Goh V Shem needed medical timeouts when trailing 3-7 in the second set, but was ultimately unable to continue the match and had to concede defeat after falling behind 7-11.

"I was feeling the pain at the beginning of the first game when I tried to return shots from the baseline," said V Shem.

"I injured by back at last month's Glasgow Commonwealth Games, but I've decided to play in the World Championships since this is our last stint together as a pair, and it was sad that we ended our partnership this way," added V Shem.
