The most keenly watched event of the BWF World Championships would be the Men’s Singles event. With all top quality players in the fray, badminton at the highest level can be expected. There will be long, weary matches for every player from the word go. Motivation is high. Any let up in intensity will be punished. The smallest opportunity would be grabbed gleefully. No player, however talented, can afford lethargy. In such an intense field, favourites are hard to pick. Yet, there are a few who would fancy their chances more than anyone else. Essentially Sports picks out 5 of the players with the best chances. Mind you, the seedings are no indication as you will see.
