Badminton: Canada Open from today, Indian has won only once

The Canada Open, a Super 500 tournament on the Badminton World Tour, is set to begin on Tuesday, with Indian players PV Sindhu and Lakshya Sen among the contenders. In the history of the tournament, only one Indian has won the singles championship, with Bisai Praneeth taking home the men’s singles title in 2016. This year, Indian players have a chance to make history.
However, Sindhu’s recent form has been poor, having been knocked out in the first round of two tournaments after reaching the final of the Madrid Masters in April. She will face local challenger Talia Ng in the first round of the Canada Open. Despite her recent struggles, Sindhu is a two-time Olympic medalist and has the potential to turn things around. Lakshya Sen, on the other hand, has also been struggling with form, having been eliminated in the first round of four tournaments this year. He will face second seed Kun Vidas in the first round of the Canada Open. Despite his recent struggles, Lakshya is a talented player and has the potential to cause an upset.
Overall, the Canada Open promises to be an exciting tournament, with top players from around the world competing for the championship. Indian players Sindhu and Lakshya will be looking to make their mark and bring home the title.
