Barcelona Masters badminton: Ajay Jayram crashes out in semifinal


Barcelona: Indian shuttler Ajay Jayaram Saturday crashed out of the men’s singles semifinals of the Barcelona Spain Masters after suffering a straight-game loss to Thailand’s Kunlavut Vitidsarn here.

The unseeded Indian gave a tough fight in the opening game before surrendering 20-22 12-21 in the last-four clash of the BWF World Tour Super 300 event.

With Jayaram’s defeat, India’s campaign in the tournament came to an end.

Olympic medallist Saina Nehwal, seeded fifth, Friday lost to third seed Busanan Ongbamrungphan in the women’s singles quarterfinals.
