E The independent shuttler had harboured hopes of going all the way and winning what could have been a historic TC8 title but instead he was left to contemplate an unexpected 19-21, 21-11, 19-21 loss in 65 minutes to China's world No. 23 Zhao Junpeng in the third round. He did his best to shrug off the weight of expectations on his shoulders and saved three game points at 16-20 before losing 19-21. Prannoy had stunned another early favourite and compatriot Lakshya Sen 17- sport 21, 21-16, 21-17 in another third-round match. The Birmingham Commonwealth Games gold medallist ran out of gas towards the end against a determined Prannoy. Instead of giving any excuses, world No. 5 Lee Zii Jia owned up to his lack of sharpness in the game that saw him crash out of the World Championships at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium yesterday. Other exciting quarter-final match-ups are also in store as Viktor Axelsen of Denmark will face Anthony Ginting of Indonesia while Taiwan's Chou Tien-chen will take on another Indonesian Jonatan Christie. Defending champion Loh Kean Yew of Singapore will meet Kunlavut Vitidsarn of Thailand. Zii Jia came back strongly to win the second game and looked as though he had the match in his hands after taking a 14-10 lead in the decider but the spirited Junpeng refused to throw in the towel, dug deep and managed to pull off the huge upset. Visibly disappointed, Zii Jia admitted that mistakes had contributed to the narrow loss. “I prepared myself well mentally and worked on my attacking game. And today's result proved that my attacking game worked.” It could have been anyone's game at the crucial stage but it was Zii Jia's own mistakes that handed over the victory to casino Junpeng. “After this, I will have to keep working hard to stabilise my game,” added the Asian champion, who trains under coach Indra Wijaya. He has been entered for next week's Japan Open at the same venue but it's unsure whether he will be in the right frame of mind to compete after falling short of his own expectations to end the country's wait for a world title. “I don't consider this win as a revenge. In badminton, if you don't play well, you will lose and if you do well, you will win. I think it just depends on who is better prepared,” said Junpeng. Junpeng, who had lost to Zii Jia in the German Open in March, did not want to gloat over the win. The Chinese will next take on India's world No. 18 H.S. Prannoy for a place in the semi-finals. “I made a lot of mistakes today (yesterday). I should have been more patient,” said the 24-year-old Zii Jia, who reached the quarter-finals in the last two editions in Basel (2019) and Huelva (2021). In the opening match yesterday, the signs of nerves were all there when Zii Jia got off to a sluggish start. “Zhao played a very good game. Overall, he had better control and his net play was also good. A DREAM to become the country's first world champion has been dashed.
