Saina Nehwal entered Macau Open badminton quarters


Badminton Player Saina Nehwal entered the quarter final stage of Macau Open Grand Prix Gold badminton tournament on Thursday. On the other hand, in men’s single third round Parupalli Kashyap bowed out of the tournament.

Saina Nehwal will undergo knee surgery in August.

It was a decent begin from Saina Nehwal, who drove the principal diversion at the midway check, however the world No 50 arranged a stupendous rebound as she led the pack at 19-15, having trailed 7-10 to Saina prior. Two focuses went whichever way and Dinar won the principal amusement easily. 

In the second, Saina surged to a comparable 10-3 lead just to locate the decided Dinar level it back at 18-18. In any case, the rebound was fleeting as Saina went ahead to take the following three focuses and drew the match level at 1-1. 

The way in which Saina constrained the rebound appeared to have shocked the Indonesian as she went down 12-21, for all intents and purposes without a battle, giving Saina Nehwal yet another hard-battled triumph. 

Saina, who is yet to achieve the last four of a competition having slammed out of China Open in the first round and in the quarterfinal phase of the Hong Kong Open, was pushed as far as possible by Dinar however the previous world No 1 hung on and returned from a diversion down to wrap up the match that endured 62 minutes. 

She will next face China's Zhang Yiman for a place in the last four. Saina is India's most logical option in the competition after Rio Olympics silver medallist PV Sindhu pulled back from the competition.
