Saina Nehwal bowed out of the Hong Kong Open badminton after losing to Denmark's Tine Baun 16-21, 15-21 in the women's singles quarterfinals here on Friday.
Baun, seeded seventh, took just 29 minutes to beat fourth seeded Saina.
Saina, who was defending her title here, has been going through a form slump this year.
It was also end of the road for Ajay Jayaram and Gurusaidutt in the men's singles.
Jayaram gave a tough fight to top seeded Lee Chong Wei, before losing 16-21, 13-21.
Gurusaidutt went down to second seeded Long Chen 13-21, 21-23.
