Ajay Jayaram crashed out of the Malaysia Open Super Series badminton tournament, going down to fifth-seeded Son Wan-ho of South Korea in the quarterfinals on Friday.
The 29-year-old, who was having a dream run at the tournament so far, failed to produce the goods and lost 18-21, 14-21 to Wan-ho in a match that lasted only 37 minutes.
Jayaram entered the quarterfinals with a hard-fought victory over Denmark’s Viktor Axelsen in Kuching on Thursday.
