Match Ends!

Sofia Polcanova beats Manika Batra 11-8, 11-2, 11-5, 11-7. 


Manika Batra could not reproduce the same magic which helped her make a comeback in round 2. Sofia Polcanova was too strong for the Indian paddler. She kept committing errors and conceding points. The lack of a coach on her side cost her dearly.

Unfortunately, Manika Batra's journey at Tokyo Olympics comes to an end.

Only Achanta Sharat Kamal is remaining in contention. He won his Round 2 match against Tiago Apolonia. His next match is against Long Ma of China. That match is scheduled for tomorrow. 

Join us for the coverage of that match. Until then cya!
