17-7! LCW is on a roll
It's surprising to see that a tall shuttler like Axelsen is finding it difficult to lift the bird from the frontcourt.
11-5! Lee Chong Wei is running away with the lead against Axelsen
9-5! Axelsen is certainly not comfortable playing from the back of the court. Meanwhile, LCW is running away with the lead here

Next up, it's the men's singles match between Viktor Axelsen and Lee Chong Wei. The first game is underway...
And the Olympic silver medallist beats the Olympic gold medallist in straight games and what a way to finish things off! A flat smash down the baseline. Unplayable! Marin couldn't find her feet after falling awkwardly on her back. Meanwhile, Sindhu made sure that she kept on attacking Marin's backhand side.
Incredible reflexes and quick thinking from Sindhu to win that point!
17-15! It feels like a trend now. Whenever Sindhu opens up a two-point lead, Marin closes the gap on her opponent's lead.
Not this time though. Sindhu wins the next two points to make it 19-15
8 of the last 10 points have been won by Marin. Sindhu seems to have lost her focus after the mid-game break

Five straight points for Sindhu!

Defending champion Tai Tzu Ying beats Goh Jin Wei 21-15, 21-15 to enter the semi-finals of the women's singles department. The Taiwanese was trailing 6-11 in the opening game. Tai can take the match on her own. She proved it once again.
Kidambi Srikanth enters semi-finals
The Indian shuttler beats Brice Leverdez 21-18, 21-14 in just 39 minutes to enter the last four of the men's singles department. After an end-to-end opening game, Srikanth tweaked his tactics to stretch his opponent at the baseline.

Just three points away!
Srikanth is just three points away from registering an easy win over Leverdez #MalaysiaOpen2018
16-11! Srikanth maintains his five-point lead over Leverdez, who looks a bit jaded after the mid-game break. This was an easy tie for the Indian shuttler, at least on paper. It'll be interesting if Leverdez can push for a decider here.
Srikanth wins six points on the trot to take a six-point lead over Leverdez. Some classy forehand strokes from the Indian shuttler #MalaysiaOpen2018

India's Kidambi Srikanth is in action against Brice Leverdez in the quarter-finals. Srikanth is making a comeback after a lengthy gap, while Leverdez is struggling with fitness issues. It'll be interesting to see if the Frenchman could cause a major upset.
