Written by: Staff

Hong Kong, Aug 31 (UNI) Parupalli Kashyap failed to repeat his giant-killing act and went down to world and Olympic champion Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia in a pre-quaterfinal match of the Yonex Hong Kong Open Badminton Championship here today.

Kashyap, who scored an upset win over world number 19 Przemyslaw Wacha of Poland yesterday, put up a spirited fight but failed to match the guiles of the much experienced Indonesian and lost 17-21, 17-21.

Kashyap's loss saw Indian challenge in the tournament coming to an end with all his compatriots failing to go past second round in the five star event.

Saina Nehwal, India's hopeful in the women's section, lost to world number one and defending champion Ning Zhang of China yesterday.
