As the world’s best prepared for this season's first Premier Superseries, with China seeded to win four of the five titles, Indonesia's Taufik Hidayat, the 2004 Olympic champion, said the game was “only about Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan at the moment.” That long-lasting rivalry, however, will not continue in Birmingham, as Malaysia’s Lee is still suspended indefinitely for failing a doping test at last August’s world championships. Lee, who won silver medals at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, remains confident he can clear his name when a Badminton World Federation panel conducts a hearing into the case.

Del Potro claimed that it's very hard to live with injuries, adding that he would have trouble getting up some days. Del Potro said that his ultimately premature comeback in Sydney in January, when he still felt pain with his two-handed backhand, had helped his confidence immensely.

By Rex Gowar BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Former world number four Juan Martin Del Potro, having drawn confidence from his brief Sydney return in January, said on Monday he was confident of a full comeback “very soon”. If my hand responds well, I’ll come back as soon as possible but that depends exclusively on my hand, it will decide my return,” Del Potro told a packed news conference. “I’m in full recovery, I’m going faster than the time frame the doctor set for me as a goal and that has me enthused and that’s why I believe my return will be very soon,” he said at a sponsorship presentation in Buenos Aires. The 26-year-old, who missed most of the 2010 season after surgery on his right wrist, also confirmed an improved relationship with the Argentine Tennis Association (AAT) and a return to his country’s Davis Cup team.
