Valiant Kashyap bows out to Momota in semis
Incheon: Indian shuttler Parupalli Kashyap’s impressive run at the Korea Open Super 500 tournament came to an end after he lost to world No 1 Kento Momota of Japan in the men’s singles semifinals. Kashyap, who was the lone Indian left in fray, went down 13-21 15-21 to the two-time
ALMOST... reigning world champion Momota in 40 minutes.
The 2014 Commonwealth Games gold-medallist, who was promoted from the qualifying round, had last played Momota four years ago at the Indonesia Open. Kashyap had a 0-2 record against the Japanese prior to Saturday’s encounter.
