Chirag and Satwik on Monday were defeated by world number one Indonesian pair of Marcus Gideon and Kevin Sukamuljo in the Group A Play Stage here at the Musashino Forest Plaza Court 1 in the ongoing Tokyo Olympics. “We started well in both the first and second games. In the second, we had a key point leading 6-3 and we were on top, it was our point, but we somehow messed it up and they played well, and from there we gave up some easy points and that frustrated us,” Shetty told the Badminton World Federation’s (BWF) website.
Talking about the match, Satwik said: “They are more steady now than before. Their service was really brilliant today. We couldn’t do anything about their service. We tried but we couldn’t find a way, and it’s the same story from before against them. We couldn’t find a way.”
Satwiksairaj & Chirag Shetty will now play Ben Lane & Sean Vendy in their next pool match on Tuesday.
