News | BWF Sudirman Cup

The draw for the TotalEnergies BWF Sudirman Cup Finals 2023 was recently held in Suzhou, the host city. Excitement filled the air as the teams discovered their opponents and group placements. Among the four groups, Group C stands out as the most challenging one.

Group C consists of Malaysia, Chinese Taipei, India, and Australia. With these evenly-matched teams, it is difficult to predict the outcome. Malaysia, the gold medalist in last year’s Commonwealth Games, defeated India 3-1 in the final. However, India made a comeback at the Badminton Asia Mixed Team Championships 2023, securing a 4-1 victory over Malaysia in a group tie.

Chinese Taipei, known for their strength in all departments, is a formidable contender that hopes to advance to the knockout round and beyond. Meanwhile, Oceania champions Australia are eager to cause some upsets in the group.

Group D is another group that is hard to predict. It consists of powerhouses Japan and Korea, along with France and England. Korea, with four titles to their name, possesses an impressive track record in the Sudirman Cup. Japan, on the other hand, has been the runners-up in three of the last four editions. Both teams must keep an eye on rising European power France, known for their strength in men’s singles, men’s doubles, and mixed doubles.
