HS Prannoy wins at Malaysia Masters beating Weng Hong Yang

HS Prannoy emerged victorious at the Malaysia Masters finals against China’s Weng Hong Yang. He defeated Yang by winning two out of three games.

India’s HS Prannoy finally ended his six-year title drought on Sunday, defeating China’s Weng Hong Yang in the men’s singles final of the Malaysia Masters Super 500.

The 30-year-old Prannoy, who is ranked ninth in the world, won 21-19, 13-21, 21-18 in a hard-fought three-game match that lasted 94 minutes.

It was Prannoy’s first title since the 2017 US Open Grand Prix Gold. He had come close to winning several other tournaments since then, including the 2017 Swiss Open and the 2018 Malaysia and Indonesia Super 1000 tournaments.


Prannoy’s victory was a major boost for Indian badminton, which has been struggling to find success in recent years. The last time an Indian men’s singles player won a BWF World Tour title was in 2018 when Kidambi Srikanth won the China Open.


The Indian shuttler’s victory was also a personal triumph for the Indian shuttler. He has been through a lot in recent years, including a serious knee injury that threatened to end his career.

But Prannoy has shown incredible resilience and determination, and he has now finally achieved his dream of winning a major title.

His victory is a sign that Indian badminton is on the rise. With players like Prannoy, Srikanth, and Lakshya Sen, India is well-positioned to compete for major titles in the years to come.

Prannoy’s Road to Victory

Prannoy had a tough road to victory in the Malaysia Masters. He had to overcome some tough opponents, including world number five Chou Tien Chen, All-England champion Li Shi Feng, and Japan’s Kenta Nishimoto.

Prannoy showed great mental strength in all of his matches. He never gave up, even when he was down, and he always found a way to win.

The shuttler reigning from Kerala’s victory in the Malaysia Masters is a major breakthrough for him. It shows that he is capable of competing at the highest level.

Prannoy is now one of the top contenders for the title at the upcoming World Championships. He will be looking to build on his success in the Malaysia Masters and win his first world title.

Prannoy’s Impact on Indian Badminton

Prannoy’s victory is a major boost for Indian badminton. He is one of the most experienced players on the Indian team, and he has a lot of experience playing at the highest level.

His victory will also inspire other Indian players. It shows them that it is possible to win major titles, even if you are not the most naturally gifted player.

Prannoy is a role model for Indian badminton, and his victory is a major step forward for the sport in India.
