The Indian shuttler went down in the first game but overcame a four-point deficit in the second to keep his quarterfinal chances alive. Trailing 11-6 at the break in the third game, Prannoy chipped away eight of the next 11 points to level the score at 14-all. 

The Indian shuttler kicked off from there on to storm into his fourth successive quarterfinals.On the other hand, London 2012 bronze medallist Saina Nehwal upset world No. 9 He Bing Jiao of China 21-19, 11-21, 21-17 in 58 minutes to make her first quarter-final of the year. 

The last time Saina progressed beyond the round of 16 was at the Orleans Masters back in March 2021.However, Mithun Manjunath, who beat world championships silver medallist Kidambi Srikanth on Wednesday, went down to Ireland's world No. 42 Nhat Nguyen 10-21, 21-18, 16-21.
