Lakshya Sen withdraws from Swiss Open

Lakshya Sen had made continuous final appearances at the German Open and All England Championships in the last two weeks.

All England Championships finalist Lakshya Sen on Monday backed out of the Swiss Open Super 300 tournament to get some rest after two weeks of gruelling badminton.

Sen from Almora made back-to-back final appearances at the German Open and All England Championships in the last two weeks.

“He is not playing Swiss Open as he is feeling tired. He has informed Badminton Association of India. So he will be back to Bangalore, get 7-10 days of rest and then go for Korean Open,” said Sen’s mentor Vimal Kumar.

Sen was scheduled to face fellow Indian Sameer Verma in his campaign opener.
