Title favorites in men’s singles at the Madrid Spain Masters 2024

Loh Kean Yew

Loh Kean Yew, a Singaporean badminton player ranked 11th in the men’s singles category, is considered a top contender for the Madrid Spain Masters 2024.

Given his accomplishments in 2023, including a runner-up finish at the Thailand Masters and quarter-final appearances at the Indonesia Masters and French Open, Loh poses a significant threat to his rivals.

Kidambi Srikanth

Despite having less recent activity, India’s Kidambi Srikanth is a formidable contender in the tournament due to his strategic skills. The player is in good run-off form and seems to have found his mojo back at the Swiss Open. The former World No. #1 defeated Lee Zii Jia in his run to semifinals at the Swiss Open.

Ranked seventh seed, and with top players absent, he has an excellent opportunity to secure the title.

Lin Chun-yi

Taiwanese badminton player Lin Chun-yi is a formidable opponent despite not having a long list of titles. He is in excellent form, having recently won the Swiss Open by defeating Chou Tien-Chen. Lin has also won three Super 300 titles, including the US Open, Thailand Masters, and Swiss Open.

Toma Junior Popov

Toma Junior Popov, ranked 25th, is a formidable contender for the tournament championship. While he has only won one Super 300 tournament (the 2021 Spain Masters), Popov has consistently performed well in recent years. He earned a bronze medal at the 2023 European Games and is seeded eighth in this tournament. Popov aims to deliver his strongest performance and establish his dominance in the competition.

Chou-Tien Chen

Chou-Tien Chen, a Taiwanese player currently ranked 13th in the BWF men’s singles, is the leading contender to emerge victorious at the 2024 Madrid Spain Masters. In the past three months, Chen has shown his skills by securing the championship title at the 2024 Thailand Open and finishing as the second-place finalist in the 2024 Swiss Open.

His impressive recent performances suggest that he is poised to excel in the upcoming tournament and further enhance his winning record.
