Kidambi Srikanth, B Sai Praneeth in semifinal action

With their stellar performance the two Indian shuttlers Kidambi Srikanth and B Sai Praneeth outclassed their respective opponents in men's singles semi-finals, and will now clash with each other in the finals of the Singapore Open.

World No.29 Srikanth registered a thumping 21-13, 21-14 win over No.26 Anthony Sinisuka Ginting of Indonesia in 42 minutes at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Earlier, Praneeth, who had been laid low by a shoulder injury, continued his rampaging return to the court by thrashing three-time Korea Masters Grand Prix Gold victor Lee 21-6, 21-8 in a lop-sided semifinal match.

Srikanth, the world No 29, became the first Indian to claim a Superseries title since the graded events became part of the world badminton calendar when he stunned Chinese great, Lin Dan in straight games in the final on his home turf.

Lee also struggled in the second game against the world No. 30 and trailed 4-11 at the changeover.

In the second game, Praneeth continued to dominate the proceedings and zoomed to a 9-1 lead. The Indian had lost in straight games the last time he played Lee two years ago.

During the semi-final, Srikanth showed his experience against Ginting. Ginting then miscued a net dribble to give Srikanth the game point and then hit long as the Indian pocketed the opening game. He managed to narrow the margin to 14-17.

Olympic 2016 runner-up Sindhu suffered a taming 11-21, 15-21 defeat at the hands of her Rio conqueror Carolina Marin of Spain.
