HS Prannoy advances to pre-quarter-finals of Yonex Canada Open Badminton tournament

Indian shuttler HS Prannoy advanced to the pre-quarter-finals of the Yonex Canada Open Badminton tournament in Calgary. He defeated the 69th ranked Kieran Merrilees 21-17, 16-21, 21-15. He next faces the ninth seeded Jin Hyeok Jeon for a place in the quarter-finals.

However, 16th seeded Parupalli Kashyap lost to the teenaged Koki Watanabe of Japan that ended his campaign.

Meanwhile, Guatemala Futures winner Karan Rajan Rajarajan put up an impeccable display in his 21-16, 21-14 demolition of Sam Parsons of England.

Abhishek Yelegar too entered the third round with a tough 21-10, 19-21, 21-17 victory over American shuttler Howard Shu.

While Rajarajan next takes on Watanabe, Yelegar has the fifth seed Pablo Abian up next.

In women’s singles too, there were contrasting results for two of India’s most promising stars. South Asian Games champion Ruthvika Shivani Gadde stormed back from a first-game deficit to notch up a thrilling 6-21, 21-19, 21-13 victory over Korea’s Ga Eun Kim.

The Russian Open champion has an uphill task up next as she faces the second seed and World No. 18 Aya Ohori.

National champion Rituparna Das, however, had to bite the dust as she went down fighting 21-9, 18-21, 16-21 to Japan’s Haruko Suzuki.

There were three wins in the doubles section for India on Day 2 of the Canada Open. Tarun Kona and Meghana Jakkampudi caused a huge upset in mixed doubles by stunning the eighth seeds Nyl Yakura and Brittney Tam, 21-13, 22-20.

Second seeded pair of Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy easily dispatched the unheralded Peruvian duo of Daniel La Torre Regal and Danica Nishimura 21-10, 21-19.

In men’s doubles, the defending champions Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy made a bright start to their title defence by knocking out Kohei Gondo and Tatsuya Watanabe, 21-15, 21-19. -AIR
