In anticipation of the Paris Olympics, star Indian shuttlers Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty are set to defend their doubles title at the Indonesia Open Super 1000, starting Tuesday.

Ranked as the top-seeded Indian pair, they are among the favorites for Olympic gold, having shown impressive performance this season with four final appearances and two wins at the French Open Super 750 and Thailand Open Super 500. However, they faced challenges from Indonesian and Chinese opponents in recent tournaments.

As they start their campaign against Malaysia's Man Wei Chong and Kai Wun Tee, Satwik and Chirag aim to regain their top form. With the Paris Olympics just two months away, Indian shuttlers have few opportunities left to refine their skills. PV Sindhu also faces a test of resilience after a recent mixed showing, while Lakshya Sen and HS Prannoy aim for strong performances amid fierce competition.
