With World No. 1 Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei withdrawing from the tournament, Japan's Akane Yamaguchi, Korea's Sung Ji Hyun were named as the top and second seeds respectively.

In men's singles, Srikanth, who has been in rampaging form with back-to-back titles at Indonesia and Australia, is seeded eighth, just below two-time Olympic champion and five- time World Champion Lin Dan of China.

Among other Indians in the fray, Ajay Jayaram and B Sai Praneeth have been seeded 13th and 15th respectively, while World No. 28 Sameer Verma will begin his campaign as an unseeded player.

In the mixed doubles category, Pranav Jerry Chopra and Sikki Reddy, who clinched the Syed Modi Grand Prix Gold in January this year, have been seeded 15th.
