Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty ended their first win of the season by clinching the prestigious BWF French Open 2024 title on Sunday. The top-ranked pair defeated Lee Jhe-Huei and Yang Po-Hsuan of Chinese Taipei 21-13, 21-16 in straight games in the men’s doubles. 

Having lost straight three BWF finals, the world no.1 pair dominated their opponents with an easy win in 36 minutes. They were famously beaten in the finals of the Malaysia Masters and Indian Open in January this year but ended their final hoodoo ahead of the Paris Olympics 2024.

  1. Men’s singles – Shi Yu Qi (China) beat Kunlavut Vitidsarn 
  2. Women’s singles – An Si Young (South Korea) beat Akane Yamaguchi
