Ratchanok in Hong-Kong semi-final

Day of hits and near misses

In the quarter finals, Sindhu may come face-to-face with China Open victor Akane Yamaguchi. After a close first game, Sindhu was a runaway victor in the second toying with her opponent while hitting deceptive lobs and steep smashes.

At one point, Sindhu was trailing 12-7, 18-16. In 2016 Summer Olympics, she won the silver medal in the women's singles event.

Thailand's Ratchanok Intanon defeated Michelle Li of Canada on Friday to move on to the semi-finals of the US$400,000 BWF Hong Kong Open badminton tournament.

Sun shines on Shropshire shoppers as Black Friday busy
The $1.52 billion in online spend by Thanksgiving evening represents 16.8 percent growth from past year , according to the data. Big sales are expected on Black Friday , but it may not compare to what's to come on Cyber Monday .

In contrast to Sindhu, former champion Saina Nehwal laboured to her first round win.

Sindhu's wins came in India Open 2013 and Korea Open 2015. It is a fine win considering the Japanese was seeded number five.

Tenth-ranked Nehwal, however, ran out of steam to lose to China's Chen Yufei and eighth seed 21-18, 19-21, 10-21 in a second-round match lasting an hour. She may also have to enter into competition with Japan's Sayaka Sato in the quarter-finals.

Sindhu produced a consummate performance to progress into the quarter-finals with a 21-14, 21-17 win over Aya Ohori on Thursday. Despite being ranked over the Japanese player, Prannoy has never been able to beat his opponent in the three times that they have played.

In the men's singles, World No 10 Prannoy suffered an upset, losing to 23rd ranked Kazumasa Sakai 11-21, 21-10, 21-15 in 54 minutes.
