Showing great fitness levels, despite playing two matches on Thursday, India’s Ajay Jayaram moved into the semifinals of the 2015 Russian Open, after beating Wei Feng Chong of Malaysia 21-15 21-13 in the quarterfinal on Friday.
The opening game began on a topsy-turvy note, but at the crucial turn in the match came at the 10-10 mark, when Jayaram first took the lead and then maintained the pressure on his opponent, by chipping away with the points to eventually take the opening game 21-15.
The second game proved to be a much easier affair for the 27-year-old Indian, particularly after he took a 4-0 lead and then sustained that advantage to ensure that Chong had litte or no openings to capitalise on and eventually took the game 21-13 to move into the semifinals of the competition.
He will face Tommy Sugiarto of Indonesia in the final four.
