HS Prannoy pull off a major upset, defeats triple Olympic medallist & Former World no.1  Lee Chong Wei




India’s H S Prannoy registered his second successive victory over former world number one Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia to reach the men’s singles quarterfinals of the Denmark Superseries Premier badminton tournament at Odenese on Thursday.

The world number 14 Indian, who had first defeated the two-time Danish Open champion Chong Wei in Indonesia in June, came up triumphs 21-17, 11-21, 21-19 in an hour and three minutes on Thursday and will now face the winner of the match between world number one Son Wan Ho of Korea and local hope Anders Antonsen.

The 25-year-old Indian took a little more than an hour to send the No. 7 seed packing out of the competition and set up a potential quarterfinal clash against World No. 1 Son Wan Ho.



In the first game, Prannoy never gave Lee Chong Wei any leeway to dominate. Lee Chong couldn’t open up a lead of more than one point in the first game and ended up losing 21-17.

The former World No. 1 however walked away with the second game in a dominating fashion, winning five consecutive points to open a 14-8 lead and followed it up with a six-point run to pocket the second game comprehensively.
