A great win for Amal Raj and one more step towards world class standards from Indian players. Another great achievement was when young Harmeet Desai lost a golden opportunity to beat Singapore legend Gao Ning, who was ranked in the World top 20 for several years. Harmeet was leading 3-1 and lost 4-3.
Four Indian Table Tennis players reached the Men's main draw. Amal Raj progressed the farthest.
