Sourabh, Kashyap lose in Swiss Open

March 15, 2012 17:17 IST

Indian challenge ended in the men's singles competition with Ajay Jayaram, P Kashyap and Sourabh Verma losing their second round matches at the Swiss Open Grand Prix Gold in Basel.

Jayaram lasted a little over half an hour as Pedro Martins notched up a 21-16, 21-16 win last night, while P Kashyap also went down to seventh seed Tien Minh Nguyen 13-21, 18-2.

National champion Sourabh also found the going tough and suffered a 10-21, 9-21 defeat to 13th seeded Korean Wan Ho Shon in 30 minutes.

India ace and defending champion Saina Nehwal and men's doubles pair of Rupesh Kumar and Sanave Thomas are the only survivors in the tournament now.

The third seeded Indian will take on Judith Meulendijks of the Netherlands in the third round match later in the day.

Rupesh and Sanave will fight it out with fifth seeded Indonesian pair of Alvent Yulianto Chandra and Hendra Aprida Gunawan.
