Canadian Open 2023 | PV Sindhu and Lakshya Sen seek better returns – News Block

Sindhu, who was a top 10 regular for a few years, dropped to world number 12 and doesn’t look in the best of touches at the moment. Having suffered an injury during CWG 2022, he hasn’t played to his best and would like to change that in Canada, where he is the fourth seed.

That said, she has shone at times, when she was runner-up at the Madrid Masters. She would face local challenger Talia NG in the first round.

On the other hand, eighth-seeded Nozomi Okahara of Japan, against whom Sindhu has a 9-8 win-loss record, is likely to be India’s quarterfinal challenger. Later in the draw, she could face the top seed, Akane Yamaguchi of Japan. Interestingly, Sindhu has a 14-10 record against the Japanese girl.

Sen, one of India’s brightest prospects, has slipped into world no. 19 this year for health reasons. He has made as many as four first-round starts on tour, with his best coming at the Indonesian Masters, where he reached the quarterfinals. He is trying to find shape after his nose job.

“The recovery was not very good. Every time I was training, I would get injured or sick. Then I had to take a step back a bit because, for the first two months, I had no idea it could be this bad. I made a lot of changes to my foot and also to the training load,” he told BWF.

He will face second seed Kunlavut Vitidsarn from thailand in the opening round.
