Denmark Open 2019 saw P.V. Sindhu defeat Gregoria Mariska in the opening round to keep her record 5-0 against the Indonesian. There was another good but unexpected news for the Indian contingent at the tournament.
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. It was the first time that Praneeth has secured a victory against Lin Dan.
Hyderabad born Sai Praneeth will be facing Ken Momota of Japan, the current number 1 in the next round. The Indian shuttler will be looking to take revenge for the loss in Basel in the World Championships.
