Badminton powerhouses China and Japan continue their absence. Approaching to drawing date, a string of top players conceded to withdraw from this first BWF Tour of 2021 - Chou Tien Chen, Anthony Ginting, Wang Tzu wei, An Se Young, Michelle Li, Lee Y/Wang CL, Choi/Seo, Polii/Rahayu, Puavarunukroh/Taerattanachai, Jordan/Oktavianti - making Basel meet less competitive. The on-fire Viktor Axelsen will be clear favourite, he's drawn alongside INA second stringers Rhustavito, former World number one Kidambi Srikanth and 2019 WChamps bronze medalist Kantaphon Wangcharoen. Second seed Lee Zii Jia who facing criticism following lackluster performance in Asian Leg is expected to fix his temporary blip here. Carolina Marin has great start for what she did in Bangkok and seeking sterling outcome in Europe tour. She would find tricky test Zhang Beiwen in quarters if all go to script while Pusarla Sindhu has another chance to bring back her finest touch that missing quite long time. 2019 WINNERS => https://bwfworldtour.bwfbadminton.com/tournament/3439/yonex-swiss-open-2019/results/2019-03-17 MS - Shi Yuqi (CHN) WS - Chen Yufei (CHN) MD - Fajar Alfian/Muhammad Rian Ardianto (INA) WD - Chang Ye Na/Jung Kyung Eun (KOR) XD - Mathias Bay-Smidt/Rikke Soby (DEN) WITHDRAWAL LIST : - MS : Son Wan Ho (KOR), Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk (THA), Heo Kwang Hee (KOR) - WS : Gregoria Mariska Tunjung (INA), Kirsty Gilmour (SCO) - MD : Lu CY/Yang PH (TPE) - WD : Teoh MX/Yap L (MAS), Syaikah/Marwah (INA), Ramadhanti/Sugiarto (INA), Heriau/Lambert (FRA) - XD : Delrue/Heriau (FRA), Villeger/Bauer (FRA), Lee JH/Hsu YC (TPE) BWF Live TV Coverage will be available on semifinal (6th March) and final (7th March) only.
