India lose to China in the Asian Table Tennis Championships

China, playing without its top player, World Champion Ma Long, was still powerful enough to beat India by the expected 3-0 margin.

Xu Xin took China to 1-0 by beating Harmeet Desai 11-9, 11-9 and 11-3. Chinese great Zhang Jike enhanced the score by overcoming G Sathiyan 11-5, 11-3, and 11-4. Young Fan Zhendong completed the rout and put an end to India's challenge by beating National Champion Soumyajit Ghosh 11-6, 11-7, and 11-8.
