The Indian shuttlers are currently competing at the ongoing 34th Thailand Open, which is set to run from May 17-22.
The Indian shuttlers saw mixed results on the second day of the tournament. Top Indian shuttlers PV Sindhu, Kidambi Srikanth and Malvika Bansod continued their terrific run to advance to the next round. Meanwhile, former World No. 1 Saina Nehwal and Sai Praneeth suffered defeats.
Ace shuttler Kidambi Srikanth pulled off a tough three-game win 18-21, 21-10, 21-16 over Brice Leverdez of France in the second round of the men's singles event in a match that lasted 49 minutes.
Two-time Olympic medalist PV Sindhu defeated Lauren Lam of the USA in a nail-biting match as the scoreboard read 21-19, 19-21, 21-18.
Saina Nehwal, on the other hand, lost to Kim Ga Eun of South Korea. After winning the first game 21-11, the 32-year-old then lost her momentum and went on to lose the next two games 15-21, 17-21, eventually giving the match away.
HS Prannoy suffered defeat at the hands of Liew Daren of Malaysia. After his heroics at the recently concluded Thomas Cup 2022, the 29-year-old lost a hard-fought battle to the Malaysian shuttler 17-21, 21-15, 15-21.
