HS Prannoy Stuns Tommy Sugiarto In New Zealand Open, Sai Praneeth Knocked Out


For Prannoy, this was his maiden meeting against world no. 13 Sugiarto.

Once Prannoy seized the initiative and took a 7-3 lead, there was no looking back as he extended it to 11-4.

The Indian did well to close out the game at 21-14, and in the second game too braved a Sugiarto onslaught where he took the initial lead at 4-2, but Prannoy came back strongly to not only level the scores but nose ahead with four consecutive winners to take a 8-4 lead.

After taking the lead, Prannoy showed composure to seal the contest in his favour.

Meanwhile, Indian men’s doubles pair of Manu Attri and Sumeeth B Reddy finished second best against seventh seeds Goh V Shem and Tan Wee Kiong of Malaysia 17-21, 19-21 in the second round.

On Wednesday, young Chinese shuttler Wang Zhiyi caused a major upset as the 19-year-old outclassed World no. 9 Saina Nehwal in a first round match.
