Saina Nehwal crashes out of Indonesia Open

Jakarta [Indonesia], June 15 : In what may come as a major blow to the Indian fans, ace shuttler Saina Nehwal crashed out of the Indonesia Super Series Premier after going down against Thailand's Nitchaon Jindapol here on Thursday.

After suffering a defeat in the first game, Nehwal rebounded strongly in the second before again going down to end up with a 15-21, 21-6, 21-16 defeat against her Thailand opponent in a thrilling clash that lasted 63 minutes.

Earlier this month, the 27-year-old Hyderabadi had made it to the semi-finals of the Thailand Open before losing to Thailand's Busanan Ongbamrungphan 17-13, 13-9.
