Olympics TT: Ankita exits after losing opener

Ankita Das 699370London, July 28 (Agency)

Indian paddler Ankita Das stretched higher-ranked Sara Ramirez before going down in the women's singles first round of table tennis competitions at the London Olympics here Saturday.

 

The 19-year-old lost to the 83rd-ranked Spaniard 9-11, 8-11, 7-11, 11-8, 2-11 to exit from the competition.

 

Ankita, making her Olympic debut here, seemed overwhelmed by the occasion. The Indian did well to win the fourth game but committed far too many un-forced errors through out the match. The World No.226 was particularly found wanting against controlling top spin drives of her opponent.

 

Later in the day, World No.206 Soumyajit Ghosh faces Brazilian Gustavo Tsuboi in the men's singles first round.
