Lakshya Sen and PV Sindhu lead India’s challenge in the Swiss Open


Lakshya Sen is predicted to keep up his winning streak, and PV Sindhu, a two-time Olympic winner, will want to go back to his best at the Swiss Open Super 300 competition.

Prominent Indian shuttler Lakshya Sen is anticipated to carry on his winning streak, and two-time Olympic winner PV Sindhu will look to bounce back at the Swiss Open Super 300 competition, which gets underway on Tuesday. Sen has gathered momentum following his first-round defeats at the Malaysia Super 1000 and India Super 750 earlier this year. The 22-year-old is coming off semifinal finishes at the All England Championships and the French Open when he enters the USD 210,000 tournament. The seventh-seeded Indian player will take on Leong Jun Hao of Malaysia in his opening round. Lee Zii Jia, the 2021 world champion, is probably going to cross paths with him.

In the opening round, former world No. 1 Kidambi Srikanth will play Chinese Taipei’s Wang Tzu-wei, the bronze medallist from the Asian Games, while Priyanshu Rajawat, a new player, will play Lee Cheuk Yiu, the fourth seed from Hong Kong.

Sindhu, who is making a comeback after recuperating from a left knee injury, exited the All England Championship early despite making progress in the French Open earlier this month. The former world champion acknowledged that she made a number of careless mistakes and promised to work on that area.

The fourth-seeded Indian will face Yvonne Li of Germany once more. Last week, in the All England Championship opener against Sindhu, Li retired.

In the quarterfinals, Sindhu will tackle a formidable opponent in Busanan Ongbamrungphan of Thailand. Should she prevail against the Thai shuttler, she is expected to confront the highly skilled and formidable Carolina Marin of Spain, the defending All England champion.

It is a difficult draw for Aakrashi Kashyap, the other Indian competitor in the women’s singles. The winner of the match between Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara and Thailand’s seventh-seeded Ratchanok Intanon will take on the Canadian Michelle Li in the first round of the tournament.

Ashley Ponnappa and Tanisha Crasto, the sixth-seeded team, who have been playing well together, will face Meilysa Trias Puspitasari and Rachel Allessya Rose, an Indonesian combination.

The American team of Annie Xu and Kerry Xu will go up against Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand, who are ranked eighth.
