India has a new badminton prodigy, its Lakshya Sen.
Beating China’s Weng Hong Yang in an absolute thriller match, Lakshya won his second successive BWF World Tour 100 title at the SaarLorLux Open that was held at Saarbrucken, Germany.

In a 59 minute game worthy of a final, both players went at it with all their might. The Indian badminton player overthrew Weng 17-21, 21-18 and 21-16 in the summit clash for his third successive singles title of the season.
With a good start, Lakshya was leading the match when the tables turned. He couldn’t sustain the pressure and lost the second set in the game. But, the player quickly got back to his best shots, clinching the match from Weng. After this win, the 18 year-old is a part of the top 50 BWF rankings.
Happy to win 3rd consecutive title and my second Bwf super 100 event. Would like to thank all my coaches sponsors and all the people who were supporting me in the hall today. @OGQ_India @Herbalifeindia @BAI_Media @YonexInd @Sports_PDCSE #prakashpdukoneacademy pic.twitter.com/5knoEPlLUH
