New Delhi, Apr 7 (PTI) Ace shuttler Saina Nehwal crashed out after a first-round defeat but P Kashyap and Anand Pawar kept India's hopes afloat by wining their opening men's singles matches of the Asian Badminton Championship in Suwon, Korea today.
World number eight and seventh seed Saina put up a brave effort but eventually ran out of steam against defending champion Jiang Yanjiao of China, losing 21-14 14-21 12-21 in a 40-minute battle in the women's singles event today.

World number 13 and third seed Chetan Anand also suffered a straight-game defeat against little known Kozai Kazuteru of Japan to crash out in the first round. The Indian lost 13-21 19-21 to Kozai in a 30-minute battle.

P Kashyap and Anand Pawar turned out to be the stars of the day as they won their respective matches to sail into the next round.

Kashyap spanked Nepalese Rana Kishor 21-7 21-7 to set up a clash with 15th seed Korean Hong Ji Hoon, who beat Teav Yongvannak of Cambodia in the first round. PTI
