I hope Saina and Sindhu meet in the SF and then the winner goes to Dubai.

Yes, another good day for us except Prannoy's loss. Bit disappointed that Prannoy is so inconsistent and just cannot get 2 consecutive wins at this level.

At YONEX SUNRISE Hong Kong Open, Super Series

[QF] Sameer Verma (IND,43) vs Wei Feng Chong (MAS,53)
[QF] Ajay Jayaram (IND,19) vs Ka Long Angus Ng (HKG,14)

[QF] (5) Saina Nehwal (IND,11) vs Ngan Yi Cheung (HKG,26)
[QF] Pusarla V. Sindhu (IND,9) vs Xiaoyu Liang (SIN,32)

Sindhu is in a spot of bother -- trailing 6-12 in the decider.

Update: I couldn't bear to follow the score anymore. Just checked and she won with two huge streaks -- one of 8 points and another of 6 points to close out the match.

PUSARLA V. Sindhu (IND) d Xiaoyu LIANG(SIN) 21-17 21-23 21-18 (Match Duration 1:19)

Now Saina has got to win to match Sindhu and then we have an awesome SF between the two. IIRC Sindhu has a hard time beating Saina.

Excellent comeback by Sindhu from 6-12 down in the third game. I expected her to win this more easily but in the end win is a win. Probably she is tiring a bit after the title run last week.

Looking forward to see Saina win today to set up a marquee clash against Sindhu with a winner taking the ticket to Dubai year ending championships.

No Saina vs. Sindhu SF as Saina lost in 3 games in QF. :-(

Sameer Verma reached his first super series SF. :D

At YONEX SUNRISE Hong Kong Open, Super Series

[QF] Sameer Verma (IND,43) d. Wei Feng Chong (MAS,53) 21-17 23-21
[QF] Ajay Jayaram (IND,19) l. Ka Long Angus Ng (HKG,14) 15-21 14-21

[QF] (5) Saina Nehwal (IND,11) l. Ngan Yi Cheung (HKG,26) 8-21 21-18 19-21
[QF] Pusarla V. Sindhu (IND,9) d. Xiaoyu Liang (SIN,32) 21-17 21-23 21-18

Next,

[SF] Sameer Verma (IND,43) vs. (3) Jan O Jorgensen (DEN,3)

[SF] Pusarla V. Sindhu (IND,9) vs. Ngan Yi Cheung (HKG,26)

Also with that win ( and Saina's loss) Sindhu qualifies for year ending championships at Dubai.

This is a nice article on Saina's match yesterday -

Superb upset win by Sameer Verma to reach the final. :clap: :clap:

[SF] Sameer Verma (IND,43) d. (3) Jan O Jorgensen (DEN,3) 21-19 24-22

Sameer becomes only the third Indian man to reach a super series final after K. Srikanth and Ajay Jayaram.
