Indonesia Open: 2 Losses and 5 wins for India as Kashyap Leads the Charge

On the first day when last week’s Australian Open Champion 3rd Seed Carolina Marin was knocked out in first round, while 2nd seed Lin Dan and Sun Yu of China lost their Men’s Singles matches too, Indians made merry. In the first round, Kashyap started the day on a positive note registering 3rd career win against Tanongsak, who has defeated him 4 times before. But Sindhu crashed despite taking the game to 3 sets. Thankfully 3-time Indonsia Open champion Saina, Srikanth and Co ensured a good finish for India. Tomorrow in the second round Saina plays Ching who defeated PV Sindhu today.
