(ANI): Two-time Olympic medalist PV Sindhu and Commonwealth Games champion Lakshya Sen will be spearheading India’s challenge for the Madrid Spain Masters competition starting from Tuesday.

In the women’s competition, there will be players like Malvika Bansod and Ashmita Chaliha as well. The Indian men’s badminton singles contingent will feature fifth-seed Lakshya and seventh-seed Kidambi Srikanth. Sen reached the quarterfinals of the French Open and All England Open, but could not make past the round two in the Swiss Open. Kidambi reached the semis of Swiss Open, making his first semis appearance at a BWF World Tour competition since November 2022.
