...

But Ajay needs to be careful. He now faces the 20th ranked Lee Hyun Il of Korea, who is ranked 7 places higher than him. Not only that, Lee also has a 2-0 head-to-head record over the Indian. The last time Ajay faced him, he managed to win just a total of 17 points which was this year at the Canada Open.

...

Jayaram has so far won both his rounds in straight games and has looked to be in good form. It would be particularly pleasing to him given he had to retire last week at the Japan Open Superseries due to an ankle injury.

...

Ajay Jayaram is now the last remaining Indian at this tournament. He reached the final last year. Can he repeat that result or even go one better?
