Following her impressive performances at the German Open and French Open, Vietnamese badminton star Nguyen Thuy Linh is set to continue her European tour with the prestigious All England tournament. The competition, part of the Super 1000 series, will see her face tough challenges as she aims to make her mark on the world stage.

The All England tournament, taking place in Birmingham from March 12 to 17, 2024, offers a total prize fund of 1.3 million USD and presents a substantial opportunity for players to earn ranking points. Despite the lucrative rewards, Nguyen Thuy Linh's path in this seventh World Tour event of the year is far from easy.

The draw has pitted her against reigning Olympic Champion Chen Yu Fei of China in the opening round, a formidable opponent who has previously defeated Nguyen Thuy Linh at the French Open 2023. The Vietnamese shuttle faces a tough bracket, with potential matchups against top players such as Busanan Ongbamrungphan of Thailand and Fang Jie Gao of China, both of whom have defeated her in the past.

In the women's singles competition, Chen Yufei enters as the second seed after recent triumphs, with other top players like An Se-young, Tai Tzu-ying, Akane Yamaguchi, and Carolina Marín also vying for the title. The men's singles category features strong contenders like Viktor Axelsen, Shi Yuqi, and Anthony Sinisuka Ginting, setting the stage for thrilling matches throughout the tournament.

As Nguyen Thuy Linh takes on the challenges at the All England 2024, fans eagerly anticipate her performances against elite opponents and hope for her success in this prestigious event. The competition promises intense badminton action and exciting matchups as players battle for glory on the court.
