Shixian 21-15 20-22 12-21 in the women's singles competition. The World No.10 started the encounter on a positive note by clinching the first game 21-15. The second game went right till the end and Sindhu had victory in her sights but Shixian wasn't going to give it away easily and went on to level the match by winning the game 22-20. Sindhu ran out of steam in third set, and eventually lost 12-21 to Wang.

"Overall, Sindhu played well. It was an extremely close and long match. She was up 20-18 but she lost two points while serving. I think this has to do with experience and a bit of luck in such close matches. Its okay, at the end of the day, you will win some and lose some. I am happy with the way she is playing," said her coach Pullela Gopichand.

In women's doubles, Jwala and Ashwini failed to breach the defence of Luo Yu and Luo Ying, and suffered a 12-21 7-21 loss to the world number 10 Chinese pair. The Indian pair was very inconsistent and and played a lot of inaccurate strokes. The Indian duo tried to engage in long rallies with their rivals but faltered while finishing the points.
