HS Prannoy made it to the quarter-finals of the ongoing Indonesia Open 2022 after comprehensively defeating NG Ka Long Angus of Hong Kong 21-11, 21-18. This was his 4th win against Angus in 8 meetings. Prannoy started off well and won the first set with ease before facing some resistance in the 2nd set which also he closed out convincingly.

Indian pair of Dhruv Kapila and M. Arjun gave to good fight to Chen and Xuan of China but the Chinese pair came on top with scorelines of 21-19 and 21-15.

Indian shuttler Sameer Verma ended his campaign at the Indonesia Open Super 1000 tournament with a straight-game loss to world number five Lee Zii Jia of Malaysia in the second round here on Thursday.

The 27-year-old, a former world no. 11, went down 10-21 13-21 to sixth-seeded Lee in a 43-minute men's singles match. This was Sameer's fifth loss to Lee in seven meetings.

Ashwini Ponnappa and N Sikki Reddy also bowed out of the tournament after losing 16-21 13-21 to top seeds Chen Qing Chen and Jia Yi Fan of China in the women's doubles competition.

All the losses today leave HS Prannoy as the sole representative who will take on World Number 13 Rasmus Gemke for a place in the semi-finals.
