India’s experienced player PV Sindhu was successful in reaching the second round by eliminating the tough challenge of Canada’s Michelle Lee in the first round of women’s singles of the French Open Super 750 badminton tournament.

Kidambi Srikanth’s strong victory

In men’s singles, Kidambi Srikanth registered a spectacular win over Chou Tien Chen of Chinese Taipei but HS Prannoy crashed out in the first round.
