Saina Nehwal, unbeaten in 2015, is one of the favourites for the title. The third seed will be looking to better her quarterfinals appearance last year where she lost to Wang Shixian of China. She along with Ashwini Ponnappa and Jwala Gutta will represent India in the Women’s category.

K. Srikanth and Parupalli Kashyap will be leading a 11-member strong Men’s contingent for India this year. K. Srikanth is the highest ranked Indian men’s player in the international circuit with a world ranking of 4 and is the first Indian to win a Super Series Premier Men’s title. Having defeated former World No. 1 Lin Dan to win the China Open Super Series Premier in 2014, Srikanth is India’s best chance to succeed Prakash Padukone and Pullela Gopichand as the third Indian to win the Men’s singles title at the Championships.
