subsequently had to withdraw from all the other remaining tournaments in 2022.

Sindhu is now fully fit. After five months she is raring to make her return to the circuit at the Malaysia Open. She has maintained her ranking as the seventh-ranked player in the Women’s Singles. The Indian aims to go up in the upcoming season. She will however have to surpass the challenge from Carolina Marin, who poses a big threat in the first round.

Like Sindhu, Marin too has faced injury struggles over the last year.  She has been out of action for nearly a year after suffering knee injuries. The Spaniard had to undergo surgery and made her miss the Tokyo Olympics. She finally made her return during April last year and won the European Championships straightaway. It was her only title and her next best performance was a runner-up finish at French Open. She is currently ranked World No.9.
