    End of the Indian campaign in Korea

    The loss for Kidambi Srikanth also draws curtains on India's campaign at the Korean Open 2022. Srikanth and Sindhu were the only two surviving players coming into the penultimate day and both have been shown the exit door by Jonathan Christie and An Se Young respectively in straight games.

    Thank you for joining in for our coverage of the Korea Open 2022. See you next time!

    Kidambi Srikanth LOSES!

    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.

    Kidambi trying to hang on

    Kidambi Srikanth is bringing out those famous smashes and reduces the deficit to 14-15 before Christie gives the Indian a taste of his own medicine to edge ahead at 17-14. 

  • 9 April 2022 6:03 AM GMT

    11-8

    The same scoreline as in the first game at the mid-game break, but it is Jonatan Christie who has the advantage this time around. Srikanth was down on his haunches after that last point as he realises this contest is slipping away from him rather quickly.

    Christie on the charge

    Aggression from Jonatan Christie rightaway in the second game as he takes an early 3-0 lead. Srikanth seems to be out of ideas for now.

    Srikanth surrenders Game 1

    He started off so well did Srikanth, but Jonatan Christie has emerged on top at the end of the first game. The Indonesian pockets it 21-19 in 25 minutes. 

    Tough road ahead for Kidambi Srikanth after messing up this set.

    Errors creeping in from Srikanth

    The errors are slowly creeping inside Srikanth's game as he smashes one right into the net and helps Christie equalise at 15-15. The first game is beautifully poised. Who will prevail?

  • 9 April 2022 5:38 AM GMT

    11-8

    This is an excellent start for Srikanth against a higher-ranked Jonatan Christie. The Indian is moving well on the court and has a three-point advantage at the first mid-game break. The Indonesian, on the other hand, is slowly trying to find his groove.

  • 9 April 2022 5:30 AM GMT

    Good start for Srikanth

    Christie won the first point of the match, but Kidambi Srikanth has bounced back well and enjoys an early lead at 5-1.

    Kidambi Srikanth in action!

    The final Indian standing at the Korea Open 2022, Kidambi Srikanth is out on court number 1 alongside Indonesia's Jonatan Christie now.
