Hong Kong Open 2019, PV Sindhu vs Busanan Ongbamrungphan : Where to watch, TV schedule, live stream details and more
PV Sindhu sailed into the second round of the Hong Kong Open 2019 with an easy win over Korea's Kim Ga Eun, and she will now face Thailand's Busanan Ongbamrungphan in the Round of 32 on Thursday.
Ranked 6th in the women's division, Sindhu is the only female Indian player who will participate in the second round at the event, after Saina Nehwal lost her first-round match.
Sindhu looked in a great form during her match against Kim Ga Eun. Winning the match 21-15, 21-16 in just 36 minutes, Sindhu was at her best against her opponent. However, the fact is that Sindhu has been trying to find form since a few months, and not only has she gone title-less, the reigning World Champion has not managed to reach a single final since August 2019.
However, the Hyderabad shuttler told the media after her first round win at Hong Kong that she has focused on being injury free, with the 2020 Tokyo Olympics inching closer. She will try to go the distance at this tournament and lift her first BWF World Tour title of 2019.
Playing against Busanan, who is currently ranked 18th in the world, Sindhu will fancy her chances of picking up a win. If she goes on to win the match, she will square off against the winner from the Akane Yagamuchi vs Aya Ohori match.
