  • DAN TRAVERS and Christine Black will lead Scotland’s medal bid at the European Senior Championships in Portugal at the end of September. Top seed Travers, the men’s singles Under 55 world champion from last September in Ankara, will defend the European title he won two years ago in Sofia with old rival Yuri Smirnov of Russia seeded to meet him again in the final. He and Black, the reigning world Under 55 mixed doubles champions, and top seeds will also be out to improve on their European silver from two years ago. Travers is chasing a title hat-trick as he and Denmark’s Jesper Helledie defend their doubles title as top seeds. Black, who won her first seniors title back in 1995 in the under 40 women’s singles, will be looking to go one better than two years ago when she won the silver medal behind Germany’s Heidi Bender in the Under 55s. Bender is top seed with Black at No.2. She and Dutch player Marjan Ridder will go into the women’s doubles as top seeds after their world title win last year.

  • KIRSTY GILMOUR leads Scotland’s squad into action when the Li-Ning BWF World Championships start in Copenhagen’s Ballerup Super Arena on Monday. Just three weeks after her silver medal success at the Commonwealth Games the 20-year-old from Hamilton is the first Scot into action when she faces Germany’s Karin Schnaase in the women’s singles first round. The two players have met twice with the honours even. Gilmour, who is ranked 15 places higher at a career-best No. 16 won most recently in straight games in the semi-finals of the Swedish Masters, which she went on to win in January. Schaase’s win came back in 2011 at the Bulgarian International. Commonwealth bronze medallist Imogen Bankier is also in action on the opening day when she tackles the women’s doubles in the evening session. She and Bulgarian Petya Nedelcheva face Indonesia’s Suci Rizky Andini and Tiara Rosalia Nuraidah. The world No. 19s lost to the Indonesians in the Yonex All England Championships first round in March, going down 11-21 21-16 21-17.
