Indian badminton ace Saina Nehwal produced a spirited performance as she bounced back from a game down against Japan's Haruko Suzuki to book her place in the semi-finals of the Thailand Open here on Friday.
Shreyansh lost 9-21, 18-21 to local shuttler Suppanyu Avihingsanon, while Malaysian Daren Liew ended Subhankar's campaign with a 10-21, 21-15, 21-19 win. On the other hand, Singapore Open champion Praneeth had an easy outing, thrashing lower-ranked Thailand's Kantaphon Wangcharoen in straight games 21-16, 21-17 in less than an hour to sail into the semi-finals.
In the opening game, after splitting the first four points, World No. 24 Praneeth carved out a three-point lead to go in front 6-3.

While Saina made some unforced errors in the first game at crucial moments, she tried to fight back in the second. He had managed to win seven consecutive points. The match was stretched to the decider but this time Saina gave the Japanese no chance and maintained her lead throughout to take clinch the tie 21-11. The third seeded Praneeth comfortably defeated Thongnuam 21-11, 21-15 in the semi-final match and set up the summit clash with Jonatan Christie of Indonesia.
Saina and Praneeth are the only two Indians left in the tournament. However, the London Olympic bronze medallist has not had a good season, barring her Malaysia Masters win earlier this year.
