HS Prannoy will be taking on China’s Shi Yuqi in the quarterfinals of the Indonesia Open after efeat Wang Tzu Wei in a three-setter last round. He remains India’s sole contender from men’s category after Sameer Verma went down in straight set defeat against Viktor Axelsen.

After beating the legendary Lin Dan in the first round itself, Prannoy was dealt with a tough task against Chinese Taiper’s Wang Tzu Wei in the second round. The Taiwanese ace shocked Prannoy by taking the first set in a lengthy 23-21 battle before Prannoy started his comeback. He won the next two rounds 21-15, 21-13 easily though, but his next opponent will now know the chinks in Prannoy’s armour.

China’s Yuqi, however, enjoys a 3-1 lead over Prannoy in the head-to-head. The last time they met was in the Japan Open and prior to that, in the Swiss Open, which saw the Chinese Open winning both the matches in straight sets. In fact, Prannoy’s only win over Yuqi last came in 2016 in the Asia Team Championships.

Unlike Prannoy, Yuqi had an easier match against Japan’s Kazumasa Sakai whom he beat 21-14, 21-17 in the last round.
