Kashyap to lead Indian charge at Denmark Open
New Delhi: Commonwealth Games bronze
medallist shuttler P Kashyap will spearhead Indian challenge
in the Denmark Open Super Series badminton tournament starting
in Odense on Monday.
Kashyap, who beat compatriot Chetan Anand in the bronze
medal play-off during the Games, said he is not looking beyond
the first round where he plays Scott Evans of Ireland.
"I am not thinking about anything else. Playing the first
round is in my mind at this moment," Kashyap told reporters.
Asked about third seed Boonsak Ponsana, whom he is likely
to meet in the second round, Kashyap said, "I haven`t played
him before. He is a good player. Let`s see what happens.”
"There was a little problem with my cuff muscle but now
it is fine. It is always difficult to start after a gruelling
tournament like the Commonwealth Games," he added.
The 2006 Melbourne Games bronze medallist Chetan Anand
will also star in the event after failing to defend his title
in the Dutch Open last week.
World number 17 Chetan, who lost his quarterfinals match
in Dutch Open, will open his campaign against eighth seed Yun
Hu of Hong Kong.
Anand Pawar, who lost in the Dutch open semifinal to
compatriot Ajay Jayaram, will take on Dane Hans-Kristian
Vittinghus in the first round of the men`s singles.
