Chinese paddlers sweep team titles


In Junior boys, India lost to Japan 2-3 in a keenly contested encounter. G Sathiyan won both his singles but it was Soumyajit Ghosh’s disappointing show that put paid to India’s chances as he squandered an early lead over rival Ueda Jin.

The Indian Junior girls too lost out against runners-up Hong Kong 2-3 in a marathon match which lasted more than two hours, while in Cadet boys, India suffered a humiliating 0-3 defeat against Japan.

India’s Cadet girls had failed to reach the quarterfinals on Thursday after losing to Thailand 2-3.

China asserted their supremacy once again. In Junior boys, China defeated Korea 3-1, while the girls handed a 3-0 mauling to the same opponents.

China beat Korea 3-1 in Cadet boys and the story was no different in Cadet girls, where they spanked Japan 3-0.
