Good evening and welcome to the Sportskeeda liveblog of the India Open second round match of Saina Nehwal. The sixth seed and former champion is looking to set up a blockbuster quarter-final clash with her compatriot and third seed PV Sindhu.

But before that, she has the talented teenager Pornpawee Chochuwong to deal with, who gave a tough fight to Saina in the Malaysia Masters final in January. Saina will hope not to repeat the same mistakes she did in that final that gave a chance to the young Thai to stretch the match.
