New Delhi: After Saina Nehwal, India's leading male shuttler Parupalli Kashyap is also likely to skip the season opening USD 600,000 Korea Open Super Series in January due to a partially dislocated shoulder.
The world number 14 said that he will likely pull out of Korea (January 7-12) but will play Malaysia Open Super Series Premier (Jan 14-19) and will defend his title at the India Grand Prix Gold (Jan 21-26).
"I partially dislocated my shoulder last week. It was almost on the verge of dislocation but came back into position; this is called subluxation. Most likely now I will pull out of the Korea Open as I did not train much because of the shoulder," Kashyap told IANS at the Siri Fort Sports Complex here Friday.
