New Delhi, 16/1: India’s Lakshya Sen produced a magnificent effort to beat world champion Loh Kean Yew of Singapore 24-22 21-17 in the final of men’s singles at the Indian Open. This is Sen’s first BWF World Tour Super 500 title and third overall.
Continuing on his impressive showing in the BWF World Championships where he reached the semi-finals of the 2021 edition, Sen produced a fine performance against Loh as he dominated the fifth-seeded Singaporean shuttler throughout the game.
There was a significant difference in Sen’s style of play against Loh throughout the match as the Indian, who likes to play the attacking game, was quite patient in his rallies against the Singapore player. It was probably a testament to the current world champion’s brilliant defensive game, and Sen did well to breach it.
