BWF World Tour Finals 2018: Sameer Verma loses to Shi Yuqi; misses out on final berth
Sameer Verma crashed out of the BWF World Tour Finals 2018 in Guangzhou, China after suffering a loss to Shi Yuqi.
Verma lost 12-21, 22-20, 21-17 to World no 2 Shi Yuqi. Verma won the opening game and looked like heading to the finals with ease but Yuqi staged a comeback to win the next game–a closely fought one–by a 22-20 margin.
Verma tried to shrug off the loss but failed to regain the momentum against the Chinese, who continued the way he did in the second set, winning the third and final one 21-17 to make an entry into the finals.
