    India’s badminton campaign in the Olympics was off to a disappointing start, as the mixed doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and V. Diju went down in straight games to Indonesia’s Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir in their opening group match on Saturday.

    Jwala and Diju lost 16-21, 12-21 in just 25 minutes at the Wembley Arena. In a lopsided contest, Jwala and Diju failed to be in the lead even once in the entire duration of the Group C encounter.

    The Indians will now be up against the Danish combination of Thomas Laybourn and Kamilla Rytter Juhl in their next match on Sunday. The top two teams from each group will qualify for the quarterfinals.
