Double Olympic medalist PV Sindhu and All England open silver medalist Lakshya Sen will lead India’s charge at the Korea Open Super 500 tournament starting on Tuesday. Both Sen and Sindhu have been in superb form off late. Sindhu won the Swiss Open title last week while Sen reached back-to-back finals at the German Open and All England championships. Other than Sen and Sindhu, the top Indian shuttlers to feature in the competition are HS Prannoy, Kidambi Srikanth, the doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy- Chirag Shetty, among others, as they vie to keep the good streak of wins going for Indian badminton.

Sen will start his campaign against world No.25 Lu Guang Zu of China while Sindhu will be up against Lauren Lam from the USA. World No. 23 Prannoy, who battled multiple health issues to reach the Swiss open final, will open his campaign against Malaysia’s June Wei Cheam and Srikanth is set to play Daren Liew.

London Olympics bronze medalist Saina Nehwal hasn’t been in great form since the last year or so and the 32-year-old Indian will be hoping to put up a better show when she begins against Japan’s Asuka Takahashi. 

Indian badminton has been producing some phenomenal results in the last two years and the number of world class shuttlers that we are producing right now is a testament that we are on the right path. The Korea Open is being held after two years and it’s going to be a happy hunting ground for the Indian shuttlers, who had a brilliant outing in Europe, securing medals in every tournament they participated in.
