India’s Ajay Jayaram moved into the final of the Dutch Open Grand Prix badminton for the third straight year with a convincing win over Anders Antonsen of Denmark. Meanwhile, the mixed doubles pair of Pranaav Cherry Chopra and Sikki Reddy bowed out in the semis.

Top-seed Jayaram won 21-18 13-21 21-13 in just under an hour to continue his dominant run for a third straight crown at the USD 55,000 event in Almere.

The Indian made a winning start, but fifth seed Antonsen came back strongly to win the second game convincingly. Jayaram, a three-time winner here, bounced back to clinch the decider.

Chopra and Sikki Reddy lost to Denmark's Soren Gravholt and Maiken Feuergaard 19-21, 16-21.
