Olympic bronze medallist Saina Nehwal exited the USD 400,000 All England Open Badminton Championships when she lost her women's singles quarter-final match against China's Shixian Wang at the National Indoor Arena here.
The Indian seventh seed lost to World No.3 Shixian 17-21, 10-21 in 43 minutes of the Super Series Premier Friday. With this win, the Chinese bettered her head-to-head with Saina to 3-4.
Fourth seed Shixian will next play compatriot and former world champion Yihan Wang in the semi-finals.
