Can Saina, Kashyap create history?
The ace shuttler, hailed as a top medal contender for India, has stormed into the quarterfinals, dismantling her opponents with ease. Her next hurdle though will be the experienced Baun, the two-time All England champion. Given Saina's current form, her chances of making it to the semis look very bright.
Parupalli Kashyap, who became the first Indian male shuttler to enter the quarterfinals of the Olympics, will also be embarking on a tough road. Defeating his quarterfinal opponent, world number two Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia, would undoubtedly be a daunting task.
Can the two create history and make it to the last four?
