Hello! Good morning and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Japan Open Super Series 2017 and as the tournament enters its quarterfinal stage, we have three Indian contenders left for the title.

The first match of the tournament sees HS Prannoy take on the second seed Shi Yuqi of China, in what promises to be a real top-quality encounter. The Chinese, who is ranked number four in the world, will be a tough not for the Indian to crack and it will be interesting to see how Prannoy will approach the game.

In the two rounds he has played so far, the shuttler from Kerala is yet to drop a game. In the first match, he defeated Dane prodigy Anders Antonsen in straight games 21-12 21-14 and in the Round of 16, he got past World No. 26 Hsu Jen Hao 21-16, 23-21 in exactly 60 minutes.

Yuqi, on the other hand, has had to play out two tough three-gamers in his previous rounds and in both matches, he came back to win from one game down. The first match saw him overcome French shuttler Brice Leverdez 19-21 21-6 21-16 and in the pre-quarters, he defeated Sameer Verma 10-21 21-17 21-15.

Prannoy and Yuqi have faced off thrice in the past and it's the Chinese man who has the edge in the head-to-head. The two met earlier this at the Swiss Open, where Yuqi clinched a comfortable 21-19 21-11 win.
