Sai Praneeth in action

India’s Sai Praneeth won the 2016 Canada Open after beating Lee Hyun II in convincing fashion 21-12 21-10 in the Men’s Singles final on Sunday.

The Indian looked in great nick from the word go racing away with a 7-2 lead before extending it to 11-3 at the break. The Korean had absolutely no answer to the precision play of the Indian after the interval either, and the 23-year-old converted the second game point opportunity that he got to clinch the opening game 21-12.

If the opening game was bad, then the second one began on an even more sour note for the Korean, as Sai took an astounding 8-0 lead before extending it to 11-5 at the break.

The sorry state of affairs continued for the Korean after the break as the Indian ensured there were no more hiccups, winning the game 21-10 to win his maiden title of the year.
