IANS logoIANS 26-04-2017

In a relatively lop-sided affair, World No.3 Sindhu outplayed Ayustine 21-8 21-18 in just 31 minutes while the seventh seed Saina, who has two bronze medals from the continent's marquee event, was prevailed over 21-19, 16-21, 18-21 by her Japanese opponent in a match that lasted over one hour.

In mixed doubles category, it was end of road for Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N.Sikki Reddy as the Indian pair failed to climb the Chinese wall and thus got beaten by Zheng Siwei and Chen Qingchen in the opening round of the tournament.
