    Saina crashes out of All England Championships

    New Delhi: India's badminton ace Saina Nehwal crashed out of the 2011 All England Championships on Friday, going down in straight games to Japan's Eriko Hirose 11-21, 20-22 in the quarter finals.

    Going into her match against Hirose, Saina had a 2-1 win-loss record against her Japanese opponent, however she was unable to come up with the answers on this occasion.

    After losing the first game, Saina put up a much better show in the second but failed to take the contest into a decider.

    Earlier, Saina defeated Tzu Ying Tai in her second round match 21-17 21-17 to enter the last eight.
