  3. Who to look out for?

    The opening day of the tournament saw 80 games played across all disciplines with several British athletes starting their bids to become the first All England winners since mixed doubles pairing Nathan Roberts and Gail Emms in 2005.

    Hoping to replicate the 2005 duo, England's Marcus Ellis and Lauren Smith moved a step closer to that goal by reaching the second round of mixed doubles. The pair fought back from the edge of elimination to beat China's He Jiting and Du Yue, and will play Malaysia's Goh Soon Huat and Lai Shevon Jemie for a place in the quarter-finals.

    Elsewhere England's Chris and Gabrielle Adcock, who are seeded sixth for the Championships, will face fellow compatriots Ben Lane and Jessica Pugh in round two of the mixed doubles after both duos won their respective first-round ties in two games.

    There was some disappointment for the British contingent as 2016 Olympic quarter-finalist and British number one Rajiv Ouseph was defeated 16-21, 19-21 by Tommy Sugiarto of Indonesia whilst Scotland's Kirsty Gilmour also lost 21-17, 21-8 to India's Saina Nehwal in the women's singles.

  5. The badminton couple taking their baby on tour

    Christinna Pedersen and Kamilla Rytter Juhl

    Had things gone the way they planned, Christinna Pedersen and Kamilla Rytter Juhl would have missed the biggest tournament of the badminton year.

    A pregnancy test on the eve of last year's All England Championships would decide whether they participated or not.

    Had two lines appeared, the Danish Olympic silver medallists would have pulled out. They didn't - and five days later they won the most prestigious title of their careers.

    "We were hoping I would already be pregnant," Rytter Juhl tells BBC Sport.

    "It was a crazy feeling to go to England not knowing whether we would play or not. We hadn't practised for the two weeks before."

    You can read more about Pedersen and Rytter Juhl's initial struggle with their same-sex relationship, their decision to keep it private, and their experiences as parents here.
