Day 2 Recap


Former world number one Saina Nehwal was knocked out in the first round of the ongoing Denmark Open World Tour Super 750 tournament on Wednesday. Saina lost her opening match 15-21, 21-23 against Japan’s Sayaka Takahashi to crash out. Going through a tough phase in her career due to fitness-related issues, Saina didn’t look at her very best against the swift Japanese and lacked rhythm right from word go.

The 29-year-old Indian shuttler was struggling to match Takahashi’s pace and deception in both the games and most of the times was seen playing the catch-up. After losing the first game, Saina displayed her old form and class as she made a comeback of sorts in the second to stretch the encounter in Odense. But, a couple of unforced errors at crucial junctures cost the London Olympic bronze medallist a place in the second round.

Saina was earlier diagnosed with a gastroenteritis problem in March, made first-round exits in China and Korea and she will aim to get deep into the draw.

In the men’s singles event – Sameer Verma defeated Kanta Tsuneyama 21-11, 21-11 to advance to the pre-quarterfinals. Sameer will play former world number one Chen Long in the last 16 clash.
