Singapore women's singles shuttler Gu Juan made light work of her opponents in her opening match at the badminton World Championships, beating Lithuania's Akvile Stapusaityte 21-4, 21-12 on Tuesday evening.

The world No. 20 will meet Thailand's world No. 5 Ratchanok Intanon next in the third round. Singapore shuttlers Vanessa Neo (right) and Danny Bawa Chrisnanta's campaign at the badminton world championships have come to an end, after the mixed doubles pair lost in their opening match to South Korea's Shin Baek Choel and Eom Hye Won on Tuesday, Aug 6, 2013.

Mixed doubles pair Vanessa Neo and Danny Bawa Chrisnanta, however, ended their campaign after going down in their opening match to South Korea's Shin Baek Choel and Eom Hye Won. The Singaporeans, ranked 16th in the world, lost 19-21, 13-21 to their world No. 22 opponents.

Despite narrowly losing the opening game, Neo and Chrisnanta had started off the second game brightly, racing to a 4-0 lead. But the duo allowed the South Koreans to claw back, at one point allowing them a eight-point streak.
