Odense: While H S Prannoy’s second successive win over three-time Olympic medallist Lee Chong Wei was the highlight on a day, Saina Nehwal and and Kidambi Srikanth also made the quarterfinals of Open Super Series Premier here.

Just four months back, Prannoy had created a flutter when he dispatched Chong Wei in straight games in the Indonesia Super Series Premier and the unseeded Indian dished out another superb performance yesterday to oust the former World No. 1 Malaysian 21-17 11-21 21-19 in a match that lasted an hour and three minutes here.

 “I am happy to beat him again today. Even at this age, he is one of the best players, who can play in any conditions. I am not thinking much ahead as I have done this before but couldn’t win the title so I will just look at the next match,” Prannoy told reporters after the match.

World No. 8 Srikanth, who already has two super series titles at Indonesia and Australia to his name, defeated Korea’s Jeon Hyeok Jin 21-13 8-21 21-18, while Saina, who won a bronze at the Glasgow World Championship, prevailed over Thailand’s Nitchaon Jindapol 22-20 21-13 in women’s singles pre-quarterfinals.

US Open champion Prannoy will next face Korea’s top seed Son Wan Ho, Srikanth will meet current world champion Viktor Axelsen, while Saina will square off against Japan’s Akane Yamaguchi.
