    Coming into Tokyo, Sharath Kamal believed he was playing better than ever. It showed with his third-round entry in singles. A kinder draw might have seen him make a deeper run. At 39, in his fourth outing at the Olympic stage, Sharath can look back with content.


    This also ends India's table tennis campaign in Tokyo. A tale of tough draws, tough fights and tough results. Sharath and Manika's singles runs the bright sparks.

    That's it, then. The last two games went more according to script. Sharath played at his absolute optimum level, especially in the first three games. All he got to show for it is a game. Which, in itself, is a big deal against a giant like Ma Long. Sharath wanted to challenge the Chinese, and he sure did.

    China's Ma Long brought the big guns in Game 4 as he starts to come back out of the weeds he was in in the past two games. He is off to a perfect start here, taking a 6-0 lead. This was Ma Long dictating the game as many had predicted he would.


    For the first time in this match, it's been one-way traffic. Ma Long playing more like the player we know, and dominating more like the legend we know. Has the fight been snuffed out of the Indian?

    Table Tennis: Sharath Kamal loses Game 3 11-13 against China's Ma Long in Men's Singles Round 3 match


    This is an intense battle. If Sharath manages to win this one, we are in for a major upset here. Sharath is leading with 2 points. Ma Long manages to get back the lead in the match. This is going point-by-point in this game. China's Ma Long took the lead - Sharath manages to save two-game points to take it to deuce. But Ma Long escapes with a narrow win.


    Sharath would've felt he should have taken this game too, but Ma Long steals it right at the end from deuce. The moment the Indian goes back to playing a safe game, the Chinese is all over him. But Ma Long is looking nervous; you can see it in his body language. The Dictator is sure being challenged by the 39-year-old Indian.
