Srikanth Advances to Semifinals, Sole Indian Hope at Swiss Open

In a thrilling showdown at the Swiss Open Super 300 badminton tournament, Kidambi Srikanth emerged as the lone Indian survivor, securing a spot in the semifinals. Srikanth showcased his prowess with a commanding straight-game victory over Chinese Taipei’s Chia Hao Lee, marking his first semifinal appearance in 16 months. Meanwhile, Kiran George’s valiant effort came to an end with a narrow defeat to Denmark’s Rasmus Gemke, and Priyanshu Rajawat faced a tough challenge against Chou Tien Chen.

Additionally, the Indian women’s doubles pair of Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand suffered a disappointing exit after a straight-game loss to Australia’s Setyana Mapasa and Angela Yu. Srikanth’s upcoming clash with Chinese Taipei’s Lin Chun-Yi promises another exciting showdown at the St Jakobshalle Stadium.
