India's Saina Nehwal will look to make up for her disappointing show at home when she takes on Jiayuan Chen of Singapore in women's singles of the Malaysia Open Grand Prix in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday.
Saina, who crashed out of the India Open Super Series in the first round last week, is the top seed in the tournament.
The Indian was stunned by Japan's Ai Goto, who is placed in the bottom half of the draw and will take on eighth seed Jie Yao of the Netherlands.
Other Indians in fray on the opening day in men's draw are Ajay Jayram, Ananad Pawar, Arvind Bhat, Anup Sridhar, Parupalli Kashyap and Guru Sai Dutt. Sai Dutt reached the quarter final of India Open Super Series.
