India's Manika Batra failed to win a medal at the World Table Tennis Championships after crashing out in the quarter-finals of the mixed and women's doubles, in Houston, on Saturday.


Just one win away from a historic medal, Batra and G Sathiyan lost to Japan's Tomakazu Harimoto and Hina Hayata 5-11, 2-11, 11-7, 9-11 in the last eight round of the mixed doubles.

Batra had another opportunity to create history but faltered again, losing the women's doubles quarter-finals with partner Archana Kamath in straight games.

Batra and Kamath were no match for the Luxembourg duo of Sarah De Nutte and Ni Xia Lian, going down 1-11, 6-11, 8-11.
