The Uber Cup 2022 has been quite a journey for the Indian team, who made the quarterfinals after a fantastic performance where they stayed clear of USA and Canada with back to back wins.
However, their cracks started to show when they lost 0-5 against Korea. The cracks widened even more and broke the streak of the Indian women’s team as they lost 0-3 against Thailand once again. World no. 7 PV Sindhu had a hard fought fight against world no. 8 Ratchanok Intanon before going down 21-18 17-21 12-21. This defeat now means that Sindhu has a trailing record with Intanon of 4-7.

Next, Shruti Mishra and Simran Singhi lost 16-21 13-21 against the Thai pair of Jongkolphan Kititharakul and Rawinda Prajongjai, bringing the score down further to 0-2. Aakarshi Kashyap then went down 16-21 11-21 to Pornpawee Chochuwong in the second singles match that lasted 42 minutes.
Thailand did take the lead 3-0 after that, and any matches that were to be played were rendered redundant. Earlier on Wednesday, Sindhu lost in straight games 15-21 14-21 against world number four An Seyoung in India’s final Group D match, where it was won 0-5 by Korea.
