Basel: Ace Indian shuttler Pusarla Venkata Sindhu today steamrolled her way to the second singles title of the season with a straight-game win over Thailand’s Busanan Ongbamrungphan in the title clash of the Swiss Open Super 300. Earlier in January this year, she had got her first Super 300 title by winning the Syed Modi International.

She thoroughly dominated the game and took just 49 minutes to defeat Busanan Ongbamrungphan.

Sindhu had lost the Swiss Open final to Carolina Marin last year. However, against Busanan she had an impeccable record and with her win today, the double Olympic medalist improved her head to head against the Thai shuttler to 16-1.
Congratulatory messages started pouring in soon thereafter. Congratulating Sindhu, Vice President N. Venkaiah Naidy said this achievement once again testifies her phenomenal talent and inspires young badminton players to excel on the international stage.
