Fresh off her participation in the German Open and French Open, Vietnamese badminton star Nguyễn Thùy Linh is set to continue her European tour with the prestigious All England tournament. The competition, part of the BWF Super 1000 series, presents a formidable challenge for the talented athlete.

Scheduled to take place from March 12 to 17, 2024, in Birmingham, the All England tournament boasts a total prize money of 1.3 million USD. The event offers a significant amount of ranking points, with players earning 3,000 points from the round of 32 and 4,800 points from the round of 16. This stands in stark contrast to smaller competitions like the Vietnam International Challenge, which offers only 4,000 points to the winner.

Nguyễn Thùy Linh's path at the All England Open is fraught with difficulty right from the start, as she is drawn to face the reigning Olympic champion Chen Yu Fei of China in the early rounds. Chen previously defeated Nguyễn Thùy Linh at the French Open in 2023. The Vietnamese player's potential opponents include tough competitors like Busanan Ongbamrungphan of Thailand and Fang Jie Gao of China, both of whom have had victories over her in the past.

In the women's singles category, top seeds such as An Se-young, Tai Tzu-ying, and Carolina Marín promise fierce competition for the title. On the men's side, Viktor Axelsen, Anders Antonsen, and other formidable players will battle it out for the championship.

As Nguyễn Thùy Linh embarks on her campaign at All England 2024, she faces a challenging road ahead, filled with tough opponents and fierce competition. The tournament provides a platform for the world's best badminton players to showcase their skills and compete for coveted titles, making it an exciting event for fans and players alike.
