Denmark Open 2018-Saina Loses To Tai Tzu Ying In Final

Saina Nehwal continued her winless run against Chinese Taipei's Tai Tzu Ying as she lost 13-21, 21-13 and 6-21 in the Denmark Open final on Sunday. The match, which went into the decider, saw Nehwal being dominated by old rival Tai Tzu, whom she had last defeated in 2013. Since then, Tai Tzu has been victorious in the last 10 matches between the 2. This year, world number 10 Saina Nehwal has lost all her four matches against Tai Tzu, the last being the semi-final clash in the Asian Games in Jakarta in August.

The Indian had come out second best four times earlier this year Indonesia Masters, All England Championships, Badminton Asia Championships and in the Jakarta Asian Games.

The top seed Taipei player meant business from the start as she dictated the pace in the first game to race to a 6-1 lead.

Nehwal looked indecisive but debatable poor line calls also cost her dearly. Tzu Ying on the other hand, was at her clinical best as she engaged Saina in long rallies to tire her out.
