Lakshya Sen

Post by jaydeep » Thu Aug 17, 2017 5:04 pm

16 yrs old Lakshya Sen lifted his first International Series title outside India ... Overall this was his 2nd International Series title as before this he won Indian International Series title in late 2016 ... Here in Bulgaria, he defeated British top-seed in the first round and Croatian 2nd seed in the final for comeback win ... I am having big hopes from this young lad.

At $8K Eurasia Bulgarian Open 2017, Sofia, Bulgaria (International Series)

Starting a thread on a future sensation. Current junior world #2. He was junior world #1. Good enough for me :-)

Next target: Junior World Championships at Indonesia

Lakshya Sen was seeded #2 but unfortunately lost in the quarters. World Junior Championships He may be the first marquee product Prakash produced. But, he has to improve and be more consistent. Hope the hype does not get to him.

Lakshya has entered into top-100 ranking for the first time ... He posted a nice message on Twitter.
