China is formidable in all 5 matches. The only match where we will go with higher ranked player is in Sindhu' match against either Sun Yu or Chen Yufei. In all other matches we will go in huge underdogs. So, it is futile to expect anything more than a 1-4 loss. 2-3 would be great. Anything more will be miraculous.

Other than Srikanth's win, the Indian men have been pretty bad. Sindhu is looking like a world beater and the women's doubles team has also played well.

In the first match, valient fight by our new mixed doubles pairing of Sathwik and Ashiwini but they lost in close 3 games to world #2 Chinese pair 21-16, 13-21, 16-21.

But, kudos to our pair who are playing together for the first time to be playing at the level of top 10 pairs in all the matches. They can go a long way if they keep playing like this, particularly this kid Satwik who is really good.

Srikanth lost 16-21 17-21 against Chen Long. So, we are down 0-2.

The lame performances from the men continued. We would have put up a better fight if our women had played earlier in this tie...

We needed Ashwini to play first (since she was playing both XD and WD) and that forced the WS tie to be later. At least based on badmintoncentral forum.
