Former Indian player praises Lakshya Sen’s tactical ability –

Badminton News: The past few months have been a dream come true for India’s young badminton player, Lakshya Sen. A bronze medal at the world championships and now a silver medal at the prestigious championships in England has put Lakshya Sen on top. The Indian Open title and second-best result at the German Open add the necessary embellishments to the perfect all-rounder’s dream gear.

His exploits on the pitch also earned him the best points in the world rankings in ninth place. He will also occupy the top eight seeds in various tournaments as Chinese and world No. 6 Chen Long retires.

Former India international and 2006 Commonwealth Games medalist Trupti Murgunde, in an exclusive interaction with Sportskeeda, said she was delighted to see a fringe player come to prominence on the international stage.

Trupti said the overall performance of badminton players has improved lately. This is attributed to the fact that the Indian badminton support system i.e. government, Badminton Association of India (BAI), Sports Authority of India (SAI ) and SAI’s Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS) obtained the best results.

“It is a good sign for Indian badminton to see the upcoming stars performing well. I am very happy with what is happening in Indian badminton especially after the Olympics. At the start of every Olympic cycle, there will be changes in the sport with players, rookies showing their progress. This time Indian badminton is good enough,” he said.

Trupti has known Lakshya Sen from the start. Both Trupti and Lakshya trained at Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy in Bengaluru. While Trupti was an experienced player at the time, Lakshya was in his formative years, learning and mastering the nuances of the sport.

“I have known Lakshya Sen since I was growing up. We used to train at Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy. He is a very focused player. What is impressive is his ability to constantly challenge and beat the best players. There is a sense of maturity when he takes the court,” he said.

Consistency should be the name of the game for Lakshya Sen

Lakshya broke into the top 10 after a sensational run at the All England Open badminton championships. An increase in the ranking will help the commuter get a good draw and the top eight seeds will also ensure that he doesn’t meet a better player before the quarter-finals of the tournament.

But what matters to Lakshya now? Trupti explains:

“What is important now for Lakshya Sen is to maintain his consistency, his style of play and his strategy. He is new to the circuit, so he has that little element of surprise, but he has to keep it,” said he declared.

“When I look at the next Olympics, which are a few years away, Lakshya Sen knows who the competitors are. He has played against them and he will continue to do so. So he has plenty of time to be a champion among the best in the business when it counts,” he added.

Trupti, who is part of the Olympic Mission Cell of the Indian Ministry of Sports, said Lakshya’s knowledge of the game and the situation was good. He said his ability to read the game quickly would bode well for him in the years to come.

“His ability to make tactical changes during games is amazing. He has a good spirit on the pitch and knows when to attack, when to defend or when to rally. He makes the right moves when and when they are needed,” he said. he.
