Anders Antonsen can head home after losing in the first round of India Open. 

Antonsen lost 22-20 21-8 to Sameer Verma from India, and the Dane believes that it was one mistake which cost him the tie but he knows he will learn from it.

- Played a really good first set until 20-18... Lost it 20-22 and wasn’t able to leave the set behind me. A mistake that shows I’m still a youngster. This trip has been a good reminder that there is still a long way to go!  I’m looking forward to all the hard work that’s ahead of me, Antonsen wrote on his Facebook page.
