India getting a medal this time would be a great surprise.....Cant say how Saina would perform against Chinese and Carolina to get the medal. Rest all look impossible.

It's complicated :d

 

Basically since the players are divided to 13 groups in this edition, the round of 16 will contain 13 players (no best runner-up thingies here). 3 empty position are byes and considered empty groups.

So the first seed will always be in Group A and the second seed in Group P. 3rd and 4th seeds will be drawn into Group E or L. And BWF allocate the bye to position B, F, and O. So no Group B, F, or O in the singles...

That makes sense :d 

 

Do you think these draws will have some effect on the chances for certain athletes? I've been looking at the men's singles draw and it doesn't look like there's something that really changes the chances, maybe Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan meeting in the semi's, but I doubt it changes a lot..

In addition, we have to remember that, BWF published this document before we knew exactly how many players will be there in the draw (depending upon redistributed doubles quota). Also, Group P and G are 4 player groups and they have a bye in Round of 16. So, they will be playing same number of matches as other groups (except top seed).

I also don't see any effect in the medal chances in singles... But in Chinese forums they're beginning to suspect that the draw in doubles are designed to prevent them sweeping 5 gold medals again. Ofc they're just venting their frustration haha

Maybe if they are truly expecting 5 gold medals, they are a bit delusional :p
