It turned out to be a good Friday for the Indian badminton contingent at the $350,000 OUE Singapore Open as B Sai Praneeth came from behind to edge the eighth seed and World No. 11 Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk of Thailand and enter the semi-finals.

Sai, who has climbed to his career-best rank of 30 this week, lost the first game but rebounded in stunning fashion to take the 15-21, 21-14, 21-19 win in 1 hour 11 minutes.
