Thailand Open : Saina Nehwal & Sai Praneeth storms into Quarter-finals

Thailand Open : Saina Nehwal & Sai Praneeth storms into Quarter-finals

Indian ace shuttler Saina Nehwal & Sai Praneeth storms into quarters of the Thailand Open Grand Prix after winning their respective matches of pre-quarters.

Olympic medallist & 2nd seeded Saina breezed past unseeded Ying Ying Lee of Malaysia in straight sets 21-11, 21-14. Saina had no such problems against Ying & she wrapped up the match in quick time to book her seat into quarterfinals.

The world No.11 will face Haruko Suzuki for a place in semis on Friday.

The Japanese qualifier may not pose much problem for Saina and the Indian ace is likely to face a tough opponent only in the semifinals.

While Singapore Open Champion Third seed Praneeth ousted ninth seed Iskandar Zulkarnain of Malaysia 21-13, 21-18. Praneeth also had an easy outing & will now face Thailand’s Kantaphon Wang, is expected to reach the semifinal without much difficulty.

However, it was end of the road for 12th seed Sourabh Verma Sai Uttejitha and the Indo-Malaysian mixed doubles combination of Prajakta Sawant and Yogendran Khrishnan.

Sourabh lost to Brice Leverdez of France 16-21, 25-23, 11-21, Uttejitha went down to local girl Pattarasuda Chaiwan 15-21, 17-21 and Prajakta and her partner were trounced by top seeds Dechapol Puavaranukroh and Sapsiree Taerattanachai 10-21, 9-21.

Indian hopes in Thailand Open now will be on the shoulders of Sai Praneeth & Saina Nehwal.
