    Malaysia Open: Lakshya, Srikanth hope for a bright start in Olympic year

    All eyes, however, will be on Lakshya and Srikanth as they fight to get into the top 16 of the Race to Paris - Olympic qualification rankings after enduring contrasting fates last season.

    World no. 16 Lakshya's only glimpse of fiery form came to the fore when he claimed the Canada Open Super 500 in July last year, but since then his form dipped. So much so that Lakshya had to endure a quarter-final defeat to Bharat Raghav at the 85th Senior National Championships.

    World no.24 Srikanth, on the other hand, was inconsistent throughout the year. He could not even make it to a single semifinal despite playing four quarterfinals.

    At the Malaysia Open, things are not going to be easy for Lakshya and Srikanth as they face tough competitors in China’s Weng Hong Yang and sixth seed Jonatan Christie of Indonesia respectively in the opening rounds.

    Meet child prodigy Ridhima Kapoor, yearning to become an Indian golfing sensation

    Ridhima Kapoor, now aged nine, affirmed her penchant for golf, an off-beat sport for a child in the pretext of the Indian sports ecosystem, with a sign of making it big. Starting golf at seven in 2021, she emerged as the overall champion of the Indian Golf Union in the Under-9 category in 2023.

    Showing remarkable tenacity to pick up the skills, Ridhima, a resident of Bengaluru, claimed several domestic titles and made many runner-up finishes last year. It was a year when Ridhima displayed incredible consistency and game awareness.

    After she made a runner-up finish at Coorg, she pledged to assert her domination over the tour, claiming four events in a row.

    'Comeback is always stronger than the setback'. With this motto, Ridhima swept four IGU Sub Junior tour events, three in April and one in May, in Coimbatore, Kodaikanal, Ooty and Bengaluru, respectively.

    Now she is vying for more titles, as her ultimate aim is to become an Indian golfing sensation, following her superstar idols.

    "My favourite golfers are Seve and Nelly Koda, and in India Subhankar Sharma and Aditi Ashok," Ridhima told The Bridge.
