Jwala and Diju lost the semifinal match 6-21, 21-19, 21-19 that lasted for 53 minutes. The Indian challenge at the tournament ends with the Jwala and Diju ouster.

The Indian pair seeded 56 in the world started with a bang and looked to net an easy win as they were in complete control of the first game. Jwala and Diju took a 5-0 lead and then surged ahead 15-5 before winning the first game easily.

Despite coming close in the second game and the decider the Indians seem to have run out of luck and went down fighting.
