China were eliminated in the quarters or earlier for the first time ever in Thomas cup.

Agree with sameer on having zero chance against the Chinese women. Hope Saina and Sindhu can win to help their ranking cause for seedings at Rio. Also would help from a confidence perspective.

They could not do that and we lost 0-3.

Uber Cup

Semi finals

India l. China 0-3

Saina NEHWAL (IND,8) l. LI Xuerui (CHN,3) 15-21 21-12 17-21

P. V. Sindhu (IND,10) l. WANG Shixian (CHN,6) 13-21 21-23

Jwala GUTTA / NELAKURIHI Sikki Reddy (IND) l. ZHAO Yunlei / TIAN Qing (CHN) 6-21 6-21

Both Saina and Sindhu seem to have a metal block against Chinese players. Saina has lost the last 7 matches against Li and at least 3 of them she has come quite close but not able to get over the line.

Sindhu was up 18-8 in the second game but allowed Wang to come back and win in straight games.

Both will have to overcome this if they have to aim for a medal at Rio.

Yes, BFI is resting key players due to injuries and have them fresh for Asian games/world championships later in the year.

For thomas cup, Srikanth and the top doubles team Satwik-Chirag are not there and strangely # singles Prannoy and #2 doubles Manu-Sumit were rested for the match against France. Still, Sameer Verma and Lakshya Sen should have won their matches.

In uber cup, no Sindhu and no Ashwini-Sikki. Again Saina lost her match which made it easier for Canada to win.

Looks like with not much chance of progressing with weak team, those who are playing are also not motivated enough.

This is quite myopic. Giving up before the competition has even started is simply ridiculous!

Surprised by the team selections. Uber and Thomas Cups should have been given priority as the top team competitions in badminton. Understand leaving out those who aren't 100% fit from the team but it seems we even fielded the second string among the folks who were sent which really made little sense.

Badminton is one of the few sports (other than cricket and shooting) in which we are now a serious world power (at least in singles; we have two of the best women players of the past decade, and 3 top-20 men). For us not to compete properly for the main world team championship for the sport is absolutely bizarre and mind-boggling. When will our sports administrators ever come to their senses?

Totally agree with Arjun and PKB. Uber/Thomas Cup are very important events in the badminton calendar and should not be given short shrift.

Uber cup 2018, India has shown tremendous team spirit, and their passion for game badminton too. We love the way Indians have played the game throughout the tournament with so much confidence. I think India will get more and more medal in the coming future. All the best India
