The third seed Jorgensen injured his right knee early in the first set, but he decided to keep playing until he was forced to retire after trailing 4-9 in the second set. Jorgensen has defeated Chou five times prior to the world meet.

 

"At the beginning of first set, I already felt something was wrong below my right kneecap. Soon after that, I was having problems moving, and I quickly knew it was not a small injury," said the devastated Jorgensen.

 

"I can't do much about it, its badminton. But when you put almost 24 hours a day to improve and try to get to the top, it's heartbreaking," added Jorgensen.

 

"Right now, I just want to go home," said Jorgensen.

 

Chou Tien Chen faces Viktor Axelsen in the quarter-finals. Axelsen is the only Dane left in the World Championships men’s singles event.
