Odense: Spanish shuttler Carolina Marin nearly pulled off a yet another nail-biting victory at the Denmark Open Superseries but ended up going down 15-21, 21-19, 18-21 to Japan's Akane Yamaguchi.
The reigning Olympic women's singles gold medallist and two-time world champion was unable to overcome the diminutive but powerful Yamaguchi on Saturday, who evened her head-to-head against the Spanish great at 2-2, reports Efe.
The eighth-seeded Japanese won the first game and took a lead in the second but Marin bounced back strongly to clinch the second game.
Marin rallied on the strength of accurate and powerful smashes some struck at speeds of up to 322 km (200 miles) per hour and errors by Yamaguchi to force the decider.
The Spaniard, who was struggling with a thigh injury took a medical timeout before the start of the third game.
Wearing a bandage when she returned to the court, Marin's movement was clearly restricted but she continued to fight for a fourth straight third-game victory and a berth in the final.
Yamaguchi, however, showed her mettle as well to hold on for a tough victory against a ferocious competitor.
