2. Sindhu on PBL opener

"I will be representing my own city and that makes this opening clash even more special. You can expect full-throated support from the Hunters which will prove to be our strength as we face Pune. I will look forward to play against Carolina and it will surely be a match to remember."

3. Marin on opener

The 2016 Olympic champion, who helped Hyderabad lift the title in 2017, will have no qualms while competing against her former team. "I am now part of a new team and yet another Indian city; you can expect me to give my 100 percent to Pune 7 Aces. As for the match against Sindhu, both of us will want to win our tie. My job is to play to the best of my ability and I will certainly do it," said the Spaniard.

4. BAI's view

"We have a new team in Pune 7 Aces and this season we will be playing in two new cities -- Ahmedabad and Pune -- keeping in mind BAI and PBL's efforts to promote and take the game far and wide," Badminton Association of India (BAI) president Himanta Biswa Sarma said.
