Gulf Times Sport - - SPORT -

The In­dian pres­ence at the China Open bad­minton tour­na­ment came to an end yes­ter­day with P V Sindhu and Ki­dambi Srikanth los­ing their re­spec­tive quar­ter­fi­nal matches.

Sindhu went down in the women’s sin­gles quar­ter-fi­nal to the eighth seed He Bingjiao of China 17-21, 21-17, 15-21 in a marathon 69-minute match. Third seed Sindhu lost the first game but bounced back in the sec­ond game to take the match to the de­cider.

In the third game, there was no match of the Chi­nese shut­tler as the Rio Olympic sil­ver medal­list was over­pow­ered eas­ily. In men’s sin­gles match, fifth seed Ki­dambi Srikanth lost to fourth seed Chou Tien Chen of Chi­nese Taipei 14-21, 14-21 in just 35 min­utes.

In both the games, the Gun­tur player never looked to be in con­tention and gave some easy points to bow out of the meet.
