In the entire contest, Deepika managed a high score of 10 only once while her opponent hit the bull's eye 6 times.

The 22-year-old Deepika had lost in the 1st round in the last Olympics in London 2012 but progressed to last 16 this time but a medal eluded for the youngster from Jharkhand.

After Deepika's exit, Bombayla took the field to face Mexico's Alejandra Valencia. She lost the first set 26-28 but bounced back in the next with a score of 26-23.

However, Alejandra has the last laugh with scores of 28-27, 25-23 to move into the quarter-finals with an overall result of 6-2.
