Another option for Bengaluru blasters is to play Sung Hyun with Ashwini Ponappa – based on points this is a stronger combination – thus will be risky for DA to make Jwala trump in this scenario.

Viktor Axelsen’s recent form, his wins over both Jorgensen and Wan Ho in 2016, he holds the edge. Russian pair Ivanov/Sozonov (played together recently) have a marginal advantage over Korean pair of Yoo Yeon Seong/ Ko Sung Hyun  (last played together in 2012) so tricky to choose DA2

Jindapol beat Cheung Ngan Yi this year, but Ruthvika beat Jindapol: tricky to make Jindapol trump. Play Tanvi Lad tomorrow to address 2 Indians rule. Ivanov/Gutta hold an edge over Pranav /Ponnappa (by points) – probably make Gutta Trump. However if Bengaluru play Sung Hyun instead of Pranav the odds will change in Bengaluru’s favor.

Mens Singles 2 should be an easy win for Acers – Safe trump, but better to have this flexibility for other matches
