Lakshya Sen has made it to the final of the Yonex-Sunrise India Open on Saturday. World Championships bronze medalist Lakshya defeated Malaysia’s Ng Tje Yong in the last four to reach the final of his maiden World Tour Super 500 tournament. The 20-year-old from Uttarakhand defeated world ranking 60th-ranked Yong 19-21 21-16 21-12 in a close match of the men’s singles semi-finals.
Third seed Lakshya will take on world champion Loh Kean Yew of Singapore in the final on Sunday. Loh was given a walkover as Canada’s Brian Yang pulled out of the semi-finals after suffering a sore throat and headache. The two players have faced each other in the final of the Dutch Open last year, which was won by fifth seed Loh. Sen has won two Super 100 titles, the Dutch Open and the SaarLorLux Open.
