    Yeah. Read this article this evening. He might be willing to enter seniors . We have to respect them. Hope he may not become another siril verma. Siril is nowhere on the scene now whereas Antonsen and Kantaphon whom he has beaten in WJC is already world beaters. Really sad,

    Lakshya is getting support from OGQ since he was 11 yo. Prakash Padukone was selective in his words after Lakshya Sen triumphed in finals of India IC .He said "The talent is there. He's getting every support he needs from us , government, association and SAI. Now it's totally up to him whether he wants to reach the top or not."

    Siril Verma story is full of disappointment. Don't know whether he was injured or there was not proper planning done for him. He's young , I hope he does the hard work and reach a good rank.

    Personally, I wanted Lakshya to feature in WJC one last time. Kunlavut will be aiming for third consecutive title for sure next year.

    Impressed by his performance in China Masters 100 tournament. To be honest, I didn't expect him to cross the first round as he was up against LKY of Singapore. Then looking at the draw , I thought maybe he'll lose to Zhao Zeqi in QF. Then he won against LKY in straight games , then won against Korean in two straight games. Then came the tough test against Zhao Zeqi.

    Lakshya upset ZZ. And to beat a Chinese in China is an uphill task. Lakshya came back from the first game loss to clinch two successive games and beating a top 50 player was a good feat by this youngstar who has started getting a good exposure. In semis, Lakshya lost the first game to Wen Hongyang quite convinvingly. Wen played pretty well. Lakshya then won the second game. And then came the decider. Lakshya was trailing 17-13 , he then levelled scores 17-17 but two crucial line calls went against him. In or out who knows,hawk eye would have solved the case. Then he lost the decider 21-17. Well played by him.

    I hope this loss motivates Lakshya to do way better and bring laurels. Next is Orleans Masters where he'll play against familiar opponent Kunlavut Vitidsarn in round 1.

    Each player's performance should be looked at over a 4 year time frame. This is Lakshya Sen's first year on the senior circuit.

    Year 1 - 2019 No expectations just exposure and getting used to playing in different conditions and low level senior tournaments like BWF Tour Super 100 and BWF World Tour Super 300
    Year 2- 2020 Quarterfinal appearances in BWF World Tour Super 500
    Year 3- 2021 Semifinal appearances in BWF World Tour Super 500, 750 and 1000
    Year 4- 2022 Finals and Titles in BWF World Tour Super 500, 750 and 1000

    During year 3 and year 4 Laskshya will have better fitness, endurance and match experience. Any titles and good performance before year 4 is a bonus like the China Masters 2019 Tour Super 100 Semifinal finish.

    Exactly what I wanted to emphasize. We have to remember he's 17 not 22. Thus, getting used to senior competition and gameplay is crucial. That's why I was hesitant to say that LS will be the prime contender for China Masters 2019 title as I haven't seen WHY or LHC play. The way he played against LDK in PBL was magnificent. Though that happened in a commercial league , not a BWF sanctioned event. Targets are necessary and you, Sir have put it spot on.

    Lakshya Sen, only 17 years old, is a budding talent, nurture him well. He is a bright prospect for the WJC these two years but, personally, I won't place too much emphasis on the junior championships, winning it once will do, better to transition him earlier to the senior pro circuit where it really matters. No big deal being a multiple WJC titlist, like Intanon Ratchanok, a three-time WJC winner (So what ?).

    The coaches have decided to transition Lakshya Sen to the senior circuit. He will no longer participate in WJC or any junior tournaments. He will have to look at winning WC medals at the senior level. This transition phase from junior to senior is an exciting and important phase. I would like to fast forward 3-4 years but have to wait patiently as he develops as a player. :)

    Lakshya Sen has been on a long tour after the Senior Nationals. He has traveled from Spain - China - France - Poland.
    He has played well in two tournaments China and Poland, on the tour so far. He is young has time to learn, adapt and become a better player.

    @Baddie lover This is really exciting. In New Zealand, he will already compete against four senior Indian players, who will also try their hardest to get that second spot for Tokyo behind Kidambi.

    It's really ambitious of him to think of qualifying for Tokyo. Already there's so much competition among 4-5 Indian MS. Anyways , good luck to him. He should take step by step and plan accordingly.

    Lakshya game for the grind
    Lakshya Sen has improved his skills through these methods and broken into the top 70 in the world.

    Indian badminton star Lakshya Sen

    ByExpress News Service

    Excerpt:
    Although these methods are useful, Sen’s muscles are not fully developed yet and his young mind tends to be impatient, leading to mistakes which prove crucial on many occasions. A mental trainer and yoga are helping him manage this part. Kumar is happy with his progress and feels that by the end of the year, top 50 is a realistic target.

    He needs patience and that will come with age. But since he is young, when you push hard, soreness becomes a problem. He is working on the physical side but as coaches, we have to be careful,” Kumar said.

    “The aim now will be to improve his ranking and gain entry into Super Series meets.” For Sen, what matters most in his first full year at the senior level is exposure. “The list is long for improvements — fitness, endurance, strength, speed, power and then little things on the court. With a packed calendar, I don’t get time for full training. So the focus remains on full-fledged training before tournaments.”

    Yupps. He mentioned his aim is to reach top 30 by year end and also try to qualify for Tokyo 2020. Let's see what's in the store. But clearly, his coaches are planning well, not being too ambitious, making him play in IC, WT100, WTS300 tournaments. It was a wise and tactical move not to make him play in Indian Open WTS500 where he would have started as a qualifier and could have amassed good ranking points. Instead , he played Polish Open IC which was his third tournament in three successive weeks (China WT100, Orleans Masters WT100 and then Polish Open). Looking forward to NZ WTS300.
