With his loss and Achanta Sharath Kamal's loss, which happened just an hour back, India's campaign comes to an end at the Qatar Open.
...
It was a mighty effort from the Indian but his performance graph took a nosedive in the sixth game and that invigorated the young Japanese to raise his level further in the final game as well. Just a few less unforced errors could have given the win to the Indian.

Nevertheless, this was still a confidence-boosting performance from the Indian and would stand him in good stead ahead of the Commonwealth Games.
