April 06, 2022      Announcement

20-year old Lakshya Sen's spectacular run was finally halted at the All-England Open Badminton Championship in Birmingham on Sunday.

Lakshya Sen lost to World No.1 Victor Axelsen 21-10, 21-15 in a well-contested men's singles final that lasted 53 minutes and settled for silver at the All-England Championships.

Although the scores suggested a one-sided encounter, the match was far from it. The unseeded Sen fought hard throughout the summit clash but could not convert his efforts into points.

With the defeat, Sen missed the chance to become the third Indian after Prakash Padukone (1980) and Pullela Gopichand (2001) to win the All-England title.

It was Lakshya’s maiden final of the world’s oldest tournament.
