DEUCE! It's not over until Sathiyan says so!

What an array of shots from Sathiyan!!! 9-10!

Sathiyan is trying as hard as he can to take it to the fifth game.

06:56 (IST)9 APR 2018

Gao takes the third game. Can Sathiyan take it to the decider?

06:54 (IST)9 APR 2018

Gao is back in his groove. He leads 8-3

The third game ensues, Sathiyan trails 2-4

05:57 (IST)9 APR 2018

Sathiyan is partnering Harmeet in a surprising move. I feel if Sathiyan and Sharath paired up, they might have taken a lead in this match and then Sathiyan could have rounded things up

05:50 (IST)9 APR 2018

The next rubber is the doubles rubber is up next. India's No. 1 Sathiyan G will be in action for the first time today.

05:34 (IST)9 APR 2018

Sharath Kamal leads 4-3

05:34 (IST)9 APR 2018

Sharath Kamal is at his calmest best! He is serving with menace, his top spins are on points and the young Poh doesn't know what to do.

05:33 (IST)9 APR 2018

The second rubber gets underway.

05:33 (IST)9 APR 2018
