London Olympic bronze medalist, Saina was left nursing her Achilles tendon after her runners-up finish at the China Super Series Premier last month.
     
Saina, who next missed the Hong Kong Open and had to race against time to get to full fitness, will face Japan's  Nozomi Okuhara in her opening Group A women's singles match at
the Hamdan Sports Complex today.
     
"It is always difficult to fight with the top players in badminton. I will give my best to show my performance," said Saina, who had to undergo a scan to diagnose her Achilles tendon problems and was prescribed rest.
     
Srikanth, meanwhile, has been blowing hot and cold this season as he won the Swiss Open and India Open early in the season before stumbling on a rough patch where he made many early exits.
