Saina, Kashyap shown the door in China

Nov 14 2013, 6:46am CST | by IANS

Shanghai, Nov 14 (IANS) Indians suffered a disappointing day at the China Open Super Series Premier with star shuttler Saina Nehwal and Arundhati Pantawane going down in the women's singles second round while Parupalli Kashyap lost in the men's singles competition here Thursday.

Shanghai, Nov 14 — Indians suffered a disappointing day at the China Open Super Series Premier with star shuttler Saina Nehwal and Arundhati Pantawane going down in the women's singles second round while Parupalli Kashyap lost in the men's singles competition here Thursday.

While Saina lost 21-16, 15-21, 17-21 to unseeded Sun Yu of China, Arundhati was defeated 13-21, 10-21 by third seed Wang Yihan, also of China.

Kashyap was defeated 11-21, 12-21 by Kento Momota of Japan.

Saina, who was hoping to win her first trophy of the season, started off well enough coming back from an early 4-1 deficit to dominate the opening game.

But it was a completely different story in the second game as Sun opened up a 3-0 lead and maintained the advantage right till the end to even up the score.

The third and final game was an exciting affair with both players going for broke. Sania put up good a fight, winning three consecutive points to draw level at 8-8 before the Chinese came up with an incredible seven-point streak to lead 15-8.

The Hyderabad girl was in no mood to go down without a fight and produced a seven-point streak of her own to draw level yet again at 15-15. However, Sun had the last laugh, taking four points on the trot to wrap up the match. Sun will now face compatriot and top seed Li Xuerui in the quarter-finals.

Results:

Women's singles: 6-Saina Nehwal lost to Sun Yu (Chn) 21-16, 15-21, 17-21; Arundhati Pantawane lost to Wang Yihan (Chn) 13-21, 10-21.

Men's singles: Parupalli Kashyap lost to Kento Momota (Jpn) 11-21, 12-21.

Dana White: Hector Lombard vs. Tyron Woodley 'is the UFC fight we want to do'

Aug 28 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: MMAmania.com

Lombard is ready to go, all UFC needs is the green light from Woodley. Matt Brown isn't the only one who's uninterested in engaging in fisticuffs with Tyron Woodley, as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White, isn't so keen on that match up, either. Woodley recently took the chance to call out "The Immortal" welterweight shortly after "The Chosen One" disposed of Dong Hyun Kim -- a fighter Woodley believes should have been ra ...

Six reasons why women should fake a pregnancy

Aug 28 2014 6:11am CDT | Source: the guardian

A panda in China has duped its keepers into giving it more food by appearing to be pregnant. You too can reap the benefits of a faked foetusThere we were thinking pandas were stupid, that they were an evolutionary dead-end that could not even reproduce without the help of the Chinese state. But it seems we have underestimated them. A giant panda by the name of Ai Hin fooled her keepers into thinking she was pregnant to get more food. Perhaps humans have something to learn from Ai ...

I let people hold such receptions to help pay for the maintenance of two crumbling Inigo Jones pavilions ...
