The World No.15 was expected to make it past the group stages having been ranked with opponents with a lesser ranking, but World No. 47 Misha Zilberman of Israel pulled off a stunning upset, beating Praneeth 21-17, 21-15. The Indian shuttler was no match for Zilberman, which eventually sealed his fate. Only one of the three shuttlers could make it past the group stage and Mark Caljouw’s 2-1 win over Zilberman meant that the result on Wednesday will have no bearing on Praneeth’s future and he will be heading home.
If Praneeth beats Caljouw, the trio will have one win apiece, but the Indian shuttler will lose out on match difference. Praneeth lost had a 2 game disadvantage against Zilberman, who won one game in his loss to Caljouw. A 2-0 win against Mark will see him finish second at max, ending his Olympic dream. Nonetheless, Praneeth will look to bow out on a high and one can expect a spirited performance from the 28-year-old.
