Making an impressive run on the BWF tour, young Indian badminton Lakshya Sen has qualified for the upcoming Badminton World Tour Finals, scheduled to be held in Bali, Indonesia from 1st to 5th December 2021.
The 20-year-old Lakshya Sen has been showing remarkable badminton skills over the last couple of months and even broke into the BWF Top 20.
Sen’s qualification chances did look less despite his performances but with Chinese Taipei’s Chou Tien Chen, the current World No. 4 suffering a shock loss against Japan’s Kenta Nishimoto, 21-18, 15-21, 11-21 at the ongoing Indonesia Open 2021, Lakshya Sen’s Road to Bali ticket got confirmed.
While the official list is yet to be released but if we are to go by the points gathered in the slew of tournaments in the last few months, Lakshya Sen’s berth for the year-ending BWF World Tour Finals is sealed. With this qualification, Lakshya Sen becomes the youngest Indian badminton player to make the cut for the BWF World Tour Finals, ever since it started in 2018.
Lakshya Sen’s has been to the semi-finals of the Denmark Masters 2021, the quarter-finals of the French Open 2021, the semi-finals of the Hylo Open 2021, and most importantly, the finals of the Dutch Open 2021, where he lost to Singapore’s Loh Kean Yew.
