Both players got off the first set aggressively. The first game showcased the incredible mental strength that keeps Nguyen surviving when he was trailing 13-6. Nguyen responded with some high quality shots and slowly climbing back to score 11 of the next 12 points. He eventually took the first set 21-19 by hitting several jump smashes at the end of the game.
