Singapore shuttler Loh Kean Yew has made the final of the India Open in New Delhi without even needing to play a semi-final match.


Loh, ranked 15th in the world rankings, was due to face off against Canadian Brian Yang, ranked 39th.

But Yang conceded the match after being taken ill with a headache and sore throat. 

He was later tested negative for COVID-19. 


Loh will face off against India’s Lakshya Sen ranked 17th in the final to be held on 16 January.

Sen defeated Malaysia’s Ng Tze Yong 19-21, 21-16, 21-12 in the other semi-final.

The India Open final will be shown on Starhub Channel 205 from 3.30pm onwards on 16 January.
