BIRMINGHAM, March 8: Saina Nehwal�s dismal run against nemesis Tai Tzu-Ying continued as she suffered yet another defeat against the Taiwanese to crash out of the USD 1 million All England Championship, here on Friday.

A former finalist, Saina couldn�t find answers to the deceptive strokeplay of the World No. 1 Taiwanese, going down 15-21, 19-21 in the 37-minute quarterfinal clash.

�I had my chances but I got tied up in the last two points,� said the 28-year-old from Hyderabad.

�My coach was saying �make it slower�, but when you are on the edge of winning a game you tend to get a little more hurried up and I made that mistake again, it cost me the second set.

�I�m happy that I�m getting closer to the top players. I�ve not been sleeping because of the pain I�ve been having in my stomach (due to diarrhea), but I�m really happy that I could play two matches here.�

Saina is now 5-15 in Head-to-Head career record with Tzu-Ying and it was her 13th straight defeat against the Taiwanese, who has not lost to the Indian since 2015.

�It�s good that I�m playing her again and again. I have to learn how to beat her,� she said. � PTI
