French Open: PV Sindhu and co look to shrug off Denmark Open disappointment

Paris: Rio Olympics silver medallist PV Sindhu will look to shrug off the disappointment of last week's second round exit at Denmark Open and eye her maiden Super Series women's singles title when she competes at the French Open this week.

The sixth seeded Indian, who had lost to Japan's Sayaka Sato in second round at Odense, will open her campaign against Hong Kong's Yip Pui Yin at Stade Pierre de Coubertin.

In the next round, she is likely to take on China's He Bingjiao, against whom Sindhu had won at Denmark Open last week.

In men's singles, Dutch open finalist Ajay Jayaram will face a qualifier in the opening round, while Swiss Open champion HS Prannoy will square up against Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand.

Canada Open winner B Sai Praneeth will take on Korea's Lee Hyun Il in another men's singles event.

In men's doubles, Rio Olympians Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy have withdrawn.

In men's singles qualifiers, Sameer Verma will face Brazil's Ygor Coelho De Oliveira.
