Carolina Marin has finished the challenge from Indian ace player Saina Nehwal in the quarter finals within 31 minutes at the BWF Badminton World Championships 2018. Carolina Marin dominated throughout the game to thrash Saina Nehwal in straight sets ( 21-6, 21-11) and booked a spot in women’s singles semi-final.

The superior seeded Spaniard looked in fine form as she gave no chance to the 10th seeded Indian. In the opening game, Marin accumulated quick points to quickly race to the mid-game interval with a massive 11-2. Saina, on the other hand, looked out of touch and failed to get better of her counterpart. The Indian also made repeated unforced errors in the process which helped Marin, close the game at 21-6 in 12 minutes without breaking much sweat.

In the second game, Saina opened the scoring but fell behind Marin, who mixed her shots well to keep the Indian -- who looked out of touch, under continuous pressure.
