After three straight first round exits, Sameer Verma improved at the Bitburger Badminton Open to reach the semi-finals. Three weeks later, he’s gone one step better and reached the final of the Hong Kong Open Superseries. And in the process, he created a massive upset to beat Jan O’Jorgensen in the semi-final.

To add to his glorious moment, Sameer would come from being down and out to win both the games against the Dane. In the end, he won 21-19, 24-22 against the World No 3.

Now, he faces 22-year-old local player NG Ka Long Angus in the final and would need to circumvent another opponent if he is to win the title – home crowd. Catch live scores and updates from Sameer Verma’s final in Hong Kong Open Superseries.
