2022 BWF World Championships Men’s Singles First Round Draw, Fixtures, Players List
24 of the top 25 players in the world will compete in the men’s singles category in an effort to win the gold medal. Axelsen, who won the title in 2017, would undoubtedly want to further his resume with a second victory. Despite giving up two walkovers, he is currently in the best shape of his career, having only dropped one match this season on the tour. The 28-year-old has nearly been unbeatable, winning four World Tour championships, including two at Super 1000 competitions.
The home audience will undoubtedly be rooting for Momota Kento to be in the form that allowed him to win back-to-back championships in 2018 and 2019. Momota faces Lino Munoz of Mexico in the opening round as the second seed. The fifth seed in the competition, Lee Zii Jia, will face France’s Brice Leverdez, who is rated No. 40 in the world, to start his quest for a first world championship.
Four players from India have qualified for the men’s singles competition, including ninth-seeded Lakshya Sen, twelve-seeded Kidambi Srikanth, Sai Praneeth, and H.S. Prannoy. Sen will begin his bid for a second world championship against Hans-Kristian Solberg Vittinghus of Denmark, while Kidambi will take on Nhat Nguyen of Ireland. Sai’s first round is against fourth-seeded Chou Tien Chen, and Prannoy is up against Luka Wraber of Poland. In the first round, defending world champion Loh Kean Yew will face veteran Spanish fighter Pablo Albian.
