Denmark Open: PV Sindhu, B Sai Praneeth Lose in Second Round

Indian shuttlers PV Sindhu and B Sai Praneeth lost their respective second round matches at the Denmark Open in Odense on Thursday, 17 October.

Fifth seed Sindhu lost to An Se-young 14-21, 17-21 while Praneeth went down 6-21, 14-21 against top seed Kento Momota at the BWF World Tour Super 750 event.

This was Sindhu's third successive early exit from a tournament since claiming the World Championship at Basel, Switzerland in August.

The 24-year-old Indian had lost in the second round and first round at the China Open and Korea Open respectively in the last two events.

It turned out to be a dismal day for India as Sameer Verma and men's doubles pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty also went down in straight games in their second rounds.

While Sameer lost 12-21 10-21 to Olympic champion Chen Long of China in men's singles, Thailand Open champions Satwik and Chirag suffered a 16-21 15-21 defeat against sixth seed Chinese combination of Han Cheng Kai and Zhou Hao Dong.
