Taufik Hidayat didn’t have a good feeling about his group-stage draw.

Down one set and just a point shy of extending the match to a deciding third set, Taufik instead saw Bao string together four consecutive points en route to a 21-18, 26-24 victory at Bandaraya Indoor Stadium.

Indonesia went 0-2 on the day after Alvent Yulianto Chandra and Hendra Aprida Gunawan dropped a 21-16, 21-18 decision to Carsten Mogensen and Mathias Boe of Denmark in men’s doubles action.
