Basel: All England Championships finalist Lakshya Seno pulled out of the Swiss Open Super 300 tournament on Monday to get some rest after two weeks of grueling badminton.
The 20-year-old from Almora has made back-to-back final appearances at the German Open and All England Championships in the past two weeks.
“He’s not playing the Swiss Open because he’s feeling tired. He’s informed the Badminton Association of India. So he’ll come back to Bangalore, get 7-10 days of rest and then go to the Korean Open,” Sen’s mentor Vimal Kumar told PTI .
Sen was slated to take on fellow Native American Sameer Verma in his campaign opener.
A product of the Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy in Bengaluru, Sen has been in sensational form for the past six months.
He took his first World Cup bronze in December before winning his first Super 500 title at India Open in January and finishing second at the German Open last week.
Sen then followed his mentor Prakash Padukone by reaching the final of the All England Championships before taking a creditable second place finish.
A hectic season awaits for Indian shuttles with big ticket events such as Commonwealth Games and Asian Games this year, in addition to the regular BWF World Tour events including the World Championships and World Tour Finals.
