Incheon: Indian women Table Tennis players Manika Batra and Ankita Das lost their respective matches and were knocked out of the singles event of the 17th Asian Games here on Thursday.

Manika was blanked 0-4 (9-11, 6-11, 7-11, 8-11) in the pre-quarterfinal by Japan's Kasumi Ishikawa while Ankita was shown the door 2-4 (8-11, 5-11, 11-4, 7-11, 11-9, 4-11) in the second round by Hong Kong's N.G. Wing Nam.

Manika, World No.147, found the going tough from the outset against the World No.8, a silver medallist in the team event of the 2012 London Olympics. Manika, who earlier in the day defeated Macau's Ma Chao 4-0 (11-7, 11-4, 11-9, 11-6), produced her best but Kasumi was just too good for her.
