Birmingham: India's campaign at the All England Open Badminton Championships came to an end as Saina Nehwal suffered a defeat in the quarter-finals on Friday.

Eighth seed Saina fought hard, but could not avoid a 20-22, 20-22 defeat to South Korean third seed Sung Ji Hyun in 54 minutes.

It was a heartbreaking loss for Saina who came close but could not pull it off at critical junctures at the Barclaycard Arena.

The win was Sung's only second triumph in eight games against 2012 London Olympic bronze medal winner Saina.
