Indonesia’s Simon Santoso remained lucky as he overpowered Korea’s Shon Wan Ho with a tight margin in Men’s Singles quarter-final of German Open GP Gold 2012 at Mulheim, Germany, on Friday, March 2.
Santoso, who has been positioned at number 11 in world rankings, had to employ all of his skills to get rid of Wan Ho, who is World Number 17 at the moment.
The Indonesian, who was also the fifth seed in the tournament, could not dominate the rallies as his rival also played at the same level.
However, Santoso remained lucky in the ending points of third game and won the contest with a dramatic margin.
Both shuttlers played fast badminton from the opening rallies and remained close on the score board. They did not commit unforced errors and displayed their impressive skills.
