Sameer Verma and Rituparna Das end their campaign after losing in straight games to their respective opponents. Notably, Lin Dan survived a second round scare as Emil Host of Denmark showed great courage against the five-time champion.

Carolina Marin humiliates Yip Pui: 21-5, 21-7

What do we call this performance? It wasn't just dominating but an indication of what is to come in the upcoming rounds from the Spaniard as she looks fit and dangerous on the court. Marin just took 28 mins to thrash the Hong Kong shuttler and enter the pre-quarterfinals of the women's singles.

16-7! Yip is running out of steam against quick Marin, who is way quicker than the Hong Kong shuttler. She means business!

9-6! Marin is looking set to play a series of attacking shots as she shifts her position from the mid-court to the forecourt.

Carolina Marin dominates the opening game: 21-5

This is not the way to approach a game against Marin. Yip's coach should instruct her to use another tactic to unsettle the Spaniard. Marin is unbeatable at the net and the Hong Kong shuttler must try to play long rallies instead.

9-3! Marin is very much in control of her strokes from the mid-court and forecourt. A smash makes it 10-3 to the Spaniard. She looks in great touch.

3-1! A quick start for Marin as the Spaniard receives a huge roar inside the Emirates Arena. Yip looks to have taken the backcourt.  


Day 2 report: PV Sindhu, B. Sai Praneeth, Ajay Jayaram and the mixed doubles pair of Pranaav Jerry Chopra and N Sikki Reddy advanced but the mixed doubles pairing of B Sumeeth Reddy and Ashwini Ponnappa lost in the second round of the World Badminton Championships on Tuesday.
