India at 4th place in Uber Cup Asia Zone qualifier

Saina Nehwal and Trupti Murgunde won their respective singles matches but India still could not get past formidable Japan and settled for the fourth place in the Uber Cup Asia Zone qualifiers in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand today.
With this 2-3 defeat, the Indian women's team fate now depends on rankings of European qualifiers' fourth-place finishers Holland and some myriad calculations.

World number seven Saina got rid off 24th ranked Ai Goto 21-17 21-16 in 30 minutes to give India a headstart.

But the doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa lost to World number seven Fujii Mizuki and Kakiiwa Reika 16-21 15-21 in 32 minutes.

Sayali Gokhale was handed the task of beating world number 18 Hirose Eriko but despite putting up a gallant fight, she lost 20-22 13-21 in 33 minutes.
