Despite of this scenario, none of an Indian is qualified for the quarterfinals of India Open 2023 held at KD Jadhav Indoor Hall of the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium in New Delhi from January 17 to 22, 2023.

World No.5 PV Sindhu's and World No.9 Prannoy HS's first round exit is the big blow. 

5th seeded Chirag and Satwik, 7th seeded Lakshya who defeated his counterpart Prannoy HS in straights in the first round, Saina Nehwal who tasted long awaiting win in the first round, and upcoming doubles pair Treesa and Gayathri couldn't cross the second round.

No Indian player has entered the quarter-finals of India Open 2023 and Indian dream is gone.

All the top level players are failed and the identified next level players like Malvika Bansod and Aakarshi Kashyap, and other mixed and Men’s doubles pairs are also hadn't showcased their skills in par with elite Asian and European players.
