Saina is getting back to where she was before her operation ... Her steady progress has been shown in today's result ... She scored a huge comeback win over talented Thai girl Ratchanok Intanon after losing the first game ... Next, she is facing another Thai girl Nitchaon Jindapol.

Sindhu started with a comfortable win over top-20 Thai girl ... Next, she is facing American-Chinese girl Beiwen Zhang.

In-form Sai having a tough match against WR #1 Korean Wan Ho Son ... Prannoy and Srikanth also facing higher ranked opponents.

Ashwini and Sumeeth lost in MXD, I think our think-tank should start building on Ashwini and young Satwiksairaj success in Sudirman cup ... In my view, we have found a rare doubles talent in Satwiksairaj and need to develop ... He with Chirag qualified for the main draw and next they r facing local pair.

Excellent win by Saina against former wold champion Ratchanok Intanon. I was just getting worried about her future after last week and then she pulls out this big win. She is 7-0 against her next opponent Jindapol while Sindhu is 3-0 against her next opponent Beiwen Zhang. Hopefully, both will continue their domination.

2 massive upsets- Srikanth beats Jorgensen and Prannoy beats the great Lee Chong Wei. Good chance for Srikanth to reach the final though Prannoy faces Chen Long next. Good to see Prannoy back. I regarded him as the next biggest men's hope after Srikanth but in recent times, Sai Praneeth and Sameer Verma seemed to have moved ahead.

Yes, 2 superb wins by Srikanth and Prannoy followed by a disappointing loss for Saina.

[R2] H.S. Prannoy (IND,29) d. (1) LEE Chong Wei (MAS,3) 21-10 21-18
[R2] Kidambi Srikanth (IND,14) d. (4) Jan O JORGENSEN (DEN,9) 21-15 20-22 21-16

[R2] (2) Saina Nehwal (IND,11) l. Nitchaon Jindapol (THA,15) 15-21 21-6 16-21

Yes, I too have considered Prannoy as potential top 10 player at least but so far he has been very inconsistent - brilliant at times and mediocre at others. Hopefully, with this big win he will get everything together to mount a change towards top 10.

Sindhu also lost. So mixed day for us ... As after two great upset wins by our men, we had two disappointing losses of our women players.
More disappointing was, before these matches, Saina and Sindhu had a winning record against their respective opponents.

[R2] (4) Pusarla V. Sindhu (IND,3) l Beiwen Zhang (USA,10) 21-15 12-21 18-21

[QF] H.S. Prannoy (IND,29) vs (8) Long Chen (CHN,8)
[QF] Kidambi Srikanth (IND,22) vs Tzu Wei Wang (TPE,19)

Great wins by the men! Hope they go further here.

BTW, Prannoy is currently #25 and both he and Srikanth should be close to the top 20 after these results.

Srikanth was ranked 14 coming into this week when his previous points dropped off.

Wow!!! Both Indians in semis. Prannoy beats Chen Long. Beating 2 of the GOATs of badminton in 2 days in some achievement. Hope one of them wins this tournament.

Yes, terrific result from Prannoy with another upset win over former WR #1 Long Chen in 75 mins ... After longtime I am seeing back to back quality wins by Indian shuttler.

Srikanth also joined him in the semis with comfortable straight games win over Taipei's Tzu Wei Wang ... Next he is facing Korean WR#1 Wan Ho Son.

[SF] Kidambi Srikanth (IND,22) vs (2) Wan Ho Son (KOR,1)

Wow, what an amazing performance by Pranny beating reigning Olympic and world champions back to back. :clap: He seems to have really come off age this week . Next up against Japanese.

[SF] H.S. Prannoy (IND,25) vs. Kazumasa SAKAI (JPN,47)

Hope we get an all Indian final.

Wonderful run of performances by the Indian men. Prannoy's successive victories over Lee Chong-wei and Chen Long were simply outstanding. I hope he can sustain that form in the SF, and Srikanth too wins so that we can have an all-Indian final.

Awesome wins by the Indians! Looks like the Sai Praneeth runs in the last month has given new confidence to the Indians.
