Sindhu's downfall ends India's challenge at Badminton Asia Championships

The world number three, who is the only Indian shuttler remaining in the continental tournament, made light work of China Masters champion Aya Ohori 21-14, 21-15 in the R16 clash yesterday.

Olympic silver medallistIndia's P.V. Sindhu of India sailed into the quarterfinals of the Badminton Asia Championships with another clinical performance here on Thursday. A win in this game would have actually assured a Bronze Medal for Sindhu which has now become a dream.

Sindhu was her aggressive best against her Chinese opponent on Friday, winning the opening game. On the other hand, in the mixed doubles event, Indian pair of Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy lost to top seeded Chinese duo of Siwei Zheng and Qingchen Chen 15-21 21-14 16-21 in a 50-minute long game.

The match began after the fourth seeded Indian took the first game 21-15 and looked in a phenomenal touch.

Doubles too could not bring any delight to the Indian contingent at Wuhan.




Sindhu broke free from the 7th point in the first game and increased the margin to 11-7 in one serve.

However, Ajay Jayaram exited after a 21-19, 21-10 loss to Hsu Jen Hao of Chinese Taipei.

The second game saw Jayaram giving up easy points.

Sindhu and Bingjiao met four times past year, with the former winning three of those clashes including their last meeting at 2016 China Open. The match lasted 35 minutes.
