Sharath Blanked 4-0 in Men's Singles TT Semifinal

Glasgow

Achanta Sharath Kamal proved to be no match for Singapore's Jian Zhan as the Indian was blanked 4-0 in a one-sided men's singles table tennis semifinal match in the 20th Commonwealth Games here today.

The top Indian paddler lost 11-6 11-6 11-6 11-8 to his 32-year-old opponent from Singapore at the Scotstown Campus.

That the 32-year-old from Chennai, who had won a gold in the 2006 Melbourne Games, struggled to match up to Zhan's play could be gauged from the fact that the match was over in just 27 minutes. The scoreline also reflects the one-sided nature of the match.

Kamal had earlier teamed up with Anthony Amalraj to win a silver medal for India after losing to Singapore's Gao Ning and Hu Li in the final of the men's doubles table tennis event.

Sharath and Amalraj squandered a game lead to lose 1-3 (11-8 7-11 9-11 5-11) against the Singaporan duo to settle for the silver medal.
