Indian shuttlers P V Sindhu and Kidambi Srikanth lost in their respective second round matches in the BWF World Tour Finals.
A week ago Sindhu was defeated by Ratchanok Intanon. There was no change of fate for the World Champion this time too as she went down 18-21 13-21 to the third-seeded Thai.
“It wasn’t my day. Losing the first game made the difference. My timing was a bit off, so a bit disappointed,” said Sindhu.
Twainese world no 12 Wang Tzu Wei defeated Kidambi Srikanth and claimed a come-from-behind 19-21 21-9 21-19 win over the Indian.
“I have to figure out a way to pull out these close matches. I was dominating him for most part of third game. I think it’s about match practice, playing against top players continuously. We haven’t played for a year, and before that I wasn’t playing against top eight players continuously. I feel I’m almost there,” Srikanth said after losing yet another three-game contest.
