Olympic champion and title favorite, Viktor Axelsen was knocked out of the BWF World Championships, dropping to Loh Kean Yew of Singapore 21-14, 9-21, 6-21. The Dane seemed fully out of types within the final two video games.
Axelsen credited his opponent and dismissed the defeat as one unhealthy day. “Just about all the pieces fell aside within the second and the third units. The primary recreation was OK, however then it was one thing I might reasonably neglect. Loh stepped up and I stepped down,” Axelsen stated after the match.
With prime star Kento Momota pulling out earlier than the event, it’s troublesome to select the winner in males’s singles however Axelsen’s exit will increase HS Prannoy‘s possibilities within the event.
Late on Monday, Prannoy surprised eighth seed Ng Ka Lengthy Angus of Hong Kong. Prannoy will face Daren Liew of Malaysia. If Prannoy will get previous Liew he’ll face a simple opponent within the quarterfinals, most likely eleventh seed Rasmus Gemke of Denmark.
Within the semifinals Prannoy could face Loh Kean Yew or Kantaphon Wangcharoen of Thailand. None of those gamers are in the identical class as Axelsen or Momota.
Prannoy has overwhelmed a number of world No.1s and champion shuttlers previously. In truth, Prannoy was the unsung hero of Indian males’s singles success story in 2017. The Kerala shuttler defeated prime gamers within the early rounds and cleared the trail for Srikanth and Sai Praneeth.
With a bit little bit of luck, Prannoy could find yourself on the rostrum.
