Who will be the Indian athletes in action?

In badminton, PV Sindhu remains the sole Indian woman still participating, and will take on China's Wang Yihan in the quarter-final. Two-time World Championship bronze-medalist Sindhu will face a steep task against Yihan, who won silver at the 2012 London Games after defeating Saina Nehwal in the semi-finals.

In wrestling, Hardeep Singh will take on Turkey's Cenk Ildem in the men's Greco-Roman 98-kg round-of-16 eliminations.

What are India's medal prospects?

India will not compete in any medal events on Tuesday. However, the country's medal hopes will rest on these performances, especially shuttler PV Sindhu's. A win for her will mean a semi-final slot and a shot at an elusive medal.
