Lakshya Sen lifts fourth title of the season winning Scottish Open

Lakshya Sen is on a roll as he bags his fourth title in three months winning the Scottish Open on Sunday. Lakshya beat Brazilian Ygor Coelho in the men’s singles 18-21, 21-18, 21-19 in 56 minutes.

Since September, he has won SaarLorLux Open, Dutch Open, and Belgian International. With this win, Lakshya will break into the top-40 in the BWF rankings. He will also move closer to a direct qualification in the top grade 2 events.

Lakshya now joins the league of fellow Indians Anand Pawar (2010 and 2012), Arvind Bhatt (2004) and Pullela Gopichand (1999) to win the Scottish Open title.

After this, the next destination for Lakshya is the Syed Modi International Super 300 tournament at Lucknow starting Tuesday.
