Badminton News : PV Sindhu, Kidambi Srikanth crash out in China Open

India's singles campaign in the China Open came to an end as Kidambi Srikanth and PV Sindhu crashed out in the quarterfinals in contrasting manners. Sindhu was the first to take the court against China's He Bingjiao. Third seeded Sindhu, who clinched three silver medals this season -- Commonwealth Games, World Championship and Asian Games -- lost 17-21, 21-17, 15-21 to the eighth seeded Chinese in the quarterfinal after a heavy fight. In the second quarterfinal match, Srikanth was no real match to Chinese Taipei's Chou Tien Chen losing 14-21, 14-21. It was Sindhu's third loss to Bingjiao, who had defeated her at the Indonesia Open and French Open in July and October this year. Sindhu frittered away a 8-3 advantage early on to lose the opening game but made a roaring comeback in the second before losing the decider after a late charge. India remained in contention on the men's doubles through Chirag Shetty and Satwik Sairaj Rankireddy. The Indian pair defeated Wahyu Nayaka and Ade Yusuf Santoso 16-21, 21-14, 21-15 in an hour's contest to enter the quarterfinals.
