Earlier in the grand tournament of BWF World Championships 2019, Sindhu marked a historic win against Japanese opponent Nozomi Okuhara in the final showdown. The 24-year-old was head over heels after defeating the tough contender with a great margin of 21-7, 21-7 at St. Jakobshalle, Basel.

However, Sindhu faced the back-to-back shocking defeats in both China Open and Korea Open respectively since her historic win at the World Championships. But now in Denmark Open 2019, she is looking forward to grab the renowned title in another international tournament.

If Sindhu will clinch the prestigious title of Denmark Open this year then this will be her maiden title of the grand tournament. It will be interesting to see whether the star Indian shuttler PV Sindhu will be able to register her maiden title of Denmark Open this year or not.

Apart from Sindhu, other Indian badminton stalwarts like Saina Nehwal, World Championships bronze medallist Sai Praneeth, Parupalli Kashyap, HS Prannoy, Kidambi Srikanth and Sameer Verma will also join the fray at ongoing tournament. When on one side, Praneeth will face a tricky opponent Lin Dan of China in the opening round, former Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Kashyap, on the other,  battle against Sitthikom Thammasin of Thailand. While their Indian mate Kidambi Srikanth will be facing local star Anders Antonsen in her opening battle. However, HS Prannoy is going to battle with eighth-seeded Indonesian Anthony Sinisuka Ginting.

Meanwhile, in women’s singles category, the London Olympic bronze medallist Saina Nehwal will lock horns with Sayaka Takahashi of Japan in her first round on Tuesday. All the Indian shuttlers are ready for the enthralling action at Denmark Open 2019. Only time will tell which Indian star will get a chance to move ahead in the fray.
