It was a disappointing day for the Indian athletes at the Tokyo Games on Monday with the day culminating in a 0-2 loss for the Indian women’s hockey team. This was India’s second straight loss in Pool A following a 5-1 hammering at the hands of the Netherlands. The loss leaves India at the bottom of Pool A.

Earlier in the day, boxer Ashish Kumar Chaudhary was knocked out in the Round of 32 when he lost his bout against Erbieke Tuoheta of China in the men’s Middle (69-75kg) category. Indian star player Manika Batra was also exited after losing her women’s singles third round match to Sofia Polcanova of Austria in straight games. The bright sport for India came early in the day with Sharath Kamal claiming a 4-2 win against Portugal’s Tiago Apolonia in Round 2 of the men’s singles table tennis event.

Indian tennis star Sumit Nagal was knocked out in the men’s singles event as he lost his second round match against Russia’s Daniil Medvedev in straight sets. Indian archery team of Atanu Das, Pravin Jadhav, and Tarundeep Rai lost in the quarterfinals of the men’s team event, going down 0-6 to South Korea. The Indian team had defeated Kazakhstan 6-2 earlier to advance to the quarterfinals, but the Korean side proved too good.

India’s tough day continued when Indian duo Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty lost their men’s doubles badminton match in straight games, 21-13 21-12, against Indonesian pair of Marcus Fernaldi Gideon and Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo. After registering a victory earlier in the day, Indian fencer Bhavani Devi was knocked out by France’s Manon Brunet 7-15 in Women’s Sabre Individual Table Of 32. In men’s shooting – Skeet Men’s Qualification – Angad Vir Singh Bajwa (Rank 18) and Mairaj Ahmad Khan (Rank 25) failed to qualify for the final. The Indian women’s hockey team, after losing their Olympics opener to the Netherlands, will be up against Germany in their Pool A fixture.
