Gutta Jwala (@Guttajwala) September 9, 2015The Glasgow Commonwealth Games silver medalists lost Tuesday’s match against eighth seeds Zhao Yunlei and Zhong Qianxin of China 20-22, 21-18, 13-21. The duo battled hard before going down in a match that lasted for 54 minutes. Jwala played the match despite being ill. “Sad that we lost today.The match was good though. @Guttajwala played really well despite being so sick. hope you well soon partner,” Ashwini tweeted. A quarterfinal finish in last month’s World Championships saw Jwala and Ashwini reach their career-best ranking of No 10 in women’s doubles. The duo had won the Canada Open and reached the final of the US Open.The first round defeat in Tokyo was rather shocking considering the recent form of the shuttlers.Notably, World No. 1 shuttler Saina Nehwal had opted out of the $600,000 tournament.last_img
