This was always coming once Srikanth surrendered the first game after dominating it for the most part. Jonatan Christie might have started slow but he came back well to pocket the first game 21-19, while he polished the match off without breaking a sweat in the second game.
Right then, 49 minutes is all it took for Christie to brush off Srikanth 21-19, 21-16 in the semifinals of Korea Open 2022.
