Arun-Aparna go down fighting -BAC-2011

The last remaining challenge at the Badminton Asia Championships-2011 being held at China came to and end on day 3, but not before Indian Arun Vishnu and Aparna Balan gave the World No.2 pair a run for their money.

Arun Vishnu/Aparna Balan lost to the world no.2 Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam of Thailand by a score of 14-21, 21-23.

Other Indians in the fray at the Badminton Asia championships had already crashed out of the tournament yesterday.

The next important tourney coming up on the badminton calender is the India Open Super Series-2011 which will be held at New Delhi in India from 26-Apr to 1-May. The tournament which was a Grand Prix level event earlier has been accorded a Super series status from this year, and hence Indian players have a lot to gain from this forthcoming event in terms of ranking points as also in terms of exposure to high quality international players who will be taking part in the event.
World no.1 Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia as also World No.3 Taufiq Hidayat of Indonesia have confirmed their participation for the India Open.
