Kashyap in singles quarterfinals

New Delhi: India's P. Kashyap pulled off a major upset, defeating third-seed Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand 21-9, 21-19 to storm into the men's singles quarterfinals of the Denmark Open Super Series badminton championship at Odense on Friday.

Commonwealth Games bronze medallist, Kashyap came out with a clinical display against the higher placed Thai opponent to win the game in just 31 minutes. Unseeded Kashyap opened the match on a confident note and accumulated a 6-1 lead in the first game.

He consolidated his position further with the help of some long rallies and drop winners. In the second game, Kashyap raced ahead 7-2 before his opponent made a comeback bid and took a 10-9 lead.

At one stage, the issue was locked at 13-all but the Indian displayed his soft touch skill and grabbed four points in a row to clinch the issue.

Kashyap next faces world number 26 Pengyu Du, the only Chinese in the draw, in the quarterfinals. — PTI
