Japan Open: HS Prannoy proceeds to pre-quarters

Osaka: Indian shuttler HS Prannoy entered the pre-quarterfinals of the Japan Open men's singles badminton tournament here on Tuesday after his opponent Ng Ka Long Angus left the court hurt in the first round, PTI reported.

Prannoy was leading at 11-10 before Angus of Hong Kong got hurt seven minutes into the match. The world number 18 Indian will play on former world champion Loh Kean Yew of Singapore in the second round.

In the BWF World Championships in Tokyo last week, Prannoy stood in form, beating two-time world champion Kento Momota. He had also defeated compatriot and Commonwealth Games gold medallist Lakshya Sen.

But in the quarter-finals of the tournament, he lost to China's Zhao Junpeng.

In Japan Open, the women's doubles pair of Ashwini Bhat K and Shikha Gautam will take on the Korean combination of Baek Ha Na and Lee Yu Lim in their first-round clash, on Tuesday.
