New Delhi: The Indian challenge in the women's singles weakened a lot with the withdrawal of PV Sindhu out of the China Open Super Series Premier to be held in Fuzhou from Tuesday.
In the absence of the World Championships bronze medalist, the onus will be on Saina Nehwal to keep the Indian flag flying. Sindhu fell sick after the European tour and decided to skip China. She will, however, play in the Hong Kong and Macau tournaments later this month.
