World No. 3 Saina Nehwal lost to World No. 6 Carolina Marin 21-16, 14-21,7-21 in the All England Badminton Championships final. After making a fantastic start and clinching the first game, Saina faced a remarkable resurgence from the Spaniard. Marin bounced back with renewed vigour and left the Indian in dire straits by winning the next two game. Saina failed to capture the coveted title for the third time as she had lost in the All England semifinals in 2010 and 2013. This was Saina's first defeat against Marin in four meetings.
