Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal is virtually out of the semi-final race of the BWF World Super Series Finals after losing her second consecutive women’s singles Group B match in the USD 500,000 event here on Thursday.

The world number 3 Indian surrendered 13-21 16-21 to Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand, a day after Denmark’s Tine Baun stunned Saina 14-21 21-11 19-21 in her tournament opener.

Saina failed to put up a fight against world number 9 Ratchanok, who hardly broke a sweat to pocket the match in just 34 minutes at the China Resources Shenzhen Bay Sports Centre. Seeded fourth, Saina looked a pale shadow of herself right from the start of the opening game.PTI
