Can Ajay continue with that attitude in the final game?

...

Ajay is clearly in the driver's seat now. There is a spring in his steps now and the hunger is back. He is now at 17-11.

...

...

Time is running out for the top seed!

...

Ajay is showing some of his fiery aggression but he is also undoing the good work through his errors. Wang is now ahead 4-2.

...

That's quite a tame surrender from the two-time defending champion. The spark is absolutely missing from his game. He needs a quick turnaround to have any chance of doing the hattrick.

...

Wang did not have to wait long to convert his game point. He does it on his first chance and takes the opener, 21-10.

...

Ajay tried to add his deft touch at the net and slow down Wang. In the end, he made a mistake and the point goes to Wang again. The second seed is looking more and more confident and is now at 20-10.

...

Ajay is looking slightly slow and a bit jaded too. Is it because of the long semi-final he played yesterday? He is trying his best to close the gap but currently his opponent's level is too high and he refuses to make many mistakes. Wang now leads 16-9.

...

Wang has now built an 8-point lead as he jumps to 14-6.

...

An angular smash deep into the corner of the court and Wang leads 10-4. He builds on it further to race to 11-5 at the interval.

...

A few errors are creeping up into Ajay's game and he let Wang extend the lead to 9-4.

...

The top seed is finally beginning to find open spaces in the court and trying to move the Chinese Taipei shuttler all over the court. Slowly and steadily, Ajay is getting back into it and trails 4-6.

...

The points are very fast. Jayaram initially struggling to counter Wang's pace and is currently trailing 1-5.

...

Wang has come prepared. He is aggressive right from the beginning and has raced to a 4-0 lead. 

...

The players have just arrived on the court and are warming up.

...

The preceding women's doubles match has gone the distance so there is still some more time to go for this match.

...

Good evening and welcome to the Sportskeeda liveblog of the Dutch Open final. The Dutch Open Grand Prix tournament continues to be a happy hunting ground for Indian shuttler Ajay Jayaram. The World No. 20 won it the last two years and is seeking a hattrick this year. Not only that, even in 2010, he had reached the final of this event where he finished as the runner-up.

This time he is the top seed and the obvious favourite to win the title. He faces the second seeded Tzu Wei Wang of Chinese Taipei, who is currently ranked 33rd. Jayaram leads their head-to-head meetings, 2-0 with his most recent win over Wang coming at the Swiss Open in March last year.
