The 2012 Yonex French Open Super Series tournament

The first round of the 2012 Yonex French Open Super Series tournament gets under way on Wednesday and shows badminton fans how to watch free coverage of French Open live streaming on officially licensed sites like bet365.

Fans can watch the best action from this prestigious event live online and there’s much to look forward to with World No. 4 and Olympic bronze medallist Saina Nehwal of India named top seed and in a rich vein of form.

Nehwal comes into this week’s tournament having landed yet another Super Series title last weekend, after downing Germany’s Juliane Schenk 21-17, 21-8 in the Denmark Open final in Odense on Sunday.

That win saw Nehwal collect her fourth major title of the year and it was certainly a morale boosting success given that the 22-year-old also managed to get the upper-hand over China’s World No. 1 Wang Yihan for the first time in seven attempts in the semi final.

The top seed will take on another Chinese shuttler in the opening round on Wednesday when she comes up against Han Li, whom she has only faced once before, but has beaten.

Speaking to The Times Of India, Nehwal said of her recent success, “I never thought I could win this title in my present situation. But it’s a fantastic feeling, just too good to describe. I did not think about winning because my knee was not good and I had so many other obligations after the Olympic medal.

“Maybe that is the reason, I was fresh and I feel wonderful. I thank the fans here and at home for keeping me focused throughout.”

Yonex French Open live streaming begins at 0755 on Wednesday morning with a host of other top female stars set to grace our screens such as Wang Shixian, Tine Baun and Juliane Schenk to name but a few.

In the men’s singles event meanwhile, Indonesia’s Simon Santoso is top seeded and he’ll vie with the likes of number two seed Sho Sasaki of Japan and third seed Peter Gade from Denmark for top honours.
