Agency Suzhou: Maisnam Meiraba put up a herculean effort to help Indian shuttlers set up a quarter-final clash with Indonesia at the Badminton Asia Junior Championships here Sunday. Meiraba, who has been in sterling form of late and even won his first international tournament at the White Night Russian Junior International earlier this month, was the sole winner of the day for the Indian contingent in their 1-4 loss to Korea. The Manipuri refused to give up and fought for one hour 32 minutes to subdue Korea’s Hyeon Seung Park. The mixed doubles pair of Dingku Singh Konthoujam and Ritika Thaker fought for 56 minutes before going down 21-19, 12-21, 12-21 to Dong Ju Ki and Eun Ji Lee. Goa’s Tanisha Crasto and Kerala’s Treesa Jolly were equally impressive in their 16-21, 21-16, 12-21 girl’s doubles loss to Young Bin Ji and Eun Ji Lee.
