Swiss Open 2022 Final Highlights, PV Sindhu vs Busanan Ongbamrungphan: PV Sindhu won her maiden Swiss Open title by beating Busanan Ongbamrungphan 21-16, 21-8 in straight games. Unlike the first game, which saw the two shuttler matching each other for points, the second was a breeze for Sindhu as the 26-year-old cruised to victory. Busanan could hardly muster an offence as Sindhu kept building the lead, and soon enough, the 2019 World Champion made it a one-sided affair. The Jakobshalle arena in Basel gives Sindhu another lucky outing as in 2019 she became a world champion here, beating Nozomi Okuhara in an epic final of the Badminton World Championships. Three years later, Sindhu adds another feather in her cap and although this may be a Super 300 tournament, the win will hold her in good stead for a season that will require a lot out of her.

Swiss Open final: Great opportunity for Sindhu
For India's star shuttler Sindhu, who won an Olympic Bronze medal last year, this is a fine opportunity to fine tune herself ahead of a busy season.
