On the second day of the 49th edition of the Badminton National Championships, the list of semi-finalists has now been finalized.  This brought about some new names and a few others names which dropped off last year’s list.  However, this does not take any merit away from any of the matches played last weekend.  All the participating players gave their best performances on court and played till they dropped, trying to get one step closer to the final’s day.
