New Delhi: PV Sindhu, an Indian ace shuttler, defeated Thailand’s Busanan Ongbamrungphan in women’s singles final in the Swiss Open Super 300 badminton tournament on Sunday.
Sindhu, who is on seventh position in the world, notched up the title after defeating her rival, the fourth-seeded Thai, by 21-16 21-8 at the St. Jakobshalle. Sindhu, a double Olympic medallist, took 49 minutes to defeat the Thai player and this was her second title this season.
She has happy memories of this venue as she had claimed the World Championships gold in 2019. Sindhu had won the Syed Modi International Super 300 in Lucknow in January this year. Super 300 tournaments are the second lowest tier of BWF Tour events.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated PV Sindhu for her success. Modi tweeted, “Congratulations to @Pvsindhu1 on winning the Swiss Open 2022. Her accomplishments inspire the youth of India. Best wishes to her for her future endeavours.”
