World No. 1 Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty crashed out of the Singapore Open after suffering a shock defeat against Denmark’s World No. 34 Daniel Lundgaard and Mads Vestergaard in the opening round here on Tuesday.


One of the favourites to win a gold medal at Paris Olympics, Satwik and Chirag, who had claimed the Thailand Open Super 500 early this month, lost 20-22, 18-21 to Daniel and Mads in a 47-minute clash of the Super 750 badminton tournament.


It turned out to be a dismal day for India as Aakarshu Kashyap and Priyanshu Rajawat also failed to cross the opening hurdle in singles competition.


While World No. 41 Kashyap lost 7-21, 15-21 to Thailand’s Pornpicha Choeikeewong, ranked 42nd, Rajawat fought hard before going down 21-23, 19-21 to Hong Kong’s Lee Cheuk Yiu. Women’s doubles pair of Rutuparna Panda and Swetaparna Panda lost 12-21, 21-12, 13-21 to Chinese Taipei’s Chang Ching Hui and Yang Ching Tun.

Ashith Surya and Amrutha Pramuthesh also lost 8-21, 17-21 to Hong Kong’s Lee CHun Hei Reginald and Ng Tsz Yau in mixed doubles.
