India Open 2022: PV Sindhu has it easy for once

PV Sindhu, the tallest badminton player in India, is not used to having things easy before the medal hangs around her neck. Her 2019 World Championship crown might have come dominant, but for the perennial high-performance player, who operates through the toughest times of women’s badminton, no podium has come without one or the other Top Tenner dragging her down to those three. tense and punishing sets. That he quenches his fans’ nervousness by pulling out these complicated preparations for the final big day is a testament to his consistency. But every now and then, Sindhu deserves a break. A respite on the court where he faces opponents who do not come stomping, commanding a minimum commitment of 45 minutes full of dizzying recoveries.

The 2022 Indian Open gives Sindhu, a five-time world medalist and double Olympian, that rare title shot, on a platter. With the circulating virus depleting the competition draws, the Indian will get some slow-paced initial rounds, including some would-be Indians.

That India does not have an outstanding player in women’s singles after Sindhu is not a secret. Forget nipping at her heels, the next Indian crop can’t be said to be a long way behind her in terms of horse racing. To put it bluntly, they may not appear in the same frame as her. This gap becomes huge, not only because Sindhu’s achievements are staggeringly otherworldly in a very mediocre shuttle universe, but also because none of the younger players have come forward in time to attract attention.

Perhaps India was foolishly screwed up after Saina Nehwal and Sindhu reached the highest grades in their teens, and did not entertain themselves in junior or lower level tournaments. However, the follow-up burst hasn’t been very bright. However, the likes of Sri Krishna Priya Kudaravalli and Ira Sharma will win the show’s court to leave an impression, no matter how gulf in class it may appear.

Ashmita Chaliha, the Assamese left-hander, is a classic case of what India’s second row should have been with her balmy left-handed play. But he has fallen away from the top competition, partly because of the pandemic, but also due to a lack of precise planning, given that he is still in Guwahati and is barely on the circuit.

Rituparna Das, the graceful player with a pitiful physical form, and the energetic Riya Mookherjee, who have crossed the national level, have failed to make an international mark. And this Indian Open is that one chance to play the main draw, as if their lives depended on it, because rarely will a field shrink so much that Indian national players get a shoo-in.

Aakarshi Kashyap, training as a substitute for Sindhu at the Suchitra academy, has been in good shape in qualifying tournaments at the national level. While Malvika Bansod and Samiya Farooqui might be the most intriguing first-round matchup, with the expected prize, facing Saina Nehwal, the original dominant.

Nehwal’s fitness has massive and persistent question marks, but in addition to first-round opponent Tereza Svavikova, she has a full room filled with young Indian women seeking a victory against her. Defeating Saina Nehwal will set them up for a season, in case any of them find the courage to show the original a healthy disrespect by taking away the kill points.

However, for Sindhu, the only two names who can challenge her are Singaporean Yeo Jia Min in the semi-finals (watch out for the Loh Kean Yew effect) and second-seeded Thai Busanan Ongbamrungphan in the final. But in reality, it is PV Sindhu’s title that he must lose. Early picks in a season that can start with good training at home after all the near misses and aggravations of 2021. A title is a title, and if India is opening the season, then Sindhu could also pocket first in many. months.
