New Delhi, Dec 12 :  Saina Nehwal crashed out of the Macau Open Grand Prix Gold badminton tournament on Thursday after she went down to unseeded Zhang Yiman of China 12-21, 17-21 in a match that lasted 34 minutes.

Saina Nehwal, who has lost all her first-round games in the tournament so far, found herself in a similar position against the world No 226 on Thursday as well. In the first game, it was a dominant show from the Chinese who burst to an 11-8 lead at the halfway mark and then piled on the pressure on the former world No 1 to take the next 10 points in fine style while conceding only three.
