HS Prannoy beats Parupalli Kashyap: 21-15, 22-20, 21-12!

A very calm and composed show by Prannoy there to seal his third Grand Prix Gold and maiden US Open title against an intelligent player like Kashyap. The 25-year-old scripted a brilliant comeback in the first game and despite losing the second narrowly, he managed to wrap up things quickly in the decider. Court coverage and a variation of strokes made the difference at the end.

19-10! Prannoy shows why he is one of the smart shuttlers out there. His judgement has been pretty accurate, especially after a disappointing start of the first game. He is just two points away from his maiden US Open title!

Second seeded Prannoy on Friday got the better of Vietnamese 15th seed Tien Minh Nguyen 21-14, 21-19 in 40 minutes in the second semi-final.

In the other semi-final, World No 59 Kashyap overcame South Korea's Kwang Hee Heo 15-21, 21-15, 21-16 in an hour and six minutes.

In the international circuit, Kashyap and World No 23 Prannoy have only met twice, with each winning a game.

The first game between them took place in 2010 Indian Grand Prix where Kashyap won. In the next one, at German Open 2014, Prannoy triumphed.

Their compatriots Manu-Sumeeth wasted their opportunity to join them in Sunday's play. The third seeded Indian men's doubles pair went down fighting against Chinese Taipei's top-seeded combine of Lu Ching Yao and Yang Po Han. The Chinese Taipei pair won the battle 21-12, 12-21, 22-20 in 54 minutes.

Lu-Yang will meet South Koreans Seung Jae Seo and Kim Ha Na in the final on Sunday. Seung-Kim eased past Japanese Kohei Gondo and Wakana Nagahara 21-13, 21-13 in 32 minutes.

The women's singles title will be decided between Canadian sixth seed Michelle Li and Japanese third seed Aya Ohori.
