33-year-old Ashwini said

“I was a little rusty in my game. It was our first time playing in a major tournament and it took some time to settle. I made some silly mistakes but Prateek came up with some good smashes. I was impressed by his playing. We need these types of matches to be stronger in future tournaments,”
