Singapore Open: Saina Nehwal Goes Down To Nozomi Okuhara In Quarters


India’s Saina Nehwal failed to get past the quarterfinals stage at the Singapore Open after being outgunned by World No.3 Nozomi Okuhara of Japan on Friday. Saina Nehwal lost in straight games 8-21, 13-21 to bow out of the tournament. The match lasted just 36 minutes as the Japanese shuttler found top form against her Indian opponent. Saina Nehwal had no answers to Nozomi Okuhara’s brilliant attacking play, tasting her first defeat against the Japanese in their last 4 meetings.

On Thursday, Saina Nehwal defeated Thailand’s Pornpawee Chochuwong 21-16, 18-21, 21-19 in the second round to reach quarterfinals. Last week, Chochuwong had defeated Saina 20-22, 21-15, 21-10 in the first round of Malaysia Open.
