India's campaign at the USD 775,000 Denmark Open came to a disappointing end with the trioka of PV Sindhu, B Sai Praneeth and Sameer Verma -- all-exiting after suffering straight-game losses, in Odense, Denmark on Thursday. World Champion Sindhu, seeded fifth, yet again struggled to buck the trend of recent early exits as she was knocked out after she lost 14-21, 17-21 to Korea's An Se Young in a 40-minute second-round women's singles clash at the BWF World Tour Super 750 event. This was Sindhu's third successive early exit from a tournament since claiming the World Championship at Basel, Switzerland in August.
The 24-year-old Indian had lost in the second and first round at the China Open and Korea Open respectively in the last two events.
