#An error from Sugiarto and a point to Dey. The Indian leads 13-9

#Dey leads at the mini-break 11-6. Has a healthy lead but in badminton things change in the blink of an eye. The Indian needs to keep up the good work. The momentum is on his side.

#Dey looks to be in a hurry. Opens up a four-point lead over his opponent.

#Dey leading 5-2 at the moment in men’s singles first round on Day 1 of French Open

World champion PV Sindhu would look to snap her recent run of early exits when she begins her women’s singles campaign at the USD 750,000 French Open badminton tournament, beginning in Paris on Tuesday. Since claiming her maiden World Championships title in August, Sindhu has looked awfully out-of-form as she has failed to cross the second round in three tournaments.

She faltered in the second and first rounds at the China Open and Korea Open respectively last month. Sindhu again exited in the second round in straight games against Korea’s An Se Young in Denmark Open last week.
