Aditi, Arundhati crash out of Swedish open

In a disappointing day for Indian badminton fans, both Aditi Mutatkar & Arundhati Pantawane of India unexpectedly crashed out in the first round of the main draw itself, at the Swedish Open badminton tournament today.

Mayu Sekiya (world ranking 152) of Japan first defeated Arundhati Pantawane 21-7, 22-20, and some time later it was Kaori Imabeppu (world ranking 87) also of Japan, who defeated Aditi Mutatkar 21-19, 22-20

To go all the way to Sweden & lose in the first round... Must be very disappointing for the players, as also for indian badminton fans, and bad for the growth of badminton in India in general...

The only silver lining was the matches were very close, and the girls did not go down without fighting... apart from this not much to talk about of this day...
