Asian Games will be quite tough compared to Commonwealth Games as table tennis giants China, Korea and Japan will be there as tight competition. With boosted confidence from the CWG performance, we will try to beat them. I won’t say that we will win medals in Asian Games, but we will give it our best shot, that’s for sure, “she said.
