    I won't completely ignore his chances however less probable it may seem. But that will only come into question after he manages to battle pass WWKV.
    I am betting on a revenge attempt for the HKG player, he'll be too tough for the young Indonesian who is extremely error prone and "unpolished"

    Why can't he win France? VA and LD aren't there, which leaves imo two players who'd be favourites against him: CL and KS. CL seems out of form and KS could well be slightly exhausted.

    I don't know about KS. But CL and LCW itself will be too hot for him, considering the fact that he did not win any of them before.

    We can write anything like "if" / "could", but the truth is he is not here . So, why do we need to judge him. He is good player . Let us hope for his return to SS circuit asap.

    JC defeating Kidambi is as likely as Kim Jong Un landing in France and streaking through the badminton courts completely naked. In other words, it's not gonna happen.

    Jonathan Christie is capable of creating an upset, he has everything in check, just unpolished.
    Let's see how well he can do.

    JC, Ginting and Ihsan have beaten KS once. Tthe problem is, KS is on another level of badminton. Mission impossible.

    By that logic, you can't win against anyone you've never beaten before. And LCW is 35 now, has two second round exits against Prannoy and a first round defeat against Brice Leverdez in 3 of the last 4 tournaments. You make it sound like he's invincible.

    You know you did that yourself - even starting it - by saying he can't win, right? :D

    H.S.Prannoy defeated Lindan before when Kento Momota was in the circuit. But Kento Momota could not win it. Prannoy has a habit of beating all the top guns not only now but even before. But Kento could not win any of them even before .

    Yeah. Even i am not deviating from my statement. Kento momota is not here. So, that's why i asked you why are you over confident in him winning French Open when all other top guns are here except Lindan and Victor Axelsen.
    So, i wanted to tell you to come to the reality instead of seeing things which is not going to happen.

    Or Wei Nan is really going down.
    He is getting weaker day by day.
    Pity because I like to see his Rocket smash at his finest.

    Axelsen still No.1, Son Wan Ho No.2, Lin Dan No.3

    Kidambi will up 4 levels and become World No.4 when new BWF ranking will be published this Thursday.

    Axelsen will remain as World No.1 with his absent at French SS, no matter the result of this tournament. Axelsen had already held 4 champion titles in his rank points (Dubai SSF 2016, India SS 2017, WC 2017, Japan SS 2017)
    Kidambi/Son Wan Ho become a champion here will not change the top rank.
    If Kidambi become a champion here, he will up 3 levels to become World No.2 (since Kidambi hold only 3 champion titles so far).

    And if anybody forgot, Lin Dan withdrew twice in a row (Denmark SSP and French SS).

    I'd prefer Srikanth to win. But difficult to replicate the same form in following week. I think the wounded tiger is Chen Long and he will be my fav to win,i rrespective of his form. Second favorite would be Son Wan Ho.

    Will be interesting to see how Prannoy tackles LHI. He will go for the lines but it wont be that easy as it was for Srikanth. Shouldn't be an easy time for prannoy but at least he now knows LHI's weaknesses a bit better.

    JC had ever defeated Kidambi before.

    Pushing the probability into zero is kind of you're afraid too much and denying the fact.
