India's ace shuttler Saina Nehwal made it to her eight consecutive quarter-final in the World Championships at Nanjing, China. She went past Thailand's Ratchanok Intanon 21-16, 21-19. After the win she credited her coach Pullela Gopichand for helping her get out of a tricky situation in the second game of the match. She next faces Spain's Carolina Marin in the quarters. The duo had last faced each other in Denmark Open in 2017, that Nehwal had won.
