There used to be a time when it was only Saina vs China. Glad that @Pvsindhu1 has come along to share the burden. Sindhu vs Chen Yufei in SF— Viren Rasquinha (@virenrasquinha) August 25, 2017
Earlier in the day, Kidambi Srikanth went down fighting to World no.1 Son Wan Ho of Korea in men’s single competition. There had been hugh hopes from Srikanth after his superb show at the Indonesia and Australia open where he won back to back titles. But, it was not his day today as Wan was at his very best and won the match in straight sets.
Couldn't get my game going today and made too many mistakes. Credits to him for playing so well and for not letting me get back in. pic.twitter.com/RrpOQkVG64— Kidambi Srikanth (@srikidambi) August 25, 2017
