Uber Cup final: the Indian team beaten 0-5 by Korea | badminton news


BANGKOK (Reuters) – Two-time Olympic medalist PV Sindhu was once again defeated by world number four An Seyoung as India’s women’s badminton team suffered a demoralizing 0-5 loss to Korea in their final game of the Uber Cup Final Group D here on Wednesday.
After two successive wins over Canada and USA, it was a reality check for the young Indian side as they couldn’t take a single game from the Koreans in the five-game encounter.
However, defeat won’t count for much as India have already secured a place in the quarter-finals after securing a top-two spot in the group following two wins.
For Sindhu, it was a disappointing outing as she succumbed to her fifth straight loss to An Seyoung, losing 15-21 14-21 this time in a lopsided game as India conceded an early 0-1 lead.
Shruti Mishra and Simran Singhi’s combo was no match for the world No. 2 pair of Lee Sohee and Shin Seungchan, losing 13-21 12-21 in 39 minutes.
Aakarshi Kashyap was then dispatched 10-21 10-21 by world number 19 Kim Ga Eun as India abandoned the tie 0-3.
In the next two matches, Kim Hye Jeong and Kong Heeyong beat Tanisha Crasto and Treesa Jolly 21-14 21-11, while Ashmita Chaliha lost 18-21 17-21 to Sim Yujin as Korea finished the thrashing 5 -0 from India.
The Indian men’s team will face Chinese Taipei in Group C of the Thomas Cup Final later today.
