World No 29 Jayaram went down to Hong Kong’s Yun Hu 16-21, 18-21 in the men’s singles semi-finals. Sindhu, ranked 24th, showed her prowess before losing a one hour six minute thriller against the World No 9.

The 17-year-old staged a remarkable recovery after being hammered in the opening game. It was a neck-and-neck fight in the decider.
