    The huge upset surged XD semifinal yesterday, Reddy/Ponnppa stunned strong favourite and Olympic bronze medalists Fischer/Pedersen in really tight contest, earlier at court 2 another home pair Chopra/Reddy secured final spot who eliminated DEN representative Christiansen/Thygesen in two straight-games.

    Ashwini Ponnapa also will feature in WD final, paired up with N.Sikki Reddy and take on Danish combination, Rio silver medalists Juhl/Pedersen. The top-seed were troubled by Malaysian inexperienced duo Lim YL/Yap ZW in first game and early stage of second set but after the interval break Juhl/Pedersen changed tactic and grabbed 10 consecutive point to seal the tie comfortably.

    Men's doubles top-contender showed their vast experienced to thwart Indonesia youngsters Alfian/Ardianto final berth, dropped 11-21 at the opening game, Boe/Mogensen battled hard to wrap up next two sets, 21-17 / 21-19. Dane veterans will bes tested by the unheralded TPE pair, Lu Ching Yao/Yang Po Han who demonstrated fast attacking style against INA newest combo, last week MAS Masters winner Angriawan/Hardianto.

    In singles category, local hopefuls will be favoured to clinch the title. MS final showdown will pit Sai Praneeth B. and Sameer Verma, a close contest is prospected. Praneeth eliminated defending champion Srikanth Kidambi in rubber games while Verma outclassed promising talent Harsheel Dani in last four. Praneeth won Canada GP title in 2016 season but the most sensational winning was created in All England when he dumped Lee Chong Wei at first round. 22 years old Verma produced impressive run late last year to storm into Bitburger Open semifinal and HKG Superseries final.

    India new idol Pusarla Venkatta Sindhu looks unstoppable to nail IIND GP Gold crown in front of her home fans. She passed Fitriani, 21-11 / 21-19, the Indonesian delivered stiff resistance in second game but not enough to force extra game. Sindhu will be challenged by another Indonesian promising star, Gregoria Mariska, the Rio silver medalist defeated Mariska three games in INA masters last September. Indonesia has been struggling to find real talent to compete in elite level, they often lost in early round of Superseries tournaments.
