Swiss Open Final, Sai Praneeth vs Shi Yuqi Highlights: A day after Indian shuttler B Sai Praneeth toppled world number five and reigning Olympic champion Chen Long in the Swiss Open semifinal in Basel, the World number 22 went down against top seed Chinese Shi Yuqi on Sunday. Praneeth went down 21-19, 18-21, 12-21 to Shi Yuqi to finish as runners-up.

After winning the first game, Praneeth kept the pressure on the top seed before losing the second game by two points. However, the decider was somewhat a one-sided match as the tired Indian shuttler lost points in a streak, failing to win his first title this year.
