On August 19th, Vietnamese players will enter the first round of men's singles, women's singles and women's doubles of 2019 BWF World Championships, taking place in Basel (Switzerland).

In the first round of men's singles, Pham Cao Cuong (world ranking 105) will meet Kento Momota (Japan, No. 1 in the world), while Nguyen Tien Minh (world ranking 59) meets Lin Dan (China, 17th place in the world).

Specifically, Nguyen Tien Minh will meet "the living legend" Lin Dan (China, 17th in the world) - Olympic champion in 2008, 2012. In the past, 2 players have met each other 7 times and Nguyen Tien Minh are all defeated by Chinese players.

Meanwhile, Pham Cao Cuong faces even greater challenges when his opponent is the No. 1 player in the world and also the defending champion Kento Momota (Japan). Kento Momota has a very good performance over the past time, while Pham Cao Cuong has a physical problem before the tournament, as evidenced by the fact that he was soon to give up at the last league in Dong Nai.

With the current level and ranking difference, it will be difficult for Pham Cao Cuong to surprise the Japanese player. In the only meeting ever before in the 2012 World Youth Tournament, Pham Cao Cuong failed to defeat the 20/22, 9/21 before the opponent.

In the first women's singles, Vu Thi Trang (72nd in the world) will meet Kristin Kuuba (Estonia, 60th in the world). Do Tuan Duc / Pham Nhu Thao's first pair match with Smilowski / Swierzynska (Poland).
