Chinese interest ends
China’s Xu Xin and Chen Meng, in the eyes of many favourites for gold, suffered a quarter-final mixed doubles defeat. They were beaten by Chinese Taipei’s Lin Yin-Ju and Cheng I-Ching in three straight games (11-6, 11-9, 11-9).
“I think we had better mindset. The first two games were easier but the third game was quiet tough. We just told ourselves to carry out tactics more firmly. Our opponents were nervous today.” Cheng I-Ching
“Today I did not give too much pressure to our opponent.” Xu Xin
