Indian shuttler Sai Praneeth was knocked out of the Japan Open on Saturday as he lost his semi-final match against Japan's Kento Momota 18-21, 12-21.

The 26-year-old had defeated Indonesia's Tommy Sugiarto 21-12, 21-15 in the quarter-final match on Friday. However, Praneeth failed to carry forward his winning momentum as he lost the match in straight sets.
