NEW DELHI: India paddler Sathiyan Gnanasekaran suffered a straight-game loss to Chinese Taipei’s Chuang Chih-Yuan in the quarter-finals to crash out of the men’s singles event of the WTT Contender 2022 in Zagreb, Croatia, on Saturday.

Sathiyan, World No.34, lost 7-11, 9-11, 5-11 against the World No.18 Chih-Yuan. It was a disappointing result for the Indian, who had started his campaign with a stunning 6-11,12-10, 11-9, 12-10 win over World No.6 and reigning European champion Darko Jorgic of Slovenia. Sathiyan had then defeated 16-year-old Chen Yuanyu of China 11-9, 11-7, 12-10 to advance to the quarter-finals.

Sathiyan is part of the India squad for the upcoming Commonwealth Games, which is scheduled to be held in Birmingham from July 28 to August 8.
