<p>Even though Kiran George gave it her all, she lost to the world number nine in a tough struggle that lasted forty-three minutes, 14-21, 6-21.</p>
<p>The Indian campaign in the BWF World Tour Super 500 event came to an end with the quarterfinal loss.</p>
<p>Lakshya Sen, ranked 19 in the world, and Priyanshu Rajawat, ranked 30, had already lost their pre-quarterfinal matches and were eliminated from the tournament. In addition, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty, the best men’s doubles team in India, pulled out of the competition after making it to the finals in their previous two matches.</p>
<p>After shocking everyone by taking out Chinese star Lu Guang Zu in the pre-quarterfinals, Kiran George was unable to maintain his advantage against Kunlavut Vitidsarn. Even though the Thai shuttler made a comeback to close the deficit at the mid-game break, he shown his skill and won the first game, which he continued into the second.</p>
<p>In the second game, Vitidsarn demonstrated his supremacy by scoring 11 points in a row on both sides of the half to take a dominating 18–5 advantage. Vitidsarn’s decisive performance guaranteed him a spot in the semi-finals, where he will face Denmark’s Anders Antonsen.</p>
<p>The victory was especially meaningful to Kunlavut Vitidsarn since it was his first against Kiran at the senior level. The two had previously faced off in the 2017 Malaysia International Series.</p>
