Olympic silver medallist Sindhu bowed out of the badminton tournament after a 21-13, 21-9 loss to local favourite Ratchanok Intanon in the quarter-finals,
‘I think I made a lot of unforced errors and gave away easy points. I didn’t play my best, it wasn’t my day. Intanon is a great player and I was prepared for that. I was responding to all her strokes, but I was making mistakes. If I had won the first game, I think things would have been comparatively different,” Sindhu said after the game.
