Day 1 Recap

It was a mixed day for Indian shuttlers in Odense as they suffer contrasting fates at the just-started Denmark Open on Tuesday. World Champion PV Sindhu made an impressive start to her campaign, claiming a straight-game win over Indonesia’s Gregoria Mariska Tunjung in the women’s singles event.

Fifth seed Sindhu, who had made early exits in China and Korea, got back her bearing as she overcame former World Junior Champion Gregoria 22-20, 21-18 in 38 minutes to keep her 5-0 record intact against the Indonesian. The Olympic silver medallist will now face Korea’s An Se Young next.

In the men’s singles, World Championships bronze medallist B Sai Praneeth also made it to the second round beating the legendary Lin Dan 21-14, 21-17 in a 35-minute opening round clash.

The Hyderabad shuttler is likely to meet world no 1 and two-time world champion Kento Momota of Japan next. He had lost to Momota at the World Championships in Basel, Switzerland.

Thailand Open champions Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty also made a good start to their men’s doubles campaign, beating Korean pair of Kim Gi Jung and Lee Yong Dae 24-22, 21-11 in 39 minutes.
