On the other hand, the Mukherjee sisters, Ahyika and Sutirtha, faced disappointment as they bowed out of the women’s round of 16, suffering a defeat against the formidable pair of Adina Diaconu and Maria Xiao. Despite their best efforts, they were unable to overcome their higher-ranked opponents, losing with a scoreline of 1-3 (4-11, 14-12, 3-11, 9-11).

From the start, the Indian pair seemed uneasy and struggled for direction. They made many mistakes, hitting the ball into the net, and constantly trailed their opponents, who were quick to capitalize on their errors.
