US Open: Lakshya reaches semi-finals; Sindhu crashes out

Council Bluffs, US: India's top shuttler PV Lakshya Sen advanced to the last four of the US Open Super 300 badminton tournament whereas Sindhu was eliminated in the quarterfinals after losing a straight game.

In the women's singles match, China's 24-year-old Gao Fang Jie upset third-seeded Sindhu, who is ranked 12th in the world, 20-22, 13-21. In the men's singles final on Friday night, all-Indian Lakshya defeated S Sankar Muthusamy Subramanian 21-10, 21-17.

Lakshya will face second seed Li Shi Feng of China in the semifinals. The Indian enjoys a 5-3 win-loss ratio against Feng.

Olympic medallist Sindhu appeared to be fighting hard against her Chinese opponent, ranked 36th in the world, but the Indian’s inability to win long rallies proved to be crucial in the opening game.

Sindhu was completely overpowered in the second as Fang Jie upped her game and gave little room to the Indian to approach the net and play her drop shots.

Sindhu had defeated Korea’s Sung Shuo Yun to secure a place in the quarterfinals.

In an all-Indian affair, third seed Lakshya easily got the better of promising 19-year-old Sankar Muthusamy from Chennai.

Lakshya was extremely confident in his rallies and it showed in the final match statistics as he won 42 rallies while Sankar Muthusamy could manage only 27 in a contest that lasted 38 minutes.
