Satwik move into the quarters of Thailand Open with Chirag and Ashwini

It was a disappointing day for India today at Thailand Open 2019 with only 3 wins and 5 losses.

Satwiksairaj & Chirag Indonesia Masters

India’s day started with a good news when Satwiksairaj Rankireddy/Chirag Sheety defeated world no 7 Indonesian pair of Fajar Alfian/Muhammad Rian Ardianto to enter the quarter-finals.

But later both India’s top players Saina Nehwal and Kidambi Srikanth lost their respective matches. Both started good winning the first set but could not maintain the momentum and eventually lost their matches. Saina Nehwal lost to Sayaka Takahashi of Japan 21-16,11-21,14-21. Kindambi Srikanth lost to Khosit Phetpradab of Thailand 21-11,16-21,12-21. It was very disappointing as both players lost to lower ranked opponents.

In mixed doubles,we still has some hopes from Satwik and Ashwini. Satwiksairaj Rankireddy/Ashwini Ponnappa beat Alfian Eko Prasetya/ Marsheilla Gischa Islami of Indonesia 21-18,21-19 to reach the quarter-finals.
