Good to see some badminton live again. I wonder how do the athletes are approaching such an event when the future is still uncertain and I also wonder how their performances here will impact their confidence (ie winning such an event knowing half of the field and most top players are absent). We know some players couldn't even participate although they would have liked to. I can't help but watch the tournament half-hearted. Yet, we have to restart somehwere. So far, I think the (very) good surprise comes from Lakshya Sen who was impressive in his play but it was only one match against an opponent with whom he has a good head to head victory ratio. I would like to see more of him during the next rounds to confirm this first impression.
