2023 Swiss Open singles schedule, date, venue, fixtures, & first-round draw

At the men’s singles event of the 2023 Swiss Open, last year runner-up HS Prannoy is seeded fifth and is placed in the first quarter of the draw. To begin his campaign, Prannoy will face-off against in-form Shi Yuqi. If Prannoy manages to overcome Yuqi, he will probably face Anders Antonsen in the second-round. It has been confirmed that Kantaphon Wangchaoren will be Antonsen’s opponent in the first round. Lakshya Sen, the eighth seed, will compete against Lee Cheuk Yiu of Hong Kong.

Being the defending champion, Sindhu will hope for a turnaround in her fortune and as the fourth seed, she is included in the third quarter of the draw alongside Saina Nehwal.
