It was Sindhu’s second Syed Modi title, following her annexation of the BWF World Tour Super 300 event in 2017.

The two-time Olympic medalist’s victory in Lucknow will boost her confidence for the rest of the season, as she looks to win the All England Open before leading India’s campaign at the Commonwealth and Asian Games in 2022.
