The Indian men's doubles pair of Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy today suffered a straight-game defeat at the hands of Berry Angriawan and Hardianto Hardianto of Indonesia to bow out of the Australian Open Badminton Championship.
The third-seeded India duo lost 17-21 15-21 to their top seed opponents in a 39-minute contest at the Quay Centre Olympic Park Court.
With the pair's loss, the Indian challenge ended in the tournament. All the other Indians could not get past the quarterfinals.
Yesterday, fourth seed Sameer Verma was shocked by Chinese qualifier Lu Guangzu while second seed B Sai Praneeth was knocked out by Lee Cheuk Yiu in the men's singles quarterfinals.
