Indian badminton queen Saina Nehwal failed to rise and shine in her home events and bid adieu to Yonex Sunrise India Open after losing to Yui Hashimoto on Thursday, April 25, 2013.
This pre quarter-final tussle as staged at the local badminton arena of New Delhi and both contenders remained head-to-head for 62 minutes.
The game kept swinging between them from very first set to the last one as both shuttlers challenged each other while piling up final figures of 21-13, 12-21 and 20-22.
Yui Hashimoto, who was underrated earlier in this event, amazed every one by storming back in second set and then served the notice of her potential in the final game.
On the other hand, the hot favourite Saina looked bit off colour as she struggled against a lower ranked shuttler and finally crashed out of this prestigious tournament.
