Indian ace HS Prannoy is set to make a highly anticipated return at the 2023 Japan Masters after recovering from a recent back injury, which forced him to withdraw from the Denmark and French Open tournaments. Having secured a bronze medal at the World Championships, Prannoy will cautiously resume play after a four-week break, facing Hong Kong’s unseeded Lee Cheuk Yui in his comeback match.

Gold medalist at the 2022 Commonwealth Games, Lakshya Sen, is working towards regaining his form following a decline since his July triumph at the Canada Open. His initial challenge comes from the third-seeded local favorite, Kodai Naraoka. Meanwhile, Kidambi Srikanth is launching his campaign against a qualifier, and Priyanshu Rajawat, another Indian in the men’s singles, will face Lin Chun-Yi of Chinese Taipei.
