Following their final's silver on Sunday, Chinnappa expressed, "It's great that we could be in the finals, we had a great chance to win". The Indian pair fought hard before losing to Australia's Donna Urquhart and Cameron Pilley 8-11, 10-11 in a gruelling gold medal match. "It's disappointing, but it happens, that's sport". They need to be looked at. "If they don't, then the game doesn't grow", Pallikal said. It is sad to see that the players and the game are growing, but not the officials. Obviously disappointed to lose out on the gold we can be proud of the way we played.

Going by the number of medals, it was India's best ever performance at the Games ever since the sport was introduced way back in 1998.
