Singapore Open: India's Treesa-Gopichand Move Into Semi-Final

The Indian women’s pair of Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand made it into the semi-final after beating Kim So Yeong and Kong Hee Yong of South Korea on Friday.

In their quarterfinal encounter, Jolly and Gopichand defeated their opponents 21-16, 19-21, and 22-24. One hour and nineteen minutes passed during the game.

The Indian duo dropped the opening set 21–18 after a careless start. In spite of this, Jolly and Gopichand overcame the Olympic bronze medallists with remarkable grace and poise in the game. The scores in the second and third sets were 19-21 and 22-24 for Jolly-Gopichand.

After defeating the defending All England champions Baek Ha Na and Lee So Hee in a match that lasted 59 minutes, Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand advanced to the semifinals of the competition.

Meanwhile, on Thursday at the Singapore Open 2024, superstar Indian shuttler PV Sindhu lost in the second round.

Sindhu lost to Carolina Marin 21-13, 11-21, 20-22 following a nail-biting one hour and eight minute three-game match.

This was Marin’s sixth consecutive loss to Sindhu. The Indian badminton player defeated her Spanish opponent in the Malaysia Open 2018 quarterfinals, which was her most recent triumph. Marin won the match between the two shuttlers in the Rio 2016 Olympic final.
On Thursday, Sindhu, who is now rated 12th in the international badminton rankings, got the match underway with great success. She asserted her dominance early on and won the opening game comfortably.

However, world No. 3 Marin regained focus after winning the second set and forced a decider.

Even though Sindhu had the advantage of 18-15 at one point in the third game, Marin was able to rally herself back into the nail-biter to wrap up the win. As a result, Marin currently has a 12-6 head-to-head record advantage over Sindhu.

In the second round of the Singapore Open, HS Prannoy, the top men’s singles player in India, was also ousted. Tenth-ranked Prannoy fell to Japan’s Kenta Nishimoto, who is rated eleventh in the world, 21-13, 14-21, 21-15 in 78 minutes.
