Badminton News: Subhankar Dey enters final, to face Rajiv Ouseph

Unseeded Subhankar Dey saved two match points against China’s Ren Pengbo before managing to continue his unbeaten run to reach the men’s singles final in the SaarLorLux Open Super 100 badminton tournament in Germany. The world number 64 Indian, who upset former world and Olympic champion Lin Dan in the earlier rounds got the better of Ren 21-18, 11-21, 24-22 in a nerve wrecking contest that lasted an hour and eight minutes. He will now take on fifth seed Rajiv Oseph of England, who got the better of France’s Toma Junior Popov 21-8, 19-21, 21-19 in another marathon encounter. He had shocked multiple time World and Olympic champion Lin Dan 22-20, 21-19 to enter the quarterfinals which has certainly been the high point of his career.
