The Swiss Super 300: PV Sind holds the title

After a poor run of play at the Swiss Open Extremely 300 competition, the ongoing hero PV Sindhu needs to make a change.

PV Sindhu will endeavor to recapture his triumphant courses in the Swiss Open Very 300 competition, which starts on Tuesday.

World number nine HS Prannoy, who finished second in the previous competition but lost in the All England Championships’ second round, will also try to get better.

However, China’s Shi Yuqi, a silver medalist from the 2018 world championships who finished second in Birmingham last week, will be a difficult opponent for the Indian fifth seed.

Sindhu and Lakshya Sen have fought this season, but Sindhu and Lakshya Sen have lost early in a number of matches. Prannoy has always been the nation’s best singles player.

Sindhu quit working with Korean mentor Park Tae-sang after his drawn out injury cutback didn’t work out. This past week, Zhang Yi Man of China defeated Sindhu in the first round.

In an effort to regain her confidence, double Olympic medalist Sindhu will compete against local Jenjira Stadelmann in her first USD 210,000 event.

In a fierce match last week, Sen defeated Anders Antonsen, a former world number two from Denmark who has won two medals. Sen had already withdrawn early from the Malaysia and India Opens.

The eighth seed will have to contend with Hong Kong’s Lee Cheuk Yiu and possibly India’s Kidambi Srikanth. In the first round, the 23-year-old Chinese player Weng Hong Yang will take on the eighth seed.

After reaching two semifinals in a row at All England, the women’s doubles team of Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand will face Indonesia’s second-seeded Apriyani Rahayu and Siti Fadia Silva Ramadhanti in the first round.

The best Indian men’s doubles team, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty, played well before narrowly losing to China. The pair that qualified for the main draw will face the tenth-ranked Wang Chang and Liang Wei Keng.

Men’s and women’s duos consisting of MR Arjun and Dhruv Kapila, Ashwini Bhat K and Shikha Gautam, and Krishna Prasad Garaga and Vishnuvardhan Goud are also competing.
