Oh dear! The Spaniard is in tears. She leaves the court to talk to coach Fernando Rivas. It looks like she cannot continue.

Nehwal 2-7 Marin 

Oh, there's yet another scream from Marin. She has opened up a five-point lead over the Indian ace, who seems to be on the backfoot.

Nehwal 0-3 Marin 

Both players are trying to find the backcourt with push-clears. Nehwal hits the shuttle wide. Three straight points should boost Marin's confidence.

Nehwal vs Marin

Indian shuttle queen Saina Nehwal qualified to cross swords again with reigning world and Olympic champion Carolina Marin of Spain after the two players beat higher ranked Chinese opponents at the Istora Senayan on Saturday. Saina, seeded eighth, staged a magnificent rearguard action in narrowly outpointing He Bingjiao, seeded sixth, by an 18-21, 21-12, 21-18 scoreline, while the fifth-ranked Spaniard pipped third-seeded Chen Yufei at the tape by a 17-21, 21-11, 23-21 verdict, after the 20-year-old Chinese had saved six match-points.

Crazy numbers! 

Semi-final result: Ace Indian shuttler Saina Nehwal advanced to the women's singles final of the Indonesia Masters 2019 after a hard-fought win over China's He Bingjiao on Saturday.

Eighth-seeded Nehwal defeated her opponent 18-21, 21-12, 21-18 in a 58-minute affair. The Indian lost the first game but came from behind in the next two games.

Nehwal, who had reached the finals in the last edition, will now take on Spain's three-time World Champion and reigning Olympic champion Carolina Marin, who defeated China's Chen Yufei 17-21, 21-11, 23-21 in the second semi-final.

Nehwal had won gold at the Commonwealth Games last year, a bronze at the Asian Games and had reached the summit clash of Denmark open, Syed Modi International and Indonesia Masters in 2018.
