Women’s Singles – Two ladies and one sided affairs
How were the probabilities calculated?
If Player 1 vs Player 2 have played sufficient number international matches, then we use set winning probabilities to predict match probabilities.
If Player 1 vs Player 2 do not have much prior data, then we have used the current points (BWF) to arrive at the win probabilities.
Green suggests higher probability of winning and Red suggests probability of loosing.
The diagonal line is not to be considered as it gives the same player in both axes.
Player 1 (row)’s win probability over Player 2 (column) is shown. So if we look at PV Sindhu’s row – it shows the probability with which she will win the matches. Sindhu has a high chance of winning all her matches except the one against Saina Nehwal.
The two horizontal green towers include Saina and Sindhu and there is a reason why they are hot favorites for the Women’s Singles in PBL.
Han Li and Supanida Katethong come a far 3rd and 4th.
India’s favorite daughter and the hope of Awadhe Warriors. She is expected to win all the matches and it will be interesting to watch Saina Vs Sindhu. The team will be hoping to rally on the inspiration she provides to her teammates.
Backup for Saina. Bench strength for Awadhe. No doubt she will learn a lot from the World No.2
Chinese player and the best bet for Bengaluru. Most likely to lose to Saina and others but there might be a few surprises from this young dynamic player.
P V Sindhu
Chennai invested heavily on this player and will be expecting to reap their rewards. She is more than capable of defeating everyone other than Saina as per the graph, but the team owners will be hoping she will accomplish that too.
Sri Krishna Priya
Backup for Sindhu. Plain and simple. Bench strength for Chennai Smashers.
P C Thulasi
Best bet for Delhi. She can defeat Suo Di and Ruthvika Gadde but as per the data most likely won’t be a threat for the others.Surprisingly she has a good history against Supanida and is more likely to beat her.
The weakest player as per the graph and will most likely be the backup option of the Delhi Acers.
Her row looks the 4th greenish in the graphs. She is most likely to come on top for most matches other than that with Saina and Sindhu but may surprise the viewers.
Indian presence in the team. Aged 18, she will gain more from training with the team and will get the sort of exposure that a young talent like her needs.
The third strongest Women’s Singles player on papers before the tournament. She has got what it takes to take the fight to Saina and Sindhu. Strategic brilliance from the Mumbai Rockets.
Liu Zi Die
Most probably the backup for Han Li and the preferred second choice.
So the numbers here shows that it is going to be an Indian domination of Saina and Sindhu in the Women’s Singles of PBL
