[7] James Huang (TPE) 3-1 [3] Matthew Karwalski (AUS) 11-8, 4-11, 11-8, 14-12 (59 min)


James Huang upset!



1st game started with exchanging careful rallies mainly using driving strokes.  James did not miss the chance of Matthew’s short ball and smashed accurately and took the initiative of the game gradually. Matthew’s boast and drop were rather erratic and James took advantage of it and won this game.

In the 2nd game, Matthew switched his stroke from drive to boast and drop.

This made James to move back and forth and resulted in getting the initiative of the game and won this game. In the 3rd game, front half of the game pattern was same as that of 2nd game and Matthew led the game but James persistently caught up with pick up and forced Matthew to hit the ball preemptively and resulted in more errors of boasts and drops. Lastly, James with more rallying capability, took the initiative of the game and led the game by 2-1. In the 4th game, both committed lesser errors and the score was seesawing back and forth and went into tiebreaker. Matthew tried to move James right to left and back and forth but James kept up with this and using drives, James got the ticket for the next game with lesser errors.
